a cohort study of enteric campylobacter infection in children from birth to two years in bangui (central african republic).a cohort of 111 children from bangui, central african republic, was followed for enteric campylobacter infection from birth until the age of 2 years. stools were examined at each episode of diarrhoea, and bi-weekly up to the age of 6 months irrespective of the presence of diarrhoea. 349 episodes of diarrhoeal illness were recorded (1.6 per child-year). campylobacters were isolated from 41 (11.7%) of the 349 episodes, but in half of them another enteric pathogen was also isolated. campylobacters ...19902345912
biotype and lior serogroup distribution of enteric campylobacter isolated from children in bangui (central african republic), and comparison with penner serotypes.the new extended biotyping scheme of lior as well as the slide agglutination technique were applied to 209 strains of enteric campylobacter isolated from children in bangui (central african republic). three biotypes of c. jejuni and 2 biotypes of c. coli were identified among the strains; 31.1% were c. jejuni i, 11% c. jejuni ii, 2.4% c. jejuni iii, 44% c. coli i and 11.5% c. coli ii. we were able to serotype 71.3% of the strains with 20 immune sera prepared against strains of campylobacter isol ...19892623366
diarrheal morbidity and mortality in children in the central african republic.diarrheal morbidity and mortality in children less than 5 years old were studied in bangui, central african republic, by a cluster survey. we found a high prevalence of diarrheal disease with an estimated annual incidence of 7 episodes of diarrhea per child per year. the estimated annual mortality rate for children less than 5 years old was 28.6 per 1,000 and 85.8 per 1,000 for infants; 51.6% of deaths were reported to be associated with diarrhea. during the survey, stool specimens were collecte ...19873578657
prospective study of enteric campylobacter infections in children from birth to 6 months in the central african republic.a survey of enteric campylobacter infections was performed in bangui, central african republic, with a cohort of 127 children from birth to 6 months of age by biweekly culture of stools; 82 infections were observed, and 41.7% of the children presented at least 1 infection before 6 months of age. only 15.9% of the infected children had a diarrheic syndrome; moreover, 61.5% of these diarrheic children had another enteropathogen associated with campylobacter species. in about half the cases, campyl ...19873584419
distribution and serotypes of campylobacter jejuni and campylobacter coli in enteric campylobacter strains isolated from children in the central african republic.one hundred eighty-five enteric campylobacter strains isolated from diarrheic or healthy children in bangui (central african republic) were studied to determine their species and serotypes. c. coli was identified in 38.9% of all strains and in 43.9% of strains from diarrheic children. by the hemagglutination technique for heat-stable antigens, 73.5% of the strains could be serotyped. of the typeable strains, 75% were distributed among 13 more frequent serotypes. c. coli serotype pen 37,56 was th ...19863958146
etiologies of acute, persistent, and dysenteric diarrheas in adults in bangui, central african republic, in relation to human immunodeficiency virus serostatus.a study of the etiologies of diarrhea in adults in relation to their human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) serostatus and number of cd4+ cells was carried out in the central african republic. in cases and controls, multi-parasitism was observed. salmonella spp. were identified mainly during acute diarrhea, with 50% of the s. enteritidis isolated during the study being responsible for septicemia and/or urinary tract infection in immunodeficient patients. enteroaggregative escherichia coli (eaggec) w ...19989886215
