bacterial pathogens associated with diarrhoea on the island of crete.stool specimens from 3,600 diarrhoeal patients from the island of crete, greece, were examined for bacterial pathogens, during a three-year period (1992-1994). one or more pathogens were identified in 826 patients (22.9%), more often from children. salmonella spp. were the most frequently isolated organisms in 13.6% of the patients, followed by campylobacter in 4.7%, and enteropathogenic escherichia coli (epec) in 3.9%. yersinia enterocolitica was found in 0.7%, shigella spp. in 0.7% and aeromon ...19979384274
a 5-year study of the bacterial pathogens associated with acute diarrhoea on the island of crete, greece, and their resistance to antibiotics.during a 5-year period (1995-1999) a total of 7090 stool samples obtained from patients with acute diarrhoea, mostly community-acquired, were examined for bacterial pathogens, in the greek island of crete. one or more enteric pathogens were isolated from 987 patients (14%). salmonella enterica were the most commonly isolated bacteria (6%), followed by campylobacter spp. (4.2%), and enteropathogenic escherichia coli (epec) (1.8%). yersinia enterocolitica (0.6%), shigella spp. (0.3%), and aeromona ...200312705628
a waterborne campylobacter jejuni outbreak on a greek island.a case-control and a case-crossover study were performed to investigate a campylobacter jejuni outbreak in crete in 2009. most cases originated from rural areas, served by a different water-supply system from that of the adjacent town. thirty-seven cases and 79 controls were interviewed; cases were interviewed for two different time periods for the case-crossover study. stool cultures, pfge and mlst subtyping were run in human samples. univariately, consumption of tap water was associated with c ...201020836911
long-term trends in the epidemiology and resistance of childhood bacterial enteropathogens in crete.in this study, we investigated the long-term trends in the epidemiology and susceptibility of bacterial enteropathogens among children in a well-defined area of adequate health standards. the study included all children younger than 14 years of age treated for enteritis at heraklion university general hospital on the island of crete during the 18-year period from january 1993 to december 2010. stool specimens were tested for salmonella, shigella, campylobacter, enteropathogenic escherichia coli ...201122207394
Empiric antimicrobial therapy and infectious diarrhea. Do we need local guidelines?In the management of acute diarrhea, administration of antibiotics may be indicated. Appropriate antimicrobial therapy can shorten illness, reduce morbidity and can be life-saving in invasive infections. Emergence of microbial strains resistant to commonly used antibiotics means that treatment failures may become common. Because of changing patterns of resistance, knowledge of recent local patterns of susceptibility can guide the initial choice of antibiotics.201121925045
