antigen profile of helicobacter pylori strains isolated from peptic ulcer patients in dhaka, bangladesh.the whole-cell-extract and the acid-extract preparations of helicobacter pylori strains isolated from peptic ulcer patients and the nctc 11638 control strain were studied to compare their antigen profiles. besides, the anti-h. pylori-antibody profile in serum from h. pylori-infected peptic ulcer patients were also studied to define the antigen stimulating specific anti-h. pylori-antibody response in the infected patients. the whole-cell extract (wce) and the acid-extract (ae) preparations showed ...19938031286
case-control study of enteropathogens associated with childhood diarrhea in dhaka, bangladesh.the international centre for diarrhoeal disease research, bangladesh, is a major center for research into diarrheal diseases. the center treats more than 100,000 patients a year. to obtain useful information representative of all patients, a surveillance system in which a 4% systematic sample of all patients is studied in detail, including etiological agents of diarrhea, was installed in october 1979. the first paper on etiology for the surveillance patients was published in 1982, which identifi ...199910523534
epidemiologic and clinical characteristics of acute diarrhea with emphasis on entamoeba histolytica infections in preschool children in an urban slum of dhaka, bangladesh.the epidemiology, clinical features, nutritional status, and causative agents of diarrhea were studied in 289 bangladeshi children (147 boys and 142 girls) 2-5 years old. the use of improved diagnostic tests for amebiasis enabled for the first time analysis of the contribution of entamoeba histolytica to total diarrheal illness in this community setting. the average incidence rate of diarrhea was 1.8/child-year, and the average number of diarrheal days was 3.7 days/child-year over an average obs ...200314640500
diarrhoea in elderly people: aetiology, and clinical characteristics.we examined the characteristics of elderly people attending the dhaka hospital of icddr,b. the hospital has a diarrhoeal disease surveillance system that enrols a 2% systematic sample of all patients visiting the hospital. we reviewed data of all patients enrolled into the surveillance system (n = 13,782) over the period 1996-2001 to identify patients aged 60 y and above for inclusion into the current study (4% of all surveillance patients; n = 478). v. cholerae o1 was the most common enteric pa ...200415119366
