microbiological agents associated with childhood diarrhoea in the dry zone of sri lanka.between march and july, 1987, faecal specimens from 371 diarrhoeal children reporting to four hospitals in the district of kurunegala, sri lanka and from 121 controls with other diseases were investigated for enteric pathogens. all specimens were tested for shigella spp, salmonella spp and enteropathogenic escherichia coli (epec). in addition, parasitic pathogens, heat labile enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (etec lt), campylobacter and rotavirus were sought among subsamples of the cases and con ...19902187225
a study of campylobacter fetus subsp. jejuni strains isolated from the stools of diarrhoeic children in sri lanka.nine strains of campylobacter fetus subsp. jejuni were isolated from the stools of diarrhoeic children in colombo (sri lanka). the morphology of most of the strains was typical but three strains produced a spreading film of growth. no discrete domed colonies were seen. all were able to grow in a candle jar, and in a medium containing 1% glycine. all produced hydrogen sulphide. all were susceptible to ampicillin, carbenicillin, tetracycline, chloramphenicol, neomycin, erythromycin, gentamicin and ...19846464104

survey and comparison of major intestinal flora in captive and wild ring-tailed lemur (lemur catta) populations.a survey to identify the major intestinal species of aerobic bacteria, protozoa and helminths was conducted on captive and wild populations of ring-tailed lemurs (lemur catta). samples were collected from 50 captive lemurs at 11 zoological institutions in the united states. in madagascar, 98 aerobic bacteria samples and 99 parasite samples were collected from eight sites chosen to cover a variety of populations across the species range. identical collection, preservation and lab techniques were ...200817854057
prevalence and risk factors for campylobacter spp. in chicken broiler flocks in reunion island (indian ocean).our objectives were to determine campylobacter prevalence in broiler chicken flocks in reunion island and to define specific practices associated with the presence of campylobacter spp. infection in reunionese broiler flocks. fifty broiler flocks were studied in reunion island from may 2007 to february 2009. a questionnaire was submitted to the farmers and samples of fresh droppings were collected to assess the flock's campylobacter status. fifty four percent of the flocks were infected by campy ...201121511349
