viruses and bacteria in pediatric diarrhea in thailand: a study of multiple antibiotic-resistant enteric pathogens.children with diarrhea admitted to a rehydration ward of a children's hospital in bangkok were investigated to determine the prevalence of enteric pathogens, the extent of children's previous antibiotic therapy, and the frequency of plasmid-mediated antibiotic resistance among infecting bacteria. rotavirus (36%), enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (18%), shigella (9%), salmonella (6%), campylobacter jejuni/coli (4%), and vibrio cholerae (2%) infections were among 105 children with diarrhea. antibi ...19816275727
a longitudinal study of the prevalence of bacterial enteric pathogens among adults with diarrhea in bangkok, thailand.six hundred sixty adults with diarrhea treated at bamrasnaradura hospital, bangkok, thailand were investigated to determine the prevalence, seasonality, and severity of diarrhea associated with bacterial enteric pathogens in 1980 and 1981. shigella were isolated from 27% and vibrio parahaemolyticus from 19% of the patients studied. enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (5%), salmonella (3%), non-01 vibrio cholerae (3%), campylobacter jejuni (1%), and group f vibrio (less than 1%) were isolated from a ...19836370564

antimicrobial resistance of campylobacter species isolated from edible bivalve molluscs purchased from bangkok markets, thailand.campylobacter species have been recognized as the most commonly reported cause of bacterial gastroenteritis in humans. the increase of resistance rates to drugs of choice used for treatment in campylobacteriosis is becoming a public health concern. in parallel, the increased use of antimicrobials in aquaculture may lead to the emergence of resistant microorganisms and is likely to cause additional health risk to humans through food consumption. the study assesses the presence of antimicrobial re ...200919622033
enteric pathogen sampling of tourist restaurants in bangkok,' diarrhea (td) is the most prevalent disorder affecting travelers to developing countries. thailand is considered "moderately risky" for td acquisition, but the risk by city visited or behavior of the visitor has yet to be definitely defined. restaurant eating is consistently associated with the acquisition of diarrhea while traveling, and pathogen-free meals serve as a marker of public health success. this study seeks to ascertain a traveler's risk of exposure to certain bacterial gas ...201020412179
