enterotoxigenic escherichia coli associated with infant diarrhoea in galicia, north-western assess the role of enterotoxigenic escherichia coli (etec) in infantile diarrhoea, 482 children with diarrhoea and 103 healthy controls, from three localities of galicia, north-western spain, were investigated between 1985 and 1988. rotavirus (37.3%) and salmonella spp. (12.8%) were the most common causal agents, followed by etec (3.9%), campylobacter jejuni (2.3%), shigella spp. (0.9%) and yersinia enterocolitica (0.5%). etec were significantly more frequently isolated from children with dia ...19911895327
serotypes, virulence genes, and intimin types of shiga toxin (verotoxin)-producing escherichia coli isolates from human patients: prevalence in lugo, spain, from 1992 through 1999.we have analyzed the prevalence of shiga toxin-producing escherichia coli (stec) in stool specimens of patients with diarrhea or other gastrointestinal alterations from the xeral-calde hospital of lugo city (spain). stec strains were detected in 126 (2.5%) of 5,054 cases investigated, with a progressive increase in the incidence from 0% in 1992 to 4.4% in 1999. stec o157:h7 was isolated in 24 cases (0.5%), whereas non-o157 stec strains were isolated from 87 patients (1.7%). stec strains were (af ...200414715771
presence of listeria, arcobacter, and campylobacter spp. in dairy farms in spain.bacteria from genera listeria, campylobacter and arcobacter are potentially zoonotic pathogens for humans and they may be detected in dairy cattle farms. in this study the presence of these bacteria was considered in dairy cattle farms in galicia (northwest of spain). in the first part of the study, bulk tank milk samples were collected to determine the herd prevalences of listeria spp. in 98 dairy farms. additionally 83 silage samples and 97 faeces samples of lactating cows were collected. l. m ...201020135911
