Abstract

Risk sensitivity is a predisposition to rate all risks as large. Miller and Shelby (2009) examined hunters' risk sensitivity relative to chronic wasting disease (CWD), Mad cow, E. coli, Salmonella, Lyme disease, and West Nile virus (WNV). This article replicated their analysis and compared risk...

Abstract

During 2000-2014, public health officials from 35 U.S. states and Guam reported 140 untreated recreational water-associated outbreaks. These outbreaks resulted in at least 4958 cases of disease and 2 deaths. Among the 95 outbreaks with a confirmed infectious aetiology, enteric pathogens caused 80...

Abstract

An NDM-1 carbapenemase-producing Escherichia coli isolate of sequence type 131 (ST131) that belonged to phylogenetic group B2 was obtained from a patient with a urinary tract infection who returned to the United States after a recent hospitalization while visiting India. NDM-1-producing E. coli...

Abstract

Background: Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) are an important cause of diarrhea and the major cause of postdiarrheal hemolytic uremic syndrome. Non-O157 STEC infections are being recognized with greater frequency because of changing laboratory practices. Methods: Foodborne Diseases...

Abstract

The genetic backgrounds of 24 enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) strains from Mexico and Guatemala expressing heat-stable toxin (ST) and coli surface antigen 6 (CS6) were analyzed. US travelers to these countries and resident children in Guatemala were infected by ETEC strains of sequence type ...

Abstract

From international tourists to war-displaced refugees, more people are on the move than ever before. This provides the opportunity for a variety of antimicrobial-resistant bacteria to be carried from one geographic location to another. The Enterobacteriaceae are among the most important causes of...

Abstract

Background: We performed this study (1) to determine the prevalence of community-associated extended spectrum beta-lactamase producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBLPE) colonization and infection in New York City (NYC); (2) to determine the prevalence of newly-acquired ESBLPE during travel; (3) to look...

Abstract

Background. Approximately 40% of US travelers to less developed countries experience diarrheal illness. Using data from the Foodborne Diseases Active Surveillance Network (FoodNet), we describe travel-associated enteric infections during 2004-2009, characterizing the patients, pathogens, and...

Abstract

No cause of one-third of travellers' diarrhoea (TD) cases can be detected despite microbiologic assessment. We propose that these pathogen-negative TD cases include undetected enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC). As a standard in diagnostic microbiology, samples of five E. coli colonies were...

Abstract

Background. Up to 60% of the US visitors to Mexico develop travelers' diarrhea (TD). In Mexico, rates of diarrhea have been associated with the rainy season and increase in ambient temperature. However, the seasonality of the various diarrheagenic Escherichia coli pathotypes in travelers has not...
