Epidemiology of ST131 in Besançon University Hospital

2016-08-04 05:53:22 | BioPortfolio


The sequence type 131 (ST131) is a predominant lineage among extraintestinal pathogenic Escherichia coli. It plays a major role in the worldwide dissemination of E. coli that produce extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL). The aim of this study was to describe the epidemiology of ESBL producing ST131clonal group in our university hospital. All patients with an infection due to ESBL E. coli will be prospectively included for a 2-year period. ST131 isolates will be identified and risk factors associated to ST131 will be determined in comparison to non-ST131 ESBL E. coli.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Strains of Escherichia coli that possess virulence traits which allow them to invade, colonize, and induce disease in tissues outside of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. They are a cause of URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS (UROPATHOGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI); neonatal MENINGITIS; SEPSIS; PNEUMONIA; and SURGICAL WOUND INFECTION.

Strains of ESCHERICHIA COLI that are a subgroup of SHIGA-TOXIGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI. They cause non-bloody and bloody DIARRHEA; HEMOLYTIC UREMIC SYNDROME; and hemorrhagic COLITIS. An important member of this subgroup is ESCHERICHIA COLI O157-H7.

Infections with bacteria of the species ESCHERICHIA COLI.

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent or treat both enterotoxigenic and enteropathogenic Escherichia coli infections.

Strains of Escherichia coli that preferentially grow and persist within the urinary tract. They exhibit certain virulence factors and strategies that cause urinary tract infections.
