Isolation of Vibrio cholerae O1 strains similar to pre-seventh pandemic EI Tor strains during an outbreak of gastrointestinal disease in an island resort of Fiji
Five strains of Vibrio cholerae O1, one each from an Australian and a New Zealand tourist with gastrointestinal illness returning from an island resort in Fiji and the remaining three from water sources located in the same resort, were extensively characterized. Conventional phenotypic traits that are used for biotyping of O1 V. cholerae categorized all five strains as belonging to the El Tor biotype. Genetic screening of 11 regions that are associated with virulence in V. cholerae showed...[Show more]
