Influence of the age and sex of human hosts on the distribution of Escherichia coli ECOR groups and virulence traits

Gordon, David; Stern, Steven; Collignon, Peter


Escherichia coli were isolated from the faeces of 266 individuals living in the Canberra region of Australia. The isolates were characterized for their ECOR group membership (A, B1, B2 or D) and for the presence of 29 virulence-associated traits. Overall, 19.5% of the strains were members of group A, 12.4% B1, 45.1% B2 and 22.9% D. The frequency with which strains belonging to the four ECOR groups were observed varied with the age and sex of the hosts from which they were isolated. In males,...[Show more]
