Isolation of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157 from the inflowing waste water of the sewage disposal plants

Study period:2000 - 0
Research overview:
The strains of enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli O157 (O157) flow in the sewage with the feces of patients and healthy carriers. The isolating status of O157 strains in the sewage is considered to indicate indirectly the actual situation of the latent O157 patients and carriers in the region and the possibility to be an index for the O157 prevalence. Therefore, survey is carried out on the actual situation of O157 pollution of the sewage.
