Special Issue: Abstracts from the 8th International Symposium on Shiga Toxin (Verocytotoxin) Producing Escherichia coli Infections, 6-9 May 2012, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
The research at this meeting focuses on a group of bacteria that reside in the intestine of cattle, and which contaminate the environment and many different kinds of food. Human infection occurs in many different countries and in humans of all ages. Escherichia coli are a species of bacteria that varies widely in genomic and phenotypic characteristics. The toxin produced by this organism can cause diarrheal disease but can also lead to more severe damage to blood vessels, kidneys, brain and can produce thrombi.
There were 540 attendees from 41 countries. The data, coming in the aftermath of the tragic E. coli O104:H4 outbreak in Germany last year, were voluminous and provocative, and the interchanges were friendly and robust. In this issue, the VTEC Meeting now shares with the world a glimpse of the cutting edge research being conducted. Zoonoses and Public Health, a journal dedicated to the interface between human health, veterinary biology and disease control, is delighted to provide this resource. - Phillip I.
