Serum response of Escherichia coli strains causing dyspepsia and urinary tract infection: relation to alpha-hemolysin production and O type.

By L Siegfried, M Kmetová, V Janigová, M Sasinka and V Takácová


A total of 109 alpha-hemolytic and 104 nonhemolytic Escherichia coli isolates from children with dyspepsia and urinary tract infections were investigated for resistance to the bactericidal activity of human serum. A significantly higher proportion of serum resistance was found in alpha-hemolytic E. coli isolates than in nonhemolytic isolates (P < 0.01). An association between the titer of alpha-hemolysin produced and serum resistance was found
