A Compendium of Shigatoxigenic Escherichia coli: Origins, Bacteriological and Clinical Data on the Serogroups, Serotypes and Untypeable Strains of E. coli Reported between 1980 and 2017, Excluding O157:H7
Abstract: The purpose of this paper was to create a compendium of serogroups, serotypes and untypeable strains of Shigatoxigenic/verotoxigenic (STEC/VTEC) Escherichia coli. The compendium includes the origins, bacteriological and clinical data on this important group of microbes. The collection of STEC/VTEC data extends from 1980 to 2017, and excludes STEC/VTEC O157:H7. A total of 499 papers were discovered and documented to create the compendium which includes all the serogroups and serotypes beginning with serogroup O1 through to serogroup O211 and includes O non-typeable strains and ill-defined strains including serotype O"54071":H7. The paper summarises the findings of 8010 E. coli isolates and includes all details including source (human or animal), and clinical condition/disease, serogroup and serotypes, country of origin, year reported, and the author(s) with cited references. Some twenty clinical conditions were shown in association with 4320 serotypes/and untypeable strains. The compendium is a record of an important group of STEC/ VTEC and should provide a useful resource for both researchers and clinicians.
