Abstract / Description of output

While many factors have been associated with human EHEC infection, the full role these play in both human and ruminant hosts are not yet clear despite much investigation. It is hoped that the continued intense international research effort into EHEC will provide further insights into the commensal versus pathogenic lifestyles of E. coli and lead to approaches to reduce EHEC carriage in ruminants as well as prevent or treat human disease.
