A prospective study of melioidosis after environmental exposure of healthy participants to Burkholderia pseudomallei during a muddy endurance challenge.
Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2015 Apr; 92(4):773-5.AJ

Abstract

In a prospective study of 123 healthy adults competing in a mud-exposing endurance challenge in the melioidosis-endemic tropical north of the Northern Territory of Australia, there were no asymptomatic seroconversions to Burkholderia pseudomallei using indirect hemagglutination assay. However, one competitor developed melioidosis attributable to infection acquired during the event.
