  • [Travelers' diarrhea]. [Review]
    Dtsch Med Wochenschr. 2013 Aug; 138(33):1673-83; quiz 1684-6.Burchard GD, Hentschke M, … Nothdurft HD
  • Travelers diarrhea affects millions of tourists each year. Most cases are caused by a variety of bacterial enteropathogens: toxigenic Escherichia coli, Campylobacter, Shigella, Salmonella, Aeromonas, Plesiomonas and non-cholera vibrios. Treatment may include antibacterial therapy with either ciprofloxacin, or azitrhomycin, or rifaximin. Viral pathogens such as norovirus usually cause short-term i…
  • Characterization of an actin-targeting ADP-ribosyltransferase from Aeromonas hydrophila. [Journal Article]
    J Biol Chem. 2012 Oct 26; 287(44):37030-41.Shniffer A, Visschedyk DD, … Merrill AR
  • The mono-ADP-ribosyltransferase (mART) toxins are contributing factors to a number of human diseases, including cholera, diphtheria, traveler's diarrhea, and whooping cough. VahC is a cytotoxic, actin-targeting mART from Aeromonas hydrophila PPD134/91. This bacterium is implicated primarily in diseases among freshwater fish species but also contributes to gastrointestinal and extraintestinal infe…
  • New Developments in Traveler's Diarrhea. [Journal Article]
    Gastroenterol Hepatol (N Y). 2011 Feb; 7(2) la Cabada Bauche J, Dupont HL
  • Traveler's diarrhea (TD) is a crucial area for research, as it affects millions of tourists each year and creates a large economic burden. More than 60% of TD cases are caused by a variety of bacterial enteropathogens: diarrhea-producing Escherichia coli, Shigella, Campylobacter, Salmonella, Aeromonas, Plesiomonas, and noncholera Vibrios. Noroviruses are also an important cause of morbidity among…
  • Epidemiology of travelers' diarrhea in Thailand. [Journal Article]
    J Travel Med. 2009 May-Jun; 16(3):179-85.Chongsuvivatwong V, Chariyalertsak S, … Steffen R
  • CONCLUSIONS: Phuket and Chiang Mai should not be considered high-risk destinations for development of TD among US and European travelers to Thailand. In the study, Aeromonas, ETEC, and Vibrio spp were the most frequent enteropathogens identified.
  • Global etiology of travelers' diarrhea: systematic review from 1973 to the present. [Review]
    Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2009 Apr; 80(4):609-14.Shah N, DuPont HL, Ramsey DJ
  • Fifty-one published studies of travelers' diarrhea (TD) were examined to look for regional differences in pathogens identified. Enterotoxigenic E. coli was detected in 1,678/5,518 (30.4%) of TD cases overall, with rates in Latin America/Caribbean (L. America), Africa, south Asia, and Southeast Asia of 1,109/3,302 (33.6%), 389/1,217 (31.2%), 153/499 (30.6%), and 36/500 (7.2%), respectively (P < 0.…
  • Appendicitis associated with travelers' diarrhea caused by Aeromonas sobria. [Case Reports]
    J Travel Med. 2009 Mar-Apr; 16(2):132-3.Lim PL
  • Aeromonas species is an infrequent pathogen causing travelers' diarrhea and gastroenteritis. No human case of appendicitis has been reported as a complication of Aeromonas infection until now. We describe a case of acute appendicitis associated with Aeromonas sobria infection acquired in Cebu, Philippines.
  • [Diarrhea from the infectologist's point of view]. [Review]
    Orv Hetil. 2009 Feb 22; 150(8):353-61.Nemes Z
  • Gastroenteritis is a nonspecific term for various pathologic states of the gastrointestinal tract. Gastroenteritis causing pathogens are the second leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In the developed countries diarrhea is the most common reason for missing work, while in the developing world, it is a leading cause of death. Internationally, the mortality rate is 5-10 million deat…
  • [Aeromonas spp. as the causative agent of acute diarrhoea in children under 1 year of age]. [Journal Article]
    Epidemiol Mikrobiol Imunol. 2006 Aug; 55(3):92-8.Krejcí E, Andelová A, … Sedlácek I
  • CONCLUSIONS: Four cases of acute gastroenteritis in small children document that aeromonads are not rare and can cause serious health problems. However, epidemiological links remain unclear. We did not prove correlation between the four serious cases of acute diarrhoea and specific Aeromonas species but the results suggest the predominant role of A. caviae.
  • Epidemiology, etiology and pathophysiology of traveler's diarrhea. [Review]
    Digestion. 2006; 73 Suppl 1:102-8.Gascón J
  • Traveler's diarrhea (TD) is the most frequent health problem in travelers to developing countries. Several personal and environmental risk factors are at the basis of TD acquisition and are discussed in this paper. TD is caused by a wide range of infectious organisms, ETEC and EAEC bacteria strains being the main enteropathogens incriminated in TD. Other causative bacteria are: Shigella spp., Cam…
  • Aeromonas spp. and traveler's diarrhea: clinical features and antimicrobial resistance. [Journal Article]
    Emerg Infect Dis. 2003 May; 9(5):552-5.Vila J, Ruiz J, … Gascon J
  • Traveler's diarrhea is the most common health problem of international travelers. We determined the prevalence of Aeromonas spp. associated with traveler's diarrhea and analyzed the geographic distribution, clinical features, and antimicrobial susceptibility. Aeromonas spp. were isolated as a cause of traveler's diarrhea in 18 (2%) of 863 patients. A. veronii biotype sobria was isolated in nine p…
  • Incidence and clinical symptoms of Aeromonas-associated travellers' diarrhoea in Tokyo. [Journal Article]
    Epidemiol Infect. 1997 Oct; 119(2):121-6.Yamada S, Matsushita S, … Kudoh Y
  • In a survey examining the causes of travellers' diarrhoea treated in Tokyo between July 1986 and December 1995, Aeromonas species were isolated from 1265 (5.5%) of 23,215 travellers returning from developing countries. Aeromonas species were the fourth most frequent enteropathogen isolated, following enterotoxigenic E. coli (8.5%), Salmonella spp. (7.6%) and Plesiomonas shigelloides (5.6%). Aerom…
  • Pathogenic Microorganisms Associated with Fresh Produce. [Journal Article]
    J Food Prot. 1996 Feb; 59(2):204-216.Beuchat LR
  • The presence of numerous genera of spoilage bacteria, yeasts and molds, and an occasional pathogen on fresh produce has been recognized for many years. Several outbreaks of human gastroenteritis have been linked to the consumption of contaminated fresh vegetables and, to a lesser extent, fruits. Salads containing raw vegetables have been identified as vehicles of traveler's diarrhea, an illness s…
  • Role of aeromonas isolated from feces of Finnish patients. [Journal Article]
    Scand J Infect Dis. 1995; 27(3):207-10.Rautelin H, Sivonen A, … Kosunen TU
  • Aeromonas species were isolated from 249/13,027 (1.9%) stool samples submitted to the Dept. of Bacteriology and Immunology, University of Helsinki, during 1 year, to be cultured for bacterial enteropathogens. Aeromonas was the third most common enteropathogen isolated, after campylobacter (3.6%) and salmonella (3.3%). Isolates and clinical information from 234 Aeromonas patients were available fo…
  • Association of Aeromonas spp. with travellers' diarrhoea in Finland. [Journal Article]
    J Med Microbiol. 1995 Jan; 42(1):26-31.Hänninen ML, Salmi S, … Siitonen A
  • The association of Aeromonas spp. with travellers' diarrhoea was studied among 978 Finnish tourists travelling to Morocco in winter (n = 398) and autumn (n = 580) in 1989. Fifty-five isolates from diarrhoeal patients with (n = 16) or without (n = 39) a recent travelling history in a developing country were also included. In Morocco, Aeromonas spp. were isolated from 8.7% of patients with diarrhoe…
  • Chronic diarrhea due to a single strain of Aeromonas caviae. [Case Reports]
    Eur J Clin Microbiol Infect Dis. 1995 Jan; 14(1):51-3.Rautelin H, Hänninen ML, … Valtonen V
  • Over a period of 17 months, Aeromonas caviae was cultured 15 times as the sole enteropathogen from the feces of a man who had developed chronic diarrhea after traveling to Turkey. Determination of rRNA gene restriction patterns confirmed that the seven isolates of Aeromonas caviae studied were identical (hybridization group [HG]4). After therapy with ciprofloxacin for four weeks, the patient was …
