EHEC (Entero-Haemorrhagic Escherichia coli) is a pathogen present in cattle with major risk of contamination in meat , dairy and produce.
It causes serious illnesses in consumers (hemorraghic colistis, hemolytic-uremic syndrome). Pathogenic / Diarrhoegenic E.coli (DEC) are categorized into 6 pathotypes according to the clinical evidences and expressed virulence factors:- STEC (Shiga toxin producing E.coli) or VTEC or EHEC- ETEC (Enterotoxigenic E.coli)- EPEC (Enteropathogenic E.coli)- EAEC (Enteroaggregative E.coli)- EIEC (Enteroinvasive E.coli)- DAEC (Diffusely adherent E.coli)STEC and Verocytotoxic E. coli (VTEC) are synonymous. Enterohemorrhagic E. coli (EHEC) are a sub-group of them. 2 reference methods are available: USDA-MLG 5B & ISO TS 1336. But still too many false alarms and a complex protocol.Want to learn more about EHEC / STEC ? Contact us & ask for more info
