Entry
H00280                      Disease                                

Name
Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) infection
Description
Enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) infection is one of the main causes of infantile diarrhea in developing countries and an important etiologic agent for traveler's diarrhea. ETEC strains colonize the small intestine, secrete heat-labile (cholera toxin-like) and heat-stable enterotoxins, and cause watery diarrhea.
