< em > Escherichia coli < /em > encoding Shiga toxin subtype Stx2f causing human infections in England, 2015-2022

Conclusions. Certain serotypes of E. coli harbouring stx2f cause severe clinical outcomes, including STEC-HUS. Public health advice and possible interventions are limited, as little is known about the animal and environmental reservoirs and transmission routes. We recommend more comprehensive and standardized collection of microbiological and epidemiological data, and routine sharing of sequencing data between public health agencies worldwide.PMID:37294302 | DOI:10.1099/jmm.0.001707
