Cholera and Escherichia coli Diarrhea

  • Herbert L. DuPont
  • Larry K. Pickering
Part of the Current Topics in Infectious Disease book series (CTID)


Few diseases have been characterized more clearly than cholera and enterotoxigenic E. coli (ETEC) diarrhea. During the 1960s, a number of landmark studies helped to elucidate the mechanisms of disease production in naturally acquired and laboratory induced cholera, and cholera toxin was purified and characterized. In the 1970s, research interest turned to the study of diarrhea produced by ETEC. Success with E. coli has stimulated renewed interest in cholera research. Many workers in these areas remain optimistic that both cholera and ETEC diarrhea may one day be controlled by immunoprophylactic measures.
