The unusual combination of virulence factors of STEC and EAEC
, already described in a group of STEC O111:H2 from an outbreak of HUS in France in 1996 (10), might confer a high degree of virulence to these strains.
Goh said the EAEC
has always been a good idea, but at that time some countries, including Singapore, were not in favor of the initiative because they wanted to get Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum going.
He said while Japan and South Korea have hesitated in agreeing to form an EAEC

. Armenia needs to pass all the integration procedures, as a high rate of signing documents can have negative consequences.
cholerae O1, 2 other members of that family (EPEC and EAEC
) occurred in the expected proportion in samples from patients with mixed V.
Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC
) is an emerging category of diarrheagenic E.
China's leaders, however, have not publicly endorsed the EAEC
during Mahathir's visit, or his appeal for support for a Japanese plan to establish an Asian Monetary Fund to bail out local economies ravaged by the economic crisis.
coli as typical EPEC and EAEC
(1,3), respectively, the classification of such strains within the DEC pathotypes is difficult.
But the idea was shelved mainly because Japan was reluctant to join due to fears of antagonizing the United States, which opposed the EAEC
The best characterized diarrheogenic Escherichia coli (DE) groups include enterotoxigenic (ETEC), enteropathogenic (EPEC), enteroinvasive (EIEC), enteroaggregative (EAEC
), and Shiga toxin-producing (STEC) E.
