The health ministry has since joined the European Legionnaires' Disease Surveillance Network (ELDSNet), the EWGLI's latest incarnation.
According to the EWGLI official website it would like to bring the eight countries, including Cyprus, into EWGLI.
In 2002, EWGLI introduced a new set of procedures outlining a standard approach to control and prevention of travel associated Legionnaires' disease across all European countries.
Objectives include developing and maintaining EWGLINET, enhancing the capability within the EU to detect common source outbreaks early, enabling member states to implement timely preventive action, informing all those that need to know about travel associated Legionnaires' disease to promote primary preventive action and collaborative investigations, and providing a dedicated website for enhancing EWGLI's information resource.
Other EWGLI member countries which are not signatories of the European Guidelines include Croatia, FYR of Macedonia, Russia, Israel, Romania and Switzerland.
Allelic profiles for the 7 sequenced genes were obtained from EWGLI and were aligned and compared with sequences derived in this study.
Complete allelic profiles, according to the EWGLI typing scheme, were obtained for 9 clinical samples in the study.
Additionally, this profile was reportedly found in an environmental strain detected in Mexico during an epidemiologic investigation of travel-associated legionellosis (EWGLI sequence-based typing database, www.ewgli.org).
Sex date Sample type 0203 M 13 Isolate and sputum 0205 F 13 Sputum 0260 F 17 Sputum 0263 F 17 Isolate and sputum 0293 M 18 Sputum 0295 M 18 Isolate and sputum 0300 M 18 Sputum 0351 F 20 Sputum 0353 M 20 Sputum 0372 M 20 Sputum 1107 F 30 Isolate and sputum EWGLI sequence-based Patient no.
SBT using loci flaA, pilE, asd, mip, mompS, proA, and neuA was conducted according to the EWGLI scheme (8,9).
In comparison to the EWGLI dataset, 42 STs have only been reported in North America, and 41 STs are unique to the province of Ontario.
Because the population of Lp1 clinical isolates found in Ontario appeared to be distinct from the isolates reported in the EWGLI database, we performed linkage analyses and looked at genetic diversity of our dataset compared to that of the EWGLI dataset.
