    The bacterium, Vibrio parahaemolticus was isolated from 776 patients at Hat Yai Hospital in Southern Thailand from 2006 to 2010. 51.3-73.6% of the isolates were tdh+ trh- and Group-specific PCR positive pandemic strains. A comparison of the number of V. parahaemolyticus isolates in this study...

    Emergence and spread of pandemic strains of Vibrio parahaemolyticus have drawn attention to make detailed study on their genomes. The pathogenicity of V. parahaemolyticus has been associated with thermostable-direct hemolysin (TDH) and/or TDHrelated hemolysin (TRH).The present study evaluated...

    Background: Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a common cause of foodborne disease. Beginning in 1996, a more virulent strain having serotype O3:K6 caused major outbreaks in India and other parts of the world, resulting in the emergence of a pandemic. Other serovariants of this strain emerged during its...

    Disease outbreaks caused by Vibrio parahaemolyticus in Puerto Montt, Chile, began in 2004 and reached a peak in 2005 at 3,600 clinical cases. Until 2006, every analyzed case was caused by the serovar O3:K6 pandemic strain. In the summer of 2007, only 475 cases were reported; 73% corresponded to...
