Abstract

Enteroaggregative E. coli (EAEC) is a global cause of gastrointestinal infection yet little is known about the virulence or antimicrobial resistance (AMR) of EAEC in regions of the world where diarrhoeal disease is most common. In Bangladesh diarrhoeal disease is one of the leading causes of mortality and extensive case control studies have linked specific EAEC clonal complexes with pathogenic potential.
