  1. Effect of fecal contamination on diarrheal illness rates in day-care centers.

    Article - En anglais

    Contact spread of enteropathogens in day-care centers is supported by the recovery (presence vs. absence) of fecal coliforms from hands and day-care center fomites.

    This prospective study was conducted to determine what, if any, quantitative measures of fecal coliforms predict the risk of diarrhea among day-care center attendees.

    Diarrheal illness without concomitant respiratory symptoms was monitored among 221 children aged <3 years in 37 classrooms (24 day-care centers) through biweekly parental telephone interviews from October 1988 to May 1989 in Cumberland County, North Carolina.

    The risk of diarrhea was expressed as new episodes/classroom-fortnight.
