This suggests that the outbreaks seen in other regions represent a small proportion of the total cases, with many cases remaining unrecognised. Nevertheless, the lack of outbreaks in Alberta is difficult to explain (Waters et al. 1994). 1. Here, the higher incidence in children cannot be 36 How common is VTEC infection? attributed to the selective screening of children’s stools. However, it is still likely that younger children with milder diarrhoea submitted stool specimens whilst older children and adults did not.

The strains to be tested are usually grown in Trypticase soya broth or in Penassay medium, and culture filtrates are added to monolayers of vero cells. Cells become rounded and detached in the presence of VT. Final readings are usually made after incubation for 3 to 4 days when the cells are fixed and stained. Either individual colonies or broth inoculated with sweeps can be examined. Confirmation that the observed cytotoxic effect is actually caused by VT can be made by neutralisation tests using antisera against VT1 and VT2.

The calculated value of the test statistic is then compared to known distributions (tables of values) which would be expected when the null hypothesis is true to obtain the p value. g. 05). If the calculated p value is less than the cut-off value, the null hypothesis is rejected. 05. 05 is considered statistically significant, and above is considered not significant. 05 as significant. Therefore, actual p values should be quoted rather than merely stating significant or not significant. Could the association be due to confounding?
