From the Greek cholē for bile. Although the term cholera is now used only to refer to disease caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholerae, until the late 19th century any diarrheal illness might be referred to as many centuries, medicine in Europe was based on Galen’s theory of the 4 humors in the body: blood, bile, black bile, and phlegm.

outbreaks of diseases such as salmonellosis, cholera, enterohaemorrhagic Escherichia coli (EHEC) infections, and hepatitis A in both developed and developing countries. Furthermore, cholera and other diarrheal diseases, particularly infant diarrhea, traditionally considered to be spread by water or through person-to-person contact, were shown to be. Cholera should be suspected in a patient with severe watery diarrhea, vomiting, and dehydration. The illness is often accompanied by marked leg cramps, caused by electrolyte disturbances. However, the spectrum of V. cholerae O1 infection ranges from asymptomatic infection (75% of infections) through mild diarrhea to the most severe and.

Introduction. Cholera, caused by infection with toxigenic Vibrio cholerae bacteria of serogroup O1 (>99% of global cases) or O, is characterized by watery diarrhea that can be severe and rapidly fatal without prompt rehydration. Cholera is endemic in approximately 60 countries and causes epidemics as well. Globally, cholera results in an estimated million cases of disease {{scription}} INTRODUCTION — Cholera is an acute secretory diarrheal illness caused by toxin-producing strains of the gram-negative bacterium Vibrio cholera is characterized by profound fluid and electrolyte losses in the stool and the rapid development of hypovolemic shock, often within 24 hours from the initial onset of vomiting and diarrhea.

The V. cholerae O strains were clinical isolates cultured from the stools of cholera patients treated at the hospital of the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (ICDDR,B), located in Dhaka, by standard methods. The strains were stored at −70°C in T1N1 broth (Trypticase, 1%; NaCl, 1% [pH ]) with 20% glycerol.

It often lasts for a few days and can result in dehydration due to fluid loss. Signs of dehydration often begin with loss of the normal stretchiness of the skin and irritable behaviour.

This can progress to decreased urination, loss of skin color, a fast heart rate.In De, using the RIL, was the first to discover cholera enterotoxin and to publish a book “Cholera, its Pathology and Pathogenesis RIL developed by De was used in several laboratories for the study of enteropathogenic serotypes of E.
