Abstract Virulence markers in Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) and their association with diseases remain largely unknown. This study determines the importance of 44 genetic markers for STEC (O157 and non-O157) from human clinical cases and their correlation to disease outcome. STEC isolated from a cattle surveillance program were also included. The virulence genes tested were present in almost all O157:H7 isolates but highly variable in non-O157 STEC isolates. Patient age was a significant determinant of clinical outcome. Copyright © 2015, American Society for Microbiology. All Rights Reserved.
