About the book

Escherichia coli (E. coli) comprises a highly diverse group of Gram-negative bacteria and is a common member of the intestinal microflora of humans and animals. Urinary tract infections (UTI) are considered as one of the main causes of morbidity, worldwide and uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC), is the etiological agent associated with these infections. The long-term use of antibiotics induces an increase of antimicrobial resistance and adverse drug reactions.

The Shiga toxin-producing (E.coli 0157-H7) was first isolated in 1982. It has become an important food and waterborne pathogen, that causes hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS) in humans. Is mainly transmitted by oral route after consumption of contaminated, undercooked foods or liquids, and also from person to person, through fecal shedding, accounting until 11% of the total infections.

The authors will describe all the clinical problems related to E coli infections and the best way to solve and prevent in every situation

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Rozmari Marijan

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
