Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Beginning in early May 2011, northern Germany was the principal site of a massive epidemic of bloody diarrhea and the hemolytic-uremic syndrome caused by Shiga-toxin-producing Escherichia coli. By the time the outbreak ended in early July, there were reports of more than 4000 illnesses, 800 cases of the hemolytic-uremic syndrome, and 50 deaths in Germany and in 15 other countries. As a result of remarkable efforts by public health officials, clinicians, and microbiologists who raced to control the outbreak and to treat its victims, much was learned. As reported in this issue of the Journal by Frank et al. . . .
