In German media was published information about the most likely source of recent intestinal infection E. Coli- it was sprouts sprouts of soy and other vegetables from the farm, located in the city Uelzen, in Lower Saxony (Germany), is about 100 kilometers south of Hamburg.

Gert Lindemann (Minister of Agriculture of Lower Saxony), said that the source of the spread of intestinal infections E. Coli found in sprouts of soy, beans, peas, radishes and a number of vegetables. Two employees of the farm revealed the presence of intestinal infection E. Coli. While scientists explore the infectious agents, the Hamburg police engaged in tracing the distributors contaminated vegetables, have identified two wholesale distributor of contaminated vegetables, and a restaUrant, that could start an epidemic - a restaUrant located in Luebeck, among whose clients revealed 17 patients.

The list of victims of the intestinal infection E. Coli are already 22 people, all identified cases of intestinal infections E. Coli - are already 2,263 people. The vast majority of cases recorded in Germany - 21 dead and 2,136 infected, followed by Sweden - one dead and 46 infected, in Denmark -18 infected.

It should be noted, that E.coli studied better, than other microorganisms. Its short-term reproduction and ease of cultivation of previously granted the ability to quickly amass a large amount of material. Well studied and its genetics and molecular biology. E.coli - is a gram-negative bacteria. Escherichia coli in large quantities is part of the normal microflora of the intestines. E.coli synthesizes vitamin K and provides protection against other bacteria. When Escherichia coli penetrates the intestinal mucosa in those tissues and organs that normally are sterile (eg, the peritoneal cavity in violation of the integrity of the intestinal wall into the bladder or blood), it causes the disease, sometimes severe.

Therefore, in the world press in recent a few days began to appear describing of similar cases, that occurred earlier in other countries. So in the Korean press recalled, that in 2006 29-year-old woman was admitted to hospital after abdominal pain and internal bleeding. In the hospital she had identified the presence of E. coli, but the symptoms were more severe than usual symptoms of a typical infection of Escherichia coli. This woman was cured after four weeks of treatment. One of the doctors in 2006 published an article in a scientific journal, which has been described previously unprecedented stability of the identified strain of Escherichia coli to antibiotics.

In recent days, the dynamics of the spread of intestinal infections E. Coli had changed: the growing number of cases has slowed, but advice did not eat a raw vegetables remain in force in several European countries.

More from last week Russia has banned the import of vegetable products from EU countries, thereby causing extreme discontent with the EU authorities. The reason for the ban on the import of vegetables from the EU-spread in Europe, primarily in Germany- an acute intestinal infection caused by the E. Coli. Russian authorities is not satisfied with the response from the EU to inquiries about the safety of European vegetables. According to doctor Gennady Onishchenko, the German authorities and the authorities of the European Union does not demonstrate a willingness to clarify of situation. The only positive point in this situation- is the attitude of the authorities of Denmark, which is directly applied to explain the situation in this country that is a good example of finding the optimal solutions.

Gennady Onishchenko said, the ban on the import to Russia of fresh vegetables from the European Union may be withdrawn, when the European Union authorities answer on a few questions, which include the establishment of the pathogen and the reasons, that caused the disease, the establishment of transfer factor, which is carried out by transmission of the disease, establishment of place of origin of contaminated products and confirmed that the situation is under control and, more importantly- stop the increasing number of patients.
