Development of a risk assessment model for the different pathways of infection of VTEC 0157
Project Code: B01019
Microbiological Risk Assessment (MRA) is an emerging methodology to predict the risk of microbial infection in humans (and animals) through various routes of exposure including food, water and the environment. Several high profile outbreaks of verocytotoxigenic <em>E. coli</em>O157 (VTEC O157) associated with contaminated food were reported in the 1990’s. However, VTEC O157 infection is not just a food issue. Other established routes of transmission include drinking water, contact with farm animals, recreational water sport activity and person to person contact. The main objective of this research project is to develop an MRA to model the risks of VTEC O157 infection through the main routes of transmission.
