Surprising results from major Asian study
Diarrhoea remains one of the leading causes of death among children in developing countries. A major study in six countries has found that one microorganism that causes diarrhoea, Shigella, appears to be more common in the poorest communities of Asia than previously thought. Antibiotic-resistant strains were also found to have emerged. Based on their findings, the Korea-based researchers, writing in PLoS Medicine, call for more efforts to reduce the number of cases.
