Blood Type Affects Severity of Diarrhea Caused by E. coli

Washington University in St. Louis

A new study shows that a kind of E. coli most associated with “travelers’ diarrhea” and children in underdeveloped areas of the world causes more severe disease in people with blood type A.

A vaccine targeting that protein could potentially protect people with type A blood against the deadliest effects of E. coli infection.
