AbstractThe effectiveness of a latex agglutination assay kit for the detection of Escherichia coli heat-labile toxin and cholera toxin was determined for the identification of natural isolates of the corresponding enteric pathogens in Southeast Asia. By selection of the appropriate culture media, the sensitivity of the assay was improved from 90.6% (for the detection of heat- labile toxin) and 75% (for the detection of cholera toxin) to 100%, and the results were confirmed with bioassays and DNA hybridization assays for both clinical and environmental isolates.
