230 Strains of E coli from infantile and children diarrhea were serotyped and examined for entrotoxigenicity. 017, 020 and 02 were most common serotypes in infantile diarrhoea and 02 and 017 in children diarrhoea. 100 strains were found to be enterotoxigenic. ST producing strains were more (66%) than LT producing (17%) or LT+ST producing (17%) strains. 95 enterotoxigenic strains were multi-drug resistant and 34 showed transfer of R plasmids to standard receplen-stranis. 18 strains showed simultaneous transfer of Ent + plasmid also. Importance of proper surveillance of E. coli or Ent + and R factors in relation to control of infantile and childhood diarrhoea is discussed.
