MGH Hotline 12.10.10 Following a 100-year absence on the island of Hispaniola, cholera – a potentially deadly bacterial disease that causes severe diarrhea and dehydration – not only has reemerged, but it also has reached epidemic proportions in Haiti.
A team of researchers has determined that the strain of cholera erupting in Haiti matches bacterial samples from South Asia and not those from Latin America. The scientists conclude that the bacteria introduced into Haiti most likely came from an infected human, contaminated food or other item from outside of Latin America.
Results of the study from a collaborative team led by researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital and the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh suggest that parasitic infection could reduce the immune response to cholera, which may compromise the effectiveness of cholera vaccines.
