The ability to serologically identify some 140 different O groups has greatly facilitated the study of host-parasite interaction with infections due to E. coli. We studied 277 patients with infections of the urinary tract, blood, or other extra-intestinal sites. Our experience reveals that O groups 1, 4, 6, 25, 50, and 75 account for 60 to 70 per cent of the groupable strains among extra-intestinal specimens from diseased patients. Feces was the reservoir among 80% of patients with urinary tract infection: 66% of fecal specimens from diseased patients contained at least one of the common serogroups in contrast wih only
