Abstract

Vibrios are an important cause of human food-borne illness associated with the consumption of seafood worldwide, and contaminated food and drinking water in developing countries. Clinical syndromes induced by vibrios such as Vibrio cholerae, V. parahaemolyticus, V. vulnificus, and others range from mild, self-limiting gastroenteritis to life-threatening primary septicemia. As natural inhabitants of the aquatic environment, these bacteria pose a continual threat to food safety.
