Escherichia coli O157:H7 genotypes in the bovine reservoir may differ in virulence. The proportion of clinical genotypes among cattle isolates was weakly (P = 0.054) related to the international incidence of E. coli O157:H7-associated hemolytic-uremic syndrome, varied among clinical isolates internationally, and also differed along the putative cattle-hamburger-clinical case transmission chain.
