Abstract
Atypical enteropathogenetic Escherichia coli (EPEC) strains are frequently detected in children with diarrhea but are also a common finding in healthy children. The aim of this study was to compare the phylogenetic ancestry and virulence characteristics of atypical (eae positive, stx and bfpA negative) EPEC strains from Norwegian children with (n = 37) or without (n = 19) diarrhea and to search for an association between phylogenetic ancestry and diarrhea. The strains were classified in phylogenetic groups by phylogenetic marker genes and in sequence types (STs) by multilocus sequence typing. Phylogenetic ancestry was compared to virulence characteristics based on DNA microarray analysis. Serotyping and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) were also performed. All four phylogenetic groups, 26 different STs, and 20 different clonal groups were represented among the 56 atypical EPEC strains. The strains were separated into three clusters by overall virulence gene profile; one large cluster with A, B1, and D strains and two clusters with group B2 strains. There was considerable heterogeneity in the PFGE profiles and serotypes, and almost half of the strains were O nontypeable. The efa1/lifA gene, previously shown to be statistically linked with diarrhea in this strain collection (J. E. Afset et al., J. Clin. Microbiol. 44:3703-3711, 2006), was present in 8 of 26 STs. The two phylogenetic groups B1 and D were weakly associated with diarrhea (P = 0.06 and P = 0.09, respectively). In contrast, group B2 was isolated most frequently from healthy controls (P = 0.05). In conclusion, the atypical EPEC strains were heterogeneous both phylogenetically and by virulence profile. Phylogenetic ancestry was less useful as a predictor of diarrhea than were specific virulence genes.

Abstract
The original Norwegian Multicenter Study on Timolol after Myocardial Infarction was a double-blind, randomized study comparing the effect of timolol with that of placebo for up to 33 months after acute myocardial infarction. The initial results showed that the cumulated mortality rate was 39.4 per cent lower among 945 patients randomly assigned to timolol treatment than among 939 patients randomly assigned to placebo (P = 0.0003). After the end of the double-blind period the majority of participating patients in the timolol group continued to receive beta-adrenergic blockade, whereas the majority of placebo-treated patients continued without such blockade. During an extended follow-up of participating patients up to 72 months after randomization, the mortality curves of the two groups continued to rise in parallel. Cumulated mortality rates were 32.3 per cent in the placebo group and 26.4 per cent in the timolol group (P = 0.0028). We conclude that the previously observed early beneficial effect of beta-adrenergic blocking therapy is maintained for at least six years after infarction.
