However, children and youth under the age of 20 have been reported to experience a later average onset at eight days Reference 7. The duration of TD generally averaged between three to four days among adult travellers Reference 5, Reference 6, although average duration of incapacitation i.
Longer durations of TD were observed in children, particularly those two years of age and younger Reference 7.Elberlok, olesyaodnodvortseva mail. Miss of Carnal Activity.
Etiological agents TD is mainly acquired through the ingestion of food and beverages contaminated with pathogens that cause diarrhea.
The most common etiologic agents for TD are bacterial, viral and parasitic.
Noroviruses were also implicated in many gastrointestinal outbreaks on cruise ships Reference 11.
Cyclospora cayetanensis has also caused diarrhea in travellers returning from Latin America, the Indian sub-continent and Southeast Asia Reference 12.
Although parasitic pathogens are responsible for a smaller proportion of TD cases globally, diarrhea due to parasites tends to be more protracted and, consequently, requires health care intervention more frequently upon return from travel.
Among travellers who visited a GeoSentinel travel clinic Reference ii to seek post-travel medical care, parasitic pathogens represents the most frequently identified cause of acute diarrhea Reference 13.
Diarrhea due to Giardia and other gastrointestinal parasites were also reported more frequently in long-term travellers seeking post-travel medical care than short-term travellers Reference 14.
However, there is evidence to suggest that bacterial pathogens are responsible for many of these pathogen-negative TD cases as there are many documented cases of symptoms being reduced through use of antibacterials. A study of travellers visiting four high-risk countries conducted in the late 1970 s and again in the late 1990 s found that TD rates remained similar over this 20 year time period Reference 6, Reference 17.
However, a subsequent study in one of these four countries has shown a decline in rates of TD since the late 1990 s which is thought to be due to efforts for improved hygiene in tourist facilities Reference 18. Note that the studies conducted through C-EnterNet only target reportable illnesses such as campylobacter enteritis, salmonellosis and giardiasis and therefore do not include other more notable travel-related etiologies for diarrhea such as enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli.
Hence, the findings above only represent a fraction of all travel-related cases of diarrhea in Canada. Methods This statement was developed by a working group comprised of volunteers from the CATMAT committee, none of whom declared a relevant conflict of interest.
The working group, with support from the secretariat, was responsible for: literature retrieval, synthesis and analysis; and the development of key questions and draft recommendations.
