One handred and eighty E. coli isolates obtained from diarrhoeic camel calves,
were randomly selected from a total of 211 isolates. They were examined for the
presence of specific fimbrial antigens using the FIMBRIX kits [CVL, Weybridge, UK).
However, twenty isolates (11.11%) only were found to possess one of the most common
fimbrial antigens, (F4(4.44%), F5(6.11%) and F6 (0.56%)), one isolate was found to
possess both F5 and F6.
