The Human Intestinal Organoid as a Model System for Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli Pathogenesis:
Experimental models used to study Escherichia coli are limited to animal models, immortalized in vitro tissue culture, and human intestinal explants. Here, we examined whether human intestinal organoids (HIOs) could be used to study the development of colonization and pathogenesis of E. coli.
