Abstract: We examined the rate of fecal carriage of vanB in the absence of cultivable vancomycin-resistant enterococci in three distinct populations (children, community adults, and hemodialysis patients). Nonenterococcal vanB carriage was similarly high in hemodialysis patients (45%) and community adults (63%; P = 0.066) and significantly more common among community adults than children (27%; P = 0.001).
