Cifor: Outbreaks of Undetermined Etiology (OUE) Guidelines


Outbreaks of Undetermined Etiology (OUE) Guidelines

The CIFOR Outbreaks of Undetermined Etiology (OUE) Guidelines include recommendations on "universal" collection, shipment, testing and retention of foodborne outbreak specimens, even in the early stages of an investigation. Based on syndromes and specific outbreak profiles, the guidelines are designed to provide adequate specimens for second-tier testing and pathogen discovery should an etiology prove elusive. 

The OUE Guidelines cover both infectious and non-infectious agents. A companion OUE Agent List provides detailed information on each agent including incubation period, primary signs and symptoms, primary specimen(s) and key epidemiological information. 
In collaboration with the CIFOR OUE Guidelines Work Group, the Oregon Department of Health developed an application-based, interactive version of the OUE Guidelines.  
Who should use it: The OUE Guidelines are primarily intended for state health departments making recommendations on specimen collection and conducting testing for foodborne outbreaks.
The guidelines may also be appropriate for some local health departments.
