10 Possible Causes for Meningococcal Carrier, Non-Motile Bacteria

  • Meningococcemia

    A meningococcal carrier study was performed on samples obtained from pharyngeal swabs which turned out to be negative.[elsevier.es] Many people in a population can be a carrier of meningococcal bacteria (up to 11 percent) in the nose and back of the throat, and usually nothing happens to a person other[oregonlive.com] […] from carriers 4.[slideshare.net]

  • Meningococcal Carrier

    Abstract A survey of the meningococcal carrier rate was conducted in the Nsukka area (eastern Nigeria) during an interepidemic period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Abstract An epidemiological study was carried out to determine meningococcal carrier state amongst recruits of a military training centre. 360 recruits with divergent socioeconomic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Following a community-based intervention programme for an outbreak of meningococcal disease, we collected meningococcal carrier isolates from the intervention area and control[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Meningococcal Meningitis

    A suspected case of meningococcal meningitis was diagnosed in a 24-year-old sailor onboard an aircraft carrier at sea in 2003.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] of incidence, carriage and case-carrier ratios for meningococcal meningitis in the African meningitis belt and describe their variations across the endemic, hyperendemic[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Scatterplot of meningococcal serogroup A monthly incidence rates and carriage prevalence across case carrier observation units.[journals.plos.org]

  • Meningococcal Arthritis

  • Pneumococcal Meningitis

    About 1 in 10 people carry meningococcal bacteria in their nose or throat but don’t get sick from it; these carriers can still transmit the bacteria without knowing it. ([everydayhealth.com]

  • Gonococcemia

    Abstract The gonococcal carrier state is similar to the meningococcal carrier state, usually producing no systemic symptoms but occasionally complicated by bacteremia and[annals.org]

  • Cat Scratch Meningoencephalitis

    It can be spread by droplets coughed or sneezed out by an infected person or by a carrier; many outbreaks of meningococcal infection occur in people living in close quarters[drreddy.com]

  • Gram-Negative Septicaemia

    Discussion Members of the genus Staphylococcus are gram-positive cocci that are arranged in groups, or clusters, are non-motile and do not produce spores.[scielo.br] The most likely source of infection of virulent strains appears to be household members or close friends who are asymptomatic carriers.[patient.info] Staphylococci have a cell wall that is typical of all gram-positive bacteria and a G C content range of 30-40mol% (4).[scielo.br]

  • Neisseria Meningitidis

    Neisseria Meningitidis is non motile and is transferred among people via direct contact with bodily fluids in which the bacteria has inhabited.[bioweb.uwlax.edu] Meningococcal carriers identified in these surveys and all available people in their households were recruited into this longitudinal cohort study.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Efficacy of rifampin in treatment of meningococcal carriers.
