Campylobacter


Presentation

  • We present a case of an RTR with C. jejuni bacteremia presenting as self-limiting diarrhea followed by fever and cellulitis. The patient was successfully treated with a 2-week course of imipenem and developed no other complications.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Moreover, the results of some studies suggest that infection with C. concisus is a factor predisposing to the development of gastroesophageal reflux disease and Barrett's esophagus, conditions which may be present before the development of cancer.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Type IV and VI secretion systems genes, genes known to be important for pathogenicity in the Campylobacter genus, were present in the genomes assemblies, with 82% containing Type VI secretion system genes.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In Figure 2, I present sequence information for two conserved indels that are uniquely present in various sequenced ε-proteobacterial homologs, but which are not found in the corresponding proteins from any other organism.[doi.org]
  • Presents findings on the extent of campylobacter in the food supply, transmission of antibiotic resistant campylobacters from food animals to humans, and control of campylobacter at the food source.[books.google.com]
Chronic Infection
  • These features are consistent with the unique niche of H. pylori in the stomach, and its pathophysiology and propensity for chronic infection.[doi.org]
Thrombosis
  • To our knowledge, this is the first documented case of septic cavernous sinus thrombosis caused by C. rectus.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Flushing
  • The goal of this research was to estimate the health risks associated with the exposure to Campylobacter when harvesting urban stormwater for toilet flushing and irrigation activities, and the role treatment options play in limiting risks.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Ptosis
  • We report a case of cavernous sinus thrombosis in a 55-year-old Chinese man who presented with headache, ophthalmoplegia and ptosis. Campylobacter rectus was eventually isolated from the blood cultures.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Urinary Retention
  • A case of bacteremia caused by a rare Helicobacter species, Campylobacter-like organism 3 (CLO-3), in a 75-year-old man with prostate cancer and an indwelling urethral catheter for urinary retention, is reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

Trypanosoma Cruzi
  • Several genes were found which have homologues only in the eukaryotic domain; these include the dUTPase ( dut) gene (Cj1451), which is similar to those of Leishmania major and Trypanosoma cruzi only; there is no orthologue of the E. coli dut gene.[doi.org]

Treatment

  • […] coagulation, filtration, UV, and chlorination treatment plant.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • As can be seen in figure 2, the effects of treatment show some variability, which indicates heterogeneity between studies. One such factor that differed between studies was the time interval from first symptoms to treatment.[doi.org]
  • These infections usually require treatment with intravenous antimicrobial agents ( 3 ).[doi.org]
  • Antibiotic treatment shortened the duration of intestinal symptoms by 1.32 days (95% confidence interval, 0.64-1.99; P .0001).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • We shouldn t forget this fact for the proper treatment approach and specifically in refractory cases.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • […] drug effects Campylobacter upsaliensis/isolation & purification* DNA, Bacterial/chemistry DNA, Bacterial/genetics DNA, Ribosomal/chemistry DNA, Ribosomal/genetics Diarrhea/microbiology* Diarrhea/pathology* Feces/microbiology Gastrointestinal Hemorrhage/etiology[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • There are reports that C. concisus was the only pathogen isolated from the stool of patients with acute diarrhea, which could indicate that it is an etiologic factor of acute gastrointestinal infections in humans.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Etiology of diarrhea in Bangladeshi infants in the first year of life analyzed using molecular methods. J Infect Dis. 2013; 208 :1794–1802. [ PMC free article ] [ PubMed ] 5. Rao MR, Naficy AB, Savarino SJ, et al.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • This periodontopathogenic genus with high percentage may also play an important role in the etiology of OLP.[nature.com]

Epidemiology

  • Although these organisms have already emerged as causative agents of zoonoses, several aspects of their epidemiology and pathophysiology are only beginning to emerge.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • However, the emergence of resistant isolates strengthens the importance of antimicrobial susceptibility testing and the critical need for epidemiologic surveillance.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The aim of this study was to determine the genetic and epidemiological degree of clustering among Campylobacter jejuni isolates from Danish patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • These results suggest that accurate identification, to the species level, is important to determine effective treatment of BSI caused by Campylobacter spp. and can help us to understand the epidemiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Due to this difficulty, the rate of infections in epidemiological data are underestimated.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • […] vaccines; (v) understanding transmission routes to broiler flocks; (vi) knowledge of bacteriocins, bacteriophages and antimicrobial peptides as preventive therapies; (vii) ration formulation as an effective preventive measure at a farm level; (viii) development[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
