Mycoplasma Fermentans


Presentation

  • Histological evidence of chorioamnionitis was present in two of the four patients, a finding suggesting that M. fermentans may be a cause of chorioamnionitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Recurrent Infection
  • Mycoplasma particles remaining alive in host cells may cause recurrent infection, and liberated M161Ag may serve as a biological response modifier affecting both innate and acquired immunity.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Hodgkin Lymphoma
  • Abstract We examined the relationship between the haematogenous dissemination of Mycoplasma fermentans and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma (NHL) in 265 HIV-1 positive patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Respiratory Distress
  • The clinical courses were characterized by rapid progression and development of adult respiratory distress syndrome with or without systemic disease.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Mycoplasma pneumoniae was used as a positive control, this bacterium is one of the main causes of atypical pneumonia, it has been associated to pharyngitis, bronchitis, asthma, bronchiolitis, acute respiratory distress syndrome, acute chest syndrome,[doi.org]

Workup

  • The clinical characteristics and results of microbiological workup of this and 2 other cases are summarized in the Table . Table.[jamanetwork.com]

Treatment

  • […] the concentrations and treatment times required were toxic to the cells.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Treatment of mycoplasma fermentans requires a directive approach as the bacteria lack a cell wall. As such, treatments incorporating natural remedies are often more effective than typical antibiotic options.[infiniteshift.wordpress.com]

Prognosis

  • Clinical observations, with special reference to factors influencing prognosis, Rev. Infect.[books.google.es]

Etiology

  • An unusual but typical clinicopathological presentation was noted among several groups of previously healthy, human immunodeficiency virus-negative patients who had an apparent fulminant infectious disease but had no etiologic agent identified.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • ., An assay for circulating antibodies to a major etiologic virus of human non-A, non-B hepatitis, Science, 244, 362, 1989. ‎[books.google.es]
  • One application of multiplex PCR is to increase the ability of clinicians to determine the causative agent in diseases with an unknown etiology such as CFS, FMS, RA, and GWS.[thearthritiscenter.com]
  • On immunologic, virological, endocrinologic, and neurological testing, a variety of modest objective abnormalities have been reported; however, no satisfactory diagnostic test has been developed, and no etiologic agent has been identified.[forums.phoenixrising.me]

Epidemiology

  • PMS has proved useful in distinguishing isolates of M. fermentans, providing epidemiological data.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • What is needed in the study of M. fermentans is an understanding of the true epidemiology of the organism.[reliasmedia.com]

Pathophysiology

  • P48 is a Mycoplasma-derived immunomodulatory molecule which has differentiation and apoptosis-inducing activities and may be important in the pathophysiology of Mycoplasma infections.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Natural treatment options include chelation and destruction of the bacteria to prevent and reverse progression of the condition. What is Mycoplasma Fermentans? Mycoplasma fermentans is considered the most common Lyme co-infection.[infiniteshift.wordpress.com]
  • Official focus has, however, remained on the need to maintain public confidence in MMR in order to prevent communicable diseases, rather than on a thorough investigation of parental testimony.[swiftjournals.org]
  • VACCINES No vaccines are available for the prevention of mycoplasma infections. COMMENTS A major problem concerning genital mycoplasmas is to determine whether they are responsible of the infection.[antimicrobe.org]
  • Anti-cancer drugs, also known as camptothecins (CPTs), work to decrease Topoisomerase I activity in cancerous cells because it is involved in DNA replication and transcription by preventing DNA supercoiling (21).[microbewiki.kenyon.edu]
  • The invention provides as such a vaccine aimed to prevent AIDS due to cytopathic mycoplasma.[patents.google.com]
