Streptococcus Salivarius


Presentation

  • Clinicians should suspect S. salivarius meningitis in patients presenting acutely after medical or surgical procedures involving the meninges.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The patient presented to us hemodynamically compromised.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 55-y-old woman with no previous medical history presented with a 3-day history of progressive headache, nausea, emesis, right-sided facial numbness, and right-sided extremity weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Presenting symptoms and signs in 10 episodes of infection were ascites (in 8 episodes), elevated temperature (6), abdominal pain (5), and encephalopathy (4).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • A 48-y-old woman, with a previous history of neurosurgical intervention for a trigeminal neurinoma, presented with acute meningitis due to Streptococcus salivarius.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Asymptomatic
  • A gastrointestinal diagnostic workup revealed an asymptomatic colonic adenocarcinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Dyspnea
  • We report the case of a 40-year-old patient presenting with a 6-month history of dyspnea and edema, with significant worsening of his clinical manifestations for the 2 weeks before admission to our department.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Facial Numbness
  • A 55-y-old woman with no previous medical history presented with a 3-day history of progressive headache, nausea, emesis, right-sided facial numbness, and right-sided extremity weakness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Responsiveness Decreasing
  • A small fraction (10%) of the urease was rapidly inactivated, after which both the remaining urease and pH response decreased at a similar rate to cell viability (t 1/2 of 15-20 min), but for at least 1 h following acidification, a rapid ureolysis induced[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Dizziness
  • The patient initially responded well clinically, but was readmitted 4 weeks after discontinuation of treatment, with headache and dizziness. A new cerebral MRI showed progression of the abscess.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Workup

  • A gastrointestinal diagnostic workup revealed an asymptomatic colonic adenocarcinoma.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Given its association with non‐colon malignancy, in the appropriate clinical setting, a workup to rule‐out malignancy is warranted. To cite this abstract: Felix L, Gurunathan R.[shmabstracts.com]
Pericardial Effusion
  • The use of CPAP made the patient's symptoms worse as a result of an increase of the intrathoracic pressure, which was a pathophysiological mechanism, added to the interference of the localized pericardial effusion and the effect of the pericardial constriction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Haemophilus Parainfluenzae
  • Other indicator strains such as Actinomyces naeslundii TG2, Corynebacterium spp GH17, Enterococcus faecium C1, Haemophilus parainfluenza TONEJ11, Lactobacillus bulgaricus M8, Staphylococcus aureus RF122, Streptococcus gordonii ST2, Streptococcus mutans[doi.org]

Treatment

  • He received an additional 8 weeks of broad spectrum antibiotic treatment, followed by 12 weeks of oral treatment with pivampicillin. His symptoms resolved and a cerebral MRI at discontinuation of treatment showed regression of the abscess to 7.5 mm.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • In this paper, we discuss why contemporary probiotics are inadequate for treatment of oral malodour and examine the rationale for selection of particular bacterial species for future use in the treatment of this condition.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The absence of any significant adverse events supported the safety of the probiotic treatment.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Heat treatment, sensitivity to sugars, amino acids, and EDTA, as well as protease treatment were also used to further characterize coaggregation between S. salivarius and periodontopathogens.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The product was well tolerated by the subjects with no treatment-related side effects or drop-outs reported.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Etiology

  • […] important role in the cause of tooth decay, the cariogenic microorganisms such as Streptococcus mutans, Streptococcus sanguis, Streptococcus salivarius , Streptococcus mitis, Streptococcus oralis and Lactobacillus acidophilus play a vital role in the etiology[medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com]
  • As noted by Pichichero (6), sore throat is one of the most commom problems in children and Group A Streptococcus infections account for nearly all sore throats of bacterial etiology.[scielo.br]
  • The etiology is poorly understood. No genetic defects have yet been identified and the incidence of the syndrome has not been accurately established [ 1 ].[omicsonline.org]
  • TREATMENT OF CHRONIC INFECTIONS OF THE RESPIRATORY TRACT ***** DESCRIPTION The present invention provides a new microbial strain of- the species Streptococcus salivarius for -use in the treatment of inflammatory processes with or without infectious etiology[google.de]

Epidemiology

  • […] pathogenic; Viridans streptococci species cause most dental caries and are the most frequent cause of subacute native valve bacterial endocarditis, typically associated with dental procedures; S. salivarius may cause septicemia in neutropenic patients EPIDEMIOLOGY[msdsonline.com]

Pathophysiology

  • The use of CPAP made the patient's symptoms worse as a result of an increase of the intrathoracic pressure, which was a pathophysiological mechanism, added to the interference of the localized pericardial effusion and the effect of the pericardial constriction[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Prevention

  • Our results suggest that K12 may have potential as a preventative therapy to control GBS vaginal colonization and thereby prevent its transmission to the neonate during pregnancy. Copyright 2015, American Society for Microbiology.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The objective of this is to prevent re-establishment of non-desirable bacterial populations and thus help limit the re-occurrence of oral malodour over a prolonged period.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Evidence of oral probiotic use for ear and oral cavity disease prevention with impact on human health is limited.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • The topical application of streptococcal probiotics is a relatively undeveloped field but is becoming an attractive approach for both prevention and therapy, especially for pediatric age patients.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
