Necrotic enteritis is an economically important poultry disease caused by the bacterium Clostridium perfringens. There are currently no necrotic enteritis vaccines commercially available for use in br...
Clostridium perfringens is a gram-positive anaerobic rod commonly found in our natural environment as well as in human intestinal and vaginal microflora. Due to its production of several toxins it may...
Loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP) is a promising, simple, rapid and sensitive molecular detection method. In the present study LAMP assay was developed for detecting Clostridium perfringen...
Food poisonings caused by Clostridium perfringens and Shiga toxin (Stx)-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) occur frequently worldwide; however, no vaccine is currently available. Therefore, we aimed to...
Enterotoxigenic Clostridium perfringens Infection as an Adverse Event After Faecal Microbiota Transplantation in Two Patients With Ulcerative Colitis and Recurrent Clostridium difficile Infection: A Neglected Agent in Donor Screening.
The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and tolerability of a modified C. difficile vaccine at 3 dose levels compared with a placebo control administered via intramuscular inj...
Clostridium difficle infection is the leading cause of hospital acquired infection and infectious diarrhea in hospitalized patients. Eradication treatment for this infection is the challen...
The primary objective of the study is to demonstrate non-inferiority of nitazoxanide compared to vancomycin in resolving symptoms of Clostridium difficile-associated disease (CDAD).
The Clover trial is evaluating an investigational vaccine that may help to prevent Clostridium difficile infection. Participants in the study are adults 50 years of age and older, who are ...
Clostridium difficile is the first cause of nosocomial infectious diarrhea, due to its mode of transmission and its resistance in the environment. Nosocomiality is defined by the appariti...
The most common etiologic agent of GAS GANGRENE. It is differentiable into several distinct types based on the distribution of twelve different toxins.
Infections with bacteria of the genus CLOSTRIDIUM.
A severe condition resulting from bacteria invading healthy muscle from adjacent traumatized muscle or soft tissue. The infection originates in a wound contaminated with bacteria of the genus CLOSTRIDIUM. C. perfringens accounts for the majority of cases (over eighty percent), while C. noyvi, C. septicum, and C. histolyticum cause most of the other cases.
A frequent complication of drug therapy for microbial infection. It may result from opportunistic colonization following immunosuppression by the primary pathogen and can be influenced by the time interval between infections, microbial physiology, or host resistance. Experimental challenge and in vitro models are sometimes used in virulence and infectivity studies.
Disease caused by the liberation of exotoxins of CLOSTRIDIUM PERFRINGENS in the intestines of sheep, goats, cattle, foals, and piglets. Type B enterotoxemia in lambs is lamb dysentery; type C enterotoxemia in mature sheep produces "struck", and in calves, lambs and piglets it produces hemorrhagic enterotoxemia; type D enterotoxemia in sheep and goats is pulpy-kidney disease or overeating disease.
