  • colonization
  • Here we discuss recent data on both, the factors involved in the heterogeneous expression of lipooligosaccharide (LOS) by C. jejuni and the importance of the interactions of C. jejuni with host glycans for colonization and infection. (frontiersin.org)
  • Despite the lack of pathology, several reports have shown induction of immune-associated gene and protein expression after Campylobacter colonization of chicken. (asm.org)
  • Immunity
  • Campylobacter jejuni from patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome preferentially expresses a GD1a-like epitope," Infection and Immunity , vol. 70, no. 9, pp. 5299-5303, 2002. (hindawi.com)
  • seropositivity could indicate recent infection, past infection, or immunity, and the distribution of these is likely to differ between seropositive cases and seropositive controls, leading to biased estimates of the Campylobacter -GBS association. (plos.org)
  • Patients
  • Patients with Campylobacter infection may appear to be ill. (medscape.com)
  • Evaluation of patients with Campylobacter infections can usually be performed on an outpatient basis. (medscape.com)
  • Data from patients with only culture-independent test results suggest that in 2012, the count of lab-identified Campylobacter cases could have been 9% higher and the number of STEC (O157 and non-O157) cases might have been 7% to 19% higher than in the FoodNet findings, the CDC report says. (umn.edu)
  • Of the 28 patients with positive stool specimens, 23 (33%) were patients who drank the unpasteurized milk, four were mothers of patients, and one patient had an unknown mode of infection. (cdc.gov)
  • Although only 1 case of GBS is estimated to occur per 2000 C. jejuni infections, about 25 to 40% of patients who develop GBS have had a prior C. jejuni infection. (merckmanuals.com)
  • Stool culture should be obtained plus blood cultures for patients with signs of focal infection or serious systemic illness. (merckmanuals.com)
  • 109 j k l Anti-infectives also are indicated in patients with B. henselae infections who develop bacillary angiomatosis, neuroretinitis, or Parinaud's oculoglandular syndrome. (drugs.com)
  • c d 102 Doxycycline is the preferred tetracycline for treatment of these infections, including presumptive treatment of chlamydial infections in patients with gonorrhea. (drugs.com)
  • These antibiotics are often prescribed incorrectly, putting patients at risk for harmful infections. (healthfinder.gov)
  • Untreatable and hard-to-treat infections from CRE germs are on the rise among patients in medical facilities. (healthfinder.gov)
  • Intestinal
  • Other studies have highlighted potential decoy receptor type interactions between host's intestinal mucins and C. jejuni , demonstrating the importance of host glycoproteins as defense against C. jejuni infection as well as the role for glycoconjugates found in human breast milk in protection of breast feeding infants from infection with C. jejuni . (frontiersin.org)
  • Researchers studying mice found that these infections progressively disable protection against intestinal inflammation. (foodpoisoningbulletin.com)
  • The researchers think that common repeated infections may trigger chronic intestinal inflammation. (foodpoisoningbulletin.com)
  • The mice cleared the pathogen several weeks after infection and reinfetiop, but the intestinal tissue damage and inflammation progressively increased in severity. (foodpoisoningbulletin.com)
  • severe
  • Campylobacter infections can range from asymptomatic to severe life-threatening colitis with toxic megacolon . (medscape.com)
  • The most severe infections occur in the very young, the elderly and malnourished people. (sa.gov.au)
  • 104 114 Used in conjunction with other anti-infectives (e.g., streptomycin or gentamicin and/or rifampin), 114 especially for severe infections or when there are complications (e.g., endocarditis, meningitis, osteomyelitis). (drugs.com)
