Clostridium septicum: A species of gram-positive bacteria in the family Clostridiaceae. Infections have a strong association with malignancies and also with GAS GANGRENE.Gas Gangrene: 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.Clostridium: A genus of motile or nonmotile gram-positive bacteria of the family Clostridiaceae. Many species have been identified with some being pathogenic. They occur in water, soil, and in the intestinal tract of humans and lower animals.Clostridium Infections: Infections with bacteria of the genus CLOSTRIDIUM.Panophthalmitis: Acute suppurative inflammation of the inner eye with necrosis of the sclera (and sometimes the cornea) and extension of the inflammation into the orbit. Pain may be severe and the globe may rupture. In endophthalmitis the globe does not rupture.Aortitis: Inflammation of the wall of the AORTA.Clostridium chauvoei: A species of gram-positive bacteria in the family Clostridiaceae isolated from infected CATTLE; SHEEP; and other animals. It causes blackleg in cattle and sheep and is transmitted through soil-borne spores.Aneurysm, Infected: Aneurysm due to growth of microorganisms in the arterial wall, or infection arising within preexisting arteriosclerotic aneurysms.Antipain: An oligopeptide produced by various bacteria which acts as a protease inhibitor.Bacterial Toxins: Toxic substances formed in or elaborated by bacteria; they are usually proteins with high molecular weight and antigenicity; some are used as antibiotics and some to skin test for the presence of or susceptibility to certain diseases.Clostridium difficile: A common inhabitant of the colon flora in human infants and sometimes in adults. It produces a toxin that causes pseudomembranous enterocolitis (ENTEROCOLITIS, PSEUDOMEMBRANOUS) in patients receiving antibiotic therapy.Fatal Outcome: Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients. This should be differentiated from DEATH, the physiological cessation of life and from MORTALITY, an epidemiological or statistical concept.Pore Forming Cytotoxic Proteins: Proteins secreted from an organism which form membrane-spanning pores in target cells to destroy them. This is in contrast to PORINS and MEMBRANE TRANSPORT PROTEINS that function within the synthesizing organism and COMPLEMENT immune proteins. These pore forming cytotoxic proteins are a form of primitive cellular defense which are also found in human LYMPHOCYTES.Clostridium botulinum: A species of anaerobic, gram-positive, rod-shaped bacteria in the family Clostridiaceae that produces proteins with characteristic neurotoxicity. It is the etiologic agent of BOTULISM in humans, wild fowl, HORSES; and CATTLE. Seven subtypes (sometimes called antigenic types, or strains) exist, each producing a different botulinum toxin (BOTULINUM TOXINS). The organism and its spores are widely distributed in nature.Dictionaries, MedicalPubMed: A bibliographic database that includes MEDLINE as its primary subset.

Small lipid-soluble molecules such as carbon dioxide and oxygen move freely by diffusion. Water and water-soluble molecules cannot pass through the endothelial walls and are dependent on microscopic pores. These pores show narrow areas (TIGHT JUNCTIONS) which may limit large molecule movement.Veterinary Medicine: The medical science concerned with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases in animals.Veterinary Drugs: Drugs used by veterinarians in the treatment of animal diseases. The veterinarian's pharmacological armamentarium is the counterpart of drugs treating human diseases, with dosage and administration adjusted to the size, weight, disease, and idiosyncrasies of the species.

Identification of functional domains of Clostridium septicum alpha toxin. (1/14)Alpha toxin (AT) is the major virulence factor of Clostridium septicum that is a proteolytically activated pore-forming toxin that belongs to the aerolysin-like family of toxins. AT is predicted to be a three-domain molecule on the basis of its functional and sequence similarity with aerolysin, for which the crystal structure has been determined. In this study, we have substituted the entire primary structure of AT with alanine or cysteine to identify those amino acids that comprise functional domains involved in receptor binding, oligomerization, and pore formation. These studies revealed that receptor binding is restricted to domain 1 of the AT structure, whereas domains 1 and 3 are involved in oligomerization. These studies also revealed the presence of a putative functional region of AT proximal to the receptor-binding domain but distal from the pore-forming domain that is proposed to regulate the insertion of the transmembrane beta-hairpin of the prepore oligomer.

A case of Clostridium septicum spontaneous gas gangrene. (2/14)Severe skin and soft tissue infections (SSTIs) are often life-threatening emergencies that require a rapid diagnosis. Gas gangrene is one of the most fulminant types of SSTI and is usually caused by Clostridium perfringens' contamination of an open wound. Although gas gangrene is usually associated with fecally contaminated wounds, "spontaneous" cases occur and are most commonly caused by Clostridium (C.) septicum. We report a case of spontaneous gas gangrene caused by C. septicum that only became manifest while the patient was being monitored in the emergency department. We also review the diagnosis and treatment aspects of this entity. (+info)

Evidence for Clostridium septicum as a primary cause of cellulitis in commercial turkeys. (6/14)Etiology and methods of immunoprophylaxis against common field cellulitis in commercial turkeys were evaluated. It was determined that intravenous administration ( approximately 10(8) cells/ml) of 1 of 4 isolates of Clostridium septicum from cellulitis lesions rapidly caused the classic lesions of cellulitis followed by death within 36 hr at high doses. When the supernatant alone was injected into turkey poults, signs of depression and ataxia were temporarily observed for up to 20 hr after injection, but no cellulitis lesions were detected. An enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay was developed to measure antibody levels against the isolated C. septicum. This assay was used to predict susceptibility to infection. An experimental formalin-killed bacterin/toxoid was produced from the challenge strain of C. septicum with inactivation timed to allow toxin accumulation and approximately 10(8) cells/ml. This bacterin/toxoid given at day of hatch generated a rapid and persistent antibody response against the homologous C. septicum in the vaccinated birds at 9 weeks (P < 0.001). The ability of this experimental vaccine to protect birds in the field as well as its ability to evaluate unvaccinated flocks to establish the time of seroconversion and the relationship to clinical disease are currently under evaluation.

Clostridium septicum aortitis causing aortic dissection in a 22-year-old man. (7/14)Clostridium septicum infection is a rare cause of aortic dissection, and the mortality rate for the condition is high. Only 26 cases of C. septicum aortitis have been reported; all of those patients were elderly, and 20 of them had an associated colonic neoplasm. Herein, we present the case of a 22-year-old man whose C. septicum aortitis resulted in aortic dissection that involved the entire length of the aorta. Upon autopsy, no neoplasm or other predisposing condition was identified in this patient. To the best of our knowledge, this is the 1st report of C. septicum aortitis, fatal or otherwise, in a young individual. (+info)

Deadly combination: Clostridium septicum and colorectal malignancy -- Cullinane et al. 2017 -- BMJ Case Reports
Gas gangrene or C. myonecrosis is a rare life-threatening illness that results in necrotising soft tissue injury. Early recognition and diagnosis is imperative as the disease course is rapid. Risk factors for developing fulminant soft tissue infections include trauma, immunosupression, diabetes and vascular disease. More specifically, gas gangrene is commonly associated with patients post surgery or trauma due to the presence of Clostridium perfringes. Only 16% of cases occur spontaneously and the organisms responsible is usually the more virulent C. septicum.1 2 Clostridium is an anaerobic, spore-forming, positive rod.2 It constitutes part of the normal flora of the gastrointestinal tract. There are over 100 different strains of Clostridium of varying clinical significance. C. septicum infection resulting in bacteraemia is extremely rare. Larson et al 3 reviewed all cases of Clostridium infection at their institution from 1966 to 1993. Among 241 cases of Clostridium, 32 cases were C. septicum ...

In order to get basic results which allow the phylogenetic localisation and identification of Clostridium chauvoei and the closely related species Clostridium septicum, we cloned and sequenced the rrs genes encoding the 16SrRNA for these species and determined their phylogenetic position in Clostridium cluster I (C. carnis, C. perfringens, C. botulinum, C. tetani). Based on DNA sequence data, we developed an identification system for C. chauvoei, using specific PCR amplification of the rrs gene with specific oligonucleotids. ... The developed identification system was evaluated on clinical material during a recent outbreak of blackleg. Thereby C. chauvoei was identified as the etiological agent of the outbreak either directly from clinical samples of muscle, liver spleen and kidney or from primary cultures made with this material ...
This is a randomized, multi-center, prospective, double blind study.

Klostridiji so grampozitivne bakterije, ki tvorijo spore. Naravno okolje klostridijev je nasplošno živalsko in človeško črevesje, zato so vegetativne oblike bakterij in spore prisotne v zemlji, še posebej v tisti, ki je gnojena s hlevskim gnojem, ter v prahu, vodah in na rastlinah. So obligatni anaerobi, kar pomeni, da lahko rastejo in se razmnožujejo samo v okolju, v katerem ni prisoten kisik. Prisotnost kisika izrazimo z oksido-redukcijskim potencialom (Eh), ki mora biti za rast klostridijev v določenem okolju čim bolj negativen. V tkivu pride do znižanja Eh v primeru slabe prekrvljenosti in prisotnosti tujkov, ki vsebujejo kalcij (Ca2+), kar je največkrat posledica raznovrstnih poškodb. Zato so okužbe s klostridiji povezane z vojnami (npr. strelne rane) in raznovrstnimi nesrečami, kjer nastanejo obsežne in okužene rane. Plinsko gangreno najpogosteje povzroča C. perfringens tipa A, lahko pa tudi C. septicum, C. novyi tipa A, C. histolyticum, C. sordelii in C. ramnosum. Vse ...

Gas gangrene is a condition where anaerobic bacteria release toxins that cause tissue death, and if not treated can be fatal. Gas gangrene is typically an infection of muscle tissue and a characteristic sign of infection is the presence of blisters that bubble with gas near infected areas. There are fewer than 3,000 cases in the United States annually. In this article you will find out more about gas gangrene symptoms and whether there have been historical outbreaks of gas gangrene.
Gas gangrene is caused by exotoxin-producing Clostridium species (most often C. perfringens, and C. novyi, but less commonly C. septicum or C. ramnosum), which are mostly found in soil, but also found as normal gut flora, and other anaerobes (e.g., Bacteroides and anaerobic streptococci). The exotoxin is commonly found in C. perfringens type A strain and is known as alpha toxin. This alpha toxin is a lethal toxin and also known as phospholipase C (lecithinase). It increases vascular permeability and produces necrotizing activity. These environmental bacteria may enter the muscle through a wound and go on to proliferate in necrotic tissue and secrete powerful toxins. These toxins destroy nearby tissue, generating gas at the same time.. Other organisms may occasionally cause gas gangrene (for example, Klebsiella pneumoniae in the context of diabetes).. A gas composition of 5.9% hydrogen, 3.4% carbon dioxide, 74.5% nitrogen, and 16.1% oxygen was reported in one clinical ...
Gas gangrene, or clostridial myonecrosis, is usually caused by Clostridium perfringens and may occur spontaneously in association with diabetes mellitus, peripheral vascular disease, or some malignancies but more often after contamination of a deep surgical or traumatic lesion.

Conference Comment: The contributor provides a good summary of C. piliforme, an atypical member of the genus Clostridium. Other members of the clostridia are large, Gram positive spore forming bacteria with straight or slightly curved morphology, in contrast the filamentous, Gram negative spore forming C. piliforme.(2) Further differentiating C. piliforme from other clostridia is the fact that it does not possess characteristics that allow its inclusion into one of the three general categories of the other pathogenic members of the genus. These categories of clostridia are neurotoxic (C. tetani, C. botulinum types A-G), histotoxic (C. chauvoei, C. septicum, C. novyi types A and B, C. perfringens type A, C. sordellii, C. hemolyticum), and enteropathogenic/enterotoxemia-producing (C. perfringens types A-E, C. difficile, C. colinum, C. spiroforme).(2 ...

Gas gangrene occurs as a result of infection by Clostridium species of bacteria that under anaerobic (low oxygen) conditions, produce toxins that cause the tissue death and associated symptoms. Gas gangrene generally occurs at the site of trauma or a recent surgical wound. The onset of gas gangrene is sudden and dramatic. Inflammation begins at the site of infection as pale to brownish-red extremely painful tissue swelling. Gas may be felt in the tissue as a crackly sensation when the swollen area is pressed with the fingers. The margins of the infected area expand so rapidly that changes are visible over a few minutes of time. The involved tissue is completely destroyed. Clostridia species of bacteria produce many different toxins, four of which (alpha, beta, epsilon, iota) are all fatal. In addition they cause tissue death (necrosis), destruction of blood (hemolysis), local decrease in circulation (vasoconstriction), and leaking on the blood vessels (increased vascular permeability).

Clostridium cadaveris is an enteric, gas-forming, motile, strictly anaerobic gram-positive bacterium of the genus Clostridium. First described by Klein in 1899, it was noted to be the most prominent bacteria during human decomposition; historically it was described as "putrefying flora". Clostridium cadaveris is usually considered non-pathogenic; unlike other species of Clostridium, it does not produce toxins. Clostridium cadaveris is found in soil, water, and is a normal component of the human intestinal tract. The genus Clostridium is large and phylogenetically diverse, comprising over 150 species. Clostrida are extensively found in nature predominantly as benign soil saprophytes. A number of Clostridium species are pathogenic to humans. Members including C.botulinium, C. perfringens, and C.septicum are spore forming and the cause of botulism and gas gangrene respectively. Clostridium cadaveris is closely related phylogenetically to Clostridium fallax and Clostridium intestinale. Infections in ...

Clostridium perfringens (formerly known as C. welchii) is a Gram-positive, rod-shaped, anaerobic, spore-forming bacterium of the genus Clostridium. It is always present in nature and is a normal component of decaying vegetation, marine sediment, the intestinal tract of humans, other vertebrates, insects, and soil. It can be a human pathogen and also harmlessly ingested. Commonly it is encountered in infections as a component of the normal flora where it takes a minor role in the disease. Infections show some evidence of tissue necrosis, bacteremia, emphysematous cholecystitis, and gas gangrene, which is also known as clostridial myonecrosis. The toxin in gas gangrene is Î±-toxin which inserts into the plasma membrane of cells disrupting normal cellular function C. perfringens. Ingestion can lead to bacteria multiplying and leading to colic, diarrhea, and sometimes nausea. C. perfringens bacteria are the third-most-common cause of food-borne illness, with poorly prepared meat and poultry the ...

Preliminary crystallographic analysis of two oligomerization-deficient mutants of the aerolysin toxin, H132D and H132N, in...
Aerolysin is a major virulence factor produced by the Gram-negative bacterium Aeromonas hydrophila and is a member of the beta-pore-forming toxin family. Two oligomerization-deficient aerolysin mutants, H132D and H132N, have been overproduced, proteolyzed by trypsin digestion and purified. Crystals were grown from the proteolyzed forms and diffraction data were collected for the two mutants to 2.1 and 2.3 A resolution, respectively. The prism-shaped crystals belonged to space group C2. The crystal structure of the mutants in the mature, but not heptameric, aerolysin form will provide insight into the intermediate states in the oligomerization process of a pore-forming toxin..

For clostridial myositis and myonecrosis (gas gangrene) or spreading clostridial cellulitis with systemic toxicity (or a presumptive diagnosis of either) the preferred treatment is a combination of hyperbaric oxygen (HBO2), surgery, and antibiotics.. Clostridial myositis and myonecrosis or gas gangrene is an acute, rapidly progressive, non-pyogenic, invasive clostridial infection of the muscles, characterized by profound toxemia, extensive edema, massive death of tissue, and a variable degree of gas production.. Gas gangrene is either an endogenous infection, caused by contamination from a clostridial focus in the body, or an exogenous infection, mostly in patients with compound and/or complicated fractures with extensive soft tissue injuries after street accidents.. The infection is caused by anaerobic, spore‑forming, Gram‑ positive encapsulated bacilli of the genus clostridium, discovered by William H. Welch in 1891. More than 150 species of clostridium have been recognized but the most ...
Biomarkers for Duchenne muscular dystrophy: myonecrosis, inflammation and oxidative stress | Disease Models & Mechanisms
Bouts of intrinsic myonecrosis in DMD can also directly damage neuromuscular junctions (NMJs; Box 1). The adverse progressive changes in NMJs, which indicate denervation, are widely reported in dystrophic muscles of rodent and dog models of DMD (Haddix et al., 2018). These altered NMJs affect the associated dystrophic nerve over time, with consequent increased levels of S100 and Tau5 proteins seen by 13 months of age in sciatic nerves of mdx mice (Gordish-Dressman et al., 2018). Such neuronal changes indicate progressive irreversible denervation, often associated with neurodegeneration (Krishnan et al., 2016), that is likely to become pronounced over many years or decades and contribute to the loss of muscle function in DMD patients. These preclinical neuronal changes could prove useful as a biomarker for the long-term consequences of repeated intrinsic myonecrosis in animal studies.. A key aim for DMD therapies is to prevent myonecrosis and to directly stabilise the myofibres, ideally by ...

Outcomes of Phase II Clinical Trials with Single-Agent Therapies in Advanced/Metastatic Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Published...
Phase II studies are among the most common studies in cancer clinical research. The quality of phase II data may be one of the most important factors for predicting the success of a phase III trial (7, 8). However, many phase II trials prove to be of limited value in the drug development trajectory.. In our report, the number of phase II studies with single-agent therapy published and indexed in the PubMed database nearly doubled in the 5-year period from 2005 to 2009 as compared with 2000 to 2004 (93 studies with 5,188 patients enrolled vs. 50 studies with 2,513 patients). However, this increase did not translate into improvements in outcomes as measured by RR, PFS, and OS. The actual, rather than apparent, reality might be even more disappointing as trials with poor outcomes tend to not be published (9).. The reported outcomes (RR, PFS, and OS) did not consistently differ with respect to the type of therapy, number of institutions involved, presence of randomization, trial endpoints, number of ...

Patients with an advanced form of metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) may benefit from surgical resection of all or part of the lung if combined with chemotherapy and radiation therapy.
Patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) who received early palliative care lived two months longer than patients receiving standard care and reported improved mood and quality of life, according to a study in the Aug. 19 New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM).
Already sanctioned by the FDA in May for urothelial carcinoma, the anti-PD-L1 agent atezolizumab (Tecentriq; Genentech) earned approval in late October for use in patients with metastatic non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) that has advanced in spite of first-line treatment with platinum-based chemotherapy. For patients with EGFR or ALK aberrations, the drug is indicated for use after the disease has progressed with an FDA-approved targeted therapy.. Atezolizumabs approval was based on the results of two large international randomized trials: the phase III OAK and phase II POPLAR studies. In the OAK study, in which researchers conducted a primary analysis of the first 850 of 1,225 patients, those who received atezolizumab had a median overall survival (OS) of 13.8 months, compared with 9.6 months for those treated with docetaxel. In the POPLAR study, median OS was 12.6 months and 9.7 months, respectively. Patients with both squamous and non-squamous disease were enrolled, regardless of their ...

Diabetic myonecrosis is a complication of diabetes. It is caused by infarcted muscle tissue, usually in the thigh. The mean age at presentation is thirty-seven years with a reported range of nineteen to sixty-four years. The mean age of onset since diagnosis of diabetes is fifteen years. The female:male ratio is 1.3:1. Other diabetic complications such as nephropathy, neuropathy, retinopathy and hypertension are usually present. Its major symptom is the acute onset muscle pain, usually in the thigh, in the absence of trauma. Signs include exquisite muscle tenderness and swelling. Tissue biopsy is the gold standard. Macroscopically this reveals pale muscle tissue. Microscopically infarcted patches of myocytes. Necrotic muscle fibers are swollen and eosinophilic and lack striations and nuclei. Small-vessel walls are thickened and hyalinized, with luminal narrowing or complete occlusion. Biopsy cultures for bacteria, fungi, acid-fast bacilli and stains are negative in simple myonecrosis. Creatine ...

Hi, Marianne! Thanks for the question. Approximately 30 turkeys were removed from a normal commercial production flock and were raised separately on the Foltz farm in Mathias, WV. The birds are commercial turkeys used in normal industry production, and they were raised using the same techniques as other commercial birds. They were fed a regular diet of corn and soybean meal and were provided a continuous supply of fresh water. A few minor modifications were made to prepare the birds for the National Thanksgiving Turkey presentation. The birds are periodically hand fed and given additional interaction with people in an effort to acclimate them to the environment they will experience during the Rose Garden ceremony. Mr. Foltz s children Kolby, Kollin and Korey have done most of the work socializing the turkeys. Mr. O Carroll, in consultation with Mr. Foltz, chose the two turkeys for the ceremony (an alternate is chosen in case the National Thanksgiving Turkey becomes ill or otherwise cannot ...
