A phosphatidylserine-binding site in the cytosolic fragment of Clostridium sordellii lethal toxin facilitates glucosylation of membrane-bound Rac and is required for cytotoxicity. (1/28)

Large clostridial toxins glucosylate some small G proteins on a threonine residue, thereby preventing their interactions with effector molecules and regulators. We show that the glucosyltransferase domain of lethal toxin from Clostridium sordellii (LT(cyt); amino acids 1-546), which is released into the cytosol during cell infection, binds preferentially to liposomes containing phosphatidylserine as compared with other anionic lipids. The binding of LT(cyt) to phosphatidylserine increases by two orders of magnitude the rate of glucosylation of liposome-bound geranyl-geranylated Rac-GDP. Limited proteolysis and deletion studies show that the binding site for phosphatidylserine lies within the first 18 N-terminal residues of LT(cyt). Deletion of these residues abolishes the effect of phosphatidylserine on the activity of LT(cyt) on liposome-bound geranyl-geranylated Rac-GDP and prevents the morphological effects induced by LT(cyt) microinjection into various cells, but it does not affect the intrinsic activity of LT(cyt) on non-geranyl-geranylated Rac-GDP in solution. We conclude that the avidity of LT(cyt) for phosphatidylserine facilitates its targeting to the cytosolic leaflet of cell membranes and, notably, the plasma membrane, where this anionic lipid is abundant and where several targets of lethal toxin reside.  (+info)

Clostridium sordellii toxic shock syndrome after medical abortion with mifepristone and intravaginal misoprostol--United States and Canada, 2001-2005. (2/28)

On July 19, 2005, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a public health advisory regarding the deaths of four women in the United States after medical abortions with Mifeprex (mifepristone, formerly RU-486; Danco Laboratories, New York, New York) and intravaginal misoprostol. Two of these deaths occurred in 2003, one in 2004, and one in 2005. Two of these U.S. cases had clinical illness consistent with toxic shock and had evidence of endometrial infection with Clostridium sordellii, a gram-positive, toxin-forming anaerobic bacteria. In addition, a fatal case of C. sordellii toxic shock syndrome after medical abortion with mifepristone and misoprostol was reported in 2001, in Canada. All three cases of C. sordellii infection were notable for lack of fever, and all had refractory hypotension, multiple effusions, hemoconcentration, and a profound leukocytosis. C. sordellii previously has been described as a cause of pregnancy-associated toxic shock syndrome.  (+info)

Fatal toxic shock syndrome associated with Clostridium sordellii after medical abortion. (3/28)

Endometritis and toxic shock syndrome associated with Clostridium sordellii have previously been reported after childbirth and, in one case, after medical abortion. We describe four deaths due to endometritis and toxic shock syndrome associated with C. sordellii that occurred within one week after medically induced abortions. Clinical findings included tachycardia, hypotension, edema, hemoconcentration, profound leukocytosis, and absence of fever. These cases indicate the need for physician awareness of this syndrome and for further study of its association with medical abortion.  (+info)

Sudden death associated with Clostridium sordellii in captive lions (Panthera leo). (4/28)

In the spring of 2003, a series of sudden deaths in a group of adult lions (Panthera leo) with a previous history of depression, inanition, and lethargy, was investigated. Five animals died within 24 to 36 hours after onset of signs of disease. Serologic screening for viral disease detection was negative, evidence of parasites was not detected, and results of a complete blood count and serum biochemical analysis were within reference intervals in all lions. The most relevant lesions observed were multiple areas of necrosis and hemorrhage in the intestinal outer muscular layer, and cellulitis with an intense bloody edema in the mesenteric and the pericardial fat tissue. On the basis of the fulminant course of the disease, the gross and histologic findings, and the isolation and identification of Clostridium sordellii, a diagnosis of infectious myositis and cellulitis associated with acute clostridiosis was made. To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of sudden death associated with C. sordellii in felines.  (+info)

Clostridium sordellii infection: epidemiology, clinical findings, and current perspectives on diagnosis and treatment. (5/28)

Clostridium sordellii infections pose difficult clinical challenges and are usually fatal. Most commonly, these infections occur after trauma, childbirth, and routine gynecological procedures, but they have recently been associated with medically induced abortions and injection drug use. We report 2 fatal cases, one of which was associated with minor trauma, and the other of which was associated with normal childbirth, and we summarize the clinical features of 43 additional cases of reported C. sordellii infection. Of these 45 cases, 8 (18%) were associated with normal childbirth, 5 (11%) were associated with medically induced abortion, and 2 (0.4%) were associated with spontaneous abortion. The case-fatality rate was 100% in these groups. Ten (22%) of the C. sordellii infections occurred in injection drug users, and 50% of these patients died. Other cases of C. sordellii infection (in 19 patients [43%]) occurred after trauma or surgery, mostly in healthy persons, and 53% these patients died. Overall, the mortality rate was 69% (31 of 45 patients). Eighty-five percent of all patients with fatal cases died within 2-6 days of initial infection, and nearly 80% of fatal cases developed leukemoid reactions. Rapid diagnostic tests and improved treatments are needed to reduced the morbidity and mortality associated with this devastating infection.  (+info)

Infection of internal umbilical remnant in foals by Clostridium sordellii. (6/28)

Omphalitis and the resulting septicemia contribute to perinatal mortality in several animal species. In foals, the most important causes of omphalitis are Escherichia coli and Streptococcus zooepidemicus. However to date, no information has been published about the role of Clostridium sordellii in these infections. In this paper, we describe 8 cases of perinatal mortality in foals associated with internal umbilical remnant infection by C. sordellii. The foals studied were between 12 and 21 days old at the time of death, and various breeds were represented in the group. Five of the foals were male and 3 were female. The diagnosis was established on the basis of the detection of C. sordellii by 3 methods (culture, fluorescent antibody test, and immunohistochemistry) and on gross and histopathologic findings. All foals had acute peritonitis, and the internal umbilical remnant was thickened by edema, hemorrhage, and fibrosis. A moderate amount of serosanguinous fluid with fibrin strands was present in the pericardial sac and pleural cavity. Histopathologically, the urachus and umbilical arterial walls were thickened by edema and exhibited hemorrhage, fibrin, and leukocytic infiltration. Gram-positive bacterial rods were observed in subepithelial areas of the urachus, the adventicia of umbilical arteries, and interstitium of the internal umbilical remnant. On the basis of these findings, we suggest that C. sordellii should be considered in the differential diagnosis for infections of the internal umbilical remnant in foals.  (+info)

The leukemoid reaction in Clostridium sordellii infection: neuraminidase induction of promyelocytic cell proliferation. (7/28)

Life-threatening Clostridium sordellii infections have recently been reported in women undergoing therapeutic abortion, during natural childbirth, and in injection drug users. Shock, diffuse capillary leak, and a leukemoid reaction (LR) are cardinal features of these infections. The magnitude of the LR is highly correlated with mortality. We have isolated a 42-kDa extractable protein from C. sordellii culture supernatant that stimulates proliferation of promyelocytic HL-60 cells in vitro. Using mass spectrometry, we have identified this protein as the C. sordellii neuraminidase, NanS. Recombinant NanS (rNanS) dose dependently stimulated HL-60 cell proliferation. Increased proliferation was observed when HL-60 cells were cocultured with both rNanS and granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor. In addition, NanS also modified vascular cell adhesion molecule 1, which orchestrates the release of mature and immature granulocytes from bone marrow stromal cells. Thus, neuraminidase likely plays an important role in the characteristic LR in C. sordellii infection.  (+info)

The large clostridial toxins from Clostridium sordellii and C. difficile repress glucocorticoid receptor activity. (8/28)

We have previously shown that Bacillus anthracis lethal toxin represses glucocorticoid receptor (GR) transactivation. We now report that repression of GR activity also occurs with the large clostridial toxins produced by Clostridium sordellii and C. difficile. This was demonstrated using a transient transfection assay system for GR transactivation. We also report that C. sordellii lethal toxin inhibited GR function in an ex vivo assay, where toxin reduced the dexamethasone suppression of the proinflammatory cytokine tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha). Furthermore, the glucocorticoid antagonist RU-486 in combination with C. sordellii lethal toxin additively prevented glucocorticoid suppression of TNF-alpha. These findings corroborate the fact that GR is a target for the toxin and suggest a physiological role for toxin-associated GR repression in inflammation. Finally, we show that this repression is associated with toxins that inactivate p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK).  (+info)

Post-abortion infection is not well defined as one particular type of infection in studies of medical abortion 33 . The most common type of infection reported is endometritis, which is an infection of the lining of the uterus, and genital tract. It may involve infection of reproductive organs and the urinary system. Clostridium sordellii sepsis is another type of post-abortion infection that is extremely rare. Doctors analyzed one case in which a woman died from complications associated with Clostridium sordellii infection, and determined that even though the infection was associated with medical abortion, the case does not alter the overall proven safety of medical abortions induced with Mifepristone and Misoprostol 11 . Clostridium sordellii can also cause fatal infections in women who have just given birth 39 . It is not an infection that only affects women having medical abortions.. Clostridium sordellii specifically called attention to the somewhat unusual and rather distinctive signs and ...
Clostridium difficile and C. sordellii are two anaerobic, spore forming, gram positive pathogens with a broad host range and the ability to cause lethal infections. Despite strong similarities between the two Clostridial strains, differences in their host tissue preference place C. difficile infections in the gastrointestinal tract and C. sordellii infections in soft tissues. In this study, to improve our understanding of C. sordellii and C. difficile virulence and pathogenesis, we have performed a comparative genomic and phenomic analysis of the two. The global phenomes of C. difficile and C. sordellii were compared using Biolog Phenotype microarrays. When compared to C. difficile, C. sordellii was found to better utilize more complex sources of carbon and nitrogen, including peptides. Phenotype microarray comparison also revealed that C. sordellii was better able to grow in acidic pH conditions. Using next generation sequencing technology, we determined the draft genome of C.
Lethal Toxin from Clostridium sordellii (TcsL), which is casually involved in the toxic shock syndrome and in gas gangrene, enters its target cells by receptor-mediated endocytosis. Inside the cell, TcsL mono-O-glucosylates and thereby inactivates Rac/Cdc42 and Ras subtype GTPases, resulting in actin reorganization and an activation of p38 MAP kinase. While a role of p38 MAP kinase in TcsL-induced cell death is well established, data on a role of p38 MAP kinase in TcsL-induced actin reorganization are not available. In this study, TcsL-induced Rac/Cdc42 glucosylation and actin reorganization are differentially analyzed in p38alpha−/− MSCV empty vector MEFs and the corresponding cell line with reconstituted p38alpha expression (p38alpha−/− MSCV p38alpha MEFs). Genetic deletion of p38alpha results in reduced susceptibility of cells to TcsL-induced Rac/Cdc42 glucosylation and actin reorganization. Furthermore, SB203580, a pyridinyl imidazole inhibitor of p38alpha/beta MAP kinase, also protects

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDOH) has received reports of three previously healthy persons who died unexpectedly following uncomplicated knee surgery; two had total knee replacements and one had a cartilage graft implantation. The surgeries were performed at two local hospitals. Two patients died on November 11, 2001, and one died on November 16, approximately 36--82 hours following surgery. CDC is assisting MDOH in the investigation of these events. All three patients became ill 1--4 days following surgery. Symptoms included severe abdominal pain and a sudden decline in blood pressure followed by a fulminant course with death within 24 hours of symptom onset. The clinical course was consistent with septic or cardiogenic shock. After 5 days of incubation, a blood culture taken from one of the patients yielded Clostridium sordellii. The source of infection in the one patient and the cause of death in all patients remain unknown. In response to these deaths, MDOH is recommending that all ...
Protokół aborcji farmakologicznej w Kanadzie obejmuje metotreksat i mizoprostol. Mifepriston nie został w tym celu zarejestrowany i obecnie nie jest legalnie dostępny.

Rectal biopsies were maintained in organ culture over a 24-hour culture period, with good preservation of histological architecture. A filtrate containing Clostridium difficile toxin significantly inhibited the rise in epithelial alkaline phosphatase activity normally seen during culture. This effect was abolished by pre-incubation of the filtrate with Clostridium sordellii antitoxin, or heat inactivation. This effect is most probably due to a toxin of C. difficile. The method provides a new quantitative approach to the study of luminal toxins as possible pathogenic agents in idiopathic inflammatory diseases of the colon.
Clostridium difficile is an important nosocomial pathogen, resulting in antibiotic-associated disease ranging from mild diarrhoea to the life-threatening pseudomembranous colitis. Upon antibiotic exposure, it is believed that the normal bowel microflora of patients is disrupted, allowing C. difficile to proliferate. Significantly, C. difficile is among only a few bacteria able to ferment tyrosine to p-cresol, a phenolic compound that is toxic to other microbes via its ability to interfere with metabolism. Therefore, the ability of different C. difficile strains to produce and tolerate p-cresol may play an important role in the development and severity of C. difficile-associated disease. In this study, it was demonstrated that two C. difficile hypervirulent 027 strains (Stoke Mandeville and BI-16) are more tolerant to p-cresol than other C. difficile strains including 630, CF4 and CD196. Surprising, it was shown that Clostridium sordellii also has a high tolerance to p-cresol, suggesting an overlap in

Extreme leukocytosis and leukemoid reaction associated with the lung sarcomatoid carcinoma: an unusual case report Danyang Wang, Haiyan Zhang, Fengkuan Yu, Baijun Fang Department of Hematopathy, The Affiliated Cancer Hospital of Zhengzhou University, Zhengzhou, People’s Republic of China Purpose: To report a rare case of extreme leukocytosis and leukemoid reaction associated with lung sarcomatoid carcinoma (LSC) and increase people’s awareness of the disease. Patients and methods: A 58-year-old male patient was diagnosed with LSC; however, after the end of the second course of chemotherapy, his white blood cells increased gradually without fever or use of medications such as granulocyte colony-stimulating factor and steroids. A bone marrow biopsy then confirmed it to be a leukemoid reaction. Results: The patient died of multiple organ failure 2 months after being diagnosed with leukocytosis. Conclusion: LSC associated with leukemoid reaction is very rare and the prognosis is
A successful pregnancy requires that the maternal immune system adapts to tolerate the semi-allogeneic fetal-placental unit. This adaptation mainly occurs locally, i.e. at the fetal-maternal interface, where fetal-derived tissues come into close contact with maternal cells in the uterine endometrium (called decidua during pregnancy). Macrophages and regulatory T (Treg) cells are maternal immune cells that are enriched in the decidua and they likely play a central role in promoting fetal tolerance. However, the precise function of decidual macrophages and the factors regulating both macrophages and Treg cells in humans are unknown. The aim of this thesis was to characterize the phenotype and function of decidual macrophages from first trimester human pregnancy and to identify factors responsible for inducing tolerogenic properties in both decidual macrophages and Treg cells. CD14+ decidual macrophages showed characteristics of immune suppressive or homeostatic macrophages (expression of CD163, ...
Paraneoplastic leukemoid reaction is rare in patients with primary pancreatic cancer. In literature review, we found only five previous cases of a leukemoid reaction in patients with pancreatic cancer.5, 6, 7, 8, 9 In 1971, Akoun et al.7 described the first case of myeloid leukemoid reaction in a pancreatic cancer patient. Since then, four cases with leukemoid reaction associated with pancreatic cancer have been reported.6, 7, 8, 9 This case, to the best of our knowledge, is the first case reporting the paraneoplastic leukemoid reaction with pancreatic cancer in Korea.. Paraneoplastic leukemoid reaction is diagnosed by excluding other secondary causes.4 In our patient, catheter-related infection was suspected during the early admission period but leukocytosis worsened after proper treatment for the infection. Multiple follow up blood cultures were negative, and further workups for infectious etiology were negative as well. Leukemoid reactions in advanced malignancy are mostly myelocytic. On the ...

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 ...

Decidual macrophages (DM) are the second most abundant population in the fetal-maternal interface. Their role has been so far identified as being local immuno-modulators favoring the maternal tolerance to the fetus. Herein we investigated tissue samples from 11 cases of spontaneous miscarriages and from 9 cases of elective terminations of pregnancy. Using immunohistochemistry and dual immunofluorescence we have demonstrated that in spontaneous miscarriages the DM are significantly increased. Additionally, we noted a significant up-regulation of macrophage FasL expression. Our results further support a dual role for DM during pregnancy and miscarriages. We hypothesize that the baseline DM population in normal pregnancy is in line with an M2 phenotype supporting the ongoing gestation. In contrast, during spontaneous miscarriages, the increased FasL-expressing population could be a part of an M1 phenotype participating in Fas/FasL-related apoptosis. Our results highlight a new aspect of macrophage biology

Methods have been developed for isolating human tissue macrophages from first trimester or term pregnancy decidua. After a two stage enzymic digestion, viable cells were separated from cellular debris by velocity sedimentation at unit gravity or by Percoll centrifugation. Cell populations were analysed by flow cytometry after labelling with monoclonal antibodies. In term decidua, 47% of the cells were of bone marrow origin, comprising 18% macrophages, 3% large granular lymphocytes and 8% T cells. The remaining cells, the proportion of which varied between individuals, were CD16-positive granulocytes. Macrophages were isolated flow cytometrically from both first trimester and term decidual cell dispersions after labelling with an antibody to MHC class II. Yields of up to 4 X 10(6) macrophages, greater than 95% pure, were routinely obtained.
