A case of canine salmonellosis due to Salmonella infantis. (1/6219)

A 7-year-old male dog kept outdoors manifested severe watery diarrhea with generalized weakness. Salmonella Infantis was isolated from a fecal sample and the dog recovered soon after medication with ampicillin, to which the isolate was highly sensitive. The present case was diagnosed as S. Infantis infection. Due to the importance of Salmonella in public health, soil samples were collected from the garden where the dog was kept and were examined for Salmonella, Some of them were positive for S. Infantis, however, no Salmonella was isolated from any soil samples collected after thorough disinfection of the surrounded environment.  (+info)

High turnover rate of Escherichia coli strains in the intestinal flora of infants in Pakistan. (2/6219)

The Escherichia coli flora of infants in developed countries is dominated by one or a few strains which persist for prolonged periods of time, but no longitudinal studies have been performed in developing countries. To this end, we studied the rectal enterobacterial flora in 22 home-delivered Pakistani infants during their first 6 months of life. Three colonies were isolated and species typed on each of 11 sampling occasions. E. coli isolates were strain typed using electromorphic typing of cytoplasmic enzymes, and their O serogroups were determined. There was a very rapid turnover of enterobacterial strains in the rectal flora of individual infants. On average, 8.5 different E. coli strains were found per infant, and several biotypes of other enterobacteria. Less than 50% of the infants were colonized with E. coli from their mothers, but strains of maternal origin were four times more likely to persists in the infants' flora than other E. coli strains. Enterobacteria other than E. coli were always of non-maternal origin, and Enterobacter cloacae and Klebsiella pneumoniae biotypes recovered from contaminated feeds were later identified in the infants' rectal flora. An early colonization with klebsiella or enterobacter was significantly associated with diarrhoea during the neonatal period, although these bacteria were not likely to be the cause of the disease. The results suggest that poor hygienic conditions result in an unstable and diverse enterobacterial flora, which may influence infant health.  (+info)

In vitro activities of cephalosporins and quinolones against Escherichia coli strains isolated from diarrheic dairy calves. (3/6219)

The in vitro activities of several cephalosporins and quinolones against 195 strains of Escherichia coli isolated from diary calves affected by neonatal diarrhea were determined. One hundred thirty-seven of these strains produced one or more potential virulence factors (F5, F41, F17, cytotoxic necrotizing factor, verotoxin, and the eae gene), but the remaining 58 strains did not produce any of these factors. From 11 to 18% of the E. coli strains were resistant to cephalothin, nalidixic acid, enoxacin, and enrofloxacin. However, cefuroxime, cefotaxime, and cefquinome were highly effective against the E. coli isolates tested. Some significant differences (P < 0.05) in resistance to quinolones between the strains producing potential virulence factors and nonfimbriated, nontoxigenic, eae-negative strains were found. Thus, eae-positive, necrotoxigenic, and verotoxigenic (except for nalidixic acid) E. coli strains were significantly more sensitive to nalidixic acid, enoxacin, and enrofloxacin than nonfimbriated, nontoxigenic, eae-negative strains. Moreover, eae-positive strains were significantly more sensitive to enoxacin and enrofloxacin than F5-positive strains. Thus, the result of this study suggest that the bovine E. coli strains that produce some potential virulence factors are more sensitive to quinolones than those that do not express these factors.  (+info)

A high-Mr glycoprotein fraction from cow's milk potent in inhibiting replication of human rotavirus in vitro. (4/6219)

Rotavirus is the major cause of infectious diarrhea in infants and young children all over the world. We have found that a high-M(r) glycoprotein fraction from cow's milk is potent in inhibiting replication of human rotaviruses in vitro. Since the activity seems to be unique and specific, this fraction may be useful as a novel agent for treatment or prevention of rotavirus diarrhea.  (+info)

Cryptosporidium, enterocytozoon, and cyclospora infections in pediatric and adult patients with diarrhea in Tanzania. (5/6219)

Cryptosporidiosis, microsporidiosis, and cyclosporiasis were studied in four groups of Tanzanian inpatients: adults with AIDS-associated diarrhea, children with chronic diarrhea (of whom 23 of 59 were positive [+] for human immunodeficiency virus [HIV]), children with acute diarrhea (of whom 15 of 55 were HIV+), and HIV control children without diarrhea. Cryptosporidium was identified in specimens from 6/86 adults, 5/59 children with chronic diarrhea (3/5, HIV+), 7/55 children with acute diarrhea (0/7, HIV+), and 0/20 control children. Among children with acute diarrhea, 7/7 with cryptosporidiosis were malnourished, compared with 10/48 without cryptosporidiosis (P < .01). Enterocytozoon was identified in specimens from 3/86 adults, 2/59 children with chronic diarrhea (1 HIV+), 0/55 children with acute diarrhea, and 4/20 control children. All four controls were underweight (P < .01). Cyclospora was identified in specimens from one adult and one child with acute diarrhea (HIV-). Thus, Cryptosporidium was the most frequent and Cyclospora the least frequent pathogen identified. Cryptosporidium and Enterocytozoon were associated with malnutrition. Asymptomatic fecal shedding of Enterocytozoon in otherwise healthy, HIV children has not been described previously.  (+info)

Rotavirus G-type restriction, persistence, and herd type specificity in Swedish cattle herds. (6/6219)

G-typing of rotavirus strains enables the study of molecular epidemiology and gathering of information to promote disease prevention and control. Rotavirus strains in fecal specimens from neonatal calves in Swedish cattle herds were therefore characterized by using G1 to -4-, G6-, G8-, and G10-specific primers in reverse transcription (RT)-PCR. Fecal samples were collected from one dairy herd (herd A) for 4 consecutive years and from 41 beef and dairy herds (herd B) experiencing calf diarrhea outbreaks. Altogether, 1, 700 samples were analyzed by group A rotavirus enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, and 98 rotavirus-positive specimens were selected for G-typing by RT-PCR. The effect of herd type, time, geographic region, and clinical symptoms on the G-type distribution was evaluated. Altogether (herds A and B), G10 was found in 59 (60. 2%) fecal specimens, G6 was found in 30 (30.6%) specimens, G3 was found in 1 (1.0%) specimen, and G8 was found in 1 (1.0%) specimen. Seven (7.1%) fecal specimens were not typeable. Herd type specificity in the G-type distribution was demonstrated in the herds in herd B. In the 6 beef suckler herds, only G6 was detected, while rotavirus strains from the 35 dairy herds were predominantly (54%) G10. The G-type distribution was restricted in herds A and B. Twenty-nine of 30 strains from herd A were characterized as G10. In the vast majority of herds in herd B, a single G-type was identified. The serotype G10 and the electropherotype persisted over time in herd A. No characteristic G-type variation in the geographic distribution of cattle herds in herd B was obvious. There was no difference in the G-type distributions between the strains from clinically and subclinically rotavirus-infected calves in dairy herd A. The results from this study strongly indicate a pronounced stability in the rotavirus G-type distribution in Swedish cattle herds, which emphasizes the importance of continuous preventive measures for control of neonatal calf diarrhea. A future bovine rotavirus vaccine in Sweden should contain G10 and G6 strains.  (+info)

Phase I study of a weekly schedule of irinotecan, high-dose leucovorin, and infusional fluorouracil as first-line chemotherapy in patients with advanced colorectal cancer. (7/6219)

PURPOSE: To determine the maximum-tolerated dose (MTD) of a weekly schedule of irinotecan (CPT-11), leucovorin (LV), and a 24-hour infusion of fluorouracil (5-FU24h) as first-line chemotherapy in advanced colorectal cancer and to assess preliminary data on the antitumor activity. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-six patients with measurable metastatic colorectal cancer were entered onto this phase I study. In the first six dose levels, fixed doses of CPT-11 (80 mg/m2) and LV (500 mg/m2) in combination with escalated doses of 5-FU24h ranging from 1.8 to 2.6 g/m2 were administered on a weekly-times-four (dose levels 1 to 4) or weekly-times-six (dose levels 5 to 6) schedule. The dose of CPT-11 was then increased to 100 mg/m2 (dose level 7). RESULTS: Seventy-nine cycles of 5-FU24h/LV with CPT-11 were administered in an outpatient setting. No dose-limiting toxicities were observed during the first cycle at dose levels 1 to 6, but diarrhea of grade 4 (National Cancer Institute common toxicity criteria) was observed in three patients after multiple treatment cycles. Other nonhematologic and hematologic side effects, specifically alopecia and neutropenia, did not exceed grade 2. With the escalation of CPT-11 to 100 mg/m2 (dose level 7), diarrhea of grade 3 or higher was observed in four of six patients during the first cycle; thus, the MTD was achieved. Sixteen of 25 response-assessable patients (64%; 95% confidence interval, 45% to 83%) achieved an objective response. CONCLUSION: The recommended doses for further studies are CPT-11 80 mg/m2, LV 500 mg/m2, and 5-FU24h 2.6 g/m2 given on a weekly-times-six schedule followed by a 1-week rest period. The addition of CPT-11 to 5-FU24h/LV seems to improve the therapeutic efficacy in terms of tumor response with manageable toxicity.  (+info)

Organization of biogenesis genes for aggregative adherence fimbria II defines a virulence gene cluster in enteroaggregative Escherichia coli. (8/6219)

Several virulence-related genes have been described for prototype enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) strain 042, which has been shown to cause diarrhea in human volunteers. Among these factors are the enterotoxins Pet and EAST and the fimbrial antigen aggregative adherence fimbria II (AAF/II), all of which are encoded on the 65-MDa virulence plasmid pAA2. Using nucleotide sequence analysis and insertional mutagenesis, we have found that the genes required for the expression of each of these factors, as well as the transcriptional activator of fimbrial expression AggR, map to a distinct cluster on the pAA2 plasmid map. The cluster is 23 kb in length and includes two regions required for expression of the AAF/II fimbria. These fimbrial biogenesis genes feature a unique organization in which the chaperone, subunit, and transcriptional activator lie in one cluster, whereas the second, unlinked cluster comprises a silent chaperone gene, usher, and invasin reminiscent of Dr family fimbrial clusters. This plasmid-borne virulence locus may represent an important set of virulence determinants in EAEC strains.  (+info)

Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) is an increasingly recognized enteric pathogen. It is a cause of both acute and persistent diarrhoea among children, adults and HIV-infected persons, in both developing and developed countries. In challenge studies, EAEC has caused diarrhoeal illness with the ingestion of 1010 c.f.u. Outbreaks of diarrhoeal illness due to EAEC have been reported, and linked to the ingestion of contaminated food. Diarrhoeal illness due to EAEC is the result of a complex pathogen-host interaction. Some infections due to EAEC result in diarrhoeal illness and elicit an inflammatory response, whereas other infections do not result in a symptomatic infection. Many putative virulence genes and EAEC strains that produce biofilm have been identified; however, the clinical significance of these genes and of biofilm production has yet to be defined. A −251 AA single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in the interleukin (IL)-8 promoter region is reported to increase host susceptibility to EAEC
If diarrhea continues for more than 4 weeks, it is considered as chronic diarrhea. Chronic diarrhea requires evaluation to rule out underlying pathology. Compared to causes of acute diarrhea, most of the causes of chronic diarrhea are noninfectious.. Principle of treatment of chronic diarrhea: Treatment of chronic diarrhea depends on the specific cause of diarrhea and it is directed towards the cause of diarrhea, which may be curative, suppressive, or empirical. If the cause can be removed or eradicated, the treatment of chronic diarrhea is curative as with resection of a colorectal cancer, antibiotic administration for Whipples disease, or discontinuation of a drug (if any drug is the cause of chronic diarrhea).. For many chronic conditions, diarrhea can be controlled by suppression of the underlying mechanism which is causing the chronic diarrhea. Examples are elimination of dietary lactose for lactase deficiency or gluten (gluten free diet) for celiac sprue, use of glucocorticoids or other ...

Unfortunately, no parent can escape the peril of infant diarrhea. Infectious diarrhea is one of the most common problems in childhood. Each year in the United States, 37 million cases of childhood diarrhea occur in children ages 5 years and younger. On average, every child experiences two bouts of diarrhea a year. Annually in the United States, infant diarrhea results in almost 4 million doctors office visits, over 200,000 hospital admissions, and several hundreds of preventable deaths (1). Diarrhea can be caused by a variety of microbes, or parasites, but most often it is caused by viruses. Among all microbes causing diarrhea in infants and children, rotavirus frequently produces more severe diarrhea. Approximately 10% of all cases of childhood diarrhea are caused by a rotavirus; however, among children with severe diarrhea, rotavirus is found in almost 50% of cases (2). Worldwide, rotavirus causes more than 125 million cases of diarrhea annually in children younger than 5 years of age. In the ...

Acute diarrhea is an unpleasant digestive disorder that nearly everyone experiences at one time or another. In fact, its estimated that most Americans can expect to have diarrhea about four times every year.. The loose-stool consistency that characterizes diarrhea usually lasts a few days at most. Diarrhea often means more-frequent trips to the toilet and a greater volume of stool. Some common causes of loose, watery stools and abdominal cramps are infections from viruses, bacteria or parasites. Other causes include medications - particularly antibiotics - and artificial sweeteners.. Chronic diarrhea lasts much longer than does acute diarrhea, generally longer than four weeks. It can be a sign of a serious disorder, such as inflammatory bowel disease, or it may be due to a less serious condition, such as irritable bowel syndrome. Chronic or recurrent diarrhea may signal poor absorption of nutrients (malabsorption).. Diarrhea may cause a loss of significant amounts of water and salts. Most cases ...
Background: Spatial analysis has been vital in mapping the spread of diseases and assisting in policy making. Targeting diarrhea transmission hotspots is one of the potential strategies for reducing diarrhea cases. This study aimed to examine the spatial-temporal variations and to identify the modifiable determinants of diarrhea while controlling for the spatial dependence in the data. Methods: An ecological study on diarrhea data from DLHS-3 and NFHS- 4 in India. Morans I and LISA were used to detect the spatial clustering of diarrhea cases and to test for clustering in the data. Spatial regression was used to identify the modifiable factors associated with the prevalence of diarrhea. The study comprised of the prevalence of diarrhea among the children below the age of five years (U-5 s) across different states in India. The determinants of diarrhea were obtained using spatial lag models. The software used were GeoDa 1.6.6 and QGIS 2.0. Results: The presence of spatial autocorrelation in ...
The symptoms of travelers diarrhea are characterized by watery stool, fever with high temperatures, vomiting and abdominal pain. Generally, the symptoms of travelers mild diarrhea will disappear by itself within 3 - 4 days.. Diarrhea itself is defined as loose or watery stools (feces) frequently that usually happened at least three or four times in 24 hours.. How long it last travelers diarrhea? Diarrhea in travelers last up to 3 to 4 days with loose stool symptoms as well as vomiting and sometimes fever. In a few cases travelers diarrhea lasts longer until reaching 3 months.. ...
Chronic diarrhea has been described in some reports as a symptom of HCC in patients with liver disease (9-11). The reports indicate a prevalence varying from 3.7% to 50% in the largest case series. The mechanism of chronic diarrhea associated with HCC is not completely known, and existing reports have not been designed to determine the mechanism of diarrhea.. In a series of 211 patients with HCC, Lai et al. (10) reported chronic diarrhea in 21%. Diarrhea was attributed to the liver tumor because stool cultures were negative for infectious pathogens. Bruix et al. (11) observed that patients with HCC and diarrhea had higher bilirubin and alkaline phosphatase levels and worse hepatic function than those with HCC without diarrhea. Tumor size, vascular invasion, and degree of tumor differentiation were not related to chronic diarrhea.. A few case reports have clearly demonstrated that one of the causes of chronic diarrhea associated with HCC is paraneoplastic syndrome (12-14). The production of ...
Chronic diarrhea is a common ailment that some seniors suffer with and the elderly may also be more prone to acute diarrhea than younger adults. However, some elderly people are more prone to the other extreme of bowel habit - constipation. When diarrhea does arise, it has to be established whether it is acute or chronic. The causes of both acute and chronic diarrhea can differ significantly and some of these causes may not be easily treated.. Acute diarrhea refers to diarrhea that arises suddenly, is intense but for a short period of time and resolves thereafter. It may require medical treatment or resolve on its own without ay treatment. Chronic diarrhea persists for long periods of time. Usually this is defined as diarrhea that persist for more than 4 weeks. However, recurrent diarrhea (diarrhea that comes and goes) may also be considered as chronic.. Most of the time acute diarrhea is due to infections and certain foods. This is not uncommon to any age group but the elderly may be prone to ...
Diarrhea is a chapter in the book, Gastroenterology, containing the following 11 pages: Diarrhea in HIV, Acute Diarrhea, Chronic Diarrhea, Chronic Fatty Diarrhea, Chronic Inflammatory Diarrhea, Chronic Watery Diarrhea, Infectious Diarrhea Causes, Food-borne Diarrheal Infection, Travelers Diarrhea, Travelers Diarrhea Management, Waterborne Illness.
Infectious diarrhea is an important public health problem worldwide. Research has provided new insights into the mechanisms of diarrhea caused by various pathogens that are classified as noninflammatory, inflammatory or invasive. These three groups of organisms cause two diarrheal syndromes-noninflammatory diarrhea and inflammatory diarrhea. The noninflammatory diarrheas are caused by enterotoxin-producing organisms such as Vibrio cholerae and enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli, or by viruses that adhere to the mucosa and disrupt the absorptive and/or secretory processes of the enterocyte without causing acute inflammation or mucosal destruction. Inflammatory diarrhea is caused by two groups of organisms-cytotoxin-producing, noninvasive bacteria (e.g. enteroaggregative Escherichia coli, enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli and Clostridium difficile), or by invasive organisms (e.g. Salmonella spp., Shigella spp., Campylobacter spp., Entamoeba histolytica). The cytotoxin-producing organisms adhere to the

Pneumonia and diarrhea are among the top causes of childhood deaths around the world, particularly among the poor, said a report out Friday by the UN Childrens Fund. UNICEF said that while these two diseases kill more than two million children each year, making up 29 percent of child deaths under age five worldwide, some simple interventions could save lots of lives in the coming years. The report urges the 75 countries with the highest mortality rates to aim to treat poor children with diarrhea and pneumonia the same way they do those from the top 20 percent of households, a so-called equity approach. Key interventions include vaccinating against the major causes of pneumonia and diarrhea, encouraging infant breastfeeding, improving access to clean water and sanitation, offering antibiotics for pneumonia and rehydration solutions for diarrhea. Modeled estimates suggest that by 2015 more than two million child deaths due to pneumonia and diarrhea could be averted across the 75 countries with the
Enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) is associated with diarrhoea among travellers to developing countries. EAEC virulence properties predisposing to illness are not clear. Sixty-four EAEC strains identified by a HEp-2 cell assay and isolated from faecal samples from US and European travellers to developing countries were studied for the prevalence of 11 putative virulence genes by PCR: 49 EAEC strains from adults with acute diarrhoea and 15 EAEC strains from adults without diarrhoea. E. coli strains from the stools of healthy travellers to the same region were used as controls. EAEC carrying aggR, aap, astA and set1A were identified individually more often in the stools of subjects with diarrhoea compared with those without diarrhoea (P|0.05). EAEC isolates with two or three of these genes were associated with diarrhoea compared with EAEC isolates without the presence of these genes (P|0.05). Subjects with diarrhoea who shed EAEC isolates positive for these genes were more likely than subjects
A total of 383 children aged less than 5 years suffering from acute watery diarrhoea or dysentery were studied in hospital to determine the rate of persistent diarrhoea. Altogether 335 (87.5%) recovered within 13 days. Only in 48 (12.5%) did the diarrhoea continue for 14 days or more, and they were considered as having persistent diarrhoea. Children aged between 7 and 18 months had a significantly increased incidence of persistent diarrhoea. Children suffering from grade II-IV malnutrition constituted the majority (70.8%) of those with persistent diarrhoea. Higher rates of isolation of Shigella flexneri, Shigella dysenteriae 1, and Salmonella typhimurium were observed among patients with persistent diarrhoea than in those with diarrhoea of shorter duration. No positive correlations were observed between the clinical severity of disease at hospital admission and measles. Breast fed babies were not prone to persistent diarrhoea.. ...

HudsonAlpha researcher part of international team. When the intestines are not able to properly process our diet, a variety of disorders can develop, with chronic diarrhea as a common symptom. Chronic diarrhea can also be inherited, most commonly through conditions with genetic components such as irritable bowel syndrome. Researchers in Norway, India, and at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology have identified one heritable DNA mutation that leads to chronic diarrhea and bowel inflammation.. Shawn Levy, Ph.D., faculty investigator at HudsonAlpha said, Based on the effects seen from this one mutation, we are hopeful that the work will aid in understanding of much more common diseases like Crohns and irritable bowel syndrome, which also have inflammation and diarrhea as symptoms.. The Norwegian family studied for the paper published today in The New England Journal of Medicine has 32 living members with a number of related inflammatory bowel conditions. Such a large family allowed ...
Neonatal pigs were also inoculated with isogenic strains 234M (STaP+) and 234M pRAS1 (STaP+ and STb+) to determine if both toxins together would have a greater effect in inoculated neonatal pigs than either toxin alone. The results in Table 1 show that there was no difference in the severity of diarrhea or weight loss caused by 234M, with or without the cloned STb gene.. We found that the cloned STb gene did not significantly contribute to diarrhea caused by adherent E. coli strains in neonatal pigs. There was no difference in the incidence or severity of diarrhea in piglets inoculated with isogenic strains with STb and that in piglets inoculated with isogenic strains without STb. Strain 226M pRAS1 (STb+) caused very mild diarrhea with weight loss that was similar to that caused by the nontoxigenic parent strain 226M or by 226M containing the pBR322 vector alone (,10% weight loss). We have previously shown that, in some pigs, nontoxigenic strain 226M caused mild diarrhea with minimal weight loss ...
Dog diarrhea. Of course the main thing that pet parents must figure out is the cause of the dogs diarrhea in the first place. The second is to provide a supplement or medication to ease the issue. Dogs with acute diarrhea can safely be treated at home. But if the dog has diarrhea these contractions can be over enthusiastic and push food through too quickly in the form of diarrhea. If your dog has severe bloody diarrhea or is showing more generalized signs of illness such as weakness fever vomiting abdominal pain or loss of appetite or if dehydration accompanies the diarrhea the cause may be. If your dog has diarrhea one time and otherwise acts completely normal you can probably continue with its normal routine and feeding. If your dog has diarrhoea without blood or mucus but is otherwise happy well and behaving normally you could try to settle them at home. Diarrhea is a common canine affliction and it varies in frequency duration and intensity from dog to dog. If the diarrhea appears to be the ...
Travelers diarrhea is a digestive tract disorder that commonly causes loose stools and abdominal cramps. Its caused by eating contaminated food or drinking contaminated water. Fortunately, travelers diarrhea usually isnt serious - its just unpleasant.
Introduction Chronic diarrhea of infancy is a heterogeneous syndrome that includes several diseases with different etiologies. The aim of this study was investigating chronic diarrhea, its etiologies, clinical features and outcomes in infancy.Materials and Methods Retrospective study investigating infants hospitalized in the gastroenterology department of Tehran tertiary care center.The main demographic data, etiology, characteristics of diarrhea, and outcome were evaluated. Data were analyzed by SPSS software,version 16.Results In this study, 63/9% of cases were female and 36/1% were male. 24 cases (66/7%) had osmotic diarrhea and 11 (30/6%) had secretory diarrhea. In this study there was no significant statistical correlation between type of diarrhea and sex, gestational Age, severity of dehydration, birth weight and nutrition. The majority of patients with osmotic (58/3%) and secretory diarrhea (63/6%), had weight percentile below 3%, which showed a significant statistical difference (p value|0.03).
Diarrhea is an increase in the looseness (usually runny or watery) and frequency of bowel movements per day. Diarrhea that lasts less than one week is considered to be acute diarrhea, while diarrhea lasting longer than four weeks is called chronic diarrhea. Most acute cases of diarrhea are caused by gastrointestinal (GI) infections and clear up within a few days. Children under age 3 have an average of 1-3 episodes of acute diarrhea per year. If your child is experiencing diarrhea that lasts longer than 1-2 weeks, he may need diagnostic testing to check for any underlying medical conditions. ...

Despite the abundance of reports on diarrheal disease in children under five years of age, this study is one of the few to include the identification of all six DEC pathotypes in all age individuals. Our study has shed light on the little-known issue of DEC infections in adult patients attending health centers. Adults rarely visit a health care when they have diarrhea, unless they perceive the diarrhea as being serious. We demonstrated that DEC pathotypes were commonly found in diarrheagenic adults (40%). EAEC (23%) and DAEC (13%) were the most prevalent DEC pathotypes in both diarrheal groups; whereas aEPEC strains were recovered more frequently from diarrheagenic children (6%) than from diarrheagenic adults (1%). ETEC accounted for 1.5% of DEC, and we did not find EIEC and EHEC strains, indicating their limited role in childhood diarrhea in Brazil. Our findings are in agreement with a previous study conducted in rural communities in the city of São Mateus (same geographical region of the ...
If the diarrhea has been going on for that long, I would consider having a sample cultured. Giardia(sp?), a waterborne parasite, causes diarrhea. It is picked up from contaminated water supplies. Unwashed lettuce could carry it. There are other parasites that can cause diarrhea too. Flagyl is the standard treatment for Giardia. (I believe it is an antibiotic.) We will often give Flagyl for extreme diarrhea without doing a culture, mostly because we can´t afford the time delay. And unfortunately, cultures can be hit and miss with Giardia, as I remember it. (I think it could take a few samples to find the parasite, not unlike diagnosis of mites taking several skin scrapings). It was a long time ago that we had our giardia outbreak, so I´m going by memory here ...

Diarrhea, also spelled diarrhoea, is the condition of having at least three loose or liquid bowel movements each day. It often lasts for a few days and can result in dehydration due to fluid loss. Signs of dehydration often begin with loss of the normal stretchiness of the skin and irritable behaviour. This can progress to decreased urination, loss of skin color, a fast heart rate, and a decrease in responsiveness as it becomes more severe. Loose but non-watery stools in babies who are exclusively breastfed, however, are normal. The most common cause is an infection of the intestines due to either a virus, bacteria, or parasite - a condition also known as gastroenteritis. These infections are often acquired from food or water that has been contaminated by feces, or directly from another person who is infected. The three types of diarrhea are: short duration watery diarrhea, short duration bloody diarrhea, and persistent diarrhea (lasting more than two weeks). The short duration watery diarrhea ...
Travelers diarrhea (TD) is a stomach and intestinal infection. TD is defined as the passage of unformed stool (one or more by some definitions, three or more by others) while traveling.[2][3] It may be accompanied by abdominal cramps, nausea, fever, and bloating.[3] Occasionally bloody diarrhea may occur.[5] Most travelers recover within four days with little or no treatment.[3] About 10% of people may have symptoms for a week.[3] Bacteria are responsible for more than half of cases.[3] The bacteria enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) are typically the most common except in Southeast Asia, where Campylobacter is more prominent.[2][3] About 10% to 20% of cases are due to norovirus.[3] Protozoa such as Giardia may cause longer term disease.[3] The risk is greatest in the first two weeks of travel and among young adults.[2] People affected are more often from the developed world.[2] Recommendations for prevention include eating only properly cleaned and cooked food, drinking bottled water, and ...
Children can have acute and chronic forms of diarrhea. Causes include bacteria, viruses, parasites, medications, functional bowel disorders, and food sensitivities. Infection with the rotavirus is the most common cause of acute childhood diarrhea. Rotavirus diarrhea usually resolves in 3 to 9 days. Children who are 6 to 32 weeks old can be vaccinated against the virus with a vaccine called Rotateq.. If your child has diarrhea, do not hesitate to call the doctor for advice. Diarrhea is especially dangerous in newborns and infants, leading to dehydration in just a day or two. A child can die from dehydration within a few days. The main treatment for diarrhea in children is rehydration to replace lost fluid quickly.. Take your child to the doctor if there is no improvement after 24 hours or if any of the following symptoms appear:. ...
In North America, it is commonly taught that enteric infections caused by nontyphoidal salmonella do not require antibiotic treatment because these infections are usually self-limited. Furthermore, many antibiotics prolong the period during which salmonella are carried in the gastrointestinal tract. In other parts of the world, various strategies are used to manage salmonella enteritis on the basis of the belief that intervention has potential benefit and causes little harm. The diagnosis of salmonellosis is seldom known when the decision to treat diarrhea is made. Because most patients with suspected bacterial diarrhea do slightly better with antimicrobial agents than with placebo (1), it is unclear whether treatment should be stopped or continued if salmonella is cultured from the stool. As shown by this study, the prospect of performing a meta-analysis to examine the effect of treatment for enteric salmonellosis is overwhelming because of the heterogeneous nature of the patients, treatments, ...
A massive outbreak of gastrointestinal illness occurred in Tajimi city, Gifu prefecture, in June of 1993 in which 2,697 children in elementary and junior high schools developed severe diarrhea. Stool specimens from 30 children with severe protracted diarrhea were studied. Twenty-seven strains of enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAggEC) isolated from 12 of 30 patients all belonged to the same serotype, O untypeable (OUT):H10, and showed the same biochemical characteristics and antibiotic susceptibility pattern. These strains were negative for the virulence factors of the four standard categories of diarrheagenic E. coli (enterotoxigenic, enteropathogenic, enteroinvasive, and enterohemorrhagic). However, the isolates showed an aggregative pattern of adherence to HEp-2 cells and had a 60-MDa plasmid and an astA gene, which encodes heat-stable enterotoxin-1 production. These data suggested that the EAggEC serotype OUT:H10 was associated with this massive outbreak of gastrointestinal ...
Infectious diarrhoea ranks among the leading causes of morbidity worldwide. Although most acute diarrhoeal episodes are self-limiting, the diagnosis and treatment of persistent diarrhoea (≥2 weeks) are cumbersome and require laboratory identification of the causative pathogen. Stool-based PCR assays have greatly improved the previously disappointing pathogen detection rates in high-income countries, but there is a paucity of quality data from tropical settings. We performed a case-control study to elucidate the spectrum of intestinal pathogens in patients with persistent diarrhoea and asymptomatic controls in southern Côte dIvoire. Stool samples from 68 patients and 68 controls were obtained and subjected to molecular multiplex testing with the Luminex(®) Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel (GPP), microscopy and rapid antigen detection tests for the diagnosis of diarrhoeagenic pathogens. Overall, 20 different bacteria, parasites and viruses were detected by the suite of diagnostic methods ...

Some people develop diarrhea after stomach surgery or removal of the gallbladder. The reason may be a change in how quickly food moves through the digestive system after stomach surgery or an increase in bile in the colon that can occur after gallbladder surgery.. In many cases, the cause of diarrhea cannot be found. As long as diarrhea goes away on its own, an extensive search for the cause is not usually necessary.. People who visit foreign countries are at risk for travelers diarrhea, which is caused by eating food or drinking water contaminated with bacteria, viruses, or, sometimes, parasites. Travelers diarrhea is a particular problem for people visiting developing countries. Visitors to the United States, Canada, most European countries, Japan, Australia, and New Zealand do not face much risk for travelers diarrhea.. ...
Diarrhea is a common ailment in cats, indicated by frequent, loose bowel movements. It is not a disease, rather a symptom of minor to severe illnesses. Diarrhea is caused by food passing too quickly through the digestive tract, not allowing it to completely digest and preventing the body from absorbing any fluid the food contained. Because of this lack of absorption, it is very easy for cats with diarrhea to become dehydrated. The cause of diarrhea in felines ranges from a bacterial infection or parasite, to a systemic illness or cancer; however, a sporadic case could be caused by something as simple as a change in diet. The condition can be acute or chronic, where acute diarrhea occurs suddenly and for a short period of time, and chronic diarrhea is a continuing ailment over a period of a few weeks. If you witness your cat having diarrhea, it is important to monitor the issue, and schedule a veterinary appointment if symptoms last longer than a couple of days. Symptoms of feline diarrhea ...
Diarrhea is most commonly caused by viral infections, parasites or bacterial toxins. In sanitary living conditions where there is ample food and a supply of clean water, an otherwise healthy patient usually recovers from viral infections in a few days. However, for ill or malnourished individuals diarrhea can lead to severe dehydration and can become life-threatening without treatment. Diarrhea can also be a symptom of more serious diseases, such as dysentery, cholera, or botulism, and can also be indicative of a chronic syndrome such as Crohns disease or severe mushroom poisoning syndromes. Though appendicitis patients do not generally have violent diarrhea, it is a common symptom of a ruptured appendix. It is also an effect of severe radiation sickness. Diarrhea can also be caused by dairy intake in those who are lactose intolerant. Symptomatic treatment for diarrhea involves the patient consuming adequate amounts of water to replace that loss, preferably mixed with electrolytes to provide ...
Antibiotic may cause diarrhea in children as well as in adults. Antibiotic-associated diarrhea can be prevented using several precautions.
Diagnosing the underlying cause of chronic diarrhea can be challenging because diarrhea is a symptom that is associated with many different conditions.5. Your doctor will likely start by asking you questions about how long you have had diarrhea and how often you have episodes of diarrhea. You may also be asked about any recent travel to help determine if you may have picked up a parasite (or another infection-causing bug) somewhere. Then your doctor will probably do a physical exam and order blood testing. Stool testing may be ordered as well.5. The results of these tests will help your doctor determine if additional testing is needed to learn what could be causing your chronic diarrhea.5. ...

Evidence suggests that dietary vitamin D may be carried by lipoprotein particles into cells of the artery wall and atherosclerotic plaque, where it may be converted to active form by monocyte-macrophages.[13][18][19] This raises questions regarding the effects of vitamin D intake on atherosclerotic calcification and cardiovascular risk as it may be causing vascular calcification.[20] Calcifediol is implicated in the etiology of atherosclerosis, especially in non-Caucasians.[21][22] The levels of the active form of vitamin D, calcitriol, are inversely correlated with coronary calcification.[23] Moreover, the active vitamin D analog, alfacalcidol, seems to protect patients from developing vascular calcification.[24][25] Serum vitamin D has been found to correlate with calcified atherosclerotic plaque in African Americans as they have higher active serum vitamin D levels compared to Euro-Americans.[22][26][27][28] Higher levels of calcidiol positively correlate with aorta and carotid calcified ...

... is a synthetic form of the isolated major active metabolite of venlafaxine, and is categorized as a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). When most normal metabolizers take venlafaxine, approximately 70% of the dose is metabolized into desvenlafaxine, so the effects of the two drugs are expected to be very similar.[5] It works by blocking the "reuptake" transporters for key neurotransmitters affecting mood, thereby leaving more active neurotransmitters in the synapse. The neurotransmitters affected are serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline). It is approximately 10 times more potent at inhibiting serotonin uptake than norepinephrine uptake.[6]. ...

Alprostadil is sold in the United States as urethral suppositories and in injectable form. The suppositories are sold under the brand name Muse.[6] The injectable forms are Edex[7] and Caverject.[8] Muse delivers alprostadil as a penile suppository, inserted into the urethra, at least ten minutes before the erection is needed. Caverject and Edex are similarly fast-acting, but instead are injected by syringe directly into the corpus cavernosum of the penis. Alprostadil is also available as a generic. The major cost is that it must be mixed by a compounding pharmacy and supplies may be difficult to obtain. The different formulations, including Bimix and Trimix, may include papaverine and/or phentolamine. A typical mix might be 30 mg of papaverine, 2 mg of phentolamine, and 20 μg alprostadil. As a generic, it is much less expensive than the packaged injectables. It is premixed and must be kept refrigerated and the user must load a syringe with the quantity needed. Most recently, the compound has ...
Infection is acquired most commonly from eggs in the feces of another infected individual, which are transferred in food, by contamination. Eggs hatch in the duodenum, releasing oncospheres, which penetrate the mucosa and come to lie in lymph channels of the villi. An oncosphere develops into a cysticercoid which has a tail and a well-formed scolex. It is made of longitudinal fibers and is spade-shaped with the rest of the worm still inside the cyst. In five to six days, cysticercoids emerge into the lumen of the small intestine, where they attach and mature. The direct lifecycle is doubtless a recent modification of the ancestral two-host lifecycle found in other species of hymenolepidids, because cysticercoids of H. nana can still develop normally within larval fleas and beetles. One reason for facultative nature of the lifecycle is that H. nana cysticercoids can develop at higher temperatures than can those of the other hymenolepidids. Direct contaminative infection by eggs is probably the ...
In March 2010 a Phase III trial in NSCLC patients called Lux-Lung 5 began with this drug.[13] Fall 2010 interim results suggested the drug extended progression-free survival threefold compared to placebo, but did not extend overall survival.[14] In May 2012, the Phase IIb/III trial Lux-Lung 1 came to the same conclusion.[15] In January 2015 a Phase III trial in people with NSCLC suggested the drug extended life expectancy in stage IV NSCLC adenocarcinoma with EGFR Mutation type del 19-positive tumors, compared to cisplatin-based chemotherapy by a year (33 months vs. 21 months).[16] It also shows strong activity against exon 18 mutations (particularly G719) and is currently the preferred EGFR-TKI therapy for exon 18 mutations (particularly G719x).[17][verification needed] Phase II results for breast cancer that over-expresses the protein human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (Her2-positive breast cancer) were described as promising by the authors, with 19 of 41 patients achieving benefit from ...
