  • Legionella
  • Legionella pneumophila Causes a severe form of pneumonia with a relatively high mortality rate, known as legionellosis or Legionnaires' disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • not to be confused with Actinomyces, which is a non-acid-fast genera of Actinomycetes Nocardia Rhodococcus Gordonia (Actinomycete) Tsukamurella Dietzia Head of sperm Bacterial spores, see Endospore Legionella micdadei Certain cellular inclusions e.g. (wikipedia.org)
  • strains
  • Omadacycline has activity against bacterial strains expressing the two main forms of tetracycline resistance (efflux and ribosomal protection). (wikipedia.org)
  • in 1982 to accommodate bacterial strains previously assigned to the genus Corynebacterium variously (and controversially) as C. pyogenes hominis and then C. haemolyticum, thenceforth to be known as Arcanobacterium haemolyticum. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, while the majority of S. aureus strains are coagulase-positive, some may be atypical in that they do not produce coagulase. (wikipedia.org)
  • acute bacterial
  • In June 2013, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designated the intravenous and oral formulations of omadacycline as a qualified infectious disease product in the treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections and community-acquired bacterial pneumonia. (wikipedia.org)
  • A 650 patient phase 3 registration study comparing omadacycline to linezolid for the treatment of acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections began in June 2015. (wikipedia.org)
  • In August 2016, a second phase 3 study of omadacycline was initiated in patients with acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections, comparing the efficacy and safety of once-daily, oral omadacycline to that of twice-daily, oral linezolid. (wikipedia.org)
  • tissues
  • As with various species of a microbiota (including their cousins in the genera Corynebacterium and Trueperella), they usually are not pathogenic but can occasionally opportunistically capitalize on atypical access to tissues (via wounds) or weakened host defenses. (wikipedia.org)
  • This blockage leads to increased pressures in the appendix, decreased blood flow to the tissues of the appendix, and bacterial growth inside the appendix causing inflammation. (wikipedia.org)
  • normally
  • HUS can be divided into two main categories: Shiga-toxin-associated HUS (STx-HUS), which normally presents with diarrhea, and atypical HUS. (wikipedia.org)
  • stain
  • This is because the thick peptidoglycan layer in the bacterial cell wall retains the stain after it is washed away from the rest of the sample, in the decolorization stage of the test. (wikipedia.org)
  • cause
  • Bacterial toxins are the primary cause of one category of thrombotic microangiopathy known as HUS or hemolytic uremic syndrome. (wikipedia.org)
  • fungus
  • The term mycoplasma, from the Greek μυκής, mykes (fungus) and πλάσμα, plasma (formed), was first used by Albert Bernhard Frank in 1889 to describe an altered state of plant cell cytoplasm resulting from infiltration by fungus-like microorganisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • macroscopic
  • Inthe German pathologist Virchow recognized that if this dynamic balance were altered by venous stasis or turbulence, abnormal coagulability, or vessel wall injuries, then microthrombi could propagate to form macroscopic thrombi. (wassergefluester.de)
  • absence
  • Recently, genetic microbiome studies have demonstrated that the occurrence of BV represents an absence of acid forming morphotypes of lactobacillus [ 5 ]. (hindawi.com)
  • However, although Gram staining response is an empirical criterion, its basis lies in the marked differences in the ultrastructure and chemical composition of the bacterial cell wall, marked by the absence or presence of an outer lipid membrane. (wikipedia.org)
  • include
  • Other conditions with TMA include atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome, disseminated intravascular coagulation, scleroderma renal crisis, malignant hypertension, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome, and drug toxicities, e.g. calcineurin inhibitor toxicity. (wikipedia.org)
  • common
  • In North America, where the "atypical" forms of community-acquired pneumonia are becoming more common, clarithromycin, azithromycin, or fluoroquinolones as single therapy have displaced the amoxicillin as first-line therapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • In some cats, this is apparently a form of seizure activity, based on response to treatment with phenobarbital. (pets.ca)
  • The American Urological Association recommends levofloxacin as a first-line treatment to prevent bacterial prostatitis when the prostate is biopsied. (wikipedia.org)
  • A 750 patient phase 3 study comparing omadacycline to moxifloxacin for the treatment of community-acquired bacterial pneumonia began in November 2015. (wikipedia.org)
  • cells
  • Acid-fastness is a physical property of certain bacterial and eukaryotic cells, as well as some sub-cellular structures, specifically their resistance to decolorization by acids during laboratory staining procedures. (wikipedia.org)
  • found
  • In addition, a number of bacterial taxa (including Negativicutes, Fusobacteria, Synergistetes, and Elusimicrobia) that are either part of the phylum Firmicutes or branches in its proximity are also found to possess a diderm cell structure. (wikipedia.org)
  • chains
  • This is as opposed to streptococci, which divide along one axis, so form chains (strep meaning twisted or pliant). (wikipedia.org)
