  • pylori
  • Patients with MALT lymphoma should also be tested and treated for H. pylori since eradication of this infection can induce remission in many patients when the tumor is limited to the stomach. (wikipedia.org)
  • As culture with antibiotic sensitivities is not routinely performed when a H. pylori infection is diagnosed, it is generally recommended that different antibiotics be given at higher doses for 14 days. (wikipedia.org)
  • As a result, PUD that is associated with H. pylori is currently treated with antibiotics used to eradicate the infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • among other effects, it is now known that acid suppression alters the stomach milieu to make it less amenable to H. pylori infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • Advances in molecular biology in the late 20th century led to the sequencing of the H. pylori genome, resulting in a better understanding of virulence factors responsible for its colonization and infection, on the DNA level. (wikipedia.org)
  • H. pylori infection-this bacterial infection can erode the wall of the stomach or duodenum, leading to a structural change in the stomach wall and bleeding in the stool. (wikipedia.org)
  • bacterium
  • Campylobacter is a helical-shaped, nonspore-forming, Gram-negative, microaerophilic, nonfermenting bacterium forming motile rods with a single polar flagellum, which are also oxidase-positive and grow optimally at 37 to 42 °C. When exposed to atmospheric oxygen, C. jejuni is able to change into a coccal form. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cholera is a waterborne infection caused by the bacterium Vibrio chloerae, and is transmitted via food or water that is contaminated with fecal matter. (wikipedia.org)
  • inflammatory
  • These infections can become quite serious creating a systemic inflammatory response resulting in massive vasodilation, shock, and death. (wikipedia.org)
  • These broad categories include cancerous processes or abnormal structure of bowel wall, inflammatory disease, colitis caused by infection or medications and vascular compromise. (wikipedia.org)
  • complications
  • While many people are able to ride out these relatively mild infections, young children, the elderly and those with suppressed immune systems are at a greater risk for complications and even death. (adelsimpsonhealth.com)
  • broilers
  • Factors that appeared to decrease the risk of Campylobacter infection in broilers in southern Spain were the existence of an entrance room to access the poultry house and drinking water treatment, according to a research from the University of Cordoba. (thepoultrysite.com)
  • parasites
  • Most of these conditions are infections caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites that are normally controlled by the elements of the immune system that HIV damages. (blogspot.com)
  • In a recent meta-analysis of the data, Patterson and Ruckstahl (2013) confirmed that "parasite intensity and prevalence both increased positively with group size…" with the caveat of mobile parasites, which displayed a negative correlation between group size and infection intensity. (wikipedia.org)
  • respiratory
  • Tuberculosis (TB) is unique among infections associated with HIV because it is transmissible to immunocompetent people via the respiratory route, is easily treatable once identified, may occur in early-stage HIV disease, and is preventable with drug therapy. (blogspot.com)
  • Bacteremia can lead to localized infections of the meninges in the brain, the respiratory pleural spaces or lungs, joints, the pericardial sac around the heart, or the peritoneum. (wikipedia.org)
  • Initially, this particular lactoperoxidase-catalyzed compound was originally discovered while viewing the specific environment of cystic fibrosis patients' weakened respiratory immune system against bacterial infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • Symptoms of cystic fibrosis include an inability to secrete sufficient quantities of SCN− which results in a shortage of necessary hypothiocyanite, resulting in increasing mucous viscosity, inflammation and bacterial infection in the respiratory tract. (wikipedia.org)
  • Haemophilus
  • The following AST mediums are recommended for use with Etest: Aerobes: Mueller Hinton agar such as MHE (bioMérieux) Anaerobes: Brucella blood agar with appropriate supplements These media may require supplemental nutrients to obtain enhanced growth of nutritionally fastidious organisms such as pneumococci, streptococci, Abiotrophia, Haemophilus, gonococci, meningococci and Campylobacter. (wikipedia.org)
  • antibiotic
  • 20%), in patients who have previously been treated with a macrolide antibiotic, or as second-line therapy for patients whose infection persists after an initial course of triple therapy. (wikipedia.org)
  • When laboratory services are not available, it may be necessary to administer a combination of drugs, including an amoebicidal drug to kill the parasite and an antibiotic to treat any associated bacterial infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • viral
  • The rate of clinical disease progression varies widely between individuals and has been shown to be affected by many factors such as host susceptibility and immune function health care and co-infections, as well as factors relating to the viral strain. (blogspot.com)
  • While bacterial cause is the top reason of acquiring diarrhoea, or more particularly traveller's diarrhoea, viral infection has been found the reason in every one in every three cases (or 10-15% of all cases), notably rotavirus and Norwalk, which are passed between humans due to poor hygiene. (blogspot.com)
  • antibiotics
  • While tylosin may be one appropriate therapeutic choice in theory for the conditions listed above, many other antibiotics may be preferable for treating a specific infection, and tylosin will not be the first choice. (wikipedia.org)
  • If the infection is severe, the doctor may prescribe antibiotics, such as ciprofloxacin or TMP-SMX (Bactrim). (wikipedia.org)
  • treatment
  • In general, tylosin is licensed for the treatment of infections caused by organisms susceptible to the drug, but it has also been used as a treatment of colitis in small animals, as a growth promotant in food-producing animals, and as a way of reducing epiphora (tear staining) around the eyes of white-faced dogs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Since tylosin has a relatively poor spectrum of activity against Gram-negative organisms, it may not be a sensible therapeutic choice in the treatment of infections caused by unknown, potentially unsusceptible organisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • This type of test is most commonly used in healthcare settings to help guiding physicians in treatment of patients by indicating what concentration of antimicrobial would successfully treat an infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • As proton-pump inhibition can suppress infection, any treatment with this class of drug should be ceased 2 weeks prior to biopsy retrieval. (wikipedia.org)
  • immune
  • Most patients die from opportunistic infections or malignancies associated with the progressive failure of the immune system. (blogspot.com)
  • diarrhea
  • In some cases, diarrhea may be a side effect of several drugs used to treat HIV, or it may simply accompany HIV infection, particularly during primary HIV infection. (blogspot.com)
  • In the later stages of HIV infection, diarrhea is thought to be a reflection of changes in the way the intestinal tract absorbs nutrients, and may be an important component of HIV-related wasting. (blogspot.com)
  • Bacillary dysentery should not be confused with diarrhea caused by other bacterial infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • patients
  • Patients with MALT lymphoma should also be tested and treated for H. pylori since eradication of this infection can induce remission in many patients when the tumor is limited to the stomach. (wikipedia.org)
