• Dysentery
  • There are several Shigella vaccine candidates in various stages of development that could reduce the incidence of dysentery in endemic countries, as well as in travelers suffering from traveler's diarrhea. (wikipedia.org)
  • citation needed] The most commonly observed signs associated with Shigella dysentery include colitis, malnutrition, rectal prolapse, tenesmus, reactive arthritis, and central nervous system problems. (wikipedia.org)
  • infection
  • Infection with Shigella sonnei that is resistant to antibiotics commonly used in pediatric practice has become more common during the past decade ( 1 ). (cdc.gov)
  • During May 1--August 31, 2005, a total of 148 confirmed cases of S. sonnei infection were reported in Fayette County ( Figure 2 ), which represented a 42-fold increase above the previous 5-year baseline. (cdc.gov)
  • Most Shigella infection usually clears up without complications, but if left untreated or delay in diagnosis may lead to some serious complication such as dehydration (especially severe dehydration can lead to shock and death), seizure, hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), toxic megacolon, and reactive arthritis. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the beginning of April 2008 three cases of Shigella sonnei infection were identified among the Orthodox Jewish community of Antwerp, Belgium. (eurosurveillance.org)
  • its S. typhimurium infection is caused by consumption of eggs or poultry that are not adequately cooked or by other interactive human-animal pathogens Escherichia coli O157:H7 enterohemorrhagic (EHEC) which can cause hemolytic-uremic syndrome Other common bacterial foodborne pathogens are: Bacillus cereus Escherichia coli, other virulence properties, such as enteroinvasive (EIEC), enteropathogenic (EPEC), enterotoxigenic (ETEC), enteroaggregative (EAEC or EAgEC) Listeria monocytogenes Shigella spp. (wikipedia.org)
  • resistant
  • Shigella sonnei resistant to cefotaxime (but not to ceftazidime) was isolated for the first time in stool samples from a pediatric patient with vomiting and bloody diarrhea in northern Argentina. (cdc.gov)
  • Fecal
  • Frequency and increase in antigen-specific fecal IgA antibody titer to S. sonnei LPS and invaplex-protein antigens (study day -1 or 0, study days 3,5,7,14, and 28). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • symptoms
  • A confirmed case is defined as illness in a person with S. sonnei isolated from a clinical specimen, and a probable case is defined as clinically compatible symptoms in a person who was epidemiologically linked to a confirmed case. (cdc.gov)
  • Infants and toddlers, the elderly, travelers, and ill people are susceptible to the most severe symptoms of S. sonnei disease. (wikipedia.org)
  • occur
  • Dehydration and seizures occur most often in children, although how Shigella causes these complications unknown. (wikipedia.org)
  • severe
  • If Shigella is suspected and it is not too severe, the doctor may recommend letting it run its course-usually less than a week. (wikipedia.org)
  • Study
  • Frequency and increase in antigen-specific IgG, IgA, and IgM antibody secreting cells (ASC) and antibody titers in lymphocyte supernatant (ALS) to S. sonnei LPS and invaplex-protein antigens (study days 0,7, and 9). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The study assessed the potential impact of The Trivedi Effect® (biofield energy) onShigella sonnei for changes in antimicrobial sensitivity, biochemical study, and biotype number using MicroScan Walk-Away®system. (peerevaluation.org)
