  • Specific forms of vaginal inflammation include the following types: Infectious vaginitis accounts for 90% of all cases in reproductive age women: Candidiasis: vaginitis caused by proliferation of Candida albicans, Candida tropicalis, Candida krusei Bacterial vaginosis: vaginitis caused by increased growth of Gardnerella (a bacterium).

  • sugars
  • Prevnar (PCV7) is a heptavalent vaccine, meaning that it contains the cell capsule sugars of seven serotypes of the bacteria S. pneumoniae (4, 6B, 9V, 14, 18C, 19F and 23F), conjugated with diphtheria proteins. (wikipedia.org)
  • species
  • The bacterial cell wall and materials adhering to its surface are the main ways in which we differentiate one species or strain from another. (scienceprofonline.com)
  • Bacteria evolving resistance against the action of multiple drugs and its ability to disseminate the multidrug resistance trait(s) across various strains of the same bacteria or different bacterial species impose serious threat to public health. (frontiersin.org)
  • permit
  • It may permit bacterial colonies to survive chemical sterilization with chlorine, iodine, and other chemicals, leaving autoclaving or flushing with boiling water as the only certain methods of decontaminating. (wikipedia.org)
  • pathogenicity
  • Bacteria that possess capsules are considered to be encapsulated, and generally have greater pathogenicity (ability to cause disease) because capsules protect bacteria, even from phagocytic white blood cells of the immune system. (scienceprofonline.com)

  • cell wall
  • Some bacterial cells are surrounded by a viscous substance forming a covering layer or envelope around the cell wall. (readtiger.com)
  • In addition, the capsule and several factors embedded in the cell wall, including M protein, lipoteichoic acid, and protein F (SfbI) facilitate attachment to various host cells. (wikipedia.org)
