• pathogenic organisms
  • In humans the gut flora is established at one to two years after birth, and by that time the intestinal epithelium and the intestinal mucosal barrier that it secretes have co-developed in a way that is tolerant to, and even supportive of, the gut flora and that also provides a barrier to pathogenic organisms. (wikipedia.org)
  • anaerobes
  • Because anaerobes are the predominant components of the normal flora of the skin and mucous membranes, they are a common cause infections of endogenous origin. (wikipedia.org)
  • Anaerobes have been found in infections throughout the human body. (wikipedia.org)
  • Anaerobes are able to cause all types of intracranial infections. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example in the series of cases reviewed from the literature by Sinave et al , only 23 out of 37 cases had F necrophorum detected, the remaining 13 patients had a range of other organisms, both aerobes and anaerobes. (bmj.com)
  • Anaerobic or mixed infections result from disruption of mucosal surfaces and introduction of anaerobes into a normally sterile sight. (hardydiagnostics.com)
  • abscess
  • The origin of brain abscess is generally an adjacent chronic ear, mastoid, or sinus infection oropharynx, teeth or lungs. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mastoid and ear or infections generally progress to the temporal lobe or cerebellum, while facial sinusitis commonly causes frontal lobe abscess. (wikipedia.org)
  • In 1936, André Lemierre, in a discourse on anaerobic septicaemias, divided patients into six groups according to the source of infection: inflammatory lesions of the nasopharynx, particularly tonsillar/peritonsillar abscess, lesions of mouth and jaw, otitis media or mastoiditis, purulent postpartum endometritis, appendicitis, and urinary tract infections. (bmj.com)
  • Anaerobic infection is characterized by abscess formation and tissue destruction. (hardydiagnostics.com)
  • bacteremia
  • Severe infection may result from the invasion of the bacillus through a break in the mucous membrane into the venous circulation, where thrombosis and bacteremia may occur. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • cells per gram
  • As many as 1010-1011 cells per gram of human feces have been reported. (wikipedia.org)
  • The colon, in contrast, contains a densely-populated microbial ecosystem with up to 1012 cells per gram of intestinal content. (wikipedia.org)
  • Gardnerella
  • Transfer of Haemophilus vaginalis Gardner and Dukes to a New Genus, Gardnerella: G. vaginalis (Gardner and Dukes) comb. (wikipedia.org)
  • lactic acid
  • In contrast, under optimal anaerobic growth conditions, physiological concentrations of lactic acid inactivated the BV-associated pathogens without affecting the vaginal lactobacilli. (wikipedia.org)
  • resistance
  • Clindamycin, because of its broad spectrum of activity and resistance to -lactamase degradation, is an attractive first-line therapy in the treatment of odontogenic infections. (cda-adc.ca)
  • Current information concerning the etiology, antimicrobial treatment, and antimicrobial resistance of odontogenic infections from 1990 to the present was obtained using a MEDLINE search. (cda-adc.ca)
  • Haemophilus
  • 3 The epidemic of Brazilian purpuric fever in 1990, which was associated with a new clonal variation of Haemophilus influenzae, and the more recent devastating invasive infections caused by group A Streptococcus provide convincing evidence of this. (cda-adc.ca)
