Eleven type strains and 24 Lactobacillus isolates, preliminarily classified to the species due to phenotypic features, were investigated. Standard methods of identification with species-specific PCRs and typing with PFGE (with ApaI, NotI and SmaI restriction enzymes) allowed us to distinguish 16 unique strains belonging to 5 species (L. acidophilus, L.(More)
In this work we assessed the genetic diversity of 32 C. calceolus populations from Poland. Mean genetic diversity was moderate (P = 36.4%, A = 1.58, H O = 0.143, F IS = 0.059), and seven geographic regions did not differ significantly in their levels of polymorphism (p > 0.05), although allele frequencies varied greatly. Only four unique alleles were found,(More)
The causes and clinical manifestations of Clostridium difficile infection in children are described in this report. The studies were performed on three children aged up to 3 years. Risk factors as well as possible diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are discussed.
Newcastle disease virus (NDV), member of the Paramyxoviridae family and avian influenza virus (AIV), member of the Orthomyxoviridae family, are two main avian pathogens causing serious economic problems in poultry health. Both are enveloped, single-stranded, negative-sense RNA viruses and cause similar symptoms, ranging from sub-clinical infections to(More)
In the group of 81 children infected with Giardia lamblia, the chosen parameters of cellular and humoral immunity as well as the effect of allergic costitution on the clinical picture of giardiasis were evaluated. Both cellular and humoral immunity disorders were found in patients with a chronic form of infestation. An allergic constitution coexisting with(More)
Detection rate of G. intestionalis in feces with direct microscopy has been compared with the immuno-enzymatic technique detecting protein GSA 65 with Alexon Inc., ProSpec T/Giardia reagents kit. The results obtained with both methods have further been compared with those obtained by microscopic examination of the duodenal content. Detectability of Giardia(More)
