Real-Time PCR Quantitation of Clostridia in Feces of Autistic Children
TLDR
Analysis of the real-time PCR data indicated that the cell count differences between autistic and control children for C. bolteae and the following Clostridium groups were statistically significant, and the assay showed high sensitivity and should have great potential for quantitation of other bacteria in the intestinal tract.
Gastrointestinal microflora studies in late-onset autism.
TLDR
Significant alterations in the upper and lower intestinal flora of children with late-onset autism are demonstrated and may provide insights into the nature of this disorder.
Reclassification of Clostridium coccoides, Ruminococcus hansenii, Ruminococcus hydrogenotrophicus, Ruminococcus luti, Ruminococcus productus and Ruminococcus schinkii as Blautia coccoides gen. nov.,
TLDR
Phenotypic and phylogenetic studies were performed on 15 isolates of an unidentified Gram-positive, anaerobic, non-sporulating coccobacillus-shaped bacterium isolated from human faeces, and it is suggested that a novel genus, Blautia gen. nov., is proposed.
Selective and differential medium for isolation of Clostridium difficile
TLDR
A selective and differential agar medium that contains cycloserine, cefoxitin, fructose, and egg yolk (CCFA) was developed to facilitate the isolation of C. difficile from fecal specimens and was found to be the most sensitive and selective of these media for the recovery of the bacterium.
Cetobacterium somerae sp. nov. from human feces and emended description of the genus Cetobacterium.
TLDR
Phenorypic and phylogenetic studies were performed on four isolates of an unidentified gram-negative, microaerotolerant, non-spore-forming, rod-shaped bacterium isolated from the feces of children, and it was proposed that the unknown fecal bacterium be classified in the genus Cetobacterium.
A Controlled Clinical Trial of E5 Murine Monoclonal IgM Antibody to Endotoxin in the Treatment of Gram-Negative Sepsis
TLDR
Treatment with E5 antiendotoxin antibody appears safe and reduces mortality and enhances the resolution of organ failure among patients with gram-negative sepsis who are not in shock when treated.
Effect of diet on human fecal flora: comparison of Japanese and American diets.
TLDR
Studies comparing feces of subjects from Scotland, England, and the United States with that from subjects of India, Japan, and Uganda reveal that in the subjects from countries of high cancer incidence there was a higher incidence of large bowel cancer.
Multicenter Evaluation of the Cepheid Xpert Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Test as a Rapid Screening Method for Detection of MRSA in Nares
TLDR
It is concluded that the Xpert MRSA assay is a simple, rapid, and accurate method for performing active surveillance for MRSA in a variety of health care populations.
