Spore-forming Bacilli and Clostridia in human disease.
This review will focus on the specific diseases caused by spores of the Clostridia and Bacilli, and the role of bacterially produced toxins in the pathophysiology of infection.
The clinical importance of emerging Campylobacter species

Members of the Campylobacter genus naturally colonize a wide range of hosts and are frequently found in contaminated food products, which indicates that these bacteria are at risk of zoonotic transmission to humans.
Towards understanding clinical campylobacter infection and its transmission: time for a different approach?
The scope of this review includes a discussion of current methods for diagnosing acute campylobacter infection and for detecting campyloblacter in water and foodstuffs, and questions the prevailing view that poultry is the most common source of campylolobacteriosis.
Inquiring into the Gaps of Campylobacter Surveillance Methods
The strengths and limitations of the typing methodologies currently used to map the broad epidemiologic profile of campylobacteriosis in public health and outbreak investigations are underline.


Campylobacter hominis sp. nov., from the human gastrointestinal tract.
The unique species status of the isolates was further confirmed by taxonomic analysis of 47 phenotypic characteristics, and the 16S rDNA nucleotide sequence analysis were consistent with a new Campylobacter species whose nearest phylogenetic neighbours were Campylabacter gracilis and CampylOBacter sputorum.
Clostridium hathewayi sp. nov., from human faeces.
A new species, Clostridium hathewayi, is described, a strictly anoxic, Gram-positive, sporeforming, rod-shaped bacterium isolated from a chemostat inoculated with human faeces and demonstrated that it represents a novel species.
Anaerobic bacteria in human disease
Anearobic bacteria in human disease, Anearobic bacteriology, and its role in disease are studied.
16S rRNA gene sequences of 'Candidatus Campylobacter hominis', a novel uncultivated species, are found in the gastrointestinal tract of healthy humans.
Evidence is provided for the existence of a previously undescribed, uncultivated Campylobacter species that may be a commensal in the healthy human gut and the source of the amplicons are proposed to be 'Candidatus Campyobacter hominis'.
