Bacillus cereus is recognized as a major pathogenic bacterium that causes food poisoning and produces gastrointestinal diseases of 2 types: emetic and diarrheal. The emetic type, which is often linked to pasta and rice, arises from a preformed toxin, cereulide, in food. Rapid and accurate diagnostic methods for this emetic toxin are important but are limited. Here we describe 3 patients with B cereus food poisoning in which cereulide was detected and measured sequentially. Three family members…

Acute Liver Failure after Ingestion of Fried Rice Balls: A Case Series of Bacillus cereus Food Poisonings
TLDR
This report exemplifies the necessity of a multidisciplinary approach in cases of Bacillus cereus associated food poisonings to rapidly establish the diagnosis, to closely monitor critically ill patients, and to provide supportive measures for acute liver failure and—whenever necessary—urgent liver transplantation.
The Food Poisoning Toxins of Bacillus cereus
TLDR
The main focus of this review are the two tripartite enterotoxin complexes Hbl and Nhe, but the latest findings on cereulide and CytK are also presented, as well as methods for toxin detection, and the contribution of further putative virulence factors to the diarrheal disease.
Evaluation of the Toxicity and Toxicokinetics of Cereulide from an Emetic Bacillus cereus Strain of Milk Origin
TLDR
It is suggested that urgent sanitary practices are needed to eliminate emetic toxins and emetic B. cereus in raw milk in order to expand the understanding of the toxic effects of cereulide.
Detection of Enterotoxigenic Psychrotrophic Presumptive Bacillus cereus and Cereulide Producers in Food Products and Ingredients
In the last decade, foodborne outbreaks and individual cases caused by bacterial toxins showed an increasing trend. The major contributors are enterotoxins and cereulide produced by Bacillus cereus,
The Bacillus cereus Food Infection as Multifactorial Process
TLDR
This review aims for risk-oriented diagnostics for enteropathogenic B. cereus infections emerging from food infections withEnteropathogenic strains, also known as toxico-infections, which are the subject of this review.
First Insights Into Within Host Translocation of the Bacillus cereus Toxin Cereulide Using a Porcine Model
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cereulide is able to cross the blood–brain–barrier, which may partially explain the cerebral effects reported from human intoxication cases, and typical diagnostic specimens used in human medicine, such as blood samples and urine, are not suitable for diagnostics of food borne Cereulide intoxications.
Distribution of the Emetic Toxin Cereulide in Cow Milk
TLDR
A clear affinity of cereulide towards the hydrophobic, lipid phase is demonstrated, aligning with Cereulide’s naturally strong hydrophobia properties, suggesting an intensified cereulides analysis of lipid enriched dairy products to prevent severe cereulid intoxications or cross-contamination in processed foods.
Determination of Bacillus cereus Emetic Toxin in Food Products by Means of LC–MS²
Cereulide is the heat-stable toxin produced by certain strains of Bacillus cereus. It is the main virulence factor of emetic B. cereus strains, which causes the emetic food poisoning syndrome,
Bacillus cereus Food Poisoning
The B. cereus group today consists of seven different species. One of them is Bacillus anthracis. Several of the species can cause food poisoning and will in most cases not be distinguished in

Bacillus cereus, the causative agent of an emetic type of food-borne illness.
TLDR
This work will summarize the data available for the emetic type of the disease, discuss some new insights in emetic strain characteristics, diagnosis, and toxin synthesis, and summarizes the data involved in the diarrhoeal syndrome and its corresponding toxin.
Fulminant liver failure in association with the emetic toxin of Bacillus cereus.
TLDR
Fulminant liver failure developed after the ingestion of food contaminated with the B. cereus emetic toxin, indicating that it caused liver failure in this patient.
From soil to gut: Bacillus cereus and its food poisoning toxins.
TLDR
The toxins associated with foodborne diseases frequently caused by B. cereus are reviewed, and recent findings regarding the associated toxins are discussed, as well as the present knowledge on virulence regulation.
Quantitative Analysis of Cereulide, an Emetic Toxin of Bacillus cereus, by Using Rat Liver Mitochondria
TLDR
A quantitative assay based on its mitochondrial respiratory uncoupling activity for the identification of cereulide as a causative agent of emetic food poisonings, which was highly reproducible and in good agreement with the HEp‐2 cell vacuolation test.
Fatal Family Outbreak of Bacillus cereus-Associated Food Poisoning
TLDR
A fatal case due to liver failure after the consumption of pasta salad is described and demonstrates the possible severity of the emetic syndrome.
The Rice Culture Filtrate of Bacillus cereus Isolated from Emetic‐Type Food Poisoning Causes Mitochondrial Swelling in a HEp‐2 Cell
TLDR
Rice culture filtrates of Bacillus cereus SA‐50 produced a toxin which caused cytoplasmic vacuole formation in HEp‐2 and HeLa cells and the affecting manner of the culture Filtrates on the oxygen consumption of mitochondria was similar to that of 2,4‐dinitrophenol, suggesting that theculture filtrate contains a toxin acting as an uncoupler of oxidative phosphorylation in mitochondria.

A novel dodecadepsipeptide, cereulide, isolated from Bacillus cereus causes vacuole formation in HEp-2 cells.
TLDR
A HEp-2 cell-vacuolation factor was extracted and purified from the culture supernatant of a Bacillus cereus strain which caused emetic-syndrome food poisoning, and the toxin was named as cereulide, a cyclic dodecadepsipeptide, which is closely related to the potassium ionophore, valinomycin.
A novel dodecadepsipeptide, cereulide, is an emetic toxin of Bacillus cereus.
TLDR
Cereulide causes emesis through the 5-HT3 receptor and stimulation of the vagus afferent and it is found that the purified cereulide caused swelling of mitochondria of HEp-2 cells.
