E Coli Pathogenicity Study
I want to do real sample study for e.Coli o157:h7 detection. Do you think urine sample of infected people will have e.Coli o157:h7?
Escherichia coli is a type of bacteria that normally lives in the intestines of humans and animals. Most forms of the bacteria are harmless, but some strains may cause severe abdominal cramps, bloody diarrhea, and vomiting. Most cases of infection are caused by contaminated raw vegetables ...Read more
Bacterial infection: E. Coli is a bacteria normally found in the intestines. Certain strains of e. Coli are pathogenic, meaning they can cause disease, such as colitis (bloody diarrhea) and traveler's diarrhea. It is also the most common organism in urinary tract infections. When found in the blood, the infection can be very severe and cause injury in many organs. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
E. coli.: These are all different kinds of E. coli where the first E is always "entero" and the last two are always "E. coli." The second letter is what differs; hemorrhagic, toxigenic, etc. I'm not entirely sure what you mean by extra-intestinal E. coli though? E. coli are most commonly transmitted by a fecal-oral route as they reside in the intestine , but can infect other organs as well. ...Read more
I've read about things such as bagged spinach being recalled due to e.Coli. How can we stay safe but still enjoy these things? Should we avoid them?
What happens if e coli flourishes on oxygen provided by humans, then who is unaffected and who is benefited ?
Homework, right?: E coli can thrive with or without oxygen. Humankind provides the gut flora a place to live, along with nutrients and oxygen. Whether and how the gut flora benefit us is the subject of "discussion" -- don't believe everything you read, and learn your teacher's prejudices before you answer. ...Read more
History of renal stones. UTI this month (E. coli) took 3 courses of antibodies to clear. Day 2 off antibodies - my right kidney hurts. Concerned?
Pyelonephritis: Kidney stones may retain the microorganisms producing infection, making it very difficult to eradicate them without removing the stones. You may be having pain due to the stones producing obstructive symptoms or you may have recurrent infection in the kidney or other problems. Sounds like you should go back and see your doctor. Wish you are better soon. ...Read more
Under which circumstances will a "normal" E.Coli gain on its activity? Is a positive serum beta glucuronidase test related to such activity? TY.
Hard to say/depends: This likely depends on what is considered "normal" about the E. coli and it's activity. E. coli is part of the normal "gut" flora. It's when certain other forms of E. coli like the O157:H7 strain get in the digestive tract that issues occur. So it's hard to say how activity would be affected unless abnormal E. coli get in there. The Bgluc test is homologous to the E. coli Bgalact enzyme. ...Read more
