Gram-negative bacteria occurring in the lower intestinal tracts of man and other animals.
It is the most common species of anaerobic bacteria isolated from human soft tissue infections.
I could catch this it seems to affect the "common."
Streptococcus pneumoniae A gram-positive organism found in the upper respiratory tract, inflammatory exudates, and various body fluids of normal and/or diseased humans and, rarely, domestic animals.
This covers the GENE developed GTC database. Bob Hennesey runs that part of the company. It is the reason for the rounded (retail type) stock chart. As opposed to say a few instnces of "old faithful.
I will not post so much shameless boostering in the future if these definition foul up the board. For future reference: http://www.uidaho.edu/~cook9540
Staphylococcus aureus Potentially pathogenic bacteria found in nasal membranes, skin, hair follicles, and perineum of warm-blooded animals. They may cause a wide range of infections and intoxications. Bacteriology. a species of bacteria that is a major human pathogen, composed of nonmotile cocci, and distinguished by the yellow pigment of the colonies.
Staphylococcus epidermidis Bacteriology. a coagulase-negative bacterial species that ferments glucose and produces colonies that are usually white; commonly found on human skin.
Pseudomonas aeruginosa A species of gram-negative, aerobic, rod-shaped bacteria commonly isolated from clinical specimens (wound, burn, and urinary tract infections). It is also found widely distributed in soil and water. P. Aeruginosa is a major agent of hospital infection.
This particular infection kills a lot of infants, it also gets the elderly and others who are weak. It becomes septicaemic quickly.
Proteus mirabilis A species of gram-negative, facultatively anaerobic, rod-shaped bacteria that is frequently isolated from clinical specimens. Its most common site of infection is the urinary tract.
Neisseria meningitidis A species of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria found in cerebrospinal fluid as the causative agent of cerebrospinal meningitis (meningitis, meningococcal) as well as in venereal discharges and blood.
I got a meningitus vaccine. It cost more than $150. I wonder if GENE gets a piece?
Campylobacter jejuni: A species of bacteria that resemble small tightly coiled spirals. Its organisms are known to cause abortion in sheep and fever and enteritis in man and may be associated with enteric diseases of calves, lambs, and other animals.
Spontaneous abortion occurs in animals naturally. It increases with frequency as the animal gets older. This combined with the loss of stored reproductive cells cause women to gradually become less fertile.
Candida albicans, Monilia albicans -- (a parasitic fungus that can infect the mouth or the skin or the intestines or the vagina) MEMBER OF: genus Candida -- (a genus of yeastlike imperfect fungi; sometimes included in genus Monilia of the family Moniliaceae)
I think we all have heard of this.
