Staphylococcal infections. Staphylococci are Gram‐positive cocci occurring in clusters. The best known pathogen in this group is Staphylococcus aureus. This organism invades the hair follicles and causes folliculitis, also referred to as pustules. A deeper infection of the skin tissues is referred to as a boil, abscess, or furuncle. These lesions are usually filled with pus. This is a report from Boston, Massachusetts, of a study of staphylococcal infection and nasal carriage in a group of married university students and their families housed together in a relatively com-pact and self-contained community. Of persons tested, (57%) were found to be nasal carriers of Staphylococcus aureus [details of phage types and antibiotic sensitivity Cited by: 8.
This is a survey of staphylococcal disease in the public medical wards of Johns Hopkins Hospital from June, to May, 2, patients were observed and (%) found to have staphylococcal infection which in 57 was considered to be hospital acquired.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease that is associated with reduced quality of life (QoL), primarily due to itchy skin [1,2,3].The disease is characterised by reduced skin microbial diversity and overgrowth of Staphylococcus (S.) aureus, a bacterium that can aggravate skin inflammation via the production of staphylococcal enterotoxins that Cited by: Staphylocci are constant residents of the skin and mucous membranes.

Country of. Toxic shock syndrome (TSS) is a condition caused by bacterial toxins. Symptoms may include fever, rash, skin peeling, and low blood pressure. There may also be symptoms related to the specific underlying infection such as mastitis, osteomyelitis, necrotising fasciitis, or pneumonia.
TSS is typically caused by bacteria of the Streptococcus pyogenes or Staphylococcus aureus Specialty: Infectious disease. Staphylococcus aureus is now acknowledged as being the most important bacterial pathogen of humans. It usually produces localized disease but can be rapidly invasive, spreading through the tissues, invading bone, and seeding the bloodstream to produce a fulminant picture of septic shock, disseminated intravascular coagulation, and rapid : Allen Honeyman.
Staphylococcus sp. is not only a commensal bacterium but also a major human pathogen that causes a wide range of clinical infections, such as skin and soft tissue infection, pleuropulmonary and osteoarticular infection, and endocarditis as well as life-threatening systemic infections.
More evidence is currently emerging to show that Staphylococcus, particularly Staphylococcus Cited by: 1. Antibodies produced against a capsule cannot affect whether disease will occur.
The importance of the capsule to virulence for Streptococcus pneumoniae can be determined because there are strains both with and without the capsule.
Capsules related to virulence are produced by the causative agents of anthrax and bubonic plague. Foodborne disease is a widespread and ever-increasing public health problem, affecting developed and developing countries worldwide.
Highly publicized outbreaks of foodborne infections and intoxications in recent years have heightened public awareness of this threat, so now more than ever it is necessary to understand the principles and impact of Reviews: 1.
