Shigella infection - what is shigellosis? Signs and symptoms of deadly stomach bug

SHIGELLA symptoms are caused by an intestinal bacteria disease, which can lead to an infection known as shigellosis. But, what is shigella and how can you spot the signs and symptoms of the food poisoning infection?

The World Health Organization is issuing a warning about a group of deadly bacteria: Recently, the WHO released its first-ever list of “priority pathogens,” a list of antibiotic-resistant bacteria that the organization says pose the greatest threat to human health. The list is divided into three categories: critical-, high- and medium-priority. Three pathogens made it into the critical-priority group. These bacteria are resistant to multiple antibiotics and pose a high risk to people in hospitals and nursing homes, the WHO says. Multidrug-resistant bacteria, sometimes called “superbugs,” are a ...

Conclusion A. djalonensis and A. vogelii are potential antidiabetic and antibacterial agents. The antibacterial potency relates to infections or diseases caused by E. coli, S. typhi and S. aureus such as urinary tract infections, typhoid, diarrhea, skin diseases, and food poisoning. Pharmacological research on this genus is quite elementary and limited, thus, more advanced research is necessary to isolate and determine the activities of bioactive compounds in vitro and in vivo, establish their mechanisms of action and commence the process of clinical research.

Conclusion: Golnar extract showed antibacterial activity against both Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria causing food poisoning. Therefore, the extract can be used for prevention or treatment of foodborne diseases or as preservative in the food industry.The methanol fraction with the highest phenolic and flavonoid content showed the highest antibacterial effect. This indicates that the phenolic and flavonoid compounds in the extract can be responsible for the effect.

Last week’s post on antibiotic resistance in the environment, promoted by herbicides and spread by dust storms from factory farms is a good segue into this week’s observance of the World Health Organization’s Safe Food Day. We also just had news of an outbreak of antibiotic resistant Shigella infections in the U.S., important because the bacteria is unexpectedly resistant to Ciprofloxacin, the oral antibiotic commonly used to treat it, and because it was widespread across the country. Before that there was a Listeria outbreak from ice cream. It seems like there is always something.

Discussion Salmonella remains a major cause of food poisoning in the UK and has been associated with both sporadic cases and larger outbreaks. Phage typing is a phenotypic method traditionally used for surveillance and subtyping of salmonellae but is performed in only a few laboratories due to the requirement for standardised phage panels. Subsequently, DNA fingerprinting techniques such as pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) or multi-locus variable-number tandem-repeat analysis (MLVA), are often employed reactively in outbreak investigations to supplement phage typing data where further strain discrimination is requi...
