Clinical Information
  • An acute infectious disorder caused by gram positive or gram negative bacteria. Representative examples include pneumococcal , streptococcal, salmonella and meningeal infections.
  • Bacteria are living things that have only one cell. Under a microscope, they look like balls, rods, or spirals. They are so small that a line of 1,000 could fit across a pencil eraser. Most bacteria won't hurt you - less than 1 percent of the different types make people sick. Many are helpful. Some bacteria help to digest food, destroy disease-causing cells, and give the body needed vitamins. Bacteria are also used in making healthy foods like yogurt and cheese.but infectious bacteria can make you ill. They reproduce quickly in your body. Many give off chemicals called toxins, which can damage tissue and make you sick. Examples of bacteria that cause infections include streptococcus, staphylococcus, and e. Coli.antibiotics are the usual treatment. When you take antibiotics, follow the directions carefully. Each time you take antibiotics, you increase the chances that bacteria in your body will learn to resist them. Later, you could get or spread an infection that those antibiotics cannot cure.
  • Infections and associated diseases caused by bacteria, general or unspecified.
  • Infections by bacteria, general or unspecified.
