Salmonella: An important note about this article dealing with Salmonella:
Diarrhea for Salmonella
I have a page that I would call Central, which tries to Opportunistic Diseases.
I started working this page, in fact the complex subject to which it refers in, I believe, 2014.
And if you click on the link above you will see that many of those diseases are not yet active links.
This is due to the immense absence of reliable and accessible articles for the laity and I have finally obtained success in this search.
And I had the happiness of finding it in the Portuguese version.
So I write petrifying text
Now that, finally and duly clarifying the facts in a grim incident I watched.
It was a boy's involvement from a diarrhea (actually a logger's bull).
Facts that also collapsed about his wife and daughter, all with AIDS in 1994.
In those days, I was always in the medical service, taking care of the Waldir.
When you see a whole family, sick couple and daughter the first question is if you can help.
For it is quite possible that there is no one taking care of them.
And, unfortunately, I know ...
The greatest sacrifice is always left to the woman.
It is the woman who, sick, still has to treat her, a child.
And only then, if it is possible and there is even a later one, she will be able to take care of itself.
I was a full-blown idiot and did not see it at that time.
Well, I think maybe, somehow, do not be so late ...
The pain in my heart
The thing that cut my heart the most, in fact, was in pieces, was the sadly sore cry of that girl of little more than twelve weeks of life.
It was as if she asked me about why ... I could say nothing
She played my eardrums (I was a sound engineer, audio operator and DJ.
And, I inform ... I have heard it absolutely and it was clear that she expressed such sufferings.
And even on those sad, painful, and gloomy days, I would rather have them ....
The will of God
This is not how God wanted ... Anyway ... Anyway, at times I feel like going to the door of His Casket and kicks it until it answers and asks the question: "What is necessary to please You "... (...) ...
Well, the girl, I do not know whether happy or unfortunately, did not complete six months.
And the "lad", well, the lad was a man of almost a hundred and ten pounds.
And I, who rarely feared anything, went through it with the caution of one who does not want to annoy a hornet.
But in fact
One day he got there with diarrhea.
And it was crazy diarrhea, caused by salmonela
And the nurse explained to me that there would be no new dawn for him, and in fact there was not.
The diarrhea he had, I finally know, may have been triggered by Salmonella; but may also have been caused by cryptospores.
And as I've read the text, I know that dogs, cats and birds can be vectors of Salmonella.
Yes, the boy died yes, and I have the vague impression that his body had changed.
Yes ... in its dimensions, reduced in volume, due to the extremely violent dehydration.
And that's why I "got my money" by putting some of the text on this blog, telling a tragedy:
In the eagerness to, presumably, try to save a single life that is ...
Salmonelais a genre ofbacteria, commonly calledSalmonellabelonging to the familyEnterobacteriaceae, being known for more than a century.
It has, in its name, a reference to the American scientist calledDaniel Elmer Salmon
It was he who associated the disease with the bacterium for the first time.
Salmonella-borne and food-borne diseases are considered the most alarming public health problems.
Salmonella is an extremely heterogeneous genus, composed of three species:
- Salmonella subterranea,
- Salmonella bongori e
- Salmonella enterica.
The latter currently owning 2610serotypes. Classification in serogroups depends on O antigen, whereas classification in serotypes depends on the antigen H.
The intestinal tract of man and animals is the main natural reservoir of this pathogen.
Foods of avian origin are important transmission routes.
Among the most important for human health, the following stand out:
- Salmonelatyphi (Enteric enteric salmonellaserovar Typhi), which causes systemic andtyphoid fever.
- andSalmonelaTyphimurium (Salmonella enterica entericaserovar Typhimurium)
That it is one of the causative agents ofgastroenteritis.
- Endotoxin, LPS- lipid A of thelipopolysaccharidereleased when theLisebacterial infection is responsible for the characteristic symptomatology;
- Catalase, superoxide dismutase e ATR gene- in particular the gene ATR (acid tolerance response gene) protects the bacteria from the corrosive action of either gastric or phosomic acid;
- Survival withinmacrophages;
- Type III secretion system, used to inject virulence factors inside eukaryotic cells. By segregating these effector proteins (Sips or Ssps) injected by SPI 1 into theM cellspresent inPeyer's plaques do ileus. SPI 2 is responsible for the subsequent systemic disease.
- Antigens: somatic - antigen O, flagellar (protein) - antigen H; capsular (polysaccharide) - Vi antigen
Salmonella, after being ingested by the host, passes through the stomach.
They multiply, sticking and penetrating the epithelial cells of the ileocecal region.
They migrate to the lamina propria leading to the inflammatory response mediated by release of prostaglandins ...
- Less gastric acidity.
- High fever
Disease and Symptoms
Pathologies such asgastroenteritis, seticemia, enteric fevercause the symptoms of salmonellosis. The rest of the text, indeed important, but you will have to go to the Wiki, you can find here: Salmonelose
