Clostridium botulinum type A

Clostridium botulinum type A

Bioterrorism Stock Photos – A photomicrograph of Clostridium botulinum type A viewed using a Gram stain technique.

The bacterium C. botulinum produces a nerve toxin, which causes the rare, but serious paralytic illness Botulism. There are seven types of botulism toxin designated by the letters A through G; only types A, B, E and F cause illness in humans.

Gram-positive Bacteria Grown on a Chopped Meat Medium

Gram-positive Bacteria Grown on a Chopped Meat Medium

Bioterrorism Stock Photos – Magnified 956X, this Gram-stained photomicrograph depicts numbers of Clostridium sp. Gram-positive bacteria, which had been grown on a chopped meat medium, for a time period of 48 hours.

A number of Clostridium spp. are highly pathogenic to humans. Members including C. perfringens, and C. septicum, are known to be a cause of gas gangrene in humans, due to their production of a potent exotoxin, and C. botulinum is the cause of botulism food poisoning.

Stock Photo of Gram-positive Clostridium Tertium Bacteria

Stock Photo of Gram-positive Clostridium Tertium Bacteria

Bioterrorism Stock Photos – Magnified 956X, this Gram-stained photomicrograph depicted numbers of the Gram-positive Clostridium tertium bacteria, which had been cultivated on a blood agar plate (BAP), over a time period of 48 hours.

C. tertium is a non-exotoxin producing bacterium, therefore, was long considered to be relatively nonpathogenic to humans. However, cases are being increasingly reported that link C. tertium to human illnesses including bacteremia, meningitis, septic arthritis, enterocolitis, spontaneous bacterial peritonitis, posttraumatic brain abscess, and pneumonia. A number of Clostridium spp. are highly pathogenic to humans. Members including C. perfringens, and C. septicum, are known to be a cause of gas gangrene in humans, due to their production of a potent exotoxin, and C. botulinum is the cause of botulism food poisoning.
