- Clostridium difficile (klos-TRID-e-um dif-uh-SEEL), also known as Clostridioides difficile and often referred to as C. difficile or C. diff, is a bacterium that can cause symptoms ranging from diarrhea to life-threatening inflammation of the colon.

Clostridioides difficile (syn. Clostridium difficile), also known as Peptoclostridium difficile, C. difficile, or C. diff (/ s iː d ɪ f /), is Gram-positive species of spore-forming bacteria. Clostridioides spp. are anaerobic , motile bacteria, ubiquitous in nature and especially prevalent in soil.
Clostridioides difficile infection (CDI or C-diff), also known as Clostridium difficile infection, is a symptomatic infection due to the spore -forming bacterium Clostridioides difficile. Symptoms include watery diarrhea, fever, nausea, and abdominal pain. It makes up about 20% of cases of antibiotic-associated diarrhea.
Clostridioides is a genus of Gram-positive bacteria, which includes Clostridioides difficile, a human pathogen causing an infectious diarrhea. Taxonomy [ edit ] The genus Clostridioides was created to describe a few species formerly in the genus Clostridium which have been shown to be their own genetically distinct genus using 16S rRNA gene sequencing analysis. 
So we would need to link en:Clostridioides difficile (bacteria) to Clostridium difficile (Q310543), not Clostridioides difficile (Q56290719). The problem is that although these two Wikidata items claim that they are instances of a taxon, they are not (and this is well known at Wikidata). They are instances of a taxon name.
Clostridium difficile toxin A (TcdA) is a toxin generated by Clostridioides difficile, formerly known as Clostridium difficile. It is similar to Clostridium difficile Toxin B . The toxins are the main virulence factors produced by the gram positive , anaerobic, Clostridioides difficile bacteria.
Clostridioides difficile (synonym Clostridium difficile) är en grampositiv stavbakterie som kan bilda sporer. Den finns hos vissa personer i tarmens normalflora, och vid behandling med vissa sorters antibiotika finns en risk för överväxt av bakterien som då orsakar diarré.
Clostridioides difficile (בעבר: Clostridium difficile) הוא מין חיידק מתג גראם-חיובי אל-אווירני ויוצר נבגים, השייך ל סוג Clostridioides.
- Strain Types and Changing Epidemiology
- What Is The Best Way to Express CDI Incidence and Rates?
Excerpts from the Clinical Practice Guidelines : IDSA https://academic.oup.com/cid/advance-article/doi/10.1093/cid/cix1085/4855916#.WoUYufzsWpk.twitter The emergence of the virulent, epidemic ribotype 027 strain was associated with increased incidence, severity, and mortality during the mid-2000s and resulted in outbreaks across North America [36, 48, 49], England [50, 51], parts of continental Europe [52, 53], and Asia . The recent isolates of the 027 strain are more highly resistant to fluoroquinolones compared to historic strains of the same type . This, coupled with increasing use of the fluoroquinolones worldwide likely promoted dissemination of a once uncommon strain . Consistent with the presence of one or more molecular markers responsible for increased virulence, patients infected with the 027 epidemic strain in Montreal were shown to have more-severe disease than patients infected with other strains . In a later Canadian multicenter study of hospitalized pa...
Express the rate of HO-CDI as the number of cases per 10000 patient-days. Express the CO-HCFA prevalence rate as the number of cases per 1000 patient admissions (good practice recommendation).
What is the recommended CDI surveillance strategy for pediatric institutions?
1. Use the same standardized case definitions (HO, CO-HCFA, CA) and rate expression (cases per 10000 patient-days for HO, cases per 1000 patient admissions for CO-HCFA) in pediatric patients as for adults (good practice recommendation). 2. Conduct surveillance for HO-CDI for inpatient pediatric facilities but do not include cases <2 years of age (weak recommendation, low quality of evidence). 3. Consider surveillance for CA-CDI to detect trends in the community (weak recommendation, low quali...
