[aeromonas spp. as pathogens in human infections: diagnosis and clinical significance].aeromonads have been described as causative agents in a wide variety of infections in immunosuppressed as well as in immunocompetent patients. it is still controversial whether or not some or all three currently recognized species have to be considered as enteropathogenic. clinical and epidemiological data are incomplete and contradictory although laboratory diagnosis does not cause real problems.19873315971
does aeromonas hydrophila preferentially colonize the bowels of patients with hematologic malignancies?weekly cultures of stools from neutropenic patients and bone marrow transplant recipients yielded aeromonas hydrophila from 8% of 88 patients over a 2-yr period. during this time stools in the routine enteric laboratory yielded a. hydrophila in 0.24% of 1632 patients. although the patient groups and culture methods were not directly comparable, this significant difference in isolation rate (p less than 0.001) may reflect a higher colonization rate in the immunocompromised patient.19873319373
immunoglobulin binding by the regular surface array of aeromonas salmonicida.the cell surface of aeromonas salmonicida is covered by a regular surface array composed of a single species of protein, the a-protein (phipps, b. m., trust, t. j., ishiguro, e. e., and kay, w. w. (1983) biochemistry 22, 2934-2939). the array, known as the a-layer, is the key virulence factor for this organism. cells containing the a-layer specifically bound rabbit igg and human igm with high affinity (kd = 1.0 x 10(-6) m and 3.3 x 10(-6) m, respectively), but neither isogenic a-protein-deficien ...19882967820
virulence properties and enterotoxin production of aeromonas strains isolated from fish.the biological activities in vivo and in vitro of 59 motile aeromonas spp. isolated from fish and water tanks were simultaneously analyzed in poikilothermic and homoiothermic systems. a total of 64.3% of the isolates tested were pathogenic for fish, and 62% of aeromonas hydrophila and a. sobria isolates either virulent or nonvirulent for fish were enterotoxigenic. although the majority of the strains were proteolytic and amylolytic and produced dnase, other activities, such as elastase and staph ...19882972627
