Definition
 
enEnglish
Acholeplasma definition: A genus of gram-negative organisms including saprophytic and parasitic or pathogenic species.
Bacteria definition: One of the three domains of life (the others being Eukarya and ARCHAEA), also called Eubacteria. They are unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms which generally possess rigid cell walls, multiply by cell division, and exhibit three principal forms: round or coccal, rodlike or bacillary, and spiral or spirochetal. Bacteria can be classified by their response to OXYGEN: aerobic, anaerobic, or facultatively anaerobic; by the mode by which they obtain their energy: chemotrophy (via chemical reaction) or PHOTOTROPHY (via light reaction); for chemotrophs by their source of chemical energy: CHEMOLITHOTROPHY (from inorganic compounds) or chemoorganotrophy (from organic compounds); and by their source for CARBON; NITROGEN; etc.; HETEROTROPHY (from organic sources) or AUTOTROPHY (from CARBON DIOXIDE). They can also be classified by whether or not they stain (based on the structure of their CELL WALLS) with CRYSTAL VIOLET dye: gram-negative or gram-positive.
bacteria definition: unicellular prokaryotic microorganisms which generally possess rigid cell walls, multiply by cell division, and exhibit three principal forms, round or coccal, rodlike or bacillary, and spiral or spirochetal; bacteria can be classifed by their response to oxygen: aerobic, anerobic, or facultatively anerobic; by the mode by which they obtain energy: chemotrophic or phototrophic; for chemotrophs by their source of chemical energy: lithotrophic (from inorganic compounds) or organotrophic (from organic compounds); and by where they get their carbon: heterotrophic (from organic sources) or autotrophic (from carbon dioxide); they can also be classifed by whether or not they stain, based on the structure of their cell walls with crystal violet dye: gram-negative or gram-positive.
bacteria definition: A large group of single-cell microorganisms. Some cause infections and disease in animals and humans. The singular of bacteria is bacterium.
Bacteria definition: Unicellular, prokaryotic organisms that reproduce by cell division and usually have cell walls; can be shaped like spheres, rods or spirals and can be found in virtually any environment.
aerobic bacteria definition: see RTs for specific organisms.
anaerobic bacteria definition: see RTs for specific organisms.
Bacterial Count definition: The quantitative determination of bacterial populations. The two most widely used methods for determining bacterial numbers are: 1) the standard, or viable, plate count method and 2) spectrophotometric (turbidimetric) analysis.
Bacteria definition: A measurement of the bacteria in a biological specimen.
Bacteroides definition: genus of gram negative, anaerobic, rod shaped bacteria; its organisms are normal inhabitants of the oral, respiratory, intestinal, and urogenital cavities of humans, animals, and insects; some species may be pathogenic.

Antimicrobial Drug Use and Antibiotic-Resistant Bacteria (response)

Fernando Bellissimo-Rodrigues

Emerging Infectious Diseases 14 (1), 01 Jan 2008

Although antimicrobial drug use has been historically linked to antibiotic resistance in bacteria, we should not miss the perspective that such a risk factor mostly favors the cross-transmission of preexisting antibiotic-resistant bacteria, taking into account the disruption of the endogenous microflora, rather than the selection of “de novo” resistant mutants ( 2 ).

Fernando Bellissimo-Rodrigues

Emerging Infectious Diseases 14 (1), 01 Jan 2008

That is likely why Larson et al., in a multicenter study in the United States, recently found no relationship between antimicrobial drug control policies and level of antibiotic resistance in bacteria, but did find an association between lower levels of antibiotic resistance in Staphylococcus aureus and enterococci and high compliance with hand hygiene ( 7 ).

Fernando Bellissimo-Rodrigues

Emerging Infectious Diseases 14 (1), 01 Jan 2008

Bellissimo-Rodrigues regarding our article analyzing risk factors for surveillance-culture positivity with extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)–producing bacteria ( 1 ).

Fernando Bellissimo-Rodrigues

Emerging Infectious Diseases 14 (1), 01 Jan 2008

We agree with the author that patient-to-patient transmission is a potentially important causal factor in the emergence of resistance for ESBL-producing bacteria as well as for other antimicrobial drug–resistant bacteria, such as vancomycin-resistant enterococci, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus , and drug-resistant Pseudomonas and Acinetobacter spp.
