  1. 1. 25<br />Microbial Diseases of the Digestive System<br />
  2. 2. Introduction <br />Diseases of the digestive system are the second most common illnesses in the United States.<br />
  3. 3. Microbial Diseases of the Digestive System<br />Transmitted in food and water<br />Fecal-oral cycle can be broken by<br />Proper sewage disposal<br />Disinfection of drinking water<br />Proper food preparation and storage<br />
  4. 4. The Digestive System<br />Figure 25.1<br />
  5. 5. Structure and Function of the Digestive System<br /> The gastrointestinal (GI) tract, or alimentary canal, consists of the mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, and large intestine.<br />In the GI tract, with mechanical and chemical help from the accessory structures, large food molecules are broken down into smaller molecules that can be transported by blood or lymph to cells.<br />Feces, the solids resulting from digestion, are eliminated through the anus.<br />
  6. 6. Normal Microbiota<br />>700 species in mouth<br />Large numbers in large intestine, including<br />Bacteroides<br />E. coli<br />Enterobacter<br />Klebsiella<br />Lactobacillus<br />Proteus<br />
  7. 7. Normal Microbiota of the Digestive System<br />Large numbers of bacteria colonize the mouth.<br />The stomach and small intestine have few resident microorganisms.<br />Bacteria in the large intestine assist in degrading food and synthesizing vitamins.<br />Up to 40% of fecal mass is microbial cells.<br />

  9. 9. Dental Caries<br />Figure 25.3<br />
  10. 10. Dental Caries (Tooth Decay) <br /> Dental caries begin when tooth enamel and dentin are eroded and the pulp is exposed to bacterial infection.<br />Streptococcus mutans-uses sucrose to form dextran from glucose and lactic acid from fructose.<br />Bacteria adhere to teeth and produce sticky dextran, forming dental plaque.<br />Acid produced during carbohydrate fermentation destroys tooth enamel at the site of the plaque.<br />
  11. 11. Dental Caries (Tooth Decay) <br /> Gram-positive rods and filamentous bacteria ( Actinomycosis ) can penetrate into dentin and pulp.<br />Carbohydrates such as starch, mannitol, sorbitol, and xylitol are not used by cariogenic bacteria to produce dextran and do not promote tooth decay.<br />Caries are prevented by restricting the ingestion of sucrose and by the physical removal of plaque.<br />
  12. 12. Dental Caries (Tooth Decay) <br /> lactic acid <br />Saliva(lysozyme)<br />Crevicular fluid<br />
  13. 13. Tooth Decay<br />Figure 25.4<br />
  14. 14. Periodontal Disease<br /> Caries of the cementum and gingivitis are caused by streptococci, actinomycetes, and anaerobic gram-negative bacteria.<br />Chronic gum disease (periodontitis) can cause bone destruction and tooth loss; periodontitis is due to an inflammatory response to a variety of bacteria growing on the gums.<br />Acute necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis is often caused by Prevotellaintermedia.<br />
  15. 15. Periodontal Disease<br />Figure 25.5<br />
  16. 16. Bacterial Diseases of the Lower Digestive System<br /> A gastrointestinal infection is caused by the growth of a pathogen in the intestines.<br />Incubation times range from 12 hours to 2 weeks. Symptoms of infection generally include a fever.<br />
  17. 17. Bacterial Diseases of the Lower Digestive System<br />A bacterial intoxication results from the ingestion of preformed bacterial toxins.<br />Symptoms appear 1–48 hours after ingestion of the toxin. Fever is not usually a symptom of intoxication.<br />Infections and intoxications cause diarrhea, dysentery, or gastroenteritis.<br />These conditions are usually treated with fluid and electrolyte replacement.<br />
  18. 18. Staphylococcal Food Poisoning<br />Staphylococcus aureusenterotoxin is a superantigen.<br />Figure 25.6<br />
  19. 19. Staphylococcal Food Poisoning (Staphylococcal Enterotoxicosis)<br />ingestion of an enterotoxin (improperly stored foods)<br />bacteria grow and produce enterotoxin (room temperature)<br />Heat stable, 30 minutes of boiling<br />Temperature abuse<br />Foods with high osmotic pressure and those not cooked immediately before consumption (most common often source)<br />
  20. 20. Staphylococcal Food Poisoning (Staphylococcal Enterotoxicosis)<br />Higher osmotic pressure/ low moisture food (cream pies, custard and hams).<br />Refrigeration is important (prevention)<br />
  21. 21. Staphylococcal Food Poisoning (Staphylococcal Enterotoxicosis)<br />1million bacteria/gram of food<br />Diagnosis is based on symptoms. Nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea begin 1–6 hours after eating and last about 24 hours.<br />Laboratory identification of S. aureus isolated from foods is used to trace the source of contamination.<br />Serological tests are available to detect toxins in foods.<br />
  22. 22. Shigellosis<br />Shigellaspp. Gram negative facultative bacilli producing Shiga toxin <br />Shiga toxin causes inflammation and bleeding.<br />Families, daycare facilities<br />Figures 25.7, 25.8<br />
  23. 23. Shigellosis (Bacillary Dysentery)<br /> Shigellosis is caused by any of four species of Shigella.<br />Shigellasonnei- most cpommon in US, mild dysentery, traveller’s diarrhea<br />Symptoms severe dysentery and prostation<br /> blood and mucus in stools, abdominal cramps, and fever. Infections by S. dysenteriae result in ulceration of the intestinal mucosa. With “Shiga toxin)<br />Shigellosis is diagnosed by isolating and identifying the bacteria from rectal swabs.<br />

  31. 31. Salmonellosis (Salmonella Gastroenteritis)<br /> Salmonellosis, or Salmonella gastroenteritis, is caused by many Salmonella entericaserovars.<br />Symptoms include nausea, abdominal pain, and diarrhea and begin 12–36 hours after eating large numbers of Salmonella. <br />Septic shock can occur in infants and in the elderly.<br />Fever might be caused by endotoxin.<br />
  32. 32. Salmonellosis (Salmonella Gastroenteritis)<br /> Mortality is lower than 1%, and recovery can result in a carrier state.<br />Cooking food will usually kill Salmonella.<br />Laboratory diagnosis is based on isolating and identifying Salmonella from feces and foods.<br />

  37. 37. Typhoid Fever<br />1-3% becomes Chronic carrier (gallbladder)<br />1 to 3% recovered patients become carriers, harboring Salmonella in their gallbladder.<br />
  38. 38. Typhoid Fever<br /> Salmonella typhi causes typhoid fever; the bacteria are transmitted by contact with human feces.<br />Fever and malaise occur after a 2-week incubation period. Symptoms last 2–3 weeks.<br />S. typhi is harbored in the gallbladder of carriers.<br /> Typhoid fever is treated with quinolones and cephalosporins; vaccines are available for high-risk people.<br />

  51. 51. Cholera<br /> Vibriocholerae O:1 and O:139 produce an exotoxin that alters the membrane permeability of the intestinal mucosa; the resulting vomiting and diarrhea cause a loss of body fluids.<br />The symptoms last for a few days. Untreated cholera has a 50% mortality rate.<br />Fluid and electrolyte replacement provide effective treatment..<br />

  57. 57. NoncholeraVibrios <br /> Ingestion of other V. cholerae serotypes can result in mild diarrhea.<br />Vibrio gastroenteritis can be caused by V. parahaemolyticus and V. vulnificus.<br />These diseases are contracted by eating contaminated crustaceans or contaminated mollusks.<br />
  58. 58. Escherichia coli Gastroenteritis<br />Occurs as traveler's diarrhea and epidemic diarrhea in nurseries.<br />50% of feedlot cattle may have enterohemorrhagic strains in their intestines.<br />Enterohemorrhagic strains such as E. coli O157:H7 produce Shiga toxin.<br />O = cell wall antigen<br />H = flagellar antigen<br />
  59. 59. Escherichia coli Gastroenteritis<br /> Traveler’s diarrhea may be caused by enterotoxigenic or enteroinvasive strains of E. coli.<br />The disease is usually self-limiting and does not require chemotherapy.<br />
  60. 60. Escherichia coli Gastroenteritis<br /> EnterohemorrhagicE. coli, such as E. coli O157:H7<br />produces Shiga toxins that cause inflammation and bleeding of the colon, including hemorrhagic colitis and hemolytic uremic syndrome.<br />Shiga toxins can affect the kidneys to cause hemolytic uremic syndrome.<br />
  61. 61. Campylobacter Gastroenteritis<br />Campylobacter jejuni<br />Campylobacter is the second most common cause of diarrhea in the United States.<br />Usually transmitted in cow's milk<br />
