  • Salmonella

    1. 1. Salmonella
    2. 2. Who Discovered It? <ul><li>It was discovered in 1885 by Theobald Smith in a strain isolated from pigs with hog cholera. </li></ul><ul><li>It was named after the man he worked for, </li></ul><ul><li>Dr. Daniel E. Salmon. </li></ul>
    3. 3. What Is Salmonella ? <ul><li>It is a bacterium that causes Salmonellosis. </li></ul><ul><li>Salmonella is not the actual name of the intestinal infection. </li></ul><ul><li>Second most common bacterial food born illness </li></ul><ul><li>The most commonly reported cause of enteric disease. </li></ul><ul><li>It is a gram-negative, rod-shaped bacilli. </li></ul>
    4. 4. What Are They? <ul><li>These are one-celled organisms </li></ul><ul><li>Salmonella Enteritidis and Salmonella Typhimurium account for about half of the cases of infection </li></ul><ul><li>How big is it? </li></ul><ul><li>To small to see without the aid of a microscope. </li></ul>
    5. 5. Replication
    6. 6. What must it be able to do? <ul><li>Salmonella must be able to invade cells </li></ul><ul><li>Have a complete lipopolysaccharide coat, </li></ul><ul><li>The ability to replicate intracellularly, </li></ul><ul><li>Possibly the elaboration of toxin, to be fully pathogenic </li></ul><ul><li>These attributes are called virulence factors </li></ul>
    7. 7. How Does It Work?
    8. 8. <ul><li>The bacteria colonize in the ileum, the final part of the small intestine, and colon </li></ul><ul><li>They invade the intestinal epithelium, </li></ul><ul><li>They expand within the epithelium and lymphoid cavities. </li></ul><ul><li>Both epithelium is a tissue and lymphoid are a type of white blood cell </li></ul><ul><li>The invasion happens when the organisms including the enterocyte membrane cells, found in the small intestine and colon, start to “ruffle” </li></ul>
    9. 9. <ul><li>This way, they stimulate the pinocytosis, small particles are brought into the cell and suspended within small vesicles where they fuse with lysosomesto hydrolyze, or to break down, the particles. </li></ul><ul><li>They multiply and spread through your mesenteric lymph nodes </li></ul><ul><li>Then they spread through the body through the circulation process. </li></ul><ul><li>After reaching the intestines, they create an acute inflammatory response. </li></ul>
    10. 10. <ul><li>pinocytosis </li></ul>
    11. 11. How Do I Know if I Have It? <ul><li>This reaction can cause fever </li></ul><ul><li>Ulcers </li></ul><ul><li>Chills </li></ul><ul><li>abdominal pain </li></ul><ul><li>leukocytosis, when the white blood cell count is above normal, and diarrhea. </li></ul>
    12. 12. <ul><li>Symptoms occur about 12-72 hours after the infection. </li></ul><ul><li>If you have Nausea </li></ul><ul><li>Vomiting </li></ul><ul><li>Minal diarrhea </li></ul><ul><li>Headache. </li></ul><ul><li>Chronic consequences — arthritic symptoms may follow 3-4 weeks after onset of acute symptoms. </li></ul>
    13. 13. <ul><li>Salmonella Typhimurium and Salmonella paratyphi A, B, and C causes Typhoid fever which side effects include diarrhea, systemic disease and rash. </li></ul><ul><li>It can last between 6-48 hours. </li></ul>
    14. 14. Can it kill you and who does it effect the most? <ul><li>About 600 deaths occur yearly but it is rare. </li></ul><ul><li>The fatality rate for most salmonellosis cases is only 1%. </li></ul><ul><li>More likely to be found in kids, elderly and sick and they may need antibiotherapy treatment </li></ul><ul><li>The two deadliest are S. Dublin and Enteritidis. Dublin having a 15% mortality rate. Enteritidis with a 3.6% chance of death. </li></ul>
    15. 15. How is it passed? <ul><li>They are passed from the feces of animals. So if you eat anything and then get Salmonellosis, it was contaminated with animal feces </li></ul><ul><li>The organism can be found in water, soil, insects, factory surfaces, kitchen surfaces, animal feces, raw meats, raw poultry, and raw seafood’s </li></ul>
    16. 16. How do I prevent it? <ul><li>Wash your hands and be smart with your food </li></ul><ul><li>Keep raw meat away from fruits, veggies, and food that is cooked or ready to eat </li></ul><ul><li>Refrigerate food as soon as you get back from the grocery store </li></ul>
    17. 17. <ul><li>Do not defrost food at room temperature </li></ul><ul><li>Hot foods should be cooked at least at 140 degrees Fahrenheit </li></ul><ul><li>Cool below 40 degrees </li></ul><ul><li>Wash everything after contact with raw sources </li></ul>
    18. 18. Interesting. <ul><li>The rate of salmonellosis has increased over the years mainly in the south, west and northeast </li></ul><ul><li>The most recent cases occurred in peanut butter and pistachios </li></ul>
    19. 19. Even More Interesting! <ul><li>AIDS patients suffer from it frequently and these episodes happen frequently </li></ul><ul><li>Many forms of salmonella are found on the outside of egg shells </li></ul><ul><li>Salmonella Enteritidis is found in the yolk </li></ul><ul><li>This suggests vertical transmission </li></ul><ul><li>The hen that laid the egg had salmonella, therefore infecting the egg’s yolk with it </li></ul>
