Pseudomonas aeruginosa Summary

Summary

Pseudomonasaeruginosa is generally Gram-negative and is rod-shaped in additionto being a mono flagellated bacterium that uniquely has a form of anutritional versatility. P.aeruginosa is considered an existingopportunistic human pathogen. Its taxonomy is broken down into thefollowing: First, the bacterium class is Gammaproteobacteria, orderpseudomonas, family Pseudomonadaceae, genus Pseudomonas and speciesPseudomonas aeruginosa. These types of the bacterium are oftensaprophytes and often are found in the soils and water in addition tovarious forms of decomposing matters.

Theclinical significance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa is that it isimportant only if causing infection. P. aeruginosa has differentvirulence factors that often results in its profound capability tomultiply and grow particularly in different settings of theenvironments and further causing different types of organicinfections. The virulence factors include among others, the toxins,the adhesins, the proteases and the pigments. P. aeruginosa isisolated from water samples that are collected at various sites ofthe patient’s tissues and organs. A complete blood count is carriedout to check for an increase in the count of the white blood cells inaddition to an immature leukocyte that are circulating continuouslyin the bloodstream. The antimicrobials are used to combating P.aeruginosa infection. In most occasions, a two-drug therapy is oftenused.

Additionally,steroids may also be utilized in some situations but will be usedwith the antibiotics. It is one of the principal pathogens ofcontinual cystic fibrosis (CF) which is a lung infection. As a resultof the inflamed CF lungs high selective pressure, the P. aeruginosaoften will undergo through a complicated physiological in addition tothe morphological transformation. Experiments have been carried outin mice and have resulted in the hopeful result for the utilizationof the bacteriophages for the treatment or prevention of septicemiainfections that are caused by the P. aeruginosa.
