    Regards and best wishes

  2. Hello every1:
    I think Actinomyces can cause many diseases: NEW case report, “Actinomyces Bacteremia in Association With Tubo-ovarian Abscesses and Hysteroscopic Sterilization” http://ow.ly/zFAWv
    “found it from twitter 😉

  3. Thanks doctor, it was great taching.

    I dound that up to 30% of flora in some environments can be Actinomyces.. like the teeth cervix.. did not believe that the mouth have anaerobs.
    thank you

  4. this lecture again good like before lectures. One way to remeber the anaerobes is this (found it on the net)”
    Obligate anaerobes: members worth knowing
    ABC:
    Actinomyces
    Bacteroides
    Clostridium
    Hope it helps other students.
    Thx

    • Dear Abdullah J,
      Any food that contains uncooked ingredients can be very dangerous if not washed properly.. chicken meat and fresh vegetables is never a safe combination, specially if ingested after some time after its preparation.
      regards,.

  5. Hello everyone…
    This is the list of Corynebacteria species: diptheriae, jeikeium, urealyticum, ulcerans, pseudotuberculosis, xerosis, pseudodiptheriticum, striatum, kutscheri
    Thank me <<— haha

      • Any food that contains uncooked ingredients can be very dangerous if not washed properly, cooked or otherwise processed to kill any possible contaminating bacteria.. chicken meat and fresh vegetables is never a safe combination, specially if ingested after some time after its preparation. we will talk about may different disease cuasing bacteria that are found in chicken meat next week as part of module 5 (the enterobacteriaceae). And this will be clear to everyone I am sure.

        regards,.
