Module 6 | الوحدة 6

Objectives for module 6: Pseudomoads, Acinetobacters, Vibrios, Campylobacters, Helicoacter and related bacteria

Upon completion of this part, students should be able to:

  • Describe each of the genera named above and list their pathogenic species;
  • Describe the mode of transmission, clinical findings, the morphology and identification (diagnostic tests) for each of them;
  • List some effective antibiotics against each of them.

Components: two lectures amalgamated into one youtube audio-slide lecture; online exercises and feedback form plus innovation, creativity and the use of higher-order thinking patterns (see below):

Lecture 1 & 2 in one youtube clip about the Pseudomoads, Acinetobacters, Vibrios, Campylobacters, Helicoacter and related bacteria

    • Salam Alikum AB Ghamdi,

      Thank you very much for you question, which I understand is about the strains (not stains) of vibrio cholerae.
      Short answer is yes. You need to know the epidemic strains which are:
      1) O1
      2) O139
      Further, the O1 is divided into Classical and El Tor.
      We study them and diagnose (identify them) in the laboratory because they are can cause epidemic. That is, they can spread and cause many infections and death.
      If you have other questions, please ask me.
      Thanks

    • Dear (محمد علي)
      Thank you. You found one great article describing this notorious bacteria, which is killing people in every country and causing many nosocomial infections and developing antibiotic resistance.
      Thank you.

    • Thank you (حسن عبدالله),
      this is very useful article for everyone working in the laboratory in the field of medical microbiology and yourself, your colleagues and I.
      Thank you for sharing it.

    • Dear (سامي علي),
      You came across a very “cut-edge” article in the forefront of science. The link made is probably very real but it is not direct. That is, when there is a chronic inflammation, the body gets sick in multiple organs. This is now seen with many chronic infections. It doesn’t mean that the bacteria are in the brain, for example, causing brain damage, but the chronic inflammation is causing damage to the brain and other organs.
      Hope this make it clear for you
      thanks.

  1. Thank you doctor,
    I know understnatd why we are at war with the bacteria: Acinetobacter baumannii

    • Dear (محمد عطيه),
      I know they are a bit difficult on the first day. Try to read through the book today and again the coming weekend and next week, then they will be very easy. Trust me, every time your read it again, it is easier and easier.
      Regards,.

    • Dear (عبدالكريم محمد),
      This is because humans use antibiotics to treat themselves and animals. This put pressure on bacteria to become resistant. From there the bacteria reach the environment. Hope this explains the cycle.
      Regards,.

    • Dear (غرم الله الزهراني),
      Campylobacter cause bloody diarrhea and this can be deadly in the young and elderly and the immunocompromised and treatment is needed. Nonetheless, it can be treated with proper antibiotics and fluid replacement usually.
      Regards,.

    • Dear Fouad Ahemed,
      Vibrio is a gastrointestinal disease and for its diagnosis we use fecal samples. All fecal samples contain many organisms (billions to trillions) and therefore, we will grow many different bacteria – mostly not pathogenic as we learned in the first module – therefore we must select the bacteria that are expected to be the cause of the disease based on a tentative diagnosis.
      The same apply to other bacteria that appear in fecal samples, for example enterobacteriaceae (which cause many gastrointestinal diseases) we also need selective media (see module 5).
