Hines has also discovered that species of the spirochetal organisms Leptospira and Brachyspira
cause infection and symptoms that can be just as severe as those that are usually implicated in chronic Lyme.
The etiologic agents of intestinal spirochetosis are members of the genus Brachyspira (formerly Serpulina and Treponema).
A 3-step method was used to establish the distribution of spirochetes in rice-water stool: 1) the presence of spirochetes in rice-water stool was determined by using dark-field microscopy; 2) the diversity of Brachyspira spp.

The role of Brachyspira
species in the etiology of increased mortality observed in 2 breeder goose flocks (Flock A consisting of 1500 and Flock B comprising 4500 laying geese) at the end of the first egg-laying season, in the period of molting, was studied.
To the Editor: Anaerobic intestinal spirochetes of the genus Brachyspira
colonize the large intestine (1).
9] The 2 best-characterized human species are Brachyspira
aalborgi and Serpulina pilosicoli.
islandica fell together with spirochete clones from microbial mats from the Ebro Delta (AY605168) and were distantly related to Brachyspira innocence (M57744) in the genus Brachyspira.
All identified spirochete clones fell into 2 families: the Spirochaetaceae with 2 genera, Cristispira and Spirochaeta, and the Brachyspiraceae, with the genus Brachyspira.
