It is also approved to treat adult patients with cIAI caused by susceptible Gram-negative microorganisms such as Bacteroides caccae, Bacteroides fragilis, Bacteroides ovatus, Bacteroides stercoris, Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron
, Bacteroides uniformis, Bacteroides vulgatus, Citrobacter freundii, Enterobacter cloacae, Escherichia coli, Fusobacterium nucleatum, Klebsiella aerogenes, Klebsiella oxytoca, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Parabacteroides distasonis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa.
Characterization of four outer membrane proteins that play a role in utilization of starch by bacteroides thetaiotaomicron
Bacteremia with Staphylococcus aureus and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron
developed and was treated with vancomycin and imipenem.
The model bacteria called Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron
(Bt), as well as other Bacteroides members, have this system.
These included Propionibacterium propionicus, Corynebacterium amycolatum, Actinomyces massiliensis, and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron
, reported Teri M.
is a human colonic gram-negative obligate anaerobe found in high numbers in the human intestine that can ferment a wide diversity of polysaccharides .
On the other hand, in the lean individuals, there was a larger proportion of the Bacteroidetes phylum species Bacteroides faecichinchillae and Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron
and also Firmicutes Blautia wexlerae, Clostridium bolteae, and Flavonifractor plautii.
Noordine et al., "Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron
and Faecalibacterium prausnitzii influence the production of mucus glycans and the development of goblet cells in the colonic epithelium of a gnotobiotic model rodent," BMC Biology, vol.
For instance, fermentation of dietary fructans is higher when gnotobiotic mice were co-colonized with Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron
and Methanobrevibacter smithii than the mice colonized with only B.
Specifically, inoculation of Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron
in humans and mice promoted expression of genes involved in nutrient absorption, mucosal barrier integrity, angiogenesis, and xenobiotic metabolism [18, 19].
Tissue cultures revealed a polymicrobial mixture of Parabacteroides distasonis, Prevotella melaninogenica, and Fusobacterium nucleatum, while his blood cultures grew Bacteroides thetaiotaomicron
. He was treated with intravenous piperacillin/tazobactam (Sandoz, Princeton, NJ) and linezolid (Pfizer, Inc., New York, NY).
