Eubacterium

 [u″bak-tē´re-um]
a genus of gram-positive, anaerobic, rod-shaped organisms occurring as saprophytes in soil and water. They are normal flora of the skin and body cavities and occasionally cause soft tissue infection. Species include E. alactoly´�ticum, E. len´tum, and E. limo´sum.

Eubacterium

(yū'bak-tēr'ē-ŭm),
A genus containing more than 40 species of anaerobic, non-spore-forming, nonmotile bacteria containing straight or curved gram-positive rods that usually occur singly, in pairs, or in short chains. Usually these organisms attack carbohydrates. They may be pathogenic, and rarely are associated with intraabdominal sepsis in humans. The type species is Eubacterium limosum.

Eu·bac·te·ri·um

(yū'bak-tēr'ē-ŭm)
A genus of anaerobic, non-spore-forming, nonmotile bacteria containing straight or curved gram-positive rods that usually occur singly, in pairs, or in short chains. Usually these organisms attack carbohydrates. They are often associated with mixed infections involving the abdomen, pelvis, or genitourinary tract. The type species is E. limosum.

To test the performance of our approach, we launched probes design for 10 prokaryotic genus groups simultaneously ("Eubacterium" "Citrobacter," "Propionibacterium," "Neisseria" "Campylobacter," "Arcanobacterium" "Haemophilus," "Kaistobacter" "Bacteriovorax," and "Riemerella"), using the following parameters:
It is clinically effective in trichomoniasis, amebiasis, and giardiasis, as well as in a variety of infections caused by obligate anaerobic bacteria, including Bacteroides, Clostridium, Fusobacterium, Peptococcus, Peptostreptococcus, Eubacterium, and microaerophilic bacteria such as Helicobacter and Campylobacter spp.
Three of these 6 false-negative samples were due to the presence of Eubacterium lentum as identified by the reference standard method, an identification that was missed each time this organism was presented.
The finely ground almonds significantly increased the populations of bifidobacteria and Eubacterium rectale, resulting in a higher prebiotic index (4.43) than was found for the commercial prebiotic fructooligosaccharides (4.08) at 24 h of incubation.
Other bacteria have been identified including their involvement in periodontal disease is unclear such as: Haemophilus aphrophilus, Campylobacter species, Eubacterium and Actinomyces.
We found that finely ground almonds significantly increased the population of bifidobacteria and Eubacterium rectale, resulting in a higher prebiotic index (4.43) compared with the commercial prebiotic fructo-oligosaccharides (4.08) at 24 hour incubation, although no significant differences in the proportions of gut bacteria groups were detected in response to defatted finely ground almonds."
