Tends to affect people who have weakened immune systems or chronic lung diseases, particularly cystic fibrosis; a known cause of infections in hospitalised patients.
BCT 61 Clostridium Septicum
Causes gangrene. Generally associated with gastrointestinal or hematologic malignancies. An association exists with colon carcinoma.
BCT 62 Eikenella Corrodens
A commensal of the human mouth and upper respiratory tract. An opportunistic human pathogen, leading to serious diseases such as periodontitis, osteomyelitis, meningitis, empyema, and endocarditis.
BCT 63 Enterococcus Faecalis / Streptococcus Faecalis
Can cause life-threatening infections in humans, especially in the hospital environment. Frequently found in root canal-treated teeth. Can cause endocarditis and bacteremia, urinary tract infections, meningitis, and other infections. Among the main constituents of some probiotic food supplements.
BCT 64 Enterococcus Faecium
Can be commensal in the human intestine, but it may also be pathogenic, causing diseases such as neonatal meningitis.
BCT 65 Fusobacterium Nucleatum
Found in the mouth and upper respiratory tract. A key component of dental plaque. Possible role in periodontal disease and colon cancer. Occasional cause of abscesses and blood infections.
BCT 66 Gemella Morbillorum / Streptococcus Morbillorum
Part of the normal mouth flora.
BCT 67 Group A Streptococcus / GAS
Often found in the throat and on the skin. Illnesses include strep throat and occasionally invasive GAS disease. People may be carriers and experience no health problems themselves
BCT 68 Group B Streptococus /GBS
In new-borns most commonly causes sepsis (infection of the blood), pneumonia and sometimes meningitis. In adults causes bloodstream infections, pneumonia, skin and soft-tissue infections, and bone and joint infections.
BCT 69 Mycobacterium Abscessus
Causes infections of the skin and the soft tissues under the skin. Also a cause of serious lung infections in those with various chronic lung diseases, such as cystic fibrosis. Has been known to contaminate medications and products, including medical devices.
BCT 70 Mycobacterium Intracellulare
Causes lung diseases.
BCT 71 Mycobacterium Marinum
Causes opportunistic infections in humans when the immune system, for example, is compromised already.
BCT 72 Mycoplasma Fermentans
Has been linked to Gulf War Syndrome and rheumatoid arthritis.
BCT 73 Mycoplasma Genitalium
Can be transmitted between partners during unprotected sexual intercourse. Role in genital diseases is still unclear. Believed to be involved in pelvic inflammatory diseases.
BCT 74 Mycoplasma Hominis
Found in the vagina; unclear if it is part of the normal flora. Found in the genito-urinary tract and is considered to be an opportunistic pathogen. Has been associated with post-abortion and post-partum fever.
BCT 75 Mycoplasma Penetrans
Found in the urogenital and respiratory tracts. Has been linked to HIV infections.
BCT 76 Mycoplasma Salivarium
Found in the human mouth; not regarded usually as pathogenic.
BCT 77 Porphyromonas Gingivalis / Bacteroides Gingivalis
Part of the normal flora of the mouth, intestine and urogenital tract. Found in periodontal lesions and associated with adult gingivitis, periodontal disease and mouth abscesses; could be a risk factor for oesophageal cancer.
BCT 78 Prevotella Intermedia / Bacteroides Intermedia / Bacteroides Melaninogenicu
Involved in periodontal infections, including gingivitis and periodontitis.
BCT 79 Propionibacterium Acnes
Lives on the skin and is linked to the skin condition acne. Can cause of chronic back pain. Part of the skin flora present on most healthy adult human skin.
BCT 80 Proteus Mirabilis
Causes 90% of all Proteus infections in humans. Approximately 25% of people have this bacteria in their faeces. Causes problems when urinary tract is disturbed (e.g. after catheterisation).
BCT 81 Salmonella Enterica / Salmonella Choleraesuis
Causes salmonellosis; family members working with cattle or in a veterinary clinic can be source.
BCT 82 Salmonella Typhimurium/ Salmonella Choleraesuis Serotype Typhimurium / Salmonella Typhi-Murium/ Bacillus Typhimurium / Salmonella Typhi-Murium
BCT 83 Serratia Marcescens / Bacterium Prodigosum
Found on the sub-gingival biofilm of teeth. Involved in eye infections. Commonly found in the respiratory and urinary tracts of hospitalised adults and in the gastrointestinal system of children. May cause pneumonia and urinary tract infections. Often found growing in bathrooms as a pink discoloration and slimy film.
BCT 84 Staphylococcus Saprophyticus
Often implicated in urinary tract infections and cystitis.
BCT 85 Stomatococcus Mucilaginosus/ Micrococcus Mucilaginosus / Staphylococcus Salivarius
Part of the normal human oral flora and upper respiratory tract flora.
BCT 86 Streptococcus Salivarius
The principal commensal bacterium of the oral cavity and a normal inhabitant of the upper respiratory tract. The first bacterium that colonises dental plaque, creating favourable conditions for other bacteria.
BCT 87 Treponema Pallidum
Causes diseases such as syphilis.
BCT 88 Ureaplasma Parvum
Can cause male urethritis, suppurative arthritis, adverse pregnancy outcomes, chorioamnionitis (inflammation of membranes in the fetus), surgical wound infections, neonatal meningitis, pelvic inflammatory diseases and pyelonephritis.
BCT 89 Ureaplasma Urelyticum
Part of the normal genital flora of both men and women. It is found in about 70% of sexually active humans. Has been linked to (but not confirmed) non-specific urethritis, infertility, chorioamnionitis, stillbirth, premature birth, and, in the perinatal period, pneumonia, bronchopulmonary dysplasia and meningitis.
BCT 90 Vancomycin-Resistant Enterococci/ VRE
Can live in the human intestines and female genital tract without causing disease; sometimes can cause infections of the urinary tract, the bloodstream, or of wounds associated with catheters or surgical procedures.
BCT 91 Vancomycin-Resistant Staphylococcus / VRSA
A problem for people with other underlying health conditions (such as diabetes and kidney disease), tubes going into their bodies (such as catheters), previous infections with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), and recent exposure to vancomycin, etc.
BCT 92 Vibrio Parahaemolyticus
Found in brackish saltwater and causes gastrointestinal illness (watery diarrhoea often with abdominal cramping, nausea, vomiting, fever and chills). Most people become infected by eating raw or undercooked shellfish, particularly oysters.
BCT 93 Vibrio Vulnificus
Causes an infection (gastrointestinal illness, fever, or shock) often after eating seafood, especially oysters or exposing an open wound to sea water.
