Group A streptococcus
is not the only strain of bacteria that is doing the rounds in Japan, threatening the lives of the people.
4,18) Accordingly, these genetic similarities result in Group A streptococcus
and Group G streptococcus sharing similar clinical manifestations, including skin and soft tissue infections, pharyngitis, bacteremia, and toxic shock-like syndrome.
Musser, chair of the Department of Pathology and Genomic Medicine at the Houston (Texas) Methodist Research Institute and director for the Center for Molecular and Translational Human Infectious Disease Research at Houston Methodist Hospital, the collaborative research showed, at the precise nucleotide level, genetic changes that contributed to large epidemics of group A streptococcus
The diseases caused by Group A Streptococcus
range from pyoderma to severe invasive infections [3,4] and the post streptococcal acute rheumatic fever and acute glomerular nephritis ), two potentially serious non-suppurative complications.
Intraoperative specimens taken from her during debridement cultured group A Streptococcus
Overall, the OIA MAX test identified group A streptococcus
in 148 of the 363 (40.
According to data obtained from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), these serotypes are believed to be responsible for causing the vast majority of group A streptococcus
related diseases in North America.
With the support of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, scientists have determined the genetic sequence, or DNA code, for more than 95 percent of the group A streptococcus
Streptococcus pyogenes had grown resistant to erythromycin, an antibiotic commonly prescribed for people who are allergic to penicillin but who have a respiratory or skin infection caused by group A streptococcus
It has been known for many years that group A streptococcus
developed resistance to erythromycin; this was a problem in Japan over 20 years ago but has not been a big problem in the United States.
The present Competitive Intelligence Report about Pneumococcla and Streptococcal Vaccines provides a competitor evaluation in the field of prophylactic vaccines against infection caused by streptococcus pneumoniae (pneumococcus), Group A Streptococcus
(GAS) or Group B Streptococcus (GBS) as of October 2012.
1 April 2014 - Japanese Otsuka Pharmaceutical Co Ltd, part of Otsuka Holdings (TYO:4578), said Tuesday it would introduce in Japan its QuickNavi Strep A rapid test kit for detection of beta-hemolytic group A Streptococcus
on April 14, 2014.

Recurrent bacteremia has not been described for invasive group A Streptococcus
Two genetic tests in development may improve the speed and accuracy of the diagnosis of group A streptococcus
