Part Description

LP14920-0   Clostridioides difficile toxin B
Clostridium difficile toxin B is a toxin produced by the bacteria Clostridium difficile. C. difficile produces two major kinds of toxins that are very potent and lethal; an enterotoxin (Toxin A) and a cytotoxin (Toxin B, this protein). Early studies suggested that toxin A (also known as TcdA) is the major toxin protein causing antibiotic-associated diarrhea (AAD); however, within the last decade it has been shown that Toxin B (or TcdB) plays a more important role in disease than anyone had forecasted. Toxin B has been identified as the major virulence factor that causes the opening of tight junctions of intestinal epithelial cells, which enables toxin to increase vascular permeability and induce hemorrhaging.

The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016; Updated genus name from Clostridium to Clostridioides based on current (2019) accepted nomenclature for this genus [PMID:27370902].
