Part Description

LP35836-3   Clostridium botulinum toxin B botB gene
Clostridium botulinum is a gram positive, anaerobic bacterium that produces a potent neurotoxin that binds to presynaptic nerve terminals preventing release of acetylcholine, blocking neurotransmission. C. botulinum Toxin types A, B, E, F can produce severe, potentially fatal illness in humans. Types C and D are pathogenic in avians, and the pathogenicity of type G is unknown. Illness can occur as foodborne botulism which occurs when a person ingests pre-formed toxin that leads to illness within a few hours to days. Foodborne botulism is a public health emergency because the contaminated food may still be available to other persons besides the patient. Infant botulism occurs in a small number of susceptible infants each year who become infected C. botulinum bacteria grow in their intestinal tract. Wound botulism occurs when open skin lesions or wounds are infected with C. botulinum that secretes the toxin. C. botulinum and the associated toxins are on the Department of Health and Human Services and the USDA list of Select Agents that could be used as weapons of bioterrorism.

Change Reason
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.; Removed parentheses around the gene name in the Component based on the current LOINC model.; Updated Answer list type from NORMATIVE to EXAMPLE because the Answers in the list (Positive, Negative) are only examples of possible answers and not an exclusive list
Order vs. Observation
Both
