81656-1Campylobacter coli+jejuni tuf gene [Presence] in Stool by NAA with probe detectionActive

Term Description

This test targets the tuf gene that is common to two species in the Campylobacter group, coli and jejuni, and does not distinguish between them. The tuf gene encodes elongation factor Tu. This term was created for, but is not limited in use to, the submitter's BD MAX Enteric Bacterial test kit, which is a diagnostic test for the direct qualitative detection of enteric bacterial pathogens.

Part Descriptions

LP208638-9   Campylobacter coli+jejuni tuf gene
Campylobacter bacteria are a major cause of foodborne diarrheal illness in humans and are the most common bacteria that cause gastroenteritis worldwide. In developed and developing countries, they cause more cases of diarrhea than foodborne Salmonella. Campylobacter are mainly spiral-shaped, S-shaped or curved, rod-shaped bacteria. Currently, there are 17 species and 6 subspecies assigned to the genus Campylobacter, of which the most frequently reported in human diseases are C. jejuni (subspecies jejuni) and C. coli.

LP99310-2   Campylobacter
Campylobacter species is a gram-negative comma or S-shaped motile bacteria. Most infections occur from eating raw or undercooked poultry or by touching a contaminated object. Other sources of Campylobacter include water, animals, and unpasteurized milk. Symptoms begin 2-5 days after being exposed and include bloody diarrhea, fever, abdominal cramps, nausea, and vomiting. Some people are asymptomatic. Campylobacter can spread to the bloodstream and cause life-threatening illness in immunocompromised patients. C jejuni is the primary species found in campylobacter infections. Campylobacter is identified in stool, body tissue, and fluid cultures.[https://www.cdc.gov/campylobacter/faq.html] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
