Roggentin et al. Sialidases produced by these three clostridia were bound to polyclonal antibodies raised against the respective enzymes and immobilized onto microtiter plates.

Applied to nine samples from patients, there was a high correlation between the results of the immunoassay and the bacteriological analysis of the infection. The onset of gas gangrene may occur between 1 and 6 hours after injury or an operation and begins with severe and sudden pain in the infected area before the clinical signs appear.

This seemingly disproportionate pain in a clinically still normal area must make the clinician highly suspicious for a developing gas gangrene, especially after trauma or an operation. The body temperature is initially normal but than rises very quickly. The skin overlying the wound in the early phases appears shiny and tense and then becomes dusky and progresses to a bronze discoloration.

The infection can advance at a rate of 6 inches per hour. Any delay in recognition or treatment may be fatal. Hemorrhagic bullae or vesicles may also be noted.

A thin, sero-sanguinolent exudate with a sickly, sweet odor is present. Swelling and edema of the infected area is pronounced. The muscles appear dark red to black or greenish. They are noncontractile, and do not bleed when cut. Crepitus is usually present as well. The acute problem in gas gangrene is not normal tissue or already necrotic tissue, but the rapidly advancing phlegmon in between, which is caused by the continuous production of alpha toxin in infected but still viable tissue.

Since van Unnik showed that a tissue PO2 of mmHg is necessary to stop toxin production completely, the only way to achieve this is to start hyperbaric oxygen therapy as soon as possible.

An initial fasciotomy may be undertaken, but lengthy and extensive procedures in these very ill patients can usually be postponed, depending on how rapidly HBO2 therapy can be initiated. Debridement of necrotic tissue can be performed between HBO2 treatments and should be delayed until clear demarcation between dead and viable tissues can be seen. The commercial anticrotalic serum 1, from Instituto Butantan was used to evaluate its capacity to recognize the venoms and their fractions using antihorse polyclonal antibodies peroxidase-labeled 1, as secondary antibody.

Negative control C- : non-sensitized wells.

The arrow indicates crotamine-positive venom and fractions. Inset panel — whole chromatographic profile without magnification Fractionation of the venom pool resulted in 44 fractions Fig.

The fractions 0, 35, 36 and 37 showed the lowest absorbance signals and fractions 19, 21, 22, 39 and 42 the highest absorbances Fig. MW: molecular weight. In the last decades, this methodology has been used for several purposes, such as determining the potency of AVs [ 37 , 38 ] and detecting levels of antigens and antibodies in body fluids of patients who are victims of envenoming [ 39 ]. Furthermore, antivenomic studies may provide information of which components of a venom can be recognized by AV.

Here it is important to mention that to have an efficient neutralizing effect the AV does not need to recognize all the venom components indeed many components can be non-toxic to humans [ 40 , 41 ].

Moreover, antivenomic can indirectly show the relative immunogenicity of the venom components for immunized animals [ 27 ]. Indeed, many studies demonstrated controversial ideas in this respect [ 42 , 43 ]. However, ELISA appears to correlate well with both parameters: antibodies concentration and affinity. On the other hand, concerning venom fractions Fig. We considered that this variation can be a result of two different factors.

According to our previous proteomic analysis [ 32 ], fraction 0 do not interact with the column represents 2.

Fractions 35, 36 and 37 correspond to 0. Therefore, they are in very small proportions in the venom, justifying the low concentration of antibodies in AV. On the other hand, fractions 39 0. This may be justified by the fact that both are composed by toxins of high molecular masses and, consequently, with greater immunogenic potential. Nine different molecules were identified in fraction 39 [ 32 ], but those that are present in larger proportions Fig. Interestingly, the unique crotamine-positive venom number 3 was efficiently recognized by AV Fig.

It is able to cause myotoxicity, acting on muscle fibers, depolarizing cells [ 45 ] and leads to extension and induction of paralysis of the hind paws of mice, since it acts by blocking potassium channels [ 46 ]. Despite emergency treatment, the animal died in only a few minutes. Colonies suggestive of Clostridium spp. All rights reserved.


Keywords: Clostridium septicum Gas gangrene Canine 1. Clostridium septicum, Clostridium perfringens type A, Clostridium chauvoei, Clostridium sordellii and Clostridium novyi type A, alone or combined, are responsible for malignant edema and gas gangrene.

Clostridial myositis is often recognized as an acute, generally fatal toxemia in cattle [1], horses [2], sheep and goats [3], and pigs [4], but it is considered to be rare in companion animals [5].

When etiological procedures have been performed, they have been based on phenotypic methods using isolation, biochemical and morphological characteristics [7,8], which are considered to be laborious and time consuming, require trained personnel, and may provide inaccurate results [1].

This paper describes an unusual myositis by C.

Clinical examination revealed a cutaneous abscess in the left foreleg and several rounded lesions on the abdominal and limb areas, which are symptoms compatible with myiasis. Furthermore, the animal showed weak, dyspnea and fever Although now AV recognizes crotamine, the low recognition of crotamine-positive fraction 2 could indicate low concentration or low affinity antibodies to crotamine in AV.

The other exotoxins are synergistic and enhance the rapid spread of infection by destroying, liquefying, and dissecting healthy tissue. Manipulation of the limb was extremely painful, but no other injuries were apparent. In the multimicrobial gas gangrene model, the additon of HBO2 to surgery tended to reduce mortality, but the difference between the groups was not statistically significant. However convincing CoreCivic's employees to become vaccinated or demonstrate proof of immunity was much more difficult, he said.

This opinion was based on the results published until Moreover, the continued production of smallpox vaccine in animals and the production of antitoxins in horses prompted anti-vivisectionists to oppose vaccination. Gangrena gaseosa y otras infecciones por clostridios Harrison These venom variations may difficult the treatment of victim, due to a serum that does not recognize all the components of venom, not neutralizing them, thus reducing its effectiveness.
