Disease Causing Microbiota

Yersinia enterocolitica, Salmonella, Shigella, Campylobacter, Clostridium difficile, enterohemorragic Escherichia coli (EHEC), and enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) are the most common pathogenic bacteria in the colon that cause diarrhea. Diarrhea can also occur after oral antibiotic treatment. Poorly absorbed antibiotics change the normal composition of the microbiota in the colon (93). Suppression of the normal microbiota may lead to reduced colonization resistance with subsequent overgrowth of resistant microbiota, yeasts, and Clostridium difficile. This organism produces a protein toxin which causes necrosis and ulceration of the colonic mucosa, called antibiotic-associated hemorrhagic colitis.
