Abstract

Shigella is the major cause of bacillary dysentery worldwide, especially in developing countries. There are several virulence factors essential for the organism to be virulent which are generally present in the virulence plasmid and on chromosomal pathogenicity islands. The present stud...read more

Virulence Factors

Virulence factors are molecules that are produced by organisms including bacteria, viruses, and fungi. They assist the organism in colonization, dissemination, and enhance the ability to survive in harsh environments and evade the host immune system.

Shigellosis

Shigellosis is an infection of the intestines caused by Shigella bacteria. Signs and symptoms may range from mild abdominal discomfort to full-blown dysentery characterized by cramps, diarrhea, with slimy-consistent stools, fever, blood, pus, or mucus in stools or tenesmus. Discover the latest research on shigellosis here.
