Can normal flora cause disease?
Normal flora cannot cause a "disease". But if normal flora is disrupted it can become a pathogen and then cause infection. Some diseases, like diabetes, can disrupt normal flora and cause infection, especially yeast infections on the skin or in the vagina of women.
Normal flora, if disrupted, can multiply and turn into pathogens that cause infection. It does not become a disease, but rather becomes an infection. An example of normal flora becoming an infection is when women douche too frequently and normal yeast flora multiples and becomes a vaginal yeast infection.
The presence of normal flora helps prevent disease. This normal flora is important in the colon, vagina, and on the skin.
Bacteria which are part of the normal flora may cause disease when the immune system is compromised This ailment is called an?
infectious disease i think
In broad-spectrum, normal flora are not invasive and do not usually cause disease. They occupy niches that supply their requirements for nutrients, oxygen and space to reproduce. They may provide some benefits in unknown vitamins, or some discomfort as they produce gas from undigested food.
Yes and no, some bacteria are considered normal flora, which means they normally reside within your body without involving an immune response in healthy individuals. However, if the normal flora is altered, or the immune system is suppressed, any bacteria can become an opportunistic pathogen and illicit an immune response. There are also other certain bacteria which cause disease no matter where they harbor (i.e. Bacillus anthracis, a.k.a anthrax). There are also certain areas of… Read More
The throat is not sterile and normally has some bacteria in it. This is called the normal flora. This statement is generally found on the results of a throat culture where no disease causing bacteria were found.
Yes, usual flora, normal flora, and typical flora are all normal results.
Bacterial vagnosis is not a viral disease. It's an imbalance in the normal flora of the vagina. It occurs when the normal, protective bacteria die off and the "bad" bacteria take over.
One benefit of normal flora in the large intestine is the flora helps fight bacteria that might cause illness or pain. The large intestine has a very important job to do to maintain good health.
candida albicans are a type of yeast (fungus) that grow as normal flora on the human body, but can cause varying symptoms if their growth is not in the normal range of human bodily flora
there ara no microbial normal flora in the csf
You said that in your answer too. As the flora is normal, there is no harm
Everyone has "normal flora". Normal flora exists in the body, on the skin, and in every body opening. Your mouth's normal flora is likely different than the normal flora of your mother, father, siblings, cousins, and every unrelated person. That normal flora protects you from becoming ill or infected every time you come in contact with a micro-organism. People are also carriers of certain microorganisms. One person's body carries germs that may--or may not--have made… Read More
Human (normal) gut flora are bacterium largely beneficial to our health and nutrition. These flora are regarded to produce Vitamins B & K. Normal flora also play an important role from birth in the human immune system.
Gray matter is a normal part of the brain, not a disease.
Archaea share some characteristics with known pathogens that may reflect the potential to cause disease. Such characteristics include ample access to a host (i.e., opportunity) and capabilities for long-term colonization and coexistence with endogenous flora in a host. The detection of anaerobic archaea in the human colonic, vaginal, and oral microbial flora demonstrates their ability to colonize the human host. Details regarding their survival in such human niches, including human immune system evasion and competition… Read More
How does normal flora and transient flora differwhat is a surgeon trying to accomplish with a 10 minute scrub with a brush followed by an antiseptic?
Normal flora exists on the skin as a normal product of skin processes in the form of bacteria such as staphylococcus. Transient flora exists on the skin but does not survive there for long.
Any organism that changes, competes with or destroys the normal flora of your body can cause inwanted health effects. Examples... Digestive tract flora is altered then things like diharrea occur
Cryptococcus neoformans is part of normal micro-flora in the GIT of birds, but it can cause fungal meningitis in human.
In general, your "normal" skin flora protect you from "rogue" flora which might do you harm.
Normal flora is bacteria and yeast normally found on the skin and in every body orifice (or opening, such as the mouth, ears, rectum, vagina). A newborn carries the flora of his/her mother but soon develops his/her own flora. Flora is present on our bodies until we die. We can disrupt the balance of normal flora, such as when women douche too frequently, and thus the microorganisms begin to multiply and become pathogens.
Humans have many organisms in and on their body that do not cause disease. These are called normal flora. We find them on our skin, in our noses and mouths, and in our intestines. They are harmless to humans because we are well-adapted to them; they benefit from us, and we benefit from them. If these bacteria or fungi end up in the wrong place, they can cause disease - for example, if our colon… Read More
how does residental normal flora protect the body against pathogens
Flora exists in various parts of the human body, in both men and women. Vaginal flora, or microbiome, in normal levels has no disadvantage. It helps the vagina stay "normal", clean and healthy.
A for instance would be your normal complement of Escherichia coil. Outside their small intestine environment the usually beneficial symbiont could initiate a fatal infection.
they might kill the bacteria in your body that belong there and when the good bacteria are dead it might cause diarrhea or other things
Yes. Some of the beneficial bacteria in the gut will die and may cause digestive issues.
Anything that can disrupt the normal vaginal flora, including bathing in bleach, can increase the risk of bacterial vaginosis.
E. coli is a gram negative bacteria. It is a normal flora in humans i.e., it resides as enteric organisms without causing any defects in a healthy individual. In Immunocompromised or in persons with weakened immune system it would cause disease hence it is known as opportunistic pathogen.
Normal flora is present throughout the body and on all areas of the skin. Every body orifice (opening) contains normal flora: the mouth, ears, vagina, and rectum. E-Coli exists in the intestines. The skin contains a variety of flora that can turn into pathogens under the right conditions.
Yes, normal microbial flora can become virulent or pathogenic if the conditions are right. On outside of body normal flora is harmless, if it was to be ingested it would take the opportunity to do as much damage as possible.
Hemoglobin is a normal component of a red blood cell, and is not a pathogen.
Pelvic inflammatory disease almost certainly will not kill you. While it may cause chronic disease and pain, death is not a normal outcome.
Typically, when one says "I have an infection" they mean to say "I have a disease", however the latter is not quite so socially acceptable. In fact, we are all "infected" with a variety of microorganisms throughout our entire lives. Incredibly, our bodies are actually composed of more bacterial cells than human cells; while the human body is made up of about 1013 human cells, we harbor near 1014 bacteria. This group of organisms, traditionally… Read More
Production of insulin is by the beta cells in the pancreas. This is a normal process of the body and is not considered a disease. When it does not supply an appropriate amount then it is a disease called diabetes.
The name of bacteria which normal inhabit the body are called normal flora. The list of these bacteria is quite lengthy. Is there a system in the body in which you are looking for the normal flora names?
the normal flora of mouth are the bacteria and other microorganisms that live normally in the mouth and some of it are harmful (opportunistic organisms )
A doctor will determine bacterial infections. There are normal flora in the body and a shift in this flora could suggest infection.
Substantia nigra isn't a pathogen; it's a normal part of your body.
No, it's just shedding, which is normal for most dogs.
There are some bacteria that can cause intestinal disease. All humans have bacteria in their intestine but the bacteria is a good thing. One of the most prevalent bacteria in the human GI tract is E. coli. There are different strains of E. coli and not all of them are pathogenic. The bacteria inside the human GI tract is "normal Flora" and is beneficial to humans.
Normal skin flora is a combination of many types of micro-organisms, including bacteria, viruses and yeast. When a wound occurs, some "normal flora" are introduced into the wound, especially in a penetrating wound such as a stabbing or shooting. When a wound culture is performed, the pathologist looks for "normal flora" which could become pathogens if the organisms begin to multiply, especially since those organisms of the normal flora are now in a place they… Read More
because it is good for your heart and too much of it can give you a heart attack that's why normal flora is important. Kelly Rolfe website used: wiki.answers.com
Use of antibiotics, specially broad spectrum antibiotics may kill the normal vaginal flora and may cause growth of pathogenic bacteria. Which may lead to bacterial vaginosis. But this is not probably documented.
When humans disrupt the normal flora on their bodies, microorganisms can multiply and become pathogens. One of the best examples is when women douche too frequently, and change the normal Ph in the vagina. Yeast is one of the main organisms that then multiply. Another example is that the normal flora can sometimes multiply with certain diseases, such as diabetes. Again, yeast is a big culprit.
also called microflora, indigenous flora, normal flora, microbiota, the variety of nonpathogenic microorganisms that normally permanently colonize various parts of the body
refer to the microorganism that are present even in state of normal health.
