Eleven Clostridium perfringens type C strains isolated from fatal cases of hemorrhagic enterotoxemia of Canadian calves, a piglet, and a foal were studied for the production of soluble antigens. All the isolates from calves and a foal failed to pr...

Clostridium perfringens is a gram-positive anaerobic bacillus that is commonly part of the microbiota of humans and animals. It is considered a common enteric pathogen, but the pathogenesis and the predisposing factors of the disease commonly diff...

Sinha, M.; Willinger, H.; Trcka, J., 1975: Studies on the occurrence of Clostridium perfringens in domestic animals (horse, cattle, pig, dog, cat, fowl). Cl. perfringens type A organisms were recovered from the faeces of 3 out of 30 horses (10%) in numbers of 101/g. Two of three isolates were found to be toxic. In cattle, perfringens was found in 37% of the animals examined (20 strains); in most an...

Clostridium perfringens isolates are currently classified into one of five biotypes on the basis of the differential production of alpha-, beta-, epsilon- and iota-toxins. Different biotypes are associated with different diseases of man and animal...

The production of Clostridium (C.) perfringens toxins in the intestine is an important cause of enteritis and enterotoxaemia in livestock. In the present study, the alpha toxin and the genes encoding beta2 and epsilon toxin could be frequently det...

The cpb2 gene of beta 2-toxigenic Clostridium perfringens isolated from horses, cattle, sheep, human and pigs was sequenced.
