Genotypic characterization of Enterococcus species isolated from the oral cavity and their pattern of antibiotic susceptibility

by performing specific gene uniplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for E. faecalis and E. faecium as previously described [ 3 ]. Identification of putative virulence genes; efaA (gene for endocarditis), gelE (gene for gelatinase), ace (gene for collagen binding antigen), asa (gene for aggregation substance), cylA (gene for cytolysin activator), and esp (gene for surface adhesin) of E. faecalis and E. faecium were performed as described previously ( Table 1 ) .

disinfectants). The spores may persist in the gut after eradication of the vegetative form, generating recurrences of the disease. The virulence of C. diff is determined by the toxins A (TcdA) and B (TcdB), which are among the most aggressive bacterial toxins known ( 4 ). About 60% of healthy adults have detectable serum levels of antibodies (immunoglobulins IgA and IgG) against A and B toxins ( 5 ). High levels of IgG against TcdB are associated with a milder form of disease in patients with active infection ( 4 ). High levels of antibodies against TcdA are noted in
