Our data and previous reports (10) show that the organism is sometimes misidentified as other a-hemolytic streptococci
by commercial identification systems.
Group G [beta]-hemolytic streptococci
were first identified by Lancefield and Hare in 1935 and were not considered to be pathogenic organisms.
Many studies have examined the association between maternal colonisation with group B streptococci
and pregnancy outcome (2) Group B streptococcus can cause chorioamnionitis and urinary tract infection.
She was therefore given IV ceftriaxone, since beta-lactams have higher efficacy against streptococci
2) This would be especially valuable since these medicines would probably prove to be valuable against other gram positive diseases such as acne, leprosy, Streptococci
, Staphylococcus aureus, anthrax, Listeria monocytogenes, Actinomyces naeslundii, Corynebacterium diphtheriae, Streptococcus agalactiae, Propionibacterium spp.
Group A streptococci
are Gram-positive bacteria, primarily residing in the nose, throat and skin; they are responsible for several illnesses, ranging from mild illnesses (strep throat or skin infections) to severe illnesses (necrotizing fasciitis, or streptococcal toxic shock syndrome).
At the onset and progression of the lesion, species belonging to the Mutans streptococci
group, particularly Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus sobrinus are the main microorganisms found, while Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium dominate in the advanced stages of the disease (4,5).
Presence of mutans streptococci
and various types of lactobacilli in interdental spaces related to development of proximal carious lesions.
pasteurianus is in the subgroup of streptococcus bovis which is one of the D group streptococci
and its previous name is S.
Antimicrobial resistance in Streptococcus pneumoniae, Haemophilus influenzae, Moraxella catarrhalis and group A P-hemolytic streptococci

Researchers said the strain of bacteria most likely to cause cavities is mutans streptococci
2004) screened 48 New York State dairy farms and isolated Streptococci
(69%), Staphylococci (3%), and Gram-negative bacteria (3%).
