Clostridium difficile, also known as "CDF/cdf", or "C. diff", is a Gram-positive bacteria of the genus Clostridium that causes severe diarrhea and other intestinal disease when competing bacteria in the gut flora are wiped out by antibiotics. They are anaerobic, spore-forming rods and is the most serious cause of antibiotic-associated diarrhea and potentially to pseudomembranous colitis. C. difficile bacteria naturally resides in the gut of a small percentage of the adult population. Others...

Rotavirus is the most common cause of diarrhea among infants and young children and is one of several viruses that cause the stomach flu. It is in the family Reoviridae and is a genus of double-stranded RNA. Most children have been infected by the age of five. Each infection builds on previous immunity and thus subsequent infections are less severe and adults are rarely affected. The fives species of the virus are referred to as A, B, C, D, and E. Type A, which is the most common, causes more...

Norovirus is an RNA virus that causes approximately 90% of epidemic non-bacterial outbreaks of gastroenteritis around the world. It may also be responsible for 50% of all foodborne outbreaks of gastroenteritis in the U.S. It can affect people of all ages and is transmitted by food or water that is contaminated, by person-to-person contact, and through aerosolization of the virus and subsequent contamination of surfaces. Immunity is usually incomplete and temporary after infection. People...
