About Clostridium difficile
One of the most serious problems facing the U.S. healthcare system today is hospital-acquired infections (HAIs) and Clostridium difficile infection is one of the most common and devastating HAIs.  The incidence of C. difficile observed in U.S. healthcare facilities more than doubled approximately every five years since 1999 and the reported mortality rates from C. difficile in the U.S. have more than quadrupled in the last decade to 14,000 per year. Elderly patients exposed to antibiotics, long-term care patients, or those who have a serious underlying illness are at greatest risk to contract the disease. Typical symptoms include diarrhea (which can be severe), fever, nausea, abdominal pain, and dehydration that can lead to life-threatening complications such as shock, megacolon, peritonitis and perforation of the colon.
