Bochner, B. and X. Lei. 2015. United States Patent Application 20150374786

Abstract

The present invention is related to compositions and methods to treat, ameliorate and/or prevent morbidity and/or mortality from microbial infections. In particular, bacterial infections that are associated with the production and release of bacterial toxins. For example, many Clostridia bacteria, such as Clostridium difficile, release toxins resulting in tissue and organ damage and death, even after antibiotic therapy that either reduces or eliminates the bacteria. In particular, various peptides, polypeptides, and proteins are disclosed herein that either inactivateClostridium difficile toxin and/or reduce Clostridium difficile toxin production.

*Note:  Chicken anti-Clostridium difficile toxins used in this publication were manufactured by Gallus Immunotech Inc.
