Hospital ‘superbug’ colonizes colon

A mutation turns a common hospital bacterium into a deadly superbug that kills increasing numbers of hospital patients worldwide.

The superbug accounts for an estimated $3.2 billion each year in health care costs in the United States alone.

Lyras says C. difficile, which is able to colonize the colon when antibiotics have wiped out protective bacteria in the gut, causes a range of bowel disease symptoms, from mild diarrhea to more chronic forms.
