Summaries for Neisseria Meningitidis Infection

CDC : 3 Meningococcal disease refers to any illness caused by bacteria called Neisseria meningitidis, also known as meningococcus [muh-ning-goh-KOK-us]. These illnesses are often severe and can be deadly. They include infections of the lining of the brain and spinal cord (meningitis) and bloodstream infections (bacteremia or septicemia). These bacteria spread through the exchange of respiratory and throat secretions like spit (e.g., by living in close quarters, kissing). Doctors treat meningococcal disease with antibiotics, but quick medical attention is extremely important. Keeping up to date with recommended vaccines is the best defense against meningococcal disease.

MalaCards based summary : Neisseria Meningitidis Infection, also known as meningococcal disease, is related to meningococcal meningitis and meningococcemia, and has symptoms including fever and pruritus. An important gene associated with Neisseria Meningitidis Infection is CFP (Complement Factor Properdin), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Innate Immune System and Salmonella infection (KEGG). The drugs Phenytoin and Lactitol have been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include spinal cord, brain and endothelial, and related phenotypes are homeostasis/metabolism and cardiovascular system
