Descriptor Spanish: Traslocación Bacteriana
Descriptor Portuguese: Translocação Bacteriana
Descriptor French: Translocation bactérienne
Entry term(s): Translocation, Bacterial
Tree number(s): G06.099.114
RDF Unique Identifier: https://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D018988
Scope note: The passage of viable bacteria from the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT to extra-intestinal sites, such as the mesenteric lymph node complex, liver, spleen, kidney, and blood. Factors that promote bacterial translocation include overgrowth with gram-negative enteric bacilli, impaired host immune defenses, and injury to the INTESTINAL MUCOSA resulting in increased intestinal permeability. Bacterial translocation from the lung to the circulation is also possible and sometimes accompanies MECHANICAL VENTILATION.
Annotation: coordinate IM with specific bacterium /physiol (IM)
Allowable Qualifiers: DE drug effects
GE genetics
IM immunology
PH physiology
RE radiation effects
