Clostridium difficile is a superbug that can cause serious infections, often in hospitalised patients. The pathogenesis is mostly caused by secreted protein toxins. This video schematically describes how the toxins secreted by the bacteria in the gut can penetrate the cell lining the intestine. This video is based on the research done at the Drug Formulation & Delivery Lab, Institute of Pharmaceutical Sciences, ETHZ.
