Abstract

Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) publications have advanced in 2010 at a pace paralleling the increased frequency and severity of clinical infection. Both toxins A and B are essential virulence factors, pcr diagnostic testing is rapid, sensitive and specific, and recurrent CDI can be prevented using monoclonal antibodies to toxins A and B.
