Bacterial Toxins

There are three main forms of bacterial enteric toxin:

Enterotoxin producing excess fluid secretion into the gut (cholera and some types of Escherichia coli) Cytotoxin causing inflammation and mucosal damage (shigella and enterohemorrhagic E. coli) Neurotoxin affecting the nervous system (botulism and staphylococcal toxin)

Some E. coli strains produce toxin; these are dealt with under Invasive Bacteria. Red kidney bean, scombrotoxin and other fish toxins, and heavy metal poisoning are dealt with elsewhere in this book.
