CLOSTRIDIUM BOTULINUM species produce neurotoxins. Eight types of toxins have been identified (A-H). Only types A, B, E, and F cause disease in humans while types C and D cause disease in cows, birds, and other animals but not in humans. The "gold standard" for determining toxin type is a mouse bioassay, but A, B, E, and F can now be readily differentiated using PCR. Group I Clostridium botulinum strains that do not produce a botulin toxin are referred to as Clostridium sporogenes.
Botox – the commercial injections are used by millions of people around the world for cosmetic purposes. But botox is not for everyone as it has quite a high price, and the variety of possible side-effects means that it should be avoided. Botulinum toxin is a neurotoxic protein produced by the Clostridium botulinum bacterium. It …
Constipation;... it appears that constipation is almost certainly caused by agents which respond to antibiotics which also kill clostridia. So there is a high chance that a type of a clostridium (clostridia produced neuro-toxins (e.g. Clostridium tetuni, Clostridium botulinum, Clostridium difficile, Clostridium perfringens) and so constipation may be simply a chronic infection with a clostridium that carries a spore and so it is difficult to eradicate with antibiotics.
