Abstract

ubacterium species are found in the mammalian intestinal tract and oral cavity, in addition to the environment (Table 35.1). The genus Eubacterium was originally established to describe a group of fecal bacteria that were considered to be beneŠcial.65 However, some species might be considered to be opportunistic,66,67 even though no primary-disease-causing species of Eubacterium have been isolated and no speciŠc virulence factors have been identiŠed. Since this book covers human bacterial pathogens, only those Eubacterium species that have been found in humans are discussed in detail.
