ABSTRACT: We sequenced the genomes of 3,615 strains of serotype Emm protein 1 (M1) group AStreptococcus to unravel the nature and timing of molecular events contributing to the emergence, dissemination, and genetic diversification of an unusually virulent clone that now causes epidemic human infections worldwide. We discovered that the contemporary epidemic clone emerged in stepwise fashion from a precursor cell that first contained the phage encoding an extracellular DNase virulence factor (streptococcal DNase D2, SdaD2) and subsequently acquired the phage encoding the SpeA1 variant of the streptococcal pyrogenic exotoxin A superantigen. The SpeA2 toxin variant evolved from SpeA1 by a single-nucleotide change in the M1 progenitor strain before acquisition by horizontal gene transfer of a large chromosomal region encoding secreted toxins NAD+-glycohydrolase and streptolysin O. Acquisition of this 36-kb region in the early 1980s into just one cell containing the phage-encoded sdaD2 and speA2 genes was the final major molecular event preceding the emergence and rapid intercontinental spread of the contemporary epidemic clone. Thus, we resolve a decades-old controversy about the type and sequence of genomic alterations that produced this explosive epidemic. Analysis of comprehensive, population-based contemporary invasive strains from seven countries identified strong patterns of temporal population structure. Compared with a preepidemic reference strain, the contemporary clone is significantly more virulent in nonhuman primate models of pharyngitis and necrotizing fasciitis. A key finding is that the molecular evolutionary events transpiring in just one bacterial cell ultimately have produced millions of human infections worldwide.

Evolution-deniers should man up and reject modern infection treatments:

How Flesh-Eating Strep Bacteria Evolved Into an Epidemic

"Bacteria aren’t kind enough to leave behind a fossil record (save for cyanobacteria), but they’re evolving fast. Really fast. Their short life cycles mean that generations come rapid-fire, adapting through natural selection into the monster pathogens that are currently shrugging off our finest antibiotics.

It’s all the more troubling when we’re dealing with the flesh-eating variety. A new study, published today in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, details the evolution of one such bacteria, group A Streptococcus. By charting its evolution, scientists hope to gain invaluable insights into tackling subsequent generations of these menaces, and to begin to better understand the very nature of epidemics.

You’ve probably caught a strain of group A Streptococcus before, manifesting itself as strep throat. But depending on your immune system and the strain of Strep, you can be affected in many different ways, some of them fatal. “So you can get infections of muscles, you can get infections of cardiac valves, it can go to bone,” said physician Paul Sullam of the University of California, San Francisco Medical Center, who wasn’t involved in the study. “It can also get into your bloodstream. And when it does, it can produce this generalized disturbance of your cardiac function and lung function, something we call septic shock.” It can also lead to something called necrotizing fasciitis, the horrific destruction of soft tissue.

Strep wasn’t always so virulent and aggressive. Back in the early 1980s, it suddenly ramped up into into an epidemic, which continues to this day. And thanks to this new study, we now know exactly how that happened..."

Somewhere along its evolutionary path, a benign microorganism turned into the virulent pathogen that causes necrotizing fasciitis, the “flesh-eating” infection. Despite its name, the bacteria don’t actually eat flesh, rather, they destroy the body’s soft tissue by producing proteins that break down skin, fat, and muscle. And after decades of research, scientists haven’t been able to agree on the genomic alternations that grew into this ongoing, global epidemic.
 

Now, after conducting one of the biggest bacterial genome analyses ever, researchers have pinpointed the nature and timing of key molecular events that caused the drastic switch – which they say occurred in the early 1980s.

Harmless bacteria turned deadly just 30 years ago – now, it kills 500.000 every year http://b4in.org/p1qe

It’s a truly terrifying story, and a truly terrifying disease. The flesh-eating culprit in question is called GAS, or Group A β-hemolytic streptococcus, a highly infective bacteria.

Apart from causing the flesh-eating disease necrotizing fasciitis, GAS is also responsible for a range of less harmful infections. But like most bacteria, it was harmless at one point in its evolution – now, researchers have pinned down when this change happened in order to help prevent future epidemics. Their result? It was just 30 years ago.

After reconstructing their evolutionary history, scientists believe that  these bacteria appeared to have affected humans since the 1980s, after evolving from a less harmful streptococus strain.

Lead researcher James Musser of the Methodist Hospital Research Institute was delighted with the results, which analyzed the genetic background of a total of 3,600 streptococcus strains in order to figure out when the bacteria went rogue.

“This is the first time we have been able to pull back the curtain to reveal the mysterious processes that gives rise to a virulent pathogen.”

For those who knew Laura (WebWawa or Lawawawa or just Wawa), she passed today.

She had been struggling with adenocarcinoma for a while. Initial chemo, and then Tarceva maintenance gave her several more years. It re-metastasized and got into her brain. She'd had surgery and stereoscopic radiation treatment, which seemed to help at first. Then, they found two rapidly growing tumors near her vision center in her brain, and she elected to go through whole-brain radiation treatments. Ultimately, this, like any other massive radiation, was a big burden on her blood cell counts. That lead to infections and weakness, that ultimately led to her passing.

Laura was very sweet and had a great smile. For a while, she had bring pink hair, which was fun. She was always happy, and creative. She was blessed to have a very supporting family and a loving husband. Their loss will be great.

It pretty much sucks all the way around, but she was wonderful and made lots of people feel happy. We were all lucky to know her.

You will be missed. :(

Dear Friends,

This is Laura's sister, Leslie. It is difficult for me to write this and I am sure it will be difficult for you to read, but I need to let you know that Laura passed away around 3:30 this afternoon.

The doctors in Dallas determined that Laura had necrotizing fasciitis and her body was not able to defend itself against such a voracious disease. My mom and I both made it to Dallas in time to be there with Trey and her wonderful oncologist, Dr. Nadler, when she passed away. She left this world with the same grace and peace she exuded each day that she lived in it. The loss of Laura leaves a void in our lives that I can only hope we will be able to fill somehow with all of our wonderful memories of her.

We will not be having a traditional service for Laura because Laura was not a traditional girl. Our thought right now is to do something simple at the Bonnie J. Addario Lung Cancer Foundation walk on Saturday, May 3 in Dallas. She was really looking forward to walking this event with her team of Wawa's Warriors. We will now be walking in her memory. I will post info as I know it.

If you would like to register to join her team to walk or make a contribution to the walk in Laura's memory, below is the link to her personal page. I hope it works. I don't know how to work Laura's samsung phone very well.

Thank you all for your love and support. Each and every one of us is a Wawa Warrior in some way.

Love,
Leslie on behalf of my mom, my dad, and Trey

13-year-old Trey Lauren is at Seattle Children's Hospital battling necrotizing fasciitis, a form of flesh-eating bacterial infection that not only threatened to take his leg, but his life.

The term “flesh-eating” disease (necrotizing fasciitis) is a scary and often misunderstood term. Click below to read my latest article to understand this disease and to set the facts straight.
