Core Tip Clostridioides difficile (C. difficile) is an opportunistic pathogen which diffusion is progressively increasing worldwide. Among the categories at risk, particularly susceptible are patients with inflammatory bowel diseases, due to altered immunological status and the therapies adopted that favour intestinal dysbiosis and colonization by the germ. Recent in vitro studies also suggest that the infection might be favoured by the strong cytotoxic synergism between C. difficile toxin B and pro-inflammatory cytokines tumour necrosis factor-a and interferon-g. The therapeutic approaches are however still limited, and those presently available rely on antibiotic therapy and faecal transplantation.
