In 1889, Ducreyi demonstrated the inoculable nature of chancroid pus of genital lesions. The present genus name H. ducreyi originated in 1921 from Neveu-Lemaire.
H. ducreyi is classified in the Actinobacillus cluster of the Pasteurellaceae. Synonyms of H. ducreyi are Bacillus ulceris cancrosi (Kruse 1896) and Coccobacillus ducreyi (1921). The H. ducreyi genome consists of a single
I.7-Mbp chromosome with 1693 open reading frames (ORFs). One of its virulent strains (35000 HP) has been sequenced completely. Genes with closest homology were found in Haemophilus influenzae and Pasteurella multicoda; however, there is little long-range conservation of the order of genes or ORFs in the chromosome when H. ducreyi is compared to these species. The genes in
H. ducreyi encoding toxic factors such as hemolysin and the cytolethal distending toxin (CDT) are absent in the genomes of other Pasteurellaceae.

The use of dumbbells gives you a much more comprehensive strengthening effect because the workout engages your stabilizer muscles, in addition to the muscle you may be pin-pointing. Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
