Abstract Salmonella Zega isolated from natural outbreaks that were characterized by high mortality in poultry farms in three Southwestern States of Nigeria was used to inoculate two week-old chicks through different routes in order to determine and compare the clinical signs, pathological and immunohistochemical changes in each route of infection. The birds were divided into 4 groups of 25 each as groups A (orally inoculated), B (intraperitoneally inoculated), C (inoculated per cloaca) and D (uninoculated control). All the birds were inoculated with 0.2 ml of 1 × 108 cfu of the bacteria....

Foodborne diseases (FBDs) are infections of the gastrointestinal tract caused by foodborne pathogens (FBPs) such as bacteria (Salmonella, Listeria monocytogenes and Shiga toxin-producing E. coli (STEC)) and several viruses, but also parasites and some fungi. Artificial intelligence (AI) and its sub-discipline machine learning (ML) are re-emerging and gaining an ever increasing popularity in the scientific community and industry, and could lead to actionable knowledge in diverse ranges of sectors including epidemiological investigations of FBD outbreaks and antimicrobial resistance (AMR). As genotyping using whole-genome se...

BOSTON (CBS) — The Massachusetts Department of Public Health issued a warning after seeing a spike in cases of a foodborne illness called Cyclospora. There have been more than 100 cases since May 1, the majority of those falling in the greater Boston area. For comparison, there have been 18 to 33 cases in each of the last three years. The illness is caused by eating a parasite that has historically been linked to imported fresh produce, such as raspberries, basil, and snow peas. The DPH has not linked this outbreak with a particular food. “Individual cases are usually associated with travel to warmer countries ...

Authors: Poonchareon K, Pulsrikarn C, Nuanmuang N, Khamai P Abstract Salmonella enterica Serotype 4,[5],12:i:-, a monophasic variant of S. Typhimurium, with high virulence and multidrug resistance is distributed globally causing pathogenicity to both humans and domesticated animals. BOX-A1R-based repetitive extragenic palindromic-PCR (BOX)-PCR proved to be superior to three other repetitive element-based PCR typing methods, namely, enterobacterial repetitive intergenic consensus (ERIC)-, poly-trinucleotide (GTG)5-, and repetitive extragenic palindromic (REP)-PCR (carried out under a single optimized amplification c...
