Evaluation of Piper betle L. Aqueous Extract on Salmonella sp. Isolates from Small Intestine of Quails

Background and Objective: Piper betle L. leaves (beetle leaves) is an example among medicinal plants that could inhibit the growth of Salmonella. This research was aimed to evaluate beetle leaves aqueous extracts ability to inhibit Salmonella sp. by in vivo and in vitro research. Materials and Methods: The research was consisted of three steps. Those steps were finding optimum concentration of extract supplementation, raising the quails and evaluating Salmonella sp. colonies in small intestine of quails which had been given treatment for six weeks. A completely randomized design of seven treatments and three replication was used in this study. The treatments were: P0 = commercial anti-stress supplementation since Day Old Quail (DOQ); P1 = 10% extract supplementation since DOQ; P2 = 20% extract supplementation since DOQ; P3 = 30% extract since DOQ; P4 = 40% extract supplementation since laying period; P5 = 10% extract supplementation since laying period; P6 = 20% extract supplementation since laying period; P7 = 30% extract supplementation since laying period. Data was analyzed with Duncan post hoc test if shows a significant difference (p

Pullorum). The plasmid is 67,685 bp in size and has 72 putative genes. pQJDSal1 harbors a conserved IncX1-type backbone with predicted regions for conjugation, replication and partitioning, as well as a toxin/antitoxin plasmid addiction system. Two regions (A and B) that have not been previous...

Publication date: December 2018Source: LWT, Volume 98Author(s): Min-Jin Jeon, Jae-Won HaAbstractIn many UV sterilization studies, buffer solutions are used for investigating the inactivation mechanisms and evaluating the antimicrobial effect of UV light. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of the type of buffer solution [phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) or peptone water (PW)] on UV inactivation of major foodborne pathogens, including Escherichia coli O157:H7, Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium, and Listeria monocytogenes. A mixed culture cocktail was inoculated in PBS or PW and treated with UV-A, -B, o...

The recent outbreak of Salmonella Agona linked to the consumption of infant formula (powdered formula) has rekindled the attention about the correct procedures for preparation and use of these products. International guidelines have already been published so far, particularly in association with Cronobacter sakazakii in early 2000s. FAO/WHO suggested to reconstitute formula with water at no less than 70°C. We therefore contaminated powdered formula with low levels of Salmonella spp and C sakazakii to evaluate the pathogens inactivation during the formula preparation using water at 70°C. In these conditions we obser...

ConclusionThe results of this study demonstrate that meat products imported from third countries, both legally and illegally, can harbor multiresistantSalmonella enterica. Consequently, these imports could constitute a source for the dissemination of antimicrobial resistant isolates, including those resistant to third-generation cephalosporins and fluoroquinolones.

In this study, three hundred presumptive Salmonella strains isolated from cattle faeces and raw beef samples were subjected to both preliminary and confirmatory tests specific for Salmonella. PCR assays revealed that 100%, 20% and 26.7% of the isolates were positive for 16S rRNA, fliC and fljB gene fragments, respectively. Large proportions (62.4 to 94.3%) of these isolates were multiple antibiotic resistant (MAR) strains that were resistant to three or more antibiotics belonging to different classes. MAR phenotypes Ab1, Ab2, Ab3, Ab7, Ab8, Ab9, Ab26 and Ab27 were dominant among the isolates. Cluster analysis of antibiotic...

This study aimed to investigate the meat quality and safety of chilled pork collected from 45 online stores in China. Total volatile basic nitrogen (TVBN), total viable counts (TVC), and coliform counts of 135 meat samples were analyzed, and the shipment conditions including endpoint temperature, transport time, transport distance and package model were also recorded. Foodborne pathogenic bacteria including Salmonella spp, Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus), methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Listeria Monocytogenes (L. monocytogenes) were also detected. The positive rate of Salmonella spp (13.32%), S. au...

Wu, Xuetong FanABSTRACTThere have been numerous reports on the effectiveness of gaseous chlorine dioxide (gClO2) in inactivating various human pathogens associated with fresh produce. However, studies dealing with both microbial reduction and impact on quality and nutrients of tomatoes are scarce. In the present study, gaseous chlorine dioxide was evaluated for its effectiveness on populations of Salmonella and native microorganisms on grape tomatoes, and impacts on sensory and nutritional quality.

We challenged four-week-old piglets (Duroc × Landrace × Yorkshire crossbred) with Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium LT2 and investigated the peripheral blood miRNA expression profile before treatment (d0) and at 2 days post inoculation (dpi) using deep sequencing technology.

We studied the effects of two Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (host-adapted) strains (14028 and 4/74) and three S. Choleraesuis (non-host-adapted) strains (A50, A45, and B195) in human monocytes between 2 and 24 h postinfection (p.i.) to investigate whether differences in immune response may explain the much higher prevalence of sepsis in individuals infected with S. Choleraesuis. Both serovars significantly increased the production of cytokines associated with acute sepsis (tumor necrosis factor alpha [TNF-α], interleukin β [IL-β], and IL-6), but temporal differences occurred between these serovars...
