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

However, outbreaks of Salmonella spp. in raw almonds have led to reduced consumer confidence in the nut industry. Regulatory standards established by the FDA require almonds destined for consumption in the US to undergo a process treatment that reduces Salmonella spp., by 4.0 log10 CFU/g.

Sonali Vadi, Vishal PeshattiwarIndian Journal of Critical Care Medicine 2018 22(2):116-118 Fondaparinux, a pentasaccharide administered for heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), can lead to the occurrence of thrombocytopenia. This patient underwent aortic stent graft placement for Salmonella paratyphi A-infected abdominal aortic aneurysm. Fondaparinux was administered for anticoagulation that led to a dramatic decline in his platelet counts. Investigations revealed HIT profile, PF4/heparin by particle gel immunoassay to be positive. Fondaparinux, a prescribed anticoagulant for HIT can paradoxically predispose to thrombocytopenia.

In a bacterial reverse mutation pre-incubation study, Salmonella typhimurium strains TA100, TA1535, TA98, and TA1537 and Escherichia coli WP2 uvrA were treated with aspartame at concentrations of up to 5000 μg/plate with or without metabolic activation and showed no mutagenic potential. Similarly, in vivo micronucleus testing of aspartame following gavage administration (500&ndas...

In this study, a sseK1 deletion mutant of S. enteritidis was constructed and its biological characteristics were examined. It was found that the sseK1 deletion mutant did not affect the growth, adherence and invasion of Salmonella enteritidis when compared to the wild-type S. enteritidis. However, the mutant showed decreased formation of biofilm and significantly reduced intracellular survival of bacteria in activated mouse peritoneal macrophages, as well as showed reduced pathogenicity to a murine model by increasing the lethal dose 50% (LD50) value and decreasing the proliferation ratio of bacteria in vivo. Taken togethe...

The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of the natural safety high antimicrobial compounds on egg yolk protein structure and function. Three different concentrations have been evaluated from: trans-cinnamaldehyde, thymol, menthol or vanillin on egg yolk by measuring the antimicrobial activity, Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR), secondary protein structure, surface hydrophobicity, zeta-potential, foaming and color properties. Results showed that by mixing yolk with 0.1% of thymol and trans-cinnamaldehyde, the antimicrobial activity increased significantly (P < 0.05) to 92.18 ± 3.26; 98.95 &p...

Yam Chlorine dioxide (ClO2) is an antimicrobial compound used in fresh produce sanitation. Compared to its aqueous form, gaseous ClO2 has an enhanced antimicrobial effect. This research proposed a novel generating method of ClO2(g) that utilized carbon dioxide and moisture naturally released from tomato during respiration to react with sodium chlorite for ClO2(g) generation. The results showed that the generated ClO2(g) not only effectively reduced the surface-inoculated Salmone...

In this study, we tested farm vegetables and agricultural water for the presence of foodborne pathogens, and evaluated farming practices of vegetable farms in Rwanda. Farm vegetable samples were found to be contaminated with foodborne pathogens at considerably high rate (overall 15/99 = 15%). Specifically, the prevalence of pathogens in farm vegetables varied from 1.0% (1/99) for Listeria monocytogenes, 3.0% (3/99) for thermo-tolerant Campylobacter spp., 5.1% (5/99) for Salmonella spp. to 6.1% (6/99) pathogenic Escherichia coli. In agricultural water from rivers, lakes, lagoons, ground and marshlands, prevalence of DNA...
