State Health Agency Urges Safety When Processing, Cooking, and Eating Wild Game

As Wisconsin ’s gun deer season gets underway, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) wants to remind hunters, their families, and anyone who serves or eats wild game or birds tomake sure the meat is handled properly and cooked thoroughly before it is eaten. “Wild game meat, including venison, bear meat, and wild fowl may contain a variety of bacteria and parasites that can cause illness in humans if the meat is not properly cooked,” cautioned...(see release)

In this study, the effects of dietary administration of lactic acid bacteria (LAB) (Enterococcus faecalis Y17 and Pediococcus pentosaceus G11) on growth performance and immune responses of mud crab were assessed. Both strains (Y17 and G11) showed an inhibitory activity against bacterial pathogens (Aeromonas hydrophila, Vibrio parahaemolyticus, Vibrio alginolyticus, Staphylococcus aureus, and β Streptococcus), and a wide pH tolerance range of 2–10. In vivo, mud crabs were fed a control diet and experimental diets supplemented with 109 cfu g−1 diet either Y17 or G11 for 6 weeks before subjecting to a cha...

ConclusionDifferences were noted between parasite species found in Mediterranean Europe and northern Europe, where a range of zoonotic parasites were endemic alongside sanitation-related parasites. We suggest that the scarcity of zoonotic parasites in southern Europe in the medieval period may reflect contrasts in climate between northern and southern Europe.SignificanceThe repeated identification of roundworm eggs suggests that al-Andalus was less hygienic than historically depicted. We did not note a difference between parasites found in Muslim and Christian regions of Iberia, and the predominance of parasites spread by ...

by Emir Salas-Sarduy, Lionel Ur án Landaburu, Adriana K. Carmona, Juan José Cazzulo, Fernán Agüero, Vanina E. Alvarez, Gabriela T. Niemirowicz Enzymes of the M32 family are Zn-dependent metallocarboxypeptidases (MCPs) widely distributed among prokaryotic organisms and just a few eukaryotes includingTrypanosoma brucei andTrypanosoma cruzi, the causative agents of sleeping sickness and Chagas disease, respectively. These enzymes are absent in humans and several functions have been proposed for trypanosomatid M32 MCPs. However, no synthetic inhibitors have been reported so far for these enzymes. Her...

Abstract Gene editing offers opportunities to solve fish farming sustainability issues that presently hampers expansion of the aquaculture industry. In for example Atlantic salmon farming, there are now two major bottlenecks limiting the expansion of the industry. One is the genetic impact of escaped farmed salmon on wild populations, which is considered the most long-term negative effect on the environment. Secondly and the utmost acute problem is the fish parasite salmon lice, which is currently causing high lethality in wild salmonids due to high concentrations of the parasite in the sea owing to sea cage salmo...

Detection of Gyrodactylus spp. is based on the morphological identification of isolated parasites after fish necropsy. Contributing to the diagnosis of gyrodactylosis, in this study, a non-destructive PCR assay was standardized; the PCR was first performed using genomic DNA of Gyrodactylus spp. isolated from the surface of the N...
