syl D Abstract Turtoises are a great puzzle when it comes to their bacterial flora, the composition and structure of which are still unknown in details. Its component which has been best described so far is Salmonella spp., presumably due to the threat of reptile-associated salmonellosis in humans. This investigation tried to assess and characterize intestinal bacterial flora of imported tortoises found dead during quarantine. Most of the animals carried various serovars of Salmonella showing no antimicrobial resistance. Presence of multiresistant Escherichia coli was possibly a result of industrial breeding and h...

Abstract S. Choleraesuis (Choleraesuis) and S. Typhimurium (Typhimurium) cause salmonellosis in pigs and humans. The effects of vaccine strains pSV-less Typhimurium OU5048 and Choleraesuis OU7266 and SPI-2-mutant Choleraesuis SC2284 on the immune responses of pigs against Typhimurium, Choleraesuis, and S. Enteritidis (Enteritidis) with or without the virulence plasmid (pSV) were determined. After oral vaccination of three vaccine groups and challenge with Choleraesuis CN36, the level of Salmonella-specific IgG in sera and the bactericidal effects and superoxide generation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBM...

In this study, the sensitivity of Salmonella on almonds to electron beam (e-beam) irradiation under air and vacuum packaging was investigated. Almonds inoculated with S. Typhimurium LT2 were air- or vacuum-packaged, and then subjected to e-beam irradiation at different doses. The D10 value (radiation dose needed to reduce 90% of the Salmonella population) on vacuum-packaged almonds (0.46 kGy) was significantly greater (P

Publication date: Available online 12 July 2019Source: Food ControlAuthor(s): Haiqiang Wang, Elliot T. RyserAbstractDiced tomatoes have been linked to outbreaks of salmonellosis in the United States. Compared to slicing, commercial production of diced tomatoes is more complex and includes mechanical dicing as well as washing, dewatering, conveying, and packing. Consequently, this study aimed to 1) quantify Salmonella transfer during pilot-scale dicing of tomatoes, 2) assess the efficacy of three sanitizer treatments against Salmonella during flume tank washing, and 3) assess the efficacy of four sanitizers against Salmonel...

In addition, we investigated the relationship between AMR in NTS, Vibrio spp. and antimicrobial residue in the same ...

Escobar, Masayuki Kato, Jasmin Lott, Martha M. Moore, Kei-ichi SugiyamaAbstractThe bacterial reverse mutation test is a mainstay for evaluation of mutagenicity predicting the carcinogenic potential of a test substance and is recommended by regulatory agencies across the globe. The popularity of the test is due, in part, to the relatively low cost, rapid results and small amount of test material required compared to most other toxico...

The present study evaluated the anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory activities of lactic acid bacteria (LAB)-biotransformed mulberry fruit extract (MFE) against Salmonella Typhimurium. Biotransformed MFE more effectively reduced S. Typhimurium growth compared to non-biotransformed MFE and significantly inhibited the biofilm formation of S. Typhimurium (P

Conclusion: The fluorinated compounds showed, in general, a relatively more potent antibacterial activity than non-fluorinated counterparts. The results indicate that these thiocarbamates and dithiocarbamates could be promising candidates as potential antimicrobial agents.
