Authors: Shima N, Nakamura J, Saito K, Kamata Y, Nagatani K, Nagashima T, Iwamoto M, Akine D, Saito T, Sato K, Minota S Abstract A 72-year-old woman was admitted to our hospital with bilateral pleural effusions. She had a 31-year history of systemic lupus erythematosus and had been treated with prednisolone and azathioprine. Pleural fluid culture revealed Salmonella enterica subsp. arizonae infection. This pathogen rarely infects humans but is commonly found in the gut flora of reptiles, especially snakes. Our patient had not come in contact with reptiles. Despite antibiotic therapies and negative pleural cultures,...

ConclusionsThe results highlight the importance of monitoring farm environments for Johne ’s disease. This disease is a growing concern for dairy and beef producers in Ireland, and sampling the farm environment may offer a useful means to rapidly screen for the presence of MAP. Non-pathogenic common enteric commensal and multiple-drug-resistantE. coli may contribute to AMR acting as a reservoir and transferring resistance to other species/pathogens in the environment.

Furutani Salmonella enterica is a pathogenic bacterium that causes foodborne illness. One of the vehicle foods of S. enterica are chicken eggs. Efficient collection of the bacterium is necessary to detect it specifically. We developed a method to detect S. enterica by PCR on a microfluidic disc device using a fluorescent probe. Salmonella enterica cells were isolated in the microchambers on the device, followed by thermal lysis and PCR targeting with the invA gene, a gene specific to S. enterica, were observed by measurement of the fluorescent signal that resulted from gene amplification. However, the developed method ...

Multidrug resistant (MDR) Salmonella strains are highly adaptive and have been responsible for several foodborne disease outbreaks. We investigated the genetic relatedness, antibiotic resistance and virulence genes of 160 strains which were recovered from 920 samples. The samples...

Thirty were selected, using stratified randomisation to form two equal groups (treatment and control) with the same distribution of serum total protein, copper, selenium, zinc, and manganese concentrations, age and breed. From the remaining 10 calves, five were randomly selected...

Authors: Asfaw Ali D, Tadesse B, Ebabu A Abstract A cross-sectional study was conducted between December, 2013, and May, 2014, to determine the prevalence and antibiotic resistance feature of Salmonella isolated from broilers slaughtered in Debre Zeit and Modjo towns, Ethiopia. A total of 384 caecal content samples were collected for microbiological examination following the standard techniques and procedures outlined by the International Organization for Standardization to isolate Salmonella. The sensitivity of the isolates subjected to nine antimicrobials was tested by the Kirby-Bauer disk diffusion method. The o...

Ovalbumin can encapsulate hydrophobic molecules, thereby improving aqueous solubility and reducing volatility. The aim of this study was to explore the potential of an ovalbumin nanocarrier to improve the application range of carvacrol. Protein structure and scanning ...

Publication date: Available online 11 February 2020Source: Food ControlAuthor(s): Yuqiao Jin, Juming Tang, Mei-Jun ZhuAbstractSalmonella is a leading cause of foodborne illness associated with low-moisture foods. In addition to being able to survive in low-moisture environments during long storage, Salmonella has shown sharply increased thermal tolerance making it difficult to control in low-moisture foods. This research utilized soy protein powder as a food career to study the thermal resistance of Salmonella under a wide range of temperatures and aw. Salmonella inoculated soy protein powder samples were pre-equilibrated ...

In this study, a portable analyzer was developed to rapidly and simultaneously detect five types of foodborne bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Salmonella, Shigella, enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) on a centrifugal chip. Integration of the processes, including bacteria lysis, visible loop-mediated amplification (LAMP) and detection, was accomplished within 70 minutes. The analyzer has a compact size (151 × 134 × 110 mm) and two motors positioned on both sides of the centrifugal chip. The upper motor was used to generate a rotating magnetic f...
