Abstract For almost a decade, the number of Salmonella enterica subspecies enterica serovar Infantis-positive broiler flocks has been steadily increasing in Slovenia, doubling the number of positive holdings in only a few years. Since multidrug resistant S. Infantis isolates are highly prevalent in the broiler meat industry and may represent a public health concern through the food chain, we aimed to investigate the antimicrobial susceptibility, genetic diversity, and biofilm-forming ability of S. Infantis from Slovenian broiler flocks. A total of 87 S. Infantis strains isolated from broiler faeces in the period b...

moud Sitohy The present work was carried out to determine the characteristics and antibacterial activity of 7S and 11S globulins isolated from cowpea seed (Vigna unguiculata (L.) Walp.). The molecular mass of 7S globulin was demonstrated by SDS-PAGE bands to be of about 132, 129 and 95 kDa corresponding the α/, α and β subunits. The molecular mass of 11S globulin was demonstrated by SDS-PAGE bands to be existed between 28 and 52 kDa corresponding the basic and acidic subunits. The minimum inhibitory concentrations MICs of 7S and 11S globulins isolated from cowpea seed were determined agains...

Kirk NontyphoidalSalmonella is a major contributor to the global burden of foodborne disease, with invasive infections contributing substantially to illnesses and deaths. We analyzed notifiable disease surveillance data for invasive nontyphoidalSalmonella disease (iNTS) in Queensland, Australia. We used Poisson regression to estimate incidence rate ratios by gender, age group, and geographical area over 2007 –2016. There were 995 iNTS cases, with 945 (92%) confirmed by blood culture.Salmonella Virchow accounted for 254 (2...

This study showed that administration of CS-GAPC did not cause any substantial alterations in haematological and biochemical parameters of the animals.Histopathological studies showed no significant changes in the control and CS-GAPC administered groups. Ames tests revea that CS-GAPC nanocomposite is non-mutagenic against the Salmonella thyphimurium strains. No abnormalities were observed in the animal's chromosomal aberrations and clastogenic values when the animals were treated with CS-GAPC. At acidic pH of 4, the encapsulated drug was completely released, indicating that the drug release from the prepared nanocomposite ...
