Prevalence of Enteropathogens in Outpatients with Acute Diarrhea from Urban and Rural Areas, Southeast China, 2010-2014. Am J Trop Med Hyg. 2019 Jun 17;: Authors: Chen C, Wang LP, Yu JX, Chen X, Wang RN, Yang XZ, Zheng SF, Yu F, Zhang ZK, Liu SJ, Li ZJ, Chen Y Abstract Acute diarrhea is an important public health issue. Here, we focused on the differences of enteropathogens in acute diarrhea between urban and rural areas in southeast China. Laboratory- and sentinel-based surveillance of acute diarrhea (≥ 3 loose or liquid stools/24 hours) was conducted at 16 hospitals. Fecal specimens were tested for bacterial (Aeromonas sp., Campylobacter sp., diarrheagenic Escherichia coli, Plesiomonas shigelloides, non-typhoidal Salmonella, Shigella sp., Vibrio sp., and Yersinia sp.) and viral (adenovirus, astrovirus, Norovirus, Rotavirus, and Sapovirus) pathogens. Descriptive statistics were used. Between January 1, 2010, and December 31, 2014, 4,548 outpatients with acute diarrhea were enrolled (urban, n = 3,220; rural, n = 1,328). Pathogens were identified in 2,074 (45.6%) patients. Norovirus (25.7%), Vibrio parahaemolyticus (10.2%), enteroaggregative Escherichia coli (EAEC) (8.8%), group A Rotavirus (7.0%), and enterotoxigenic Escherichia coli (ETEC) (5.6%) were the most common pathogens. Enteropathogens were less common in urban than in rural areas (42.0% versus 54.4%, P

Conclusions: In Sichuan province, the incidence of ESRD-HD annually was gradually descending. The elderly and male patients had higher incidence of ESRD-HD. The annual mortality rate of ESRD-HD was declining year by year, and elderly patients aged ≥ 60 contributed to the highest mortality rates. The major cause of death was cardiovascular diseases. This could contribute to a better understanding of ESRD-HD in southwest of China, thus providing better treatment for ESRD in the future. PMID: 31296088 [PubMed - in process]

Authors: Wang X, Liu C, Zhang M, Han Y, Aase H, Villanger GD, Myhre O, Donkelaar AV, Martin RV, Baines EA, Chen R, Kan H, Xia Y Abstract BACKGROUND: Particulate matter (PM) air pollution is an environmental risk to public health. The prevalence of thyroid disease during pregnancy has increased rapidly in recent decades, but the available data on the relationships among air pollution, thyroid function and birth outcomes in pregnant women, particularly in China, are scarce. We aimed to evaluate the association between maternal exposure to PM2.5 and its components and maternal and neonatal thyroid function and to inve...

Kiran Kumar, Anindita ChatterjeeAbstractSilver (Ag) nanoparticles (NPs) were produced by a simple, one step green method using Gigantic swallow-wort leaf aqueous extract. Intrinsic structural and physiochemical properties of Ag NPs were investigated and demonstrated their applicability in biomedicine. The IR data revealed the capping of organic molecules from plant extract. Further, the fluorescence studies were carried and found the molecules exhibit excitation at 400 nm. The biological...

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: January 2020Source: Food Control, Volume 107Author(s): Irshaan Syed, Pratik Banerjee, Preetam SarkarAbstractApplication of plant-based essential oils as antimicrobial agents has received considerable attention. However, these antimicrobial compounds undergo quick depletion due to various factors such as volatile nature, low-water solubility, and interactions with lipophilic food components. Therefore, to retain the antimicrobial efficacy of such compounds, the combination with an oil-in-water based emulsion system as a carrier can be a viable option. The current work focuses on the development of geraniol...

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...
