Foods may potentially serve as vehicles for the transmission of antimicrobial-resistant variants of Staphylococcus aureus that are important in a human clinical context. Further, retail food products can be a cause of staphylococcal food poisoning. For these reasons and to account for source attribution and risk assessment, detailed information on the population structure, resistance, and virulence profiles of S. aureus originating from retail food products is necessary. In the current study, whole-genome sequences from 88 S. aureus isolates were subjected to bioinformatics analyses in relation to sequence types, antimicro...
A number of birds at a commercial farm in Suffolk were found to have the H5 strain of avian flu, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs said on Tuesday.
BIRD flu has been confirmed on a farm in Suffolk and to limit the risk of the disease spreading a one-kilometre exclusion zone has been set up and nearly 30,000 chickens will be culled. Also known as avian flu, what ’s the risk of humans becoming infected?
Due to an unfortunate oversight the acknowledgements has been omitted.
This study also provides important insights into the ecology, epidemiology, and genomic features of gyroviruses in a remote neotropical rainforest. The pathogenesis of this virus in avian species or whether GyV11 can infect humans and/or chickens needs to be further investigated.

However, the immune evasion mechanism of H9N2 avian influenza viruses (AIVs) in chickens is poorly understood. Dendritic cells (DCs) are immune cells of major importance, involved in innate ...
(Max Delbr ü ck Center for Molecular Medicine in the Helmholtz Association) Normally, bird flu viruses do not spread easily from person to person. But if this does happen, it could trigger a pandemic. Researchers from the MDC and RKI have now explained in the journal Nature Communications what makes the leap from animals to humans less likely.
