In conclusion, this review reported that IL-37 has a crucial role in reducing infection-associated inflammation and has a good impact on inflammation-induced pathology. However, tight regulation that achieved balance between effector immune responses that required for pathogen elimination and limited tissue damage that resulted from excessive inflammation should be existed in the potential IL-37 therapy to prevent clinical complications of a disease.

Publication date: Available online 22 October 2019Source: Journal of Food EngineeringAuthor(s): Jiyoon Yi, Kang Huang, Glenn M. Young, Nitin NitinAbstractCross-contamination of fresh produce during postharvest processing could be a significant risk factor that can lead to foodborne outbreaks. The aim of this study was to simulate cross-contamination from a contaminated lettuce to non-contaminated leaves/abiotic surfaces (glass, polyethylene), quantify the bacterial transfer efficiency to determine the influences of contact time, number of repeated contacts, and applied contact force, and evaluate the influences of surface ...

This study shows that dual species biofilms with foodborne pathogens are more resistant to disinfectant treatment than their single species counterparts and that biofilm maturity as well as environmental conditions, i.e. access to nutrients, play an important role in their response to the treatments tested.

Publication date: March 2020Source: Food Control, Volume 109Author(s): Sophie Tongyu Wu, Susan R. Hammons, Jingjin Wang, Clara Assisi, Brittany DiPietro, Haley F. OliverAbstractReady-to-eat (RTE) deli meats sliced at retail are predicted to cause 83% of deli meat-associated listeriosis cases annually. While Listeria monocytogenes is commonly found in delis, environmental prevalence varies by store (0–40%). A deep clean sanitation standard operating procedure (SSOP) executed by a third-party cleaning service immediately reduced L. monocytogenes prevalence in delis, but reductions were not sustained over time. The purp...

Publication date: Available online 17 October 2019Source: Meat ScienceAuthor(s): Aida Pérez-Baltar, Alejandro Serrano, Raquel Montiel, Margarita MedinaAbstractThe effect of high pressure processing (HPP) on Listeria monocytogenes inactivation on the surface and in the interior of deboned dry-cured ham was investigated. Whole deboned hams were pressurized at 450 MPa for 10 min or 600 MPa for 5 min and stored for 60 d at 4 and 12 °C. In control non-pressurized dry-cured hams, L. monocytogenes counts decreased on the surface throughout refrigerated storage, whereas remained unchanged in the interior of th...

Baldi, Teane M.A. Gomes, Matheus D. Baldissera, Cinthia M. Andrade, Lenita M. Stefani, Aleksandro S. Da SilvaAbstractEnergy metabolism is a sensitive indicator of cellular disorders. Therefore, the objective of this study was to investigate changes in cardiac and hepatic energy metabolism during listeriosis using an experimental model. We divided gerbils into two groups: Control (n = 11) and orally Infected (n = 12) with 5 × 10...

In conclusion, these findings suggest that growth under LSMMG conditions stimulates alterations in L. monocytogenes stress/virulence response, perhaps due to changes in lipid composition and related genes expression.

Scobie et al. recently reported a 10-year review of non-pregnant listeriosis cases in England.1 No case of cutaneous listeriosis was reported in this large cohort of 1,357 patients. Aside gastro-enteritis and invasive infections (septicemia, neurolisteriosis and maternal-neonatal infections), Listeria monocytogenes (Lm) can also be responsible for other focal infections, including bone and joint infection, biliary, pulmonary, or urinary tract infections.2 Skin infections have also been reported before, either as a part of disseminated infection in neonates —a condition known as “granulomatosis infantiseptica&rd...

In conclusion, to best of our knowledge these findings are the first report of isolation of 4-bromophenol and Bis (2-ethylhexyl) phthalate from genus Nocardiopsis, thus suggesting that rare actinomycetes are promising source of therapeutically important bioactive metabolites.
