Vertebrate odorant binding proteins as antimicrobial humoral components of innate immunity for pathogenic microorganisms
TLDR
Ligand binding assays were carried out to test the scavenging potential of the bovine and porcine forms of the Lipocalin odorant binding protein (OBP) and hypothesized that vertebrate OBPs might behave as humoral components of innate immunity, active against pathogenic bacteria and fungi. Expand
The prevalence of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and multidrug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa in healthy captive ophidian
TLDR
The presence of constitutive (such as age and taxonomic family) and managerial (farm size, cleaning cycle frequency and food type) factors associated with P. aeruginosa in the gut microbiota of snakes is highlighted to reduce the risk to public health. Expand
Microbial Isolates from Vegetable Foreign Bodies Inhaled by Dogs
TLDR
Fluoroquinolones and Doxycycline were the most effective antibiotics, while resistance was observed against Gentamicin, Cefapirin, and Clindamycin, for the risk of transmission of antibiotic resistant bacteria or resistance genes. Expand
Discovery of Substituted (2-Aminooxazol-4-yl)Isoxazole-3-carboxylic Acids as Inhibitors of Bacterial Serine Acetyltransferase in the Quest for Novel Potential Antibacterial Adjuvants
TLDR
A series of inhibitors of Salmonella thyphimurium serine acetyltransferase (SAT), the enzyme that catalyzes the rate-limiting step of L-cysteine biosynthesis, are reported, with the most promising compound failing to interfere with bacterial growth when tested on a Gram-negative model organism. Expand
Wild Micromammals as Bioindicators of Antibiotic Resistance in Ecopathology in Northern Italy
TLDR
A high prevalence of strains resistant to antimicrobials of critical importance for human and animals in the investigated areas, thus representing a public health hazard is highlighted, the first report on antibiotic resistance in wild micromammals in the province of Parma. Expand
One Health Perspective on Infections in Nephrology: A Parallel Survey on Carbapenem- and Multidrug-resistant Klebsiella Pneumoniae and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa in High-risk Renal Patients and Farm
TLDR
This presentation aims to provide an overview of the research activities of the University of Parma and its sponsors, as well as some of the institutions and individuals involved in the research, over the past five years. Expand
Adding monoglycerides containing short and medium chain fatty acids to milk replacer: effects on health and performance of preweaned calves
Abstract The aim of this trial was to investigate the effects of a blend of monoglycerides of short- and medium-chain fatty acids (SMCFA) on health status and growth of preweaned male calves from 16Expand
Leptospira Seroprevalence in Colombian Dairy Herds
TLDR
It was found that the most common serotypes involved in human disease were the ones with the lowest seroprevalences in cattle in the investigated area, which suggests that cattle could represent a minor risk factor for the transmission of Leptospira infection to humans. Expand
Development of novel cocrystal-based active food packaging by a Quality by Design approach.
TLDR
An innovative active food packaging material based on cocrystallization of microbiologically active compounds present in essential oils i.e. carvacrol, thymol and cinnamaldehyde was developed and the prolonged shelf-life of grape samples up to 7 days at room temperature was demonstrated. Expand
