Molecular Survey of Anaplasma phagocytophilum and Ehrlichia canis in Red Foxes (Vulpes vulpes) from Central Italy
During the 2007–2008 hunting season, 150 spleen samples were collected from free-ranging red foxes in central Italy and DNA of Ehrlichia canis, which causes the monocytic ehrlichiosis in canids, was tested by two nested PCR assays.
Seroprevalence of Anaplasma phagocytophilum in domestic and wild animals from central Italy.
From January 2004 to July 2007, 2455 sera were collected from domestic and wild animals living in central Italy and tested by indirect immunofluorescence assay to detect antibodies against Anaplasma phagocytophilum, confirming the presence of A. phagocytes in wild ruminants and domestic animals, including pets, in centralItaly.
The Role of Diallyl Sulfides and Dipropyl Sulfides in the In Vitro Antimicrobial Activity of the Essential Oil of Garlic, Allium sativum L., and Leek, Allium porrum L.
The results obtained suggest that the presence of the allyl group is fundamental for the antimicrobial activity of these sulfide derivatives when they are present in Allium or in other species.
Epidemiology of leptospirosis: observations on serological data obtained by a "diagnostic laboratory for leptospirosis" from 1995 to 2001.
Sheep, horses, pigs and dogs gave the highest number of positive responses, particularly against the serovar bratislava and, for dogs, against icterohaemorrhagiae.
Former Foodstuff Products in Tenebrio Molitor Rearing: Effects on Growth, Chemical Composition, Microbiological Load, and Antioxidant Status
This study demonstrates that Tenebrio molitor rearing can be done on leftovers and by-products with proficient outcomes and high-quality final products, however, rearing substrates must be carefully selected in order to maximize the outcomes in relation to the prefixed goals.
