Clostridium perfringens in poultry: an emerging threat for animal and public health
TLDR
The incidence of Clostridium perfringens-associated necrotic enteritis in poultry has increased in countries that stopped using antibiotic growth promoters and the use of probiotic and prebiotic products has been suggested, but are not available for practical use in the field at the present time.
The use of organic acids to combat Salmonella in poultry: a mechanistic explanation of the efficacy
TLDR
It is possible to decrease chicken carcass and egg contaminations by adding organic acids to the feed or drinking water at appropriate times and to use probiotic and prebiotic bacteria to achieve beneficial effects.
Antimicrobial Growth Promoters Used in Animal Feed: Effects of Less Well Known Antibiotics on Gram-Positive Bacteria
TLDR
Since no susceptibility breakpoints are available for most of the antibiotics discussed, an alternative approach to the interpretation of MICs is presented and some pharmacokinetic data and information on the influence of these products on the intestinal flora are presented.
Mechanisms of egg contamination by Salmonella Enteritidis.
TLDR
There are indications that SE survives the attacks with the help of antimicrobial molecules during the formation of the egg in the hen's oviduct and inside the egg, which appears to require a unique combination of genes encoding for improved cell wall protection and repairing cellular and molecular damage, among others.
Gastric Helicobacters in Domestic Animals and Nonhuman Primates and Their Significance for Human Health
SUMMARY Helicobacters other than Helicobacter pylori have been associated with gastritis, gastric ulcers, and gastric mucosa-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma in humans. These very fastidious
Necrotic enteritis in broilers: an updated review on the pathogenesis
TLDR
It is now clearly established that only certain C. perfringens strains are capable of inducing necrotic enteritis under specific conditions that predispose to the disease and they constitute only a minority in the intestinal tract of healthy chickens.
Flavobacterium psychrophilum infections in salmonid fish.
TLDR
A literature review discusses the agent and the disease it causes, with emphasis on the bacterium-host interactions, and the development of preventive measures to efficiently combat this disease condition.
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in food production animals
TLDR
