An update on alternatives to antimicrobial growth promoters for broilers.
TLDR
A number of non-therapeutic alternatives, including enzymes, (in)organic acids, probiotics, prebiotics, etheric oils and immunostimulants are described in this review. Expand
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. Expand
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.

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. Expand
A decrease of the butyrate-producing species Roseburia hominis and Faecalibacterium prausnitzii defines dysbiosis in patients with ulcerative colitis
TLDR
The composition of the fecal microbiota of UC patients differs from that of healthy individuals: the authors found a reduction in R hominis and F prausnitzii, both well-known butyrate-producing bacteria of the Firmicutes phylum, suggesting that different bacterial species contribute to the pathogenesis of UC and CD. Expand
Non-typhoidal Salmonella infections in pigs: a closer look at epidemiology, pathogenesis and control.
TLDR
The present manuscript reviews the importance of pigs and pork as a source for salmonellosis in humans and discusses commonly accepted and recent insights in the pathogenesis of non-typhoidal Salmonella infections in pigs, with emphasis on Salmoneella Typhimurium. Expand
From the gut to the peripheral tissues: the multiple effects of butyrate
TLDR
The present paper aims to give an update on the biological role of butyrate in mammals, when it is naturally produced by the gastrointestinal microbiota or orally ingested as a feed additive. Expand
Rethinking our understanding of the pathogenesis of necrotic enteritis in chickens.
TLDR
Recent research is creating a paradigm shift in the understanding of the pathogenesis of necrotic enteritis of chickens and is now providing information that will be necessary to monitor and control the incidence of NE in poultry. Expand
Colonization factors of Campylobacter jejuni in the chicken gut
TLDR
A thorough, up-to-date overview will be given of the survival mechanisms and colonization factors of C. jejuni identified to date, which may contribute to the understanding on how C.Jejuni survival and colonization in chicks is mediated, as well as provide potential targets for effective subunit vaccine development. Expand
Colonization strategy of Campylobacter jejuni results in persistent infection of the chicken gut.
TLDR
A novel colonization mechanism by escaping rapid mucosal clearance through short-term epithelial invasion and evasion, combined with fast replication in the mucus is suggested. Expand
