Recently the numbers of spoilage incidents in food industry by the species of Thermoascus are increasing, but the risk of food spoilage have never been evaluated. It became obvious that their heat-resistances were higher than those of other heat-resist fungi, Byssochlamys, Hamigera and Neosartorya by our analyses. On the other hand, Thermoascus aurantiacus(More)
Heat-resistant fungi, genera Byssochlamys, Talaromyces, Neosartorya, and Hamigera, contribute significantly to the spoilage of heat-processed acidic foods, due to the formation of heat-resistant ascospores. Here, we first evaluated the differences in the beta-tubulin gene between Byssochlamys and Hamigera and developed specific primers to identify the(More)
Species of the genus Neosartorya are heat-resistant fungi that cause the spoilage of heat-processed acidic foods due to the formation of heat-resistant ascospores, and they produce mycotoxins, such as fumitremorgins and gliotoxin. Their anamorphs are phylogenetically and morphologically very close to Aspergillus fumigatus, which has never been reported as(More)
7114 Background: In clinical trials, concurrent chemoradiotherapy improves survival of pts with inoperable stage III NSCLC compared with sequential chemoradiotherapy or radiotherapy alone, and platinum doublets with third-generation chemotherapy prolong survival of pts with stage IV NSCLC. Epidermal growth factor receptor antagonist is active as second-line(More)
The number of spoilage incidents in the food industry attributable to a species of the genus Moniliella has recently increased, but the risk of food spoilage has not yet been evaluated. The purpose of this study was to develop a method to rapidly identify high-risk species and to conduct a risk analysis study of Moniliella spp. Acetic acid resistance of M.(More)
In the beverage industry, peracetic acid has been increasingly used as a disinfectant for the filling machinery and environment due to merits of leaving no residue, it is safe for humans, and its antiseptic effect against fungi and endospores of bacteria. Recently, Chaetomium globosum and Chaetomium funicola were reported resistant to peracetic acid;(More)
We evaluated the sensitivity and specificity of an immunochromatography kit, Single-path Emetic Tox Mrk (Merck), which targets a marker protein for the detection of Bacillus cereus that produces emetic toxin. Strains were isolated after outbreaks of food poisoning, and from retail prepared foods and food products. The strains were examined for the presence(More)
The objective of this study is to report the use of thromboelastography as a diagnostic tool for the hyperfibrinolytic phase of disseminated intravascular coagulopathy in a dog with metastatic haemangiosarcoma. We established a cytological (i.e. fine needle aspirate) and histopathological (i.e. excisional surgical biopsy) diagnosis of haemangiosarcoma in a(More)
