BACKGROUND Chitosan (AC) and five hydroalcoholic extracts from Lithospermum erythrorhizon (SE), Rheum palmatum (RE), Thymus vulgaris (AT), Lippia citriodora (PLX) and a mixture of Rosmarinus officinalis, Salvia lavandulifolia and Thymus mastichina (LA) were tested for antimicrobial activity against bacteria, yeasts and filamentous fungi using two broth(More)
Incidence and population levels of Bacillus cereus in American salad, an industrially manufactured, packaged and refrigerated deli salad containing vegetables and mustard, were determined. Of 12 ready-to-eat samples examined, one (8.3%) was positive for B. cereus at less than 5 x 10(3)cfu g(-1). According to the ISO confirmation procedure, a strain was(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of the study was to compare prospectively indicator-condition (IC)-guided testing versus testing of those with non-indicator conditions (NICs) in four primary care centres (PCCs) in Barcelona, Spain. METHODS From October 2009 to February 2011, patients aged from 18 to 65 years old who attended a PCC for a new herpes zoster infection,(More)
The growth kinetic parameters of germinated cells from heat-activated spores of the psychrotrophic Bacillus cereus EPSO-35AS strain in nutrient broth (NB) and in tyndallized carrot broth (TCB) were evaluated at different temperatures (8, 12, and 16 degrees C) for control samples and for samples acidified with citric acid or lemon juice at pH values between(More)
Rumple is a serious peel collapse of Primofiori lemons in the southeast of Spain with an unresolved aetiology. Symptoms typically occur on fruits at ripening under wet conditions as dark sunken lesions producing premature fruit drop and damaged fruits unacceptable for fresh commercialization. A total of 16 Colletotrichum spp. isolates established from(More)
The possible use of antimicrobials from seven plant essential oils as food preservatives was studied by examining their effects on the growth kinetics of activated Bacillus cereus INRA L2104 spores inoculated into tyndallized carrot broth. The effects of various concentrations of borneol, carvacrol, cinnamaldehyde, eugenol, menthol, thymol, and vanillin(More)
