Effect of carbohydrates on Salmonella typhimurium colonization in broiler chickens.
The effect of carbohydrates in the drinking water of broiler chickens on Salmonella typhimurium colonization was evaluated. Results indicate that mannose and lactose (2.5%) significantly (P less thanExpand

Prevention of Salmonella typhimurium colonization of broilers with D-mannose.
Broiler chickens can be contaminated by Salmonella typhimurium, which is a food safety concern. It has been previously shown that D-mannose blocks S. typhimurium adherence to chicken intestine inExpand

Effect of dietary lactose on cecal pH, bacteriostatic volatile fatty acids, and Salmonella typhimurium colonization of broiler chicks.
One-day-old broiler chicks were inoculated with volatile fatty acid producing cecal flora from adult chickens. The chicks were divided into four groups and provided 1) no lactose, 2) 2.5% lactose inExpand

Inhibition by mannose of in vitro colonization of chicken small intestine by Salmonella typhimurium.
The in vitro adherence of [3H]thymidine-labeled Salmonella typhimurium isolates to the small intestine of one-day-old chickens was investigated. Bacteria were screened for mannose sensitivity andExpand
