The occurrence of Salmonella in food of animal origin in Chiang Mai province was investigated by using a cross-sectional study during several phases of the pork production chain (cutting, transport, and retail) and of the environment in the cutting unit of a slaughterhouse. In total, 173 pork samples were obtained during the cutting phase, 173 samples from(More)
In 144 patients with bleeding disorders and in 11 patients with normal coagulation, 517 wound sealings were performed using the fibrin adhesion system (FAS) with the primary object of local hemostasis. Excellent results were obtained in patients with bleeding disorders caused by impaired thrombocyte function or anticoagulant therapy. Replacement therapy or(More)
In a retrospective study, on a sample of 1021 patients with carcinoma of the lips, oral cavity and oropharynx, the clinically available factors at the time of the patient's first admission are analysed with reference to their prognostic relevance. Prognostically relevant factors are determined by both univariate and multivariate analyses. Of the 18 factors(More)
1. The microbiological composition of litter (straw and wood shavings) was sampled, prior to placing 1-d-old chicks, during housing of the birds and after depopulation. Two independent trials were conducted. 2. The total aerobic plate count (APC) was determined and the predominant microflora of the samples was identified using flow charts. 3. Before chick(More)
Infection with Salmonella (S.) is the most frequently reported cause of bacterial food-borne illness worldwide. Poultry are a common source and, in recent years, much attention has been focused in determining the prevalence of Salmonella during the different stages in the poultry production chain. This article was designed to investigate the prevalence of(More)
To obtain a more detailed understanding of the prevalence of classical scrapie infections in a heavily affected German sheep flock (composed of 603 sheep and 6 goats), we analysed 169 sheep and 6 goats that carried the genotypes susceptible to the disease and that were therefore culled following discovery of the index case. The initial tests were performed(More)
This study describes the influence of bioptivet GB on minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) for oxytetracycline (OTC) of the intestinal E. coli flora of young broiler chickens after oral administration at a dosage equivalent to a prophylactic course of treatment. From day 6 until day 15 one group of 50 birds received a diet containing 124 ppm OTC, another(More)
1. Water, aerosols and air in chilling facilities in 2 poultry abattoirs were bacteriologically examined. The different types of samples displayed a variety of bacterial loads and genera. 2. The aerobic plate count in water from spray nozzles was about log10 2 to 3 in both plants. Flavobacterium, Alcaligenes, Acinetobacter and Pseudomonadaceae were(More)
The antibiotic resistance in Salmonella isolates from 400 imported chicken carcasses in Bhutan and from 178 pig carcasses in Vietnam were analyzed on a random basis against 14 antimicrobial agents. Among the poultry samples tested, 13% were positive for Salmonella. Salmonella Enteritidis dominated with a prevalence of 80.7%, and 40 of the 42 isolates(More)
