Evidence of Host-Associated Populations of Cryptosporidium parvum in Italy
ABSTRACT Recent studies have revealed extensive genetic variation among isolates of Cryptosporidium parvum, an Apicomplexan parasite that causes gastroenteritis in both humans and animals worldwide.Expand

Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhimurium Exploits Inflammation to Modify Swine Intestinal Microbiota
Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium is an important zoonotic gastrointestinal pathogen responsible for foodborne disease worldwide. It is a successful enteric pathogen because it has developedExpand

The CpA135 gene as a marker to identify Cryptosporidium species infecting humans.
Of the 22 species currently recognized as valid in the Cryptosporidium genus, C. parvum and C. hominis account for most cases of human infections worldwide. However, C. meleagridis, C. canis, C.Expand

Zinc is required to ensure the expression of flagella and the ability to form biofilms in Salmonella enterica sv Typhimurium.
Zinc is known to play a central role in bacterial physiology and pathogenesis. Here, we report that the accumulation of FliC, the structural subunit of Salmonella phase 1 flagella, is sharply reducedExpand

Salmonella Typhimurium exploits inflammation to its own advantage in piglets
Salmonella Typhimurium (S. Typhimurium) is responsible for foodborne zoonotic infections that, in humans, induce self-limiting gastroenteritis. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether theExpand

Evaluation of the immunogenicity and safety of Brucella melitensis B115 vaccination in pregnant sheep.
In spite of its limitations, Rev.1 is currently recognized as the most suitable vaccine against Brucella melitensis (the causative agent of ovine and caprine brucellosis). However, its use is limitedExpand

Salmonella Typhimurium infection primes a nutriprive mechanism in piglets.
Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium (S. Typhimurium) is an important cause of acute food- borne zoonoses worldwide, typically carried by pigs. It is well known that Salmonella has evolved a wideExpand

Correction: Zinc is required to ensure the expression of flagella and the ability to form biofilms in Salmonella enterica sv Typhimurium.
Correction for 'Zinc is required to ensure the expression of flagella and the ability to form biofilms in Salmonella enterica sv Typhimurium' by Serena Ammendola et al., Metallomics, 2016, DOI:Expand
Study of host-pathogen-microbiota interactions on a Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium piglet model
Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium is a Gram negative gastrointestinal pathogen responsible for food poisoning worldwide. Upon entry into the host, Salmonella must overcome the robust line ofExpand
