Sale of raw milk in northern Italy: food safety implications and comparison of different analytical methodologies for detection of foodborne pathogens.
TLDR
The observed TBC increase and the detection of several pathogenic bacteria pose questions on the safety of raw milk; the use of ISO seems inefficient in detecting a low contamination level of pathogens in milk and consequently not appropriate as official method for testing. Expand
Foodborne pathogens in in-line milk filters and associated on-farm risk factors in dairy farms authorized to produce and sell raw milk in northern Italy.
TLDR
PCR analysis of milk filters was a rapid and sensitive method for the microbiological evaluation of herd contamination status and should be included among the registration requirements for the authorization to produce and sell raw milk. Expand
Presence of Campylobacter and Arcobacter species in in-line milk filters of farms authorized to produce and sell raw milk and of a water buffalo dairy farm in Italy.
TLDR
The presence of C. jejuni in in-line milk filters confirms that raw milk consumption is a significant risk factor for human infection and that resistance to fluoroquinolones and tetracycline was detected; for Arcobacter isolates, resistance to ampicillin and chloramphenicol was detected. Expand
Canine leishmaniasis surveillance in a northern Italy kennel.
TLDR
The results confirm the northward spread of CanL towards areas not previously affected by autochthonous foci, and identify a stable focus of leishmaniasis in an area that was not considered eco-compatible with the presence of the vector and infection. Expand
Molecular characterization of Cryptosporidium spp. from foals in Italy.
TLDR
Sequences of the gp60 gene of Cryptosporidium horse genotype allowed identification of the subtype family VIaA15G4, defining a novel microsatellite pattern within horse subtype VIa. Expand
Occurrence of Helicobacter pullorum in turkeys.
TLDR
Investigation of caecum contents collected at the slaughterhouse from 55 animals intensively reared in 11 farms found H. pullorum is a frequent intestinal colonizer in turkeys; therefore, attention should be given to clarify the food-borne risk linked to carcass contamination. Expand
Isolation of Arcobacter species in water buffaloes (Bubalus bubalis).
TLDR
It is indicated that waterbuffaloes can harbor a variety of Arcobacter spp. Expand
Typing of Campylobacter jejuni Isolated from Turkey by Genotypic Methods, Antimicrobial Susceptibility, and Virulence Gene Patterns: A Retrospective Study.
TLDR
The identification of clonal complexes shared between turkey and human isolates suggests that turkeys could be a possible source of Campylobacter infection. Expand
Shelf life of donkey milk subjected to different treatment and storage conditions.
TLDR
The study shows that an HPP treatment of pasteurized milk after packing extends the shelflife of donkey milk and assures its microbial criteria up to 30d if properly stored at 4°C until opening; therefore, combined heat treatment and storage strategies are recommended to enhance the shelf life of donkey Milk. Expand
Prevalence of Chlamydophila felis by PCR among healthy pet cats in Italy.
TLDR
The nucleotide and predicted amino acid sequences of three genes from two cats showed 100% identity with the same regions amplified from conjunctival swabs of cats in the same geographic area. Expand
