Source identification of airborne Escherichia coli of swine house surroundings using ERIC-PCR and REP-PCR
Abstract Evidence is mounting that microorganisms originating from livestock impact the air quality of the animal houses themselves and the public in the surrounding neighborhoods. The aim ofExpand
Seroprevalence of avian influenza H9N2 among poultry workers in Shandong Province, China
H9N2 avian influenza virus has been circulating widely in birds, with occasional infection among humans. Poultry workers are considered to be at high risk of infection with avian influenza due toExpand
ERIC-PCR identification of the spread of airborne Escherichia coli in pig houses.
To understand the spread of microbial aerosols in pig houses, with Escherichia coli (E. coli) as indicator, the airborne E. coli in 4 pig houses and their surroundings at different points 10, 50mExpand

The dissemination of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli (E. coli) from food-producing animals to the surrounding environment has attracted much attention. To determineExpand
Development of a real-time RT-PCR method for rapid detection of H9 avian influenza virus in the air
Avian influenza virus (AIV) has caused serious epidemics all over the world. Notably, the low-pathogenic AIV H9N2 has been spreading widely, leading to enormous economic losses to the poultryExpand
Application of swine manure on agricultural fields contributes to extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli spread in Tai'an, China
The prevalence of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli (E. coli) is increasing rapidly in both hospital environments and animal farms. A lot of animal manure has beenExpand
Occurrence and transmission of Newcastle disease virus aerosol originating from infected chickens under experimental conditions.
In order to better understand airborne transmission of Newcastle disease, a model system was established and two trials were conducted. Twenty-five principal specific pathogen free (SPF) chickensExpand
Spread of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli from a swine farm to the receiving river
The dissemination of drug-resistant bacteria into different environments has posed a grave threat to public health, but data on the spread of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producingExpand
REP‐PCR tracking of the origin and spread of airborne Staphylococcus aureus in and around chicken house
Abstract  Staphylococcus aureus was used as an indicator to study the origin and spread of microbial aerosol in and around chicken houses. Air samples indoor, upwind (10 and 50 m), and downwind (10,Expand
Avian influenza H9N2 seroprevalence among pig population and pig farm staff in Shandong, China
BackgroundShandong province of China has a large number of pig farms with the semi-enclosed houses, allowing crowds of wild birds to seek food in the pig houses. As the carriers of avian influenzaExpand
