The pathogenesis of enteric changes was studied in gnotobiotic piglets which, after hysterectomy had been infected orally with Campylobacter jejuni on the first day of their life. The involvement of the entire large intestine became clinically manifest by scouring on days post infection (DPI) 4 to DPI 5, and pathomorphologically, by simultaneous(More)
The meat and some organs of eight bulls given diet with 5% to 15% supplements of dried pig and poultry excrements for 175 days were subjected to examination for the presence of some foreign substances. The results were compared with samples from eight control bulls, fed the basal diet. Liver was not found to contain any aflatoxins B1 and M1. No(More)
The study deals with the results of the investigation of C. jejuni populations in the intestines of gnotobiotic piglets after oral infection with C. jejuni in the span of one to five days after infection (DAI). The infection of the whole large intestine was revealed, with the onset of pathological lesions 3rd DAI. C. jejuni was isolated from liver,(More)
The effects of some technologies (cooling, freezing, salting, packaging, fermentation, cold smoking, heat treatment) on the survival of Campylobacter jejuni were investigated. The different technological procedures can be considered as barriers influencing to a certain degree the survival of C. jejuni. The low value aw on the surface of chilled meat and(More)
The products of the animal origin (meat, organs, adipose tissue, eggs) from bulls, pigs and poultry which had been given animal excrements as supplements to their feeds (mostly pig excrements, in one case poultry excreta) were studied as to the content of foreign substances. The almost complete absence of aflatoxin and antimicrobial substances, and the(More)
To investigate cheeses for the presence of aflatoxins we chose the very sensitive method of Tuinstra and Bronsgeest (1975) used for the determination of aflatoxin M1 in milk. The method was slightly modified and the presence of aflatoxins was determined in 54 samples of different cheeses. Aflatoxin M1 was found out in 24% of the investigated samples. Most(More)
Fattened pigs were given standard diet containing 10% of crushed cake from white or red grapes. The replacement of part of the diet by this material was not found to exert any adverse influence on the health of the animals, evaluated according to slaughter characteristics. In most of the studied characteristics of the carcass and meat the difference between(More)
182 samples of bovine musculature and 183 samples of bovine liver obtained from the sanitary slaughters in the North Moravian region, mostly at Frýdek-Místek, over the February and March 1978, were examined for the lead content by the method of atomic absorption spectrophotometry. The lead content in the examined samples of musculature ranged from 0 to 0.80(More)
Five different screening methods of the detection of aflatoxin B1 are compared as to their usability in ten feeds, feed concentrates, and complete feed mixtures. Method II, i. e. the author's modification of the method of Pons et al. (1973) was found to be the best for the highest number of different feeds. Aflatoxin B1-positive findings were obtained in(More)
