Objective. To determine the source of an outbreak of Salmonella javiana infection. Design. Case-control study. Participants. A total of 101 culture-confirmed cases and 540 epidemiologically linked cases were detected between May 26, 2003, and June 16, 2003, in hospital employees, patients, and visitors. Asymptomatic employees who had eaten in the hospital cafeteria between May 30 and June 4, 2003, and had had no gastroenteritis symptoms after May 1, 2003, were chosen as control subjects… Expand
Sources of human infection by Salmonella enterica serotype Javiana: A systematic review
Control of human S. Javiana infection should include three factors, consumption of drinking water after treatment, safe animal contact, and safe food processing and handling procedures, to reduce the overall burden of NTS infection in humans. Expand
Salmonella enterica Serotype Javiana Infections Linked to a Seafood Restaurant in Maricopa County, Arizona, 2016.
Among restaurant diners, laboratory and case-control evidence indicated shrimp as the possible outbreak source; poor thermal inactivation of Salmonella on shrimp is theorized as a possible cause. Expand

Detection and functionality of the CdtB, PltA, and PltB from Salmonella enterica serovar Javiana.
Describing the functionality of CDT from nontyphoidal Salmonella isolates showed a significant difference between the wild-type cdtB strain and its isogenic ∆cdtB for invasion of the cell lines and CdtB produced from S. Javiana strains may play an important role in pathogenesis in host cells. Expand
