communicable disease associated with milk and dairy products in england and wales: 1983-1984.during the period 1983-1984 32 outbreaks of disease (ii in 1983 and 21 in 1984) associated with consumption of milk and dairy products and affecting at least 714 people were reported from england and wales. twenty-seven of the outbreaks were attributed to raw milk, two to contaminated pasteurised milk and one each to cheese, cream and ice-cream. twenty-two were due to salmonellas, seven to campylobacters and one each to staphylococcus aureus, yersinia enterocolitica and streptococcus zooepidemic ...19863722841

post-yersinial arthritis in cleveland, england.four cases of post-yersinial reactive arthritis are described. all patients presented with an acute lower limb arthropathy with features of an associated enthesopathy. two patients had restriction of axial skeletal movements. systemic features were prominent in three, including weight loss and malaise. mean age of onset was 34 years. three patients gave a history of antecedent diarrhoea within the previous month. three patients had raised titres to y enterocolitica type 0:3 (ranging from 1 in 32 ...19892930264
the microbiology of cooked prawns and shrimps on retail sale.in an inter-laboratory survey, 148 samples of cooked prawns and shrimps were obtained at the point of sale to the consumer. salmonellae and vibrio parahaemolyticus were not detected. yersinia enterocolitica was isolated from three samples. results for total viable count and presence of escherichia coli and staphylococcus aureus complied well with available guidelines for imported cooked prawns, suggesting that the risk of food poisoning from retail samples of these foods in the south of england ...19853891850
yersinia enterocolitica biotype i. diarrhoea and episodes of hla b27 related ocular and rheumatic inflammatory disease in south-east england.yersinia enterocolitica biotype i were isolated from faeces of 16% of 56 consecutive patients with diarrhoea or gastrointestinal symptoms and 2.8% of 109 healthy controls (p less than 0.01). similar yersinia biotypes were isolated from 4% of samples from 86 rheumatoid arthritis patients and 4.5% of samples from 140 ankylosing spondylitis patients examined regularly over an 8-month period. these results suggest that yersinia enterocolitica biotype i are regular but infrequent inhabitants of the h ...19826981842
yersinia arthritis in the midlands: clinical and immunological features in ten cases during 1980-1983.ten cases of yersinia arthritis, nine of whom were known to be b27 positive were seen in the midlands between 1980 and 1983. diagnostic difficulty arose in four cases owing to unusual form of presentation or course. two of the cases studied during the acute phase showed a marked degree of lymphocyte transformation in the presence of y. enterocolitica 0:3 in a dose-related form. this does not lend support to the concept of molecular mimicry between the bacterial antigen and the b27 gene product s ...19836606474
wide variety of bioserotypes of enteropathogenic yersinia in tonsils of english pigs at slaughter.the tonsils of 630 pigs from 45 english farms using three different rearing methods (assured british pigs, open management and organic) were examined between 2003 and 2005 in order to investigate if the low incidence of human yersiniosis could be attributed to a low prevalence of enteropathogenic yersinia among english pigs. in addition, different isolation methods were compared, possible differences in prevalence among pigs were studied, as well as the prevalence of different bioserotypes of en ...201020206396
