[the bacteriological and serological prevalence of campylobacter spp. and yersinia enterocolitica in fattening pig herds in lower saxony].this article presents the results of a study on the occurrence of two bacteria that cause zoonoses, campylobacter spp. and yersinia enterocolitica. the study was carried out in 30 fattening herds in lower saxony, germany, in 2004 and compares the results of bacteriological and serological methods of detection. bacteriological findings of campylobacter spp. in the faeces indicated that 69.7% of the fattening pigs were positive, but 81.2% tested positive serologically. all herds tested here were b ...200617007466
[surveillance of gastroenteritic infections in lower saxony: results and experiences from a regional public-health project over six years].in lower saxony, a regional public health project on a pathogen-specific surveillance of enteritis infectiosa was carried out from 1994 to 2000. in a separate reporting procedure thirteen health departments transmitted data on the specific pathogen collected from laboratory reports for a joint analysis. the results were distributed among the participants, providing them with information on the situation and trends in their districts and in addition giving them the possibility to compare their da ...200111735070
prevalence of yersinia enterocolitica in goat herds from northern germany.the prevalence of human pathogenic yersinia enterocolitica isolates in livestock farming is of paramount interest. raw goat milk has been proposed as a source of human yersiniosis; however, no data on the prevalence of human strains of y. enterocolitica in goat herds are available. therefore, fecal samples (n = 575) were collected from 24 goat herds from lower saxony, northern germany. pre-enrichment in peptone, sorbitol and bile salts broth was followed by plating on cefsuloidin irgasan novobio ...200617010042
yersinia enterocolitica isolates from wild boars hunted in lower saxony, germany.yersiniosis is strongly associated with the consumption of pork contaminated with enteropathogenic yersinia enterocolitica, which is harbored by domestic pigs without showing clinical signs of disease. in contrast to data on y. enterocolitica isolated from conventionally reared swine, investigations into the occurrence of y. enterocolitica in wild boars in germany are rare. the objectives of the study were to get knowledge about these bacteria and their occurrence in wild boars hunted in norther ...201525956779
simultaneous occurrence of salmonella enterica, campylobacter spp. and yersinia enterocolitica along the pork production chain from farm to meat processing in five conventional fattening pig herds in lower saxony.the objectives of this study were to gather data on the occurrence of salmonella (s.) enterica, campylobacter spp. and yersinia (y.) enterocolitica along the pork production chain and to further analyze detected salmonella isolates by additionally applying mlva (multiple-locus variable-number tandem repeat analysis). in total, 336 samples were collected at primary production, slaughter and meat processing from five conventional fattening pig farms and one common slaughterhouse. at farm level, s. ...201627529991
