frequency of escherichia coli o157:h7 in turkish cattle.in this study, five abattoirs in istanbul were visited between january 2000 and april 2001. during these visits, 330 cattle were selected by a systematic sampling method. cattle were examined clinically and breed, age, and sex were recorded. rectal swabs were taken immediately after slaughter. immunomagnetic separation was performed, and sorbitol-negative colonies were selected on sorbitol macconkey agar with cefixime and tellurite (ct-smac agar). these colonies were checked for 4-methylenebelli ...200212380752
contamination of bovine carcasses and abattoir environment by escherichia coli o157:h7 in istanbul.the aim of this study was to investigate contamination of carcasses and abattoir environment with escherichia coli o157:h7. five abattoirs in istanbul were visited between january 2000 and april 2001. during visits, sampling was performed and a total of 330 cattle were selected. cattle were examined for the presence of faeces on the hide (abdomen and legs) before slaughter. the swabs from the carcasses and environmental samples (abattoir floor, benches including conveyors, knives, aprons, saws, ...200312810296
detection and frequency of vt1, vt2 and eaea genes in escherichia coli o157 and o157:h7 strains isolated from cattle, cattle carcasses and abattoir environment in istanbul.the aim of this study was to detect vt1, vt2 and eaea genes and to determine the frequency of these genes in escherichia coli o157 and o157:h7 strains isolated from cattle, cattle carcasses and environmental samples of the 5 abattoirs located in istanbul, turkey. for this, the presence of vt1, vt2 and eaea genes in 26 strains of e. coli o157:h7 and 6 strains of o157 was investigated by multiplex-pcr. the results have shown that eaea gene was detected in all o157 and o157:h7 strains tested. both ...200616307816
wildlife rabies in western turkey: the spread of rabies through the western provinces of turkey.the incidence of rabies has decreased in turkey during recent years. however, an increasing number of rabies cases have been reported in the aegean (western) region of turkey. the virus appears to have maintained a foothold in the urban areas of the province of izmir with only three cases per year being reported during the mid-1990s. since 2001, the virus has been recorded in the previously rabies-free provinces of manisa and aydin. during this epizootic, cases have been reported in both dogs an ...200616490142
musca domestica l d.field strains of the house fly (musca domestica l. diptera: muscidae) were collected in april and september 2002 from cow farms (antalya, izmir) and garbage dumps (adana, ankara, istanbul, sanliurfa) in turkey. the resistance levels of first to fifth generation offspring were evaluated against six insecticides (cypermethrin, cyphenothrin, deltamethrin, permethrin, resmethrin, fenitrothion). resistance levels for pyrethroid group insecticides ranged from 23.27 (permethrin-istanbul fall strain) to ...200616859090
the status and seasonal changes of organophosphate and pyrethroid resistance in turkish populations of the house fly, musca domestica l. (diptera: muscidae).field strains of the house fly (musca domestica l. diptera: muscidae) were collected in april and september 2002 from cow farms (antalya, izmir) and garbage dumps (adana, ankara, istanbul, sanliurfa) in turkey. the resistance levels of first to fifth generation offspring were evaluated against six insecticides (cypermethrin, cyphenothrin, deltamethrin, permethrin, resmethrin, fenitrothion). resistance levels for pyrethroid group insecticides ranged from 23.27 (permethrin-istanbul fall strain) to ...200617249365
an abattoir survey on bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse) in turkey.the aim of this study was to investigate bovine spongiform encephalopathy (bse) in turkish cattle in the marmara region which borders the european union (eu). for this, cattle brought to abattoirs in istanbul were analysed. the high risk group were selected and therefore 384 cattle above 2 years old were included in the study. they were primarily examined for the presence of any clinical signs of nervous system and also other clinical disorders. the whole brains were taken and analysed for the p ...200718198543
aflatoxin m1 levels in uht milk and kashar cheese consumed in turkey.in the present study, 100 uht milk and 132 kashar cheese samples were analyzed for aflatoxin m1 (afm1). they were obtained from retail outlets in five big cities (istanbul, izmir, konya, tekirdag, edirne). the occurrence and concentration range of afm1 in the samples were investigated by competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (elisa) method. sixty-seven percent of the uht milk samples and 82.6% of the kashar cheese samples contained afm1. the positive incidence of afm1 in the uht milk sam ...200818700163
prevalence and antibiotic susceptibility of thermophilic campylobacter species on beef, mutton, and chicken carcasses in istanbul, turkey.we investigated the prevalence of contamination of retail-level beef, mutton, and broiler carcasses in istanbul, turkey, by thermophilic campylobacter spp. (tcs) and determined antimicrobial susceptibilities of the tcs strains isolated from these carcasses. from november 2005 to october 2006, 198 beef and 120 mutton carcass excision samples, and 232 chicken carcasses (whole and pieces) were randomly collected from different retail stores and meat-processing plants in istanbul. tcs were isolated ...200919432522
detection of aflatoxin m1 in human breast milk and raw cow's milk in istanbul, turkey.this survey was undertaken to determine the extent of aflatoxin m1 (afm1) contamination in human breast milk and raw cow's milk in istanbul, turkey. samples of human and raw cow's milk were collected randomly and analyzed for afm1 using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay and high-performance liquid chromatography with fluorescence detection in which the samples were cleaned up with immunoaffinity columns. in this study, afm, was detected in 8 (13.1%) of 61 human breast milk samples examined (m ...200919435244
[morphotyping, genotyping and investigation of some virulence factors in different morphotypes of candida parapsilosis clinical isolates].in recent years there is an increase in frequency of systemic candidiasis cases caused by candida parapsilosis. however there isn't any standardized genotyping method to be used in epidemiology of those infections. in this study we aimed to determine utility of morphotyping instead of genotyping to study the epidemiology of 53 c.parapsilosis strains isolated from blood (n= 40) and urine (n= 13) cultures of inpatients at marmara university hospital, istanbul, turkey. the isolates were morphotyped ...201021063973
