prevalence of gastrointestinal bacterial pathogens in a population of zoo animals.faecal prevalence of gastrointestinal bacterial pathogens, including campylobacter, escherichia coli o157:h7, salmonella, shigella, yersinia, as well as arcobacter, were examined in 317 faecal specimens from 44 animal species in belfast zoological gardens, during july-september 2006. thermophilic campylobacters including campylobacter jejuni, campylobacter coli and campylobacter lari, were the most frequently isolated pathogens, where members of this genus were isolated from 11 animal species (1 ...200818331520
genomic comparisons of salmonella enterica serovar dublin, agona, and typhimurium strains recently isolated from milk filters and bovine samples from ireland, using a salmonella microarray.salmonella-induced enterocolitis is the leading food-borne illness with a lethal outcome and causes millions of cases of gastroenteritis each year. we examined genomic variation among 12 environmental, veterinary, and clinical salmonella enterica serovar dublin, agona, and typhimurium strains isolated in ireland between 2000 and 2003, as well as two clinical isolates from canada and four archival isolates, which belonged to serovars dublin and agona. using dna-dna hybridization to a microarray c ...200515746367

comparison of salmonella species recovered from irish liquid milk production holdings with temporal clinical veterinary isolates.the presence of microbiological hazards in foodstuffs including, salmonella, form a major source of food-borne diseases in humans. in-line milk filters from 97 liquid milk production holdings in cork, the largest dairy region in ireland, were surveyed for the presence of salmonella species at herd level over a 2-year period (september 2001-september 2003). each dairy farm was visited 6 times at 4 monthly intervals (denoted by cycles a-f). six of the 97 herds (6%) were positive. ten isolates were ...200817980658
a preliminary study of salmonella, verocytotoxigenic escherichia coli/escherichia coli o157 and campylobacter on four mixed farms.the aims of this study were to investigate the incidence of salmonella, verocytotoxigenic escherichia coli (vtec)/escherichia coli o157 and campylobacter on four mixed farms and to characterize the isolates in terms of a range of virulence factors. eighty-nine composite (five different samples from the same animal species combined) faecal [cattle (24), pigs (14), sheep (4), poultry (4), horses (7), deer (4), dogs (9), rodents (2) and wild birds (20)] samples, 16 composite soil samples plus 35 in ...201121951421
