characteristics of yersinia enterocolitica and related species isolated from human, animal, and environmental sources.during a 4-year period, 4,448 human, animal, and environmental samples collected in new york state were tested for the presence of yersinia enterocolitica or related species. a total of 339 isolates were identified as yersinia and characterized according to source, species, biogroup, serogroup, and, in some instances, phage type. four new biogroups of y. intermedia were characterized. of 149 human isolates, 120 (80.5%) were identified as y. enterocolitica, and 29 were identified as either y. int ...19817287887

yersinia enterocolitica in oneida county, new a 7-month study during and after an outbreak of yersiniosis in oneida, n.y., a total of 963 specimens were examined for yersinia enterocolitica. of the 103 y. enterocolitica isolates recovered, 91 were from oneida county. sixty-two (60.2%) were from humans including 52 from oneida county. the isolates from the outbreak were mainly serotype 0:8, which on biotypnig proved to be niléhn type 2, wauters type 1, knapp and thal type 2. the rest of the isolates were distributed among various biotypes ...1979575321
epidemic yersinia enterocolitica infection due to contaminated chocolate september and october, 1976, an outbreak of illness due to chocolate milk contaminated with yersinia enterocolitica resulted in hospitalization of 36 children, 16 of whom had appendectomies. infection with y. enterocolitica serotype 0:8 was demonstrated in 38 ill persons. sixty-one per cent of the persons who were infected had a titer greater than 1:160 oh agglutinins to serotype 8 yersinia, whereas 48 per cent of the hospitalized children had a fourfold change in agglutinin titer. an epidemi ...1978579433
current trends of yersinia enterocolitica isolates in the new york city area.during an 8.5-year period (1974 to 1982), 56 yersinia enterocolitica isolates from patients residing mainly in the new york city area were studied. evaluation of these isolates revealed a marked increase in bacteremic episodes caused by strains of serogroups of o:3 and o:5,27 and the overall emergence of serogroup o:3, biotype 4, phage type 9b y. enterocolitica. of the serogroup o:3 stool isolates, 59% (19/32) were recovered from patients in their first year of life. one of these subjects had co ...19836826710
epidemiologic investigation of a yersinia camp outbreak linked to a food july 1981, an outbreak of gastroenteritis occurred at a summer diet camp. of the 455 campers and staff, 35 per cent developed an illness characterized by abdominal pain, fever, diarrhea, and/or nausea and vomiting. a total of 53 per cent experienced abdominal pain. seven persons were hospitalized, five of whom had appendectomies. yersinia enterocolitica serogroup 0:8 was isolated from 37 (54 per cent) of 69 persons examined, including the camp cook and three assistants. an epidemiologic inves ...19846721015

yersinia enterocolitica and related species isolated from wildlife in new york state.fecal specimens for yersinia screening were obtained from a variety of wild mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, and invertebrates throughout new york state. one specimen from each of 1,426 animals was examined. a total of 148 isolates of yersinia enterocolitica and related species were obtained from 133 (9.3%) of the animals. y. enterocolitica was isolated from 100 (7%) of the animals tested, including 81 (10%) of 812 mammals and 19 (3.3%) of 573 birds. y. intermedia, y. frederiksenii, and y. kriste ...19863767355
prevalence of unique yersinia enterocolitica in the area of the mount sinai hospital, new york, n.y.the incidence of infection due to yersinia enterocolitica is unknown in the united states as well as in a given geographic locale such as new york city. comparison of 10 y. enterocolitica strains recovered at nine hospitals in the new york city area to 22 isolated at the mount sinai hospital revealed striking differences in clinical presentation of disease, biochemical behavior of the isolates and their serological profiles. the 10 strains were from patients with 'classical syndromes', were bioc ...1979535396
a multiplex pcr/ldr assay for simultaneous detection and identification of the niaid category b bacterial food and water-borne pathogens.enteric pathogens that cause gastroenteritis remain a major global health concern. the goal of this study was to develop a multiplex pcr/ligation detection reaction (ldr) assay for the detection of all niaid category b bacterial food and water-borne pathogens directly from stool specimens. to validate the pcr/ldr assay, clinical isolates of campylobacter spp., vibrio spp., shigella spp., salmonella spp., listeria monocytogenes, yersinia enterocolitica, and diarrheagenic escherichia coli were tes ...201424709368
