clinical microbiology laboratories' adoption of culture-independent diagnostic tests is a threat to foodborne-disease surveillance in the united states.introductionin november 2015, the centers for disease control and prevention (cdc) sent a letter to state and territorial epidemiologists, state and territorial public health laboratory directors, and state and territorial health officials. in this letter, culture-independent diagnostic tests (cidts) for detection of enteric pathogens were characterized as "a serious and current threat to public health surveillance, particularly for shiga toxin-producing escherichia coli (stec) and salmonella" t ...201727795338
antimicrobial susceptibility profiles and strain type diversity of campylobacter jejuni isolates from turkeys in eastern north carolina.campylobacter jejuni is one of the most common bacterial causes of human gastroenteritis, and recent findings suggest that turkeys are an important reservoir for this organism. in this study, 80 c. jejuni isolates from eastern north carolina were characterized for resistance to nine antimicrobials, and strain types were determined by fla typing, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (pfge) with smai and kpni, and (for 41 isolates) multilocus sequence typing (mlst). pfge analysis suggested that many o ...200919028914
novel plasmid conferring kanamycin and tetracycline resistance in the turkey-derived campylobacter jejuni strain campylobacter spp., resistance to the antimicrobials kanamycin and tetracycline is frequently associated with plasmid-borne genes. however, relatively few plasmids of campylobacter jejuni have been fully characterized to date. a novel plasmid (p11601md; 44,095nt) harboring tet(o) was identified in c. jejuni strain 11601md, which was isolated from the jejunum of a turkey produced conventionally in north carolina. analysis of the p11601md sequence revealed the presence of a high-gc content cass ...201627268853
