MLVA as a tool for public health surveillance of human Salmonella Typhimurium: prospective study in Belgium and evaluation of MLVA loci stability.

susceptibility testing and the in Europe most commonly used 5-loci MLVA on 1,420 S. Typhimurium isolates collected between 2010 and 2012 in Belgium, was used to evaluate the added value of MLVA for public health ...

Evaluation of a screening system for obesogenic compounds: screening of endocrine disrupting compounds and evaluation of the PPAR dependency of the effect.

Transcriptional Activation Abstract: Recently the environmental obesogen hypothesis has been formulated, proposing a role for endocrine disrupting compounds (EDC s) in the development of obesity. To evaluate this ...

Modelling aluminium leaching into food from different foodware materials with multi-level factorial design of experiments.

Parameter influence (temperature: x₁, contact time: x₂, pH: x₃, salt concentration: x₄, viscosity: x₅), was evaluated with analysis of variance suggesting that the influence of viscosity is not significant ...

Neonatal thyroid-stimulating hormone concentrations in Belgium: a useful indicator for detecting mild iodine deficiency?

below 3% has been proposed as the threshold indicating iodine sufficiency. The objective of the present study was to evaluate feasibility and usefulness of nation-wide neonatal TSH concentration screening ...
