Mapping occurrence of Taenia solium taeniosis/cysticercosis and areas at risk of porcine cysticercosis in Central America and the Caribbean basin.

were geo-referenced to identify department level distribution and compared to modelled distributions of pigs reared under extensive production systems. RESULTS: We identified 51 records of T. solium at ...

Epidemiology of taeniosis/cysticercosis in Europe, a systematic review: Western Europe.

of T. solium in pigs were found in Austria and Portugal, but only the two cases from Portugal were confirmed with molecular methods. Germany, Spain and Slovenia reported porcine cysticercosis, but made ...

Present status of laboratory diagnosis of human taeniosis/cysticercosis in Europe.

establish in the human central nervous system (neurocysticercosis, NCC) and other organs and tissues; they also develop in pigs, the natural intermediate host. Human taeniosis may be caused by T. solium, ...

Belgian Wildlife as Potential Zoonotic Reservoir of Hepatitis E Virus.

determine in which situation deer can serve as reservoir. These results also raise the question of the dynamics of HEV infection between wild fauna, domestic pigs and humans. Health Topics:  Health and ...

Antimicrobial resistance surveillance in Escherichia coli by using normalized resistance interpretation.

Interpretation (NRI) method. METHODS: The susceptibilities of 921 E. coli isolates from clinically healthy pigs at slaughter age was determined for 15 antimicrobials by the Kirby Bauer disk diffusion technique. ...

CystiSim- An Agent-Based Model for Taenia solium Transmission and Control.

(ODD) protocol and consists of two entities-pigs and humans. Pigs acquire cysticercosis through the environment or by direct contact with a tapeworm carrier’s faeces. Humans acquire taeniosis from ...

Estimation of hepatitis E virus (HEV) pig seroprevalence using ELISA and Western blot and comparison between human and pig HEV sequences in Belgium.

of special concern, particularly in high income countries were waterborne infections are less frequent than in developing countries. High HEV seroprevalences can be found in European pig populations. ...

Pleuromutilins: use in food-producing animals in the European Union, development of resistance and impact on human and animal health.

and to a lesser extent for poultry and rabbits. In pigs, tiamulin and valnemulin are used to treat swine dysentery, spirochaete-associated diarrhoea, porcine proliferative enteropathy, enzootic ...

Macrolides and lincosamides in cattle and pigs: use and development of antimicrobial resistance.

treatment of many common infections in cattle and pigs. Products for in-feed medication with these compounds in combination with other antimicrobials are commonly used in Europe. Most recently approved ...

Livestock veterinarians at high risk of acquiring methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus ST398.

direct association was found for LA- MRSA acquisition and exposure to live pigs (OR 12·1, 95% CI 1·6-548·5, P=0·01). Since carriage of MRSA ST398 may increase the risk of complications during ...
