A bioinformatics WGS workflow for clinical complex isolate analysis, validated using a reference collection extensively characterized with conventional methods and approaches.

molecular biology-based approaches supplemented with public data. For SNP-based AMR prediction, results from molecular genotyping methods were supplemented with modified datasets allowing to greatly increase ...

Targeted LC-MS/MS combined with multilocus DNA metabarcoding as a combinatory approach to determine the amount and the source of pyrrolizidine alkaloids contamination in popular cooking herbs, seeds, spices and leafy vegetables

Publication Type: Peer reviewed scientific article Authors: Picron, Jean-François; philippe, Florian; Debrulle, Nelly; Els Van Hoeck; Giraud, Nicole; Séverine Goscinny; Vanhee, Celine Source: Food Additives & Contaminants: Part A (2021) Keywords: arom ...

Urban environment and mental health: the NAMED project, protocol for a mixed-method studyIntroductionMethods and analysisEthics and dissemination

characteristics and mental health are still not well understood. These associations are highly complex and require an interdisciplinary and integrated research approach to cover the broad range of mitigating ...

Deepening of In Silico Evaluation of SARS-CoV-2 Detection RT-qPCR Assays in the Context of New Variants

silico approach. Previously, we reported some mismatches between the oligonucleotides of publicly available RT-qPCR assays and SARS-CoV-2 genomes collected from GISAID and NCBI, potentially impacting ...

Assessment of hazards and risks associated with dietary exposure to mineral oil for the Belgian population

used as point of departure (PoD). Due to existing toxicological uncertainties, the margin of exposure (MOE) approach was applied. In all investigated scenarios, the MOE values were well above 100, ...

Position paper on the use of an “estimated acceptable concentration” (EAC) as basis for a control policy's action level for carcinogens unintentionally present in food

Background In the absence of legal maximum limits, the competent authority may act if high contamination levels that endanger public health are identified. A pragmatic approach to identify whether a value is ...

Update of the risk assessment of nickel in food and drinking water

lowest‐observed‐adverse‐effect‐level of 4.3 μg Ni/kg bw was selected as the reference point. The margin of exposure (MOE) approach was applied and an MOE of 30 or higher was considered as being indicative of a low health concern. The ...

Ecotoxicity profile of heavily contaminated surface water of two rivers in Tunisia

toxicological approaches. In the physicochemical analysis, the recorded levels of COD and TSS in both samples exceed the Tunisian standards. Using the analytical approach, several metals and some textile dyes ...

Acrylamide in other foods_Determination of acrylamide levels in some food categories and estimation of the exposure for the Belgian population

data of the most recent National Food Consumption Survey (FCS2014) and the risk of the Belgian consumer related to exposure of acrylamide was investigated using the Margin of Exposure approach. Service:  ...

Risk assessment of glycoalkaloids in feed and food, in particular in potatoes and potato‐derived products

for α‐solanine and α‐chaconine, mostly for potatoes. The acute dietary exposure to potato GA s was estimated using a probabilistic approach and applying processing factors for food. Due to the limited ...
