Carry-over of some Fusarium mycotoxins in tissues and eggs of chickens fed experimentally mycotoxin-contaminated diets

diet, respectively. These transfers were fully eliminated 9–10 days after feeding the control diet again. These results indicate the transfer of ENN B, ENN B1  and BEA from feed to chicken offal, meat ...

Simultaneous determination of parabens, bisphenols and alkylphenols in human placenta by ultra-high performance liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry

0.5 to 3.9 ng g−1 for BPA, from 0.6 to 2.1 ng g−1 for BPF and from 0.8 to 1.3 ng g−1 for BPS. BPB and NP were not detected and OP levels ranged from 0.5 to 3.7 ng g g−1. The results demonstrate that the ...

High abundance and diversity of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli in faeces and tonsils of pigs at slaughter.

from a selected number of pigs were tested to study the diversity of blaESBL genes within E. coli isolates from one pig. Cefotaxime-resistant bacteria (based on enumeration results on MacConkey agar ...

Development and performance assessment of a luminex xMAP® direct hybridization assay for the detection and identification of indoor air fungal contamination.

identified with the classical method were also detected with the xMAP® assay, however in a shorter time frame. These results demonstrate that the Luminex xMAP® fungal assay developed in this study could ...

Strain- and Dose-Dependent Reduction of Toxoplasma gondii Burden in Pigs Is Associated with Interferon-Gamma Production by CD8(+) Lymphocytes in a Heterologous Challenge Model.

strain-dependent and inversely correlated with the infection dose. The results strongly indicate a change in the amount of parasite DNA and viable cysts in porcine tissues over time. Heterologous challenge ...

Antimicrobial resistance and virulence characterization of Staphylococcus aureus and coagulase-negative staphylococci from imported beef meat.

resistance phenotypes including harboring of resistance genes (mecA, cfr, gyrA, gyrB, and grlA) and biofilm formation. RESULTS: The resistance gene mecA was detected in 50% of methicillin-resistant ...

Discrimination of three genetically close Aspergillus species by using high resolution melting analysis applied to indoor air as case study.

for the discrimination between A. versicolor, Aspergillus creber and Aspergillus sydowii. RESULTS: Using HRM analysis, the discrimination of the 3 Aspergillus species could be made. No false positive, ...

Arsenic Release from Foodstuffs upon Food Preparation.

for inorganic As, and 32% for arsenobetaine. On the basis of a combination of our own results and literature data, we conclude that the extent of this release of arsenic species is species specific, ...

Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization-Time of Flight Mass Spectrometry for Combined Species Identification and Drug Sensitivity Testing in Mycobacteria.

results to current gold-standard methods. Drug susceptibility was tested for rifampin, isoniazid, linezolid, and ethambutol (M. tuberculosis, n = 39), and clarithromycin and rifabutin (NTM, n = 33). ...

Neonatal thyroid-stimulating hormone concentration and psychomotor development at preschool age.

concentration. Socioeconomic, parental and child potential confounding factors were measured through a self-administered questionnaire. RESULTS: TSH level was not significantly associated with total motor score ...
