The Benefits of Whole Genome Sequencing for Foodborne Outbreak Investigation from the Perspective of a National Reference Laboratory in a Smaller Country.

enabled an accurate cluster definition, which remained unsolved for the 2013 outbreak, partly due to scarce epidemiological linking with the suspect source. Moreover, it allowed detecting two and one ...

Use of a Whole Genome Sequencing-based approach for Mycobacterium tuberculosis surveillance in Europe in 2017-2019: an ECDC pilot study.

countries, 2218 RR / MDR- MTBC isolates were collected. Fifty-six cross-border clusters with increased likelihood of recent transmission (≤5 SNP s distance) comprising a total of 316 RR / MDR- MTBC isolates ...

Is the European Health Interview Survey online yet? Response and net sample composition of a web-based data collection.

organized using the EHIS wave 3 model questionnaire. The sample was selected according to a multistage, clustered sampling procedure with geographical stratification. Field substitution was applied; ...

Increased surface area of halloysite nanotubes due to surface modification predicts lung inflammation and acute phase response after pulmonary exposure in mice

Listeria surveillance in Belgium

evolution in molecular typing, the NRC completely switched to Whole-Genome-Sequencing (WGS) for cluster detection. Therefore, an in-house Galaxy-based bio-informatic pipeline was developed. For the strain ...

Streptococcus pyogenes infections with limited emm-type diversity in the homeless population of Brussels, 2016-2018.

Global burden of cancer and coronary heart disease resulting from dietary exposure to arsenic, 2015

used the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates of food consumption in 17 country clusters, in conjunction with the reported measurements of total and inorganic arsenic in different foods. We ...

Low hepatitis C prevalence in Belgium: implications for treatment reimbursement and scale up.

clustered sampling. RESULTS: In total 3209 specimens, collected by 28 laboratories, were tested. HCV seropositivity in the Belgian general population was estimated to be 0.22% (95% CI: 0.09-0.54%), and prevalence of ...

Relation between broiler and human Campylobacter jejuni strains isolated in Belgium from 2011 to 2013.

typing, antibiotic microbiological resistance profiling (AMR p), lipooligosaccharide class typing or virulence gene profiling (Vp). Clusters containing both human and broiler meat strains were more common ...

Orthogonal typing methods identify genetic diversity among Belgian Campylobacter jejuni strains isolated over a decade from poultry and cases of sporadic human illness.

multilocus sequence typing (MLST), PCR binary typing (P- BIT), and identification of lipooligosaccharide (LOS) biosynthesis locus classes. A total of 123 distinct sequence types (ST s), clustered in 28 clonal ...
