CDC EID FEV 2007 Campylobacter Antimicrobial Drug Resistance among Humans, Broiler Chickens, and Pigs, France, A. Gallay et al.
Heartland virus (HRTV) is a recently described phlebovirus initially isolated in 2009 from 2 humans who had leukopenia and thrombocytopenia. Serologic assessment of domestic and wild animal populations near the residence of 1 of these persons showed high exposure rates to raccoons, white-tailed deer, and horses. To our knowledge, no laboratory-based assessments of viremic potential of animals infected with HRTV have been performed. We experimentally inoculated several vertebrates (raccoons, goats, chickens, rabbits, hamsters, C57BL/6 mice, and interferon-α/β/γ receptor–deficient [Ag129]) mice with this virus. All animals showed immune responses against HRTV after primary or secondary exposure. However, neutralizing antibody responses were limited.

BMC Public Health (2003) 3:39, December 09, 2003 Risk factors for antibiotic resistance in Campylobacter spp. isolated from raw For sampling, 122 retail stores throughout Switzerland and Liechtenstein were randomly selected. From March until July 2002, food safety inspectors of the cantonal laboratories collected 415 samples of raw poultry meat (whole chickens as well as parts such as cutlet, meat cut into strips, legs, drumsticks, wings, and breast) from selected stores. Additionally, information about housing type of the poultry (as labelled), the country of origin (as labelled), refrigeration (chilled, frozen), and packing of the samples was recorded. Of each sample, 10 g was inoculated into 100 ml selective enrichment broth (Brucella broth (211088, Becton Dickinson, Sparks, USA) with Campylobacter growth and selective supplement (SR084E, SR069E, Oxoid, Basingstoke, Hampshire, UK)) and incubated at 42°C for 24 h under microaerobic conditions provided by commercial gas packs (CampyGen from Oxoid). • foreign production vs.

CDC EID MAI 2004 Causative Agent of Pogosta Disease Isolated from Blood and Skin Lesions Pogosta disease is a viral disease, established to be identical with other diseases, Karelian fever and Ockelbo disease.[2][3] The names are derived from the words Pogosta, Karelia and Ockelbo, respectively. The symptoms of the disease include usually rash, as well as mild fever and other flu-like symptoms; in most cases the symptoms last less than 5 days. However, in some cases, the patients develop a painful arthritis. Veterinary Medicine and Public Health at CDC Lonnie J.

RVF is caused by RVF virus (RVFV) affecting humans and a wide range of animals. The virus is transmitted through bites from mosquitoes and exposure to viremic blood, body fluids, or tissues of infected animals.

The groups also sent a letter to the sole remaining manufacturer, Bayer, asking the company to consent to FDA’s ban on enrofloxacin (Baytril). FDA’s proposal is based on new evidence that this product increases the danger that humans will become infected with germs that are resistant to treatment. Bayer has 30 days to decide whether to consent to FDA’s proposed ban or to request a formal hearing on the proposed ban — a process that could take many months or even years.
