Review of Nonfoodborne Zoonotic and Potentially Zoonotic Poultry Diseases.

Agnes Agunos, F William Pierson, Bwalya Lungu, Patricia A Dunn, Nathaniel Tablante,

Emerging and re-emerging diseases are continuously diagnosed in poultry species. A few of these diseases are known to cross the species barrier, thus posing a public health risk and an economic burden. We identified and synthesized global evidence for poultry nonfoodborne zoonoses to better understand these diseases in people who ... Read more >>

Metabolic parameters linked by phenotype microarray to acid resistance profiles of poultry-associated Salmonella enterica.

Jean Guard, Michael J Rothrock, Devendra H Shah, Deana R Jones, Richard K Gast, Roxana Sanchez-Ingunza, Melissa Madsen, John El-Attrache, Bwalya Lungu,

Phenotype microarrays were analyzed for 51 datasets derived from Salmonella enterica. The top 4 serotypes associated with poultry products and one associated with turkey, respectively Typhimurium, Enteritidis, Heidelberg, Infantis and Senftenberg, were represented. Datasets were partitioned initially into two clusters based on ranking by values at pH 4.5 (PM10 A03). ... Read more >>

Comparison of a real-time PCR method with a culture method for the detection of Salmonella enterica serotype enteritidis in naturally contaminated environmental samples from integrated poultry houses.

Bwalya Lungu, W Douglas Waltman, Roy D Berghaus, Charles L Hofacre,

Conventional culture methods have traditionally been considered the "gold standard" for the isolation and identification of foodborne bacterial pathogens. However, culture methods are labor-intensive and time-consuming. A Salmonella enterica serotype Enteritidis-specific real-time PCR assay that recently received interim approval by the National Poultry Improvement Plan for the detection of ... Read more >>

Comparison of real-time PCR with conventional PCR and culture to assess the efficacy of a live attenuated Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium vaccine against Salmonella enterica serovar Enteritidis in commercial leghorn chicks vaccinated under field and laboratory conditions.

W Drew Parker, Bwalya Lungu, Roy D Berghaus, Holly S Sellers, Ivan Ricardo Alvarado, Charles L Hofacre,

The efficacy of a live attenuated Salmonella Typhimurium Megan Vac 1 vaccine (MV1) was evaluated against Salmonella Enteritidis in chicken pullets with the use of PCR and culture methods. Two hundred Hyline W-32 white leghorn chicks were obtained from a local hatchery and divided into four treatment groups. Two of ... Read more >>

Listeria monocytogenes: antibiotic resistance in food production.

Bwalya Lungu, Corliss A O'Bryan, Arunachalam Muthaiyan, Sara R Milillo, Michael G Johnson, Philip G Crandall, Steven C Ricke,

Listeria monocytogenes is an opportunistic human pathogen that causes listeriosis, a disease that mainly affects the immunocompromised, the elderly, infants, and pregnant women. Listeriosis has become increasingly common in the last 25 years since the first foodborne outbreak was noted. Treatment for listeriosis currently consists primarily of supportive therapy in ...

The combination of energy-dependent internal adaptation mechanisms and external factors enables Listeria monocytogenes to express a strong starvation survival response during multiple-nutrient starvation.

Bwalya Lungu, Joshua C Saldivar, Robert Story, Steven C Ricke, Michael G Johnson,

The goal of this study was to characterize the starvation survival response (SSR) of a wild-type Listeria monocytogenes 10403S and an isogenic DeltasigB mutant strain during multiple-nutrient starvation conditions over 28 days. This study examined the effects of inhibitors of protein synthesis, the proton motive force, substrate level phosphorylation, and ... Read more >>
