Who has ever had a gastroenteritis? In most cases, those responsible for this bad experience are Campylobacter and Salmonella, two zoonotic bacteria that are transmitted through the consumption of contaminated foods. In times of family encounters it is a good time to review some guidelines to avoid these cases in our homes.
With the theme of “Healthy Pig, Safe Pork, the 25th International Pig Veterinary Society (IPVS) Congress kicked off on June 11, 2018 in Chongqing. More than 5000 delegates attended the conference. While English was the official language of the meeting, the organization provided simultaneous translation to Chinese for all oral presentations. Different aspects of pig production were discussed during 4 days of intense scientific sessions. CReSA participation was centered in the bacterial and viral disease sessions.
A little over a month ago the“The European Union summary report on trends and sources of zoonoses, zoonotic agents and food-borne outbreaks in 2015” was issued, a joint initiative of the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
Next Thursday, November 7, CReSA is going to organize a session about “Campylobacter: from the farm to the table“, where the campilobacteriosi will be the focus of the discussion: its current situation and future prospects. This disease has become the most important one in the European Union and, in the last years, more than salmonelosis.
