The sample can be tissue, blood, swab, stool, or any sample that contains the pathogen
Plants with fine highly branched roots may benefit less from mycorrhizae for nutrient acquisition but benefit more from pathogen
protection, as indicted by studies on Vulpia ciliata (Newsham el al, 1995a; Newsham et al, 1995b) and Setaria glauca (Sikes et al.
of wildlife affect not only human health and agricultural production but also wildlife-based economies and wildlife conservation.
Water that contains pathogens
can come into contact with crops both during irrigation and in subsequent washing of harvested produce or its storage in ice.
Boggess indicated two weaknesses of the study: Detected pathogens
could reside in the vagina of affected patients, causing fetuses to be exposed via pathogen
ascent through the vagina; and the vaginal bleeding detected in this study may have actually been from some undetected underlying cause.
The findings indicate that "dental plaque is a reservoir of (pneumonia-causing) respiratory pathogens
," and that "nursing homes and other institutions housing frail elderly should be involved actively in improving daily oral hygiene of their residents and enhancing access to dental care," El-Solh said.
With some exceptions, Dohar et al contend that a pathogen
is defined as an organism that is recovered with at least a 2+ growth index.
The strategy of using expression libraries as vaccines has worked with several types of bacterial pathogens
There's certainly some similarity between efforts to regulate foodborne pathogens
and genetically modified foods, respectively: Neither industry wants it.
It may be possible to trace the path that a food product has traveled, but it is difficult to identify where a pathogen
may have entered the product," adds Ken Olson, dairy and animal health specialist for the American Farm Bureau Federation.
Definitions from the text of OSHA's Bloodborne Pathogen
Currently, methods to determine the risk of disease from pathogens
in land disposed sludge are inadequate because the sensitivity of pathogen
detection is poor.
