Dramatic shift in the epidemiology of Salmonella enterica serotype Enteritidis phage types
in western Europe, 1998-2003--results from the Enter-net international Salmonella database.
Pathogenicity of Salmonella enteritidis phage type
1 isolate of Malaysia in 21 day old specific-pathogen-free chickens.
Two food samples collected at the implicated catering facility were culture positive for SE: 1) pork dumplings received raw and frozen and subsequently cooked and packaged by the implicated caterer (SE phage type
13) and 2) a sample of raw egg mixture from the egg bucket described previously (SE phage type
These various responses in mortality of chickens challenged with Salmonella enteritidis might depend on Salmonella enteritidis phage types
. Since the various strains of Salmonella enteritidis phage types
are found in poultry, many researchers have observed that Salmonella enteritidis phage types
are related to mortality in broilers.
Dr Deb Wilson told a board meeting of the Durham and Chester-le-Street Primary Care Trust that the Phage Type
56 strain of salmonella had only been discovered in 2002.
The Public Health Laboratory Service (PHLS) said that since September 26 there have been 102 cases reported of a type of salmonella called 'enteritidis phage type
14B', mostly acquired within England.
Yesterday, experts in Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Lothian, Grampian, Argyll, Borders and Forth Valley were still tracking down the source of the Salmonella, known as enteritidis phage type
People who have reported having this particular strain of salmonella - called Salmonella enteritidis phage type
5c - have come from Greater Glasgow, Lanarkshire, Lothian, Shetland, Grampian, Argyll and Clyde, Borders and Forth Valley.
enteritidis called phage type
4 that is killing hundreds of thousands of chickens in Europe and China.
What's more, most of the Southern California infections are due to a new, worrisome form of Salmonella enteritidis called "phage type
4." (Bacteria can be distinguished from one another by the phages, or viruses, that infect them.)
