  • A North Carolina State University study of Campylobacter isolates from live food animals, poultry carcasses at production and retail meat has found that Campylobacter coli and Campylobacter jejuni are exchanging genetic material, which could result in more antibiotic-resistant and infectious strains. The findings are published in PLoS ONE. Both C. coli and C. jejuni are […]
  • Scientists from Hokkaido University, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul and Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro have revealed that substances in tick saliva activate immune response-suppressing proteins in cattle that facilitates the transmission of tick-borne diseases. The finding, published in Scientific Reports, could help in the development of alternative control strategies. The researchers […]
