I. EPIDEMIOLOGY OF SALMONELLA INFECTIONSMost Salmonella strains belong to non-host specific or broad-host range serotypes, and thus can colonize the gut of many animal species, including humans. In contrast to host-specific serotypes that cause septicemia and severe disease (typhoidal serotypes), the broad-host range serotypes are asymptomatically colonising the host in most cases, but can cause d ...

IntroductionAnimals used for food production have been genetically selected for feed intake and muscle development (or milk and egg production) and are therefore divergent from their ancestors. In addition, these animals are reared in conditions that favor fast spread of pathogens. The high uptake of feed and the fast growth make these animals prone to intestinal disorders, what has ...

I. INTRODUCTION One of the most sustainable types of production of animal protein is chicken meat production. Chicken production needs less feed consumption per kilogram of produced meat and uses less land and water for both farming and feed production. The major reason for this is the continuous improvement of animal performance, reflected in an ever decreasing feed conversion (kg feed consumed ...

The global trend away from the use of antimicrobials in many poultry production systems and rapid advances in the understanding of the chicken gut microbiome are changing the way the industry looks at the microbiome, as a functional organ that performs essential functions in the birds. The chicken gut microbiome contains more genetic potential than the chicken itself and produces thousands of meta ...

A probiotic strain (bacillus subtilis DSM 29784, BS29784) is capable of inducing beneficial effects on growth performance and could be therefore a reliable alternative to antibiotic growth promoters. The underlying mechanisms of probiotics, however, are often not fully understood. An in vivo investigation of microbiota profile aimed to observe a positive effect of BS29784 on butyrate producer bact ...
