International journal of food microbiology
A surveillance study to determine the prevalence of Campylobacter in a range of retail foods purchased in three Irish cities over a 20-month period between March 2001 and October 2002 found that the organism was not detected in any of the comminuted pork puddings, prepared vegetables and salads, retail sandwiches or cheeses made from unpasteurised milk.

The aim of this article is to highlight the differences between HA-MRSA and CA- MRSA and to propose standard definitions of the various subgroups of CA-MRsa. Expand
The aim of this article is to discuss the incidence due to a wide range of fungi, primarily Aspergillus and Candida species, as well as its diagnosis, including the importance of molecular-based approaches and various treatment regimes. Expand
Characteristics of the genus Arcobacter are described, which are considered as an emerging human pathogen, and is of significance towards animal health, and public health significance, culturing and typing, reservoirs, and antimicrobial studies are focused on. Expand
Aims: To investigate the incidence and genotype of Cryptosporidium parvum oocysts in drinking water sources in Northern Ireland for the period 1996–1999, and to compare conventional and molecular… Expand
Findings show bed classification on the basis of indicator organisms alone is not sufficient to assure the absence of bacterial, and no doubt viral, pathogens and may wish to consider whether tests for pathogens such as salmonella and campylobacter should be included when determining the suitability of shellfish for human consumption.

Journal of microbiological methods
This study investigated the various commercially available kits and 'in-house' methods to extract DNA from Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria, yeast and fungal agents in commonly employed blood culture material and indicated that a simple wash/alkali/heat lysis method was the most sensitive, reproducible, simple and cost-effective extraction method.Expand

BCC infection is associated with an accelerated decline in pulmonary function and BMI and infection with a single B. cenocepacia strain was associated with a more rapid decline in lung function than those infected with either B. multivorans or P. aeruginosa.Expand
The review then focuses on the worldwide problem of C. jejuni antimicrobial resistance and mechanisms of pathogenesis and virulence, and unravelling these areas will help with the development of new therapeutic agents and ultimately decrease illness caused by this important human pathogen. Expand
PCR has the potential to improve current detection capabilities greatly by differentiating the major human pathogens from non-pathogenic species, and will greatly facilitate a closer examination of the epidemiology of this important pathogen. Expand
