Special Issue "Salmonella and Salmonellosis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (20 September 2021).
Interests: bacterial zoonoses
Salmonella spp. are recognized as major zoonotic foodborne pathogens of economic significance in animals and humans. Among the over 2600 serotypes of Salmonella species described, clinical manifestations and mortality differ according to both bacterium and host characteristics. Most serotypes are non-pathogenic for animals but highly pathogenic for humans. Pigs and poultry are the main source of human infections. To protect consumers’ health, authorities from many countries harmonize baseline studies and control programs in different countries to control these important zoonoses.
The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a collection of articles that showcase the current issues in the research of “Salmonella and Salmonellosis”. As the Guest Editor, I invite you to submit research articles, review articles, and short communications dealing with Salmonella genetic variability, antimicrobial resistance emergence, clinical outbreaks, microbioma, dissemination of pathogenic clones, risk factors, salmonellosis control, and techniques for rapid detection of the pathogen.
