ILSI publishes articles on original research, literature reviews and gap analyses, and meeting proceedings primarily in peer-reviewed journals. ILSI also publishes books, monographs, white papers, and other reports through ILSI Press.



Guidance for Assessing the Probiotics Beneficial Effects: How to Fill the GAP (ILSI Europe Publication)
Journal Article 1/1/2010

Based on the existing evidence, concrete examples of demonstration of benefits and gaps are listed in this article, and guidelines and recommendations are defined that should help design the next generation of probiotic studies.

Threshold Dose for Peanut: Risk Characterization Based upon Diagnostic Oral Challenge of a Series of 286 Peanut-allergic Individuals
Journal Article 1/1/2010
Clinical records of 286 consecutive patients reacting positively with objective symptoms to double-blind, placebo-controlled oral peanut challenges at University Hospital, Nancy, France were examined for individual No Observed Adverse Effect Levels (NOAELs) and Lowest Observed Adverse Effect Levels (LOAELs).
The Tricks Learnt by Human Enteric Pathogens from Phytopathogens to Persist within the Plant Environment.
Journal Article 1/1/2010
Through recent advances in our understanding of microbial:plant interactions it is becoming apparent that human pathogens, principally, Escherichia coli O157:H7 and Salmonella are adapted to survive in the plant environment. The aforementioned pathogens have surface epitopes that can bind to plant structures such as stomata to aid attachment.
Comparison of Virulence of Three Strains of Cronobacter sakazakii in Neonatal CD-1 Mice
Journal Article 1/1/2010
The study objective was to compare the virulence of three strains of C. sakazakii in neonatal CD-1 mice. Our findings suggest that invasiveness does not necessarily correlate with mortality among different strains of C. sakazakii, and the clinical isolates are more virulent than the food isolate.
Selection and Characterization of DNA Aptamers with Binding Selectivity to Campylobacter jejuni using Whole-Cell SELEX
Journal Article 1/1/2010

Identify DNA aptamers demonstrating binding specificity to Campylobacter jejuni cells, a whole-cell Systemic Evolution of Ligands by EXponential enrichment (SELEX) method was applied to a combinatorial library of FAM-labeled single-stranded DNA molecules. Whole-cell SELEX is a promising technique to design aptamer-based molecular probes for microbial pathogens without tedious isolation and purification of complex markers or targets.


Persistence of Human Noroviruses on Food Preparation Surfaces and Human Hands
Journal Article 1/1/2010
This study examines the persistence of representative human noroviruses on the fingertips of volunteers and on commonly used food preparation surfaces.
Prebiotic Effects: Metabolic and Health Benefits
Journal Article 1/1/2010
British Journal of Nutrition 2010; 104(Suppl.2):S1-S63
Intake of Added Sugars and Selected Nutrients in the United States, National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) 2003—2006
Journal Article 1/1/2010

The primary objectives of this study were to utilize National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) to update the reference table data on intake of added sugars from the IOM report and compute food sources of added sugars.

A Method to Assess the Quality of Studies That Examine the Toxicity of Engineered Nanomaterials
Journal Article 1/1/2010

A 2-step method to assess the quality of nanotoxicity studies is described.

An Appraisal of the Published Literature on the Safety and Toxicity of Food-Related Nanomaterials
Journal Article 1/1/2010

An evaluation to characterize the published literature pertaining to the safety of oral exposure to food-related nanomaterials and to identify research needs in this area.
