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.
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. This work was published in Current Opinions in Biotechnology (2010;21:131–136).
Persistence of Human Noroviruses on Food Preparation Surfaces and Human Hands
Journal Article 1/1/2010
This study, published in Food and Environmental Virology (2009;1:141–147), examines the persistence of representative human noroviruses on the fingertips of volunteers and on commonly used food preparation surfaces.
A Method to Assess the Quality of Studies That Examine the Toxicity of Engineered Nanomaterials
Journal Article 1/1/2010
A two-step method to assess the quality of nanotoxicity studies is described in this article published in the International Journal of Toxicology (2010;29:402–410).
A Review of the Epidemiologic Evidence Concerning the Reproductive Health Effects of Caffeine Consumption: A 2000–2009 Update
Journal Article 1/1/2010
This article, published in Food and Chemical Toxicology (2010;48:2549–2576), reviews human studies on caffeine and reproductive health. The weight of evidence does not support a positive relationship between caffeine consumption and adverse reproductive or perinatal outcomes.
Selection and Characterization of DNA Aptamers With Binding Selectivity to Campylobacter jejuni Using Whole-Cell SELEX
Journal Article 1/1/2010
To 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. This study was published in Applied Microbiology and Biotechnology (2010;87:2323–2334).  
Added Sugars, Nutrient Intakes, and Grain-Based Foods
Newsletter/Bulletin 1/1/2010
Dietary guidances, around the world, all have similar concerns about added sugar as a potential source of excess calories. This feature article, published in the September issue of Cereal Foods World, explains added sugars by defining, measuring, and sharing how they are used.
The Definition of Dietary Fiber - Discussions at the Ninth Vahouny Fiber Symposium - Building Scientific Agreement
Journal Article 1/1/2010
This article, published in Food and Nutrition Research (2010;54), discusses that the scientific community agrees on maintaining a worldwide consensus regarding the inclusion of non-digestible carbohydrates with ≥DP3 as dietary fiber and on a core, non-exhaustive list of beneficial physiological effects that dietary fibers have.
Do Specific Dietary Constituents and Supplements Affect Mental Energy? Review of the Evidence
Journal Article 1/1/2010
The strongest evidence suggests effects of Ginkgo biloba on certain aspects of mood and on attention in healthy subjects, as well as associations between omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids and reduced risk of age-related cognitive decline. Limitations of the current data and challenges for future research are discussed in this article, published in Nutrition Reviews (2010;68:697–718).
Integrating the Totality of Food and Nutrition Evidence for Public Health Decision Making and Communication
Journal Article 1/1/2010
This article, published in Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition (2010;50 Suppl 1:1–8), defines three clear strategies for the use of weak associations when making nutritional recommendations.
