Título Discovery of listeria among occupationally exposed persons
Título original Nálezy listérií u profesionálně exponovaných osob [en eslovaco]
Información bibliográfica May 1974, Vol.26, No.5, p.175-179. Illus. 25 ref.
Resumen The authors isolated Listeria (erysipelothrix) monocytogenes (L.m.) in the faeces, in smears from the upper airways, and on the skin (hands) and workclothes of workers in the meat industry, agricultural workers, and those employed in undertakings where listeriosis-infected animals were to be found. Cultures taken from these smears were positive for L.m., and this was confirmed by findings of higher levels of O,H-agglutinins and complement-binding antibodies in the workers examined, who all appeared to be in good health at the time of the examination. However, closer scrutiny of their history brought to light further evidence of possible infection: influenza-type symptoms, premature births, stillbirths, etc.
