MICROORGANISMS AS INDOOR AND OUTDOOR AIR BIOLOGICAL POLLUTION

Sylwia Siebielec/ Małgorzata Woźniak/ Anna Gałązka/ Grzegorz Siebielec

Abstract Air pollution is a major threat to human health. Biological air pollution is predominantly caused by the pollen of plants, fungi, bacteria and viruses. The main sources of microorganisms in the air include soil, water and the decomposition of organic matter, while anthropogenic sources are represented by landfills, wastewater treatment plants, composting facilities and traffic. Microorganism populations in the air can be seasonal or relatively constant, but the most frequent increase in(..)

RISK OF TRANSMISSION OF TICK-BORNE DISEASES BY BLOOD TRANSFUSION

Beata Fiecek/ Marta Matławska/ Elżbieta Gołąb/ Tomasz Chmielewski

Abstract The fear of blood transfusion-borne infections has been a problem since the beginning of the blood therapy era. One of the phases of all infectious diseases, including those transmitted by ticks, is the incubation period, during which there are no clinical symptoms due to the presence of microorganisms in the blood. For this reason, blood drawn from an infected donor can be a potential source of infection for the recipient at this time. Literature data show that there are no documented (..)

CRONOBACTER SPP. – THE SERIOUS RISK IN A BABY FOOD

Mateusz Gemba/ Elżbieta Rosiak/ Danuta Kołożyn-Krajewska

Abstract Cronobacter spp. are considered opportunistic pathogens in all age groups, especially in premature babies, children with low birth weight, the elderly and immunocompromised people. Currently, the genus Cronobacter includes seven species: C. sakazakii, C. malonaticus, C. turicensis, C. muytjesii, C. universalis, C. dublinensis and C. condimenti. The first three species of Cronobacter have been associated with clinical infections of newborns and premature babies. Cronobacter bacterial inf(..)

MECHANISMS OF DERMATOPHYTE RESISTANCE TO ANTIFUNGAL SUBSTANCES

Dominik Łagowski/ Sebastian Gnat/ Aneta Nowakiewicz

Abstract Dermatophytes are pathogenic fungi with high affinity for keratinised structures present in nails, skin, and hair causing superficial infections known as skin mycoses or dermatomycoses. The disease is characterised by variable prognosis. Its clinical picture is largely dependent on the immune status of the host and can range from local skin or subcutaneous infections to invasive, disseminated, and life-threatening infections. In the first decades of the 20th century, the first concerns (..)

INFLUENCE OF YEAST AND LACTIC ACID BACTERIA ON THE CONTENT OF VOLATILE COMPOUNDS AND OTHER OENOLOGICAL PARAMETERS OF WINES

Anna Stój

Abstract The effect of Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeast on the content of volatile compounds, ethanol, glycerol and volatile acidity of wines as well as the importance of inoculation with non-Saccharomyces and S. cerevisiae yeast for improving the aromatic complexity and characteristic features of wines were discussed in the paper. Moreover, the consequence of sequential inoculation of S. cerevisiae and lactic acid bacteria Oenococcus oeni on the content of volatile compounds, diacetyl, acetoine, (..)
