Luminex® Multiplex Bead Suspension Arrays for the Detection and Serotyping of Salmonella spp.
In this chapter we describe two commercially available bead-based molecular assays for detection, identification and serotyping of Salmonella. The xTAG® Gastrointestinal Pathogen Panel (GPP) is a qualitative multiplex test for the simultaneous detection of nucleic acids from Salmonella plus 14 other gastroenteritis-causing bacteria, viruses, and parasites from stool specimens. xTAG GPP uses the Luminex® xTAG universal array technology for the identification of specific target sequences combined with the xMAP® bead multiplexing platform for detection of the targets that were present in the starting sample.

Applications of Microscopy in Salmonella Research
Salmonella enterica is a Gram-negative enteropathogen that can cause localized infections, typically resulting in gastroenteritis, or systemic infection, e.g., typhoid fever, in humans and many other animals. Understanding the mechanisms by which Salmonella induces disease has been the focus of intensive research. This has revealed that Salmonella invasion requires dynamic cross-talk between the microbe and host cells, in which bacterial adherence rapidly leads to a complex sequence of cellular responses initiated by proteins translocated into the host cell by a type 3 secretion system. Once these Salmonella-induced respon...

How Long Before Gastroparesis Improves?
Discussion “[Gastroparesis] (GP) is a motor and sensory disorder of the stomach characterized by delayed gastric emptying in the absence of mechanical obstruction. Symptoms classically include nausea, vomiting, early satiety, bloating, postprandial fullness, abdominal pain and weight loss….GP is often not recognized and thus can remain untreated in children.” In the adult population, the age adjusted prevalence of GP is 9.6 (for men) and 37.8 (for women) per 100,000. There is no specific prevalence data available for children. It appears from some data that GP identification is rising and some data sugges...
