Review of literature concerning the significance of several zoonoses with regard to meat consumption. XIV Streptococcus

Literatuuronderzoek naar gegevens betreffende de betekenis van een aantal verwekkers van zoonosen in verband met de vleesconsumptie XIV Streptococcen

Synopsis

Streptococci are ubiquitous micro-organisms in man and animals. This literature search is restricted to those species which are found in slaughter animals and can cause disease in humans. Infections with S.zooepidemicus and S.suis can be considered as zoonotic infections. However, the consumption of meat has never led to a streptococcal infection in man. Eradication of S.zooepidemicus and S.suis in animals will prevent infections with these micro-organisms in man.
