Shedding light on Salmonella carriers
Trends in Microbiology, 05/25/2012
Gopinath S et al. – The carrier state has also been described in livestock animals and is responsible for food–borne epidemics.

In this review, authors describe recent advances in molecular profiling of human carriers and the use of experimental models to identify potential host and bacterial genes involved in the establishment of the carrier state.
