MORAES, Ivany Rodrigues de; GELLI, Dilma Scala; JAKABI, Miyoko and MASTRO, Nélida Lúcia Del. Study about the sensibility in vitro of different strains of Vibrio cholerae 01 exposed to 60 Co gamma radiation. Braz. J. Vet. Res. Anim. Sci. [online]. 1998, vol.35, n.6, pp.00-00.

The presence of some microorganisms in food, or the metabolites originated during their own multiplication, may bring several diseases to humans: intoxications and foodborne infections. Among the agents that may cause those diseases, we find Vibrio cholerae 01. In this experiment, the studies are focused on the radiosensibility in vitro of four strains of V. cholerae 01, exposed to different doses of ionizing radiation of 60Co. The results are compared with other data related to bacterial foodborne diseases, including water.
