International Conference on the Epidemiology and Control of Biological, Chemical and Physical Hazards in Pigs and Pork
Iowa State University Conferences and Symposia

The SafePork conference series began in 1996 to bring together international researchers, industry, and government agencies to discuss current Salmonella research and identify research needs pertaining to both pig and pork production. In subsequent years topics of research presented at these conferences expanded to include other chemical and biological hazards to pig and pork production.

Abstract

Pork is a potential source of infection for Yersinia, Hepatitis E virus and Trichinella. In 2014, 2484 cases of yersiniosis, 671 hepatitis E cases and 1 trichinellosis case were reported in Germany. Although migrants represent 27% of Berlin inhabitants, data is lacking on subpopulation-specific exposure risks to zoonotic diseases. We aimed to estimate the seroprevalence and to identify potential risk factors for Yersinia, Hepatitis E and Trichinella in migrants and non-migrants in Berlin/Brandenburg.
