Title : Occurrence of antimicrobial resistant or pathogenic Vibrio parahaemolyticus in seafood. A mini review
Authors : O. A. ODEYEMI, D. STRATEV
Summary : Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a Gram-negative, non-sucrose fermenting marine halophilic bacterium. It is widely prevalent in the aquatic environment and is frequently isolated from seafood. Moreover, some V. parahaemolyticus strains isolated from seafood are pathogenic. V. parahaemolyticus is a human pathogen causing gastroenteritis after consumption of raw or undercooked seafood. Microbiological safety of seafood is of global concern in recent years due to outbreaks of seafood-borne pathogens such as V. parahaemolyticus. There has been recent increase of reports on antibiotic resistance among V. parahaemolyticus isolated from seafood. The emergence of antimicrobial resistant seafood-borne pathogens poses threat to human health. With regard to the increasing reports of V. parahaemolyticus food borne infections, we aimed to review occurrence of antibiotic resistant V. parahaemolyticus in selected seafood and its importance to consumers' health.
