The applications of bacteriophages and their lysins as biocontrol agents against the foodborne pathogens Listeria monocytogenes and Campylobacter: An updated look

The applications of bacteriophages and their lysins as biocontrol agents against the foodborne pathogens Listeria monocytogenes and Campylobacter: An updated look

Veterinaria Italiana 54(4): 311-311

Listeria monocytogenes and Campylobacter spp. are foodborne pathogens responsible for outbreaks and disease in humans. The emerging problem of bacterial antibiotic resistance and the persistence of pathogens in the environment, especially where foods are processed, are some of the reasons that have led to a re‑emerging interest in bacteriophages and their lysins as potential candidates for bio‑control. This review focuses on the use of bacteriophages and their lysins as alternative strategies for controlling the foodborne pathogens L. monocytogenes and Campylobacter spp. In addition, the application of bacteriophages and their lysins in food safety and animal health, as well as phage‑resistance development, legislation, and future prospects were discussed.
