|Abstract:||Salmonella spp. can cause severe diarrhea in humans after consumption of contaminated food. Because bacteriophages are powerful agents for the control of food borne pathogens, several phages were isolated and characterized. Here we present an initial characterization of Salmonella phage isolates. Moreover, bacteriophages were applied to reduce viable cell counts of Salmonella in vitro. The data indicate that Salmonella can be efficiently eliminated by the application of phage cocktails containing a minimum of two phage isolates, while treatment of the bacteria with only a single phage isolate often resulted in regrowth of the treated culture.|
