Infections caught from food and food-poisoning currently give rise to concern due to the serious effects they can have on humans. This is the case, for example, of the morbid forms of the species Listeria monocytogenes, a microbial species, widespread at the environmental level, which can be transmitted to humans by a wide range of foodstuffs. This research has concentrated on an important aspect of this species, and one which for many years has caused concern in the field of clinical microbiology: the sensitivity of these stocks to the most common antibiotics.
