Abstract
An outbreak of listeriosis in Sweden, consisting of nine cases, was investigated by means of molecular typing of strains from patients and strains isolated from suspected foodstuffs, together with interviews of the patients. Listeria monocytogenes was isolated from six of the patients, and all isolates were of the same clonal type. This clonal type was also isolated from a "gravad" rainbow trout, made by producer Y, found in the refrigerator of one of the patients. Unopened packages obtained from producer Y were also found to contain the same clonal type of L. monocytogenes. Based on the interview results and the bacteriological typing, we suspect that at least six of the nine cases were caused by gravad or cold-smoked rainbow trout made by producer Y. To our knowledge, this is the first rainbow trout-borne outbreak of listeriosis ever reported.

Abstract
The first lesson learned from this outbreak was that vacuum-packed rainbow trout is not only an excellent medium for the growth of Listeria monocytogenes, but may also cause human listeriosis. Another lesson is that one single fish processing plant may spread multiple clonal types of L. monocytogenes by selling contaminated products to consumers. Thus, when investigating fish-borne outbreaks of listeriosis one should identify and type several isolates of L. monocytogenes from each food and environmental sample, since multiple clonal types might be present. The outbreak described in this paper involved at least eight human cases, three clonal types of L. monocytogenes, and lasted for 11 months. During the outbreak investigation, L. monocytogenes was also isolated from another brand of rainbow trout found in the refrigerator of one of the patients. These latter isolates belonged to a clonal type not associated with the outbreak. However, this clonal type is of considerable interest since it has been associated with foodborne outbreaks of listeriosis in several countries, and is also the second most common clonal type among human clinical isolates of L. monocytogenes in Sweden. Besides the described outbreak, it is likely that vacuum-packed, cold-smoked and gravad rainbow trout have been involved in additional cases of foodborne listeriosis in Sweden.

Abstract
'Gravad' rainbow trout artificially contaminated with Listeria monocytogenes was analyzed by use of a 4 h enrichment period followed by extraction of DNA and PCR amplification. This procedure made it possible to detect 10-100 cfu L. monocytogenes per gram 'gravad' rainbow trout, within 12 h. After a prolonged enrichment period of 24 h, numbers as low as 1-10 cfu L. monocytogenes per gram could be detected. The method described may be a useful tool for screening samples of 'gravad' rainbow trout for the presence of L. monocytogenes, since it is sensitive, rapid and simple.

Abstract
This study evaluated the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamic effects of the glucokinase activator (GKA) AZD6370 in non-diabetic subjects, using the euglycaemic clamp to avoid the risk of hypoglycaemia.
Oral single ascending doses of AZD6370 10-650 mg or subcutaneous short-acting insulin 4 or 12 U were given to healthy fasting subjects. AZD6370 safety, tolerability and pharmacokinetics were assessed. Pharmacodynamic effects on serum (S)-insulin and glucose infusion rate (GIR) were investigated with euglycaemic clamp. AZD6370 10-20 mg was also assessed when taken with food without euglycaemic clamp.
AZD6370 was well tolerated and no safety concerns were raised. AZD6370 was rapidly absorbed and eliminated, and plasma concentration was proportional to dose. Both S-insulin and GIR increased following AZD6370 administration. The observed increase in GIR correlated with increasing AZD6370 area under the plasma concentration vs. time curve, demonstrating a dose-concentration-dependent pharmacodynamic effect. AZD6370 at doses of 50 and 80 mg had similar effects to short-acting insulin 4 U on peripheral S-insulin levels but greater effects on GIR, suggesting an effect beyond the increase of peripheral S-insulin levels at lower doses. In the food interaction part of the study, performed without euglycaemic clamp, dose escalation was stopped at a low dose (20 mg) because of hypoglycaemia.
The euglycaemic clamp was successfully used to avoid hypoglycaemia and to demonstrate pharmacodynamic effects, that is, markedly increased insulin secretion and glucose utilisation, following administration of AZD6370 in healthy fasting subjects. In addition to the effect on pancreatic insulin secretion, the data support an extra-pancreatic (hepatic) component of GKA action.

Abstract
In Sweden, many Listeria monocytogenes strains belonging to serovar 4b and isolated during the last five years from different sources share the same phagovar--2389:2425:3274:2671:47:108:340. The object of the present study was to investigate if 31 L. monocytogenes serovar 4b strains belonging to this particular phagovar could be differentiated by use of a simple restriction endonuclease analysis (REA). Among the enzymes tested, Xho I was found to be the most useful, since this enzyme could divide the 31 strains into five groups. The profiles of all human clinical isolates were indistinguishable from each other, which indicates that these strains may represent a single clone. The food isolates and the strains of human origin did not share the same profile. This further characterization may be of epidemiological importance as this phagovar of L. monocytogenes has been associated with at least two outbreaks of human listeriosis in Europe.
