Isolation of multidrug-resistant Salmonella in Singapore.

Isolation of multidrug-resistant Salmonella in Singapore. Singapore Med J. 2015 Aug;56(8):e142-4 Authors: Phoon YW, Chan YY, Koh TH Abstract Multidrug-resistant Salmonella is a well-recognised problem worldwide, especially in developing countries such as India, where non-typhoidal Salmonella infections and enteric fever are endemic. Antimicrobial resistance, particularly to fluoroquinolones, is common and leads to the frequent use of alternative agents, such as azithromycin. We herein describe the first reported case of azithromycin-resistant Salmonella gastroenteritis in a Singaporean patient. PMID: 26311915 [PubMed - in process]

Publication date: Available online 11 December 2019Source: Journal of Microbiological MethodsAuthor(s): Miaomiao Hu, Dong Yang, Xiaoli Wu, Meng Luo, Feng XuAbstractTo establish a simple and rapid high-resolution melting curve (HRM) method, 5 different strains of Salmonella were identified by adding DNA denaturants at different concentrations into the HRM system to change the characteristics of DNA melting and to obtain different Tm (dissolving temperature) values of DNA from different target bacteria. When the concentration of n-butanol was 7% (v/v), the Tm value of the melting curve of the 5 strains changed from 89 °...

ConclusionsOur results indicate a polyclonal dissemination of mcr-1.1 in the environment surrounding the first MCR-producing E. coli strain reported in Ecuador. Our findings support the idea of lateral dissemination of mcr-1.1 gene between unrelated E. coli isolates

ConclusionThe online server and web-interface are aimed at facilitating the health organizations and medical councils to monitor the antibiotic prescription and their consumption in real time. This will not only augment the existing policy-making regarding drug-resistance programs but also promote the collection and downstream exploratory analysis of huge amount of data to get a deeper insight into the epidemiology of tuberculosis and related diseases.

Authors: Abraham A, Ifeanyi SS, Muinah F, Ibidunni Oreoluwa BS, Coulibaly KJ, Adeyemi AI Abstract Infections caused by non-typhoidal Salmonella (NTS) are common around the world, with high morbidity and mortality rates recorded annually. Salmonella serovars harbor plasmids of various sizes which may play roles in antibiotic resistance and virulence. The aim of this study was to profile and determine the role of plasmids in ciprofloxacin resistance and virulence of Salmonella serovars. Using alkaline lysis method 25 NTS serovars from food animals and humans were assayed for plasmids. Isolates ability to resist healt...

The World Health Organization earlier this year called antimicrobial resistance—pathogens’ ability to evade medical interventions—one of the 10 largest threats to global health. In the U.S. alone, according to a recent Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report, 35,000 people die each year due to antibiotic-resistant infections. A new study published in the BMJ points to one major propagator of the problem: doctors are prescribing antibiotics when they shouldn’t. In fact, up to 43% of U.S. antibiotic prescriptions may be “inappropriate,” according to the research. Antibioti...

In this study, a light-addressable potentiometric sensor (LAPS) deposited with highly oriented ZnO nanorod arrays (NRAs) was used for the label-free detection of single-stranded bacterial DNA (ssDNA). A functional, sensitive surface for the detection of Escherichia coli (E. coli) O157:H7 DNA was prepared by the covalent immobilization of the specific probe single-stranded DNA (ssDNA) on the LAPS surface. The functional surface was exposed to solutions containing the target E. coli ssDNA molecules, which allowed for the hybridization of the target ssDNA with the probe ssDNA. The surface charge changes induced by the hybridi...
