Plasmid-borne colistin resistance gene mcr-3 in Salmonella isolates from human infections, Denmark, 2009-17

This report describes one Salmonella isolate harbouring bothmcr-1 andmcr-3. We also found nine other Salmonella isolates positive for the plasmid-borne colistin resistance gene,mcr-3. The strains were isolated from patients in Denmark between 2009 and 2017 and five of the patients had travelled to Asia. In addition tomcr-3, all strains were found positive forblaTEM-1,strA,strB,sul2 andtet(A) ortet(B), and most strains were positive forblaCTX-M-55 andqnrS.

Abstract As a rapid and facile means for foodborne bacteria detection in situ, lateral flow immunoassay (LFA) still has intrinsic limitations in the construction of the existing sandwich LFA format, e.g. screening difficulties of paired antibodies (Abs), poor stability of Ab probe, etc. Here, combined the strong affinity of antibiotic with the superior specificity of antibody molecules, a novel and robust LFA based on a dual recognition strategy and magnetic separation was designed to achieve specific and sensitive determination of Salmonella enteritidis (S. enteritidis). In this work, ampicillin (Amp), a broad-sp...

AbstractsThe research explores the facile synthesis of some new phenylsulfamoyl carboxylic acids, their molecular docking, antimicrobial, and antioxidant activities. The procedure involved the mild reaction of amino acids with benzenesulfonyl chloride in a medium of aqueous base. The compounds were characterized using FTIR,1H-NMR,13C-NMR, and an elemental analysis. They were tested for their antimicrobial activities against Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhi, Candida albicans, and Aspergillus niger microorganisms. The antioxidant activity of the compounds we...

Suttle Wang Phages infecting members of the opportunistic human pathogen, Salmonella enterica, are widespread in natural environments and offer a potential source of agents that could be used for controlling populations of this bacterium; yet, relatively little is known about these phages. Here we describe the isolation and characterization of 45 phages of Salmonella enterica from disparate geographic locations within British Columbia, Canada. Host-range profiling revealed host-specific patterns of susceptibility and resistance, with several phages identified that have a broad-host range (i.e., able to lyse &...

Salmonella adhesion to the host cell is an initial and most crucial step in the pathogenesis of salmonellosis. Many factors are involved in the adhesion process of Salmonella infection. Fimbriae are one of the most important factors in the adhesion of Salmonella. The Salmonella fimbriae are assembled in three types of assembl...

Abstract Antibiotic use in cattle can select for multidrug-resistant Salmonella enterica, which is considered a serious threat by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A randomized controlled longitudinal field trial was designed to determine the long-term effects of a single dose of ceftiofur or tulathromycin on Salmonella population characteristics among cattle feces, peripheral lymph nodes, and hides. A total of 134 beef cattle from two sources was divided among 12 pens, with cattle in each of the three-pen blocks receiving either a single dose of ceftiofur or tulathromycin on Day 0, or else neit...

This study was designed to assess the antimicrobial effect of pyruvic or succinic acid with oregano essential oil on Salmonella survival, composition of natural microflora, and resultant ground meat quality. Various concentrations of pyruvic (PA) and succinic acids (SA) with 0.5% essential oil (EO) were applied as immersion treatments for broiler breast meat. Salmonella Typhimurium was inoculated on breast meat to evaluate its post-treatment reduction in ground meat. For assessing impact of antimicrobial treatments on ground product, non-inoculated meat was treated with antimicrobials, ground, and stored for retail display...
