Conclusion: Poultry sources are recognized as a significant cause for non-typhoidal salmonellosis. Therefore, hygienic measures should be initiated to reduce the contamination of meat and poultry products with virulent strains of Salmonella that are of public health significance.

ConclusionsTo our knowledge, this is the first report of genomic characterization of NDM-1 producing E. cloacae and ESBL producing E. coli that were co-isolated from a urinary tract infection in China. The two strains inhabiting in the same environment may give them the chance for horizontal transfer of blaNDM-1 and blaCTX-M-27 which makes clinical treatment even difficult. Our report also shed light on a geographically distinct Enterobacteriaceae strains from China enabling a comparative analysis of NDM-1 or ESBL producing strains.

ConclusionsResults of the study reveal that theEnterobacter strains from hospital settings are both resistant to clinically-used antimicrobials and tolerant to biocides. Biocide tolerance could be an advantage for prevalence of antibiotic-resistant strains in hospitals.

ConclusionThese data provide useful information for comparative genomic analysis regarding the dissemination of antibiotic resistance genes in K. pneumoniae. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a MDR K. pneumoniae with high colistin resistance belonging to ST78 causing infections in human beings.

Publication date: 15 July 2019Source: Sensors and Actuators B: Chemical, Volume 291Author(s): J. Achuth, R.M. Renuka, S. Naveen, K. KadirveluAbstractStaphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is commensal bacteria implicated in various opportunistic infections worldwide. Their numerous virulence factors along with mounting antibiotic resistance is an ominous problem associated with its clinical management. Among the numerous S. aureus virulence factors, toxic shock syndrome toxin 1 (TSST-1) is a superantigen that is pivotal in life-threatening multisystem disorder. The present study reports the development of a fluorescence resonan...
