Epidemiological data description of pediatric patients with diarrhea by Aeromonas spp. and the antibiotic susceptibility of this agent.

[Epidemiological data description of pediatric patients with diarrhea by Aeromonas spp. and the antibiotic susceptibility of this agent]. Rev Argent Microbiol. 2019 Jun 24;: Authors: Del Valle de Toro A, Santos-Pérez JL, Navarro-Marí JM, Gutiérrez-Fernández J Abstract The aim of our study was to describe the epidemiological features of pediatric patients with diarrhea caused by Aeromonas spp. and to study the antibiotic susceptibility of this agent during a seven-year period. Aeromonas caviae was identified in 93 stool samples from 52.2% males and 85.6% patients younger than 36 months. The season with the lowest number of isolates was winter (14.4%). Co-infection with other diarrheagenic microorganisms was observed in 31.1% of the cases. The largest number of isolates was obtained from Emergency Department samples (45.6%); 43.3% of the patients presented with fever, 87.8% with diarrhea (43% of these cases were associated with pathological products) and 67.8% with vomiting, while 73.3% of the patients did not require hospital admission. Susceptibility higher than 87% was observed to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, ciprofloxacin, cefotaxime and cefepime. All the patients overcame the infectious process and 63.3% of them did not receive any antibiotic treatment during the process. A. caviae was the isolated species associated with intestinal infection. Antibiotic treatment would be specifically indicated in cases selected for their...

Along with the rapid growth of fish production, increased emergence and outbreak of numbers of diseases pose harm to the aquaculture industry and food safety. From the efficient, safe, environmental and ethical aspects, vaccines is definitely the most appropriate and focused method to control different kinds of fish diseases. In China, researchers h...

Recently, Streptococcus agalactiae has become a major pathogen leading to Streptococcosis. To understand the physiological responses of zebrafish (Danio rerio) to S. agalactiae, the intestinal microbiota composition of the intestine (12 and 24 h post-infection, hpi, respectively) in zebrafish infected with S. agalactiae were investigated. The intestinal bacterial composition was analyzed using PacBio high-throughput full-length 16S rRNA gene sequencing. The most predominant bacteria in the zebrafish intestine were the Fusobacteria phylum and Sphingomonas genus. S. agalactiae infection affected the composition of partially ...

Owing to their typical feature, they have been extensively studied in mammalians, but they have not offered systematic studies among teleosts. In the present study, nine SOCS family genes were identified in the swamp eel genome and analyzed regulation mechanisms of SOCS family members in swamp eels. Th...

In this study, we demonstrated that tlx1 is expressed in the splenic primordia as early as 52 hours post-fertilization (hpf) in zebrafish. A tlx1−/− homozygous mutant line was generated via CRISPR/Cas9 to elucidate the roles of tlx1 in spleen development in zebrafish. In the tlx1−/− background, tlx1−/− cells persisted in the splenic primordia until 52 hpf but were no longer detectable after 53 hpf, suggesting perturbation of early spleen development. The zebrafish also exhibited congenital asplenia caused by the tlx1 mutation. Asplenic zebrafish can survive and breed normally under sta...

This study aims to investigate the effects of replacing different proportions of fishmeal with Antarctic krill (AK) on the growth performance, body composition and nonspecific immunity index of red swamp crayfish Procambarus clarkia. AK was used to replace 0 (control), 25%, 50% and 100% of the fishmeal in the basic diet of crayfish to formulate four test feeds with basically equivalent nitrogen and lipid contents; these feeds were denoted AK0, AK25, AK50 and AK100, respectively. Compared with the control group, crayfish fed diets with AK replacement showed increased body weight gain; feed efficiency; survival rate; body pr...

Thus, high-throughput sequencing is firstly used to analyze the lamprey larvae infected by Aeromonas hydrophila, Vibrosplendidus, and Saprolegnia parasitica. A high quality of 338,628,426 Reads were obtained and 203,829 transcripts were assembled. A total of 158,001 Unigenes were annotated by Blast comp...
