The aim of this study was to determine the occurrence of Salmonella and Campylobacter as well as the antimicrobial resistance in wild Bonelli’s eagles nestlings in Eastern Spain. In addition...

Fawzi, Ibrahim ElsohabyAbstractAntimicrobial resistance profile of E. coli and Salmonella serovars isolated from diarrheic calves and handlers in Egypt is unknown due to the absence of monitoring. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the virulence, genetic and antimicrobial resistance profiles of E. coli and Salmonella serovars associated with diarrhea in calves and handlers in intensive dairy farms in Egypt. A total of 36 bacterial strains (20 E. coli and 16 S...

In this study, sixty-six Salmonella isolates were obtained from 631 raw meat samples purchased at small retail suppliers in Hubei Province, China. The most prevalent Salmonella serotypes were Thompson (18.2%) and Agona (13.6%). Frequent antimicrobial resistance was observed for the sulfonamides (43.9%), tetracycline (43.9%), and the β-lactams amoxicillin and ampicillin (36.4% for each). Interestingly, a high incidence of resistance to cephazolin was observed in strains of the most common serotype, S. Thompson. Class I integrons were found in 27.3% (18/66) of the isolates and five of these integrons contained different...

One of the main concerns related to Salmonella and other food-borne pathogens is their capacity to acquire antimicrobial resistance and produce biofilms. Due to the increased resistance to common antimicrobials used to treat livestock animals and human infections, the discovery of new antimicrobial substances is one of the main challenges ...

Conclusion: Presently, there are no Indian reports on theblaSHV positive ESBL producing S. Lindenberggastroenteritis. We report on the successful management of the first case of acute gastroenteritis caused byS. Lindenbergthat exhibited dual resistance to fluoroquinolone and third generation cephalosporins. Continued surveillance of the antibiotic resistance pattern of the Non-typhoidalSalmonellaserovars circulating in the geographical region is warranted.

ConclusionThis is the first report of a colistin-resistant Salmonella Enteritidis isolate causing meningitis in an immune-compromised patient in South Africa. The absence of colistin resistance-conferring mutations or plasmid-mediated resistance mechanisms suggest that a novel mechanism is responsible for the colistin resistance in this isolate. The isolate was acquired locally.

Abstract SeqSero, launched in 2015, is a software tool for Salmonella serotype determination from whole genome sequencing (WGS) data. Despite its routine use in public health and food safety laboratories in the United States and other countries, the original SeqSero pipeline is relatively slow (minutes per genome using sequencing reads), is not optimized for draft genome assemblies, and may assign multiple serotypes for a strain. Here we present SeqSero2 (github.com/denglab/SeqSero2; denglab.info/SeqSero2), an algorithmic transformation and functional update of the original SeqSero. Major improvements include: 1) ...
