EFSA publishes results of the first survey on MRSA in pigs in the EU

New post in Weblog Madri+d de Seguridad Alimentaria y Alimentación


The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has published the first EU-wide survey on MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus) in breeding pigs. The results indicate that MRSA, a bacterium resistant to many antibiotics, is commonly detected in holdings with breeding pigs in some EU Member States. The survey provides estimates of its occurrence and makes recommendations for further monitoring and investigation of the causes and implications of MRSA findings in pig holdings in the EU… Read more

Encuesta Epidemiológica Reducida para la obtención y grabación de datos epidemiológicos en brotes de Tuberculosis Bovina Brucelosis Bovina y Brucelosis Ovina y Caprina

Encuesta Epidemiológica Reducida para la obtención y grabación de datos epidemiológicos en brotes de Tuberculosis Bovina, Brucelosis Bovina y Brucelosis Ovina y Caprina

Ministerio de Medio Ambiente y Medio Rural y Marino (MARM) - VISAVET publish this book


La investigación epidemiológica constituye una herramienta esencial para el control de enfermedades como la brucelosis y la tuberculosis, sea cual sea la calificación sanitaria de la zona considerada y la estrategia de control que se practique. Permite, a nivel de rebaño, confirmar o descartar la sospecha de infección, la determinación de su origen, la búsqueda de otros rebaños epizootiológicamente relacionados con el infectado y la evaluación del perfil de transmisión de la enfermedad para así decidir la estrategia más adecuada de control y erradicación… Read more

MRSA. Staphylococcus aureus methicillin resistant

VISAVET Outreach Journal published this online article


Staphylococcus aureus is usually found on the skin and mucosa of domestic animals and humans. This microorganism causes mild infections or even severe ones, in addition to food borne disease through toxins. Antibiotics are the treatment for S. aureus infections. Nevertheless, the bacteria are getting more resistant over time. Staphylococcus aureus resistant to methicillin (MRSA) is a public health concern given that they are resistant to all beta-lactam antibiotics, which are the selected treatments for these infections. … Read more

Analysis of the baseline survey on the prevalence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in holdings with breeding pigs, in the EU, 2008 [1] - Part A: MRSA prevalence estimates

New article published in EFSA Journal


Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) has been recognised as an important cause of hospital-associated infections in humans for several decades. MRSA is resistant to the most commonly used antibiotics. The MRSA lineage ST398 (MRSA ST398) has been recently described as a cause of infection for people occupationally exposed to pigs, by direct or indirect contact. MRSA ST398 can occasionally be introduced into hospitals as a result of community-acquired human infections. To assess the occurrence and the diversity of MRSA in pig primary production, a European Union-wide preliminary su… Read more

Vaccine

First data on Eurasian wild boar response to oral immunization with BCG and challenge with a Mycobacterium bovis field strain

Investigation article published in Vaccine


The Eurasian wild boar (Sus scrofa) is considered a reservoir for bovine tuberculosis (bTB) caused by Mycobacterium bovis and closely related members of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex in south-central Spain. The vaccination of wildlife with BCG offers an alternative to culling and to movement restriction for the control of bTB among wildlife reservoirs. In this study, we hypothesized that oral BCG immunization of wild boar would affect the expression of immunoregulatory genes and confer protection against M. bovis. Three groups were used to describe the infection, pathological findings… Read more

One-step real-time quantitative PCR assays for the detection and field study of Sacbrood honeybee and Acute bee paralysis viruses

Investigation published in Journal of Virological Methods


Two one-step real-time RT-PCR assays, based on SYBR Green (SG) chemistry, were developed or adapted respectively, for the detection, differentiation, and quantitation of two important honeybee viruses: Sacbrood virus (SBV) and Acute bee paralysis virus (ABPV). Both reactions were optimized to yield the highest sensitivity and specificity. The genome equivalent copies (GEC) detection limit per reaction was 389.3 for the ABPV RT-PCR. The GEC detection limit per reaction was 298.9 for the SBV RT-PCR. Viral detection and identification were confirmed by melting curve analysis and sequencing of the… Read more
