Q fever importance in Europe nowadays

New online article published in VISAVET Outreach Journal

Q fever is one of the most widespread neglected zoonoses worldwide, in spite of the fact that it can be considered as emerging or reemerging in many countries. The disease has been described in almost every country where its presence has been investigated with the sole described exception of New Zealand. However, many aspects of the Q fever and its causative agent, the obligate intracellular bacterium Coxiella burnetii, remain unclear although in the last years it has received a growing attention that could explain its “emergent” nature (due to the use of improved diagnostic techniques and enh… Read more

Reflection paper on the use of third and fourth generation cephalosporins in food producing animals in the European Union: development of resistance and impact on human and animal health

Investigation published in Journal of Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics

Resistance to third and fourth generation cephalosporins is rapidly increasing in bacteria infecting humans. Although many of these problems are linked to human to human transmission and to use of antimicrobials in human medicine, the potential role of community reservoirs such as food producing animals needs to be scrutinized. Resistance to third and fourth generation cephalosporins is emerging in enteric bacteria of food producing animals and also in food of animal origin. The genes encoding resistance to these cephalosporins are transferrable and often linked to other resistance genes. Syst… Read more

Novel genetic environment of qnrB2 associated with TEM-1 and SHV-12 on pB1004, an IncHI2 plasmid, in Salmonella Bredeney BB1047 from Spain

Investigation article published in The Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy

Resistance to fluoroquinolones through plasmid-mediated qnr genes, especially when associated with resistance to cephalosporins by extended-spectrum b-lactamases (ESBLs), is an emerging phenomenon in enterobacteria. This is worrisome in the case of Salmonella, as these are two of the major antimicrobials used in invasive salmonellosis… Read more

Unilateral scrotal pyocele in ram caused by Staphylococcus capitis

Australian Veterinary Journal publish this investigation article

A massive unilateral scrotal pyocele caused by Staphylococcus capitis in a 6-year-old ram is reported. Ultrasound examination of the right hemiscrotum showed an irregular hyperechoic mass in an anechoic fluid. A dense exudate was collected from the scrotum for microbiological analysis. Grossly, there was an extensive greenish purulent exudate and a completely atrophied right testis. Coagulase-negative S. capitis was isolated in pure culture. To the authors` knowledge, this is the first report of genital infection by S. capitis in rams. This microorganism should be included in the differential … Read more
