Rapid Detection of β-Lactamase-Hydrolyzing Extended-Spectrum Cephalosporins in Enterobacteriaceae by Use of the New Chromogenic βLacta Test

Investigation article published in Journal of Clinical Microbiology

The chromogenic βLacta test developed for the rapid detection of β-lactamase-hydrolyzing extended-spectrum cephalosporins in Enterobacteriaceae revealed good performance with extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) producers (97.5% true-positive results). However, false-negative results occurred with chromosomal AmpC hyperproducers and plasmid AmpC producers, whereas uninterpretable results were mostly due to VIM-1 carbapenemase producers and possibly low levels of expressed ESBLs… Read more

Survey of quantitative antimicrobial consumption per production stage in farrow-to-finish pig farms in Spain

Veterinary Record Open publish this investigation article

Objectives To characterise antimicrobial use (AMU) per production stage in terms of drugs, routes of application, indications, duration and exposed animals in farrow-to-finish pig farms in Spain. Design Survey using a questionnaire on AMU during the six months prior to the interview, administered in face-to-face interviews completed from April to October 2010. Participants 108 potentially eligible farms covering all the country were selected using a multistage sampling methodology; of these, 33 were excluded because they did not fulfil the participation criteria and 49 were surveyed. Results T… Read more

Long-term assessment of wild boar harvesting and cattle removal for bovine tuberculosis control in free ranging populations

Investigation published in PLoS ONE

Wild boar is a recognized reservoir of bovine tuberculosis (TB) in the Mediterranean ecosystems, but information is scarce outside of hotspots in southern Spain. We describe the first high-prevalence focus of TB in a non-managed wild boar population in northern Spain and the result of eight years of TB management. Measures implemented for disease control included the control of the local wild boar population through culling and stamping out of a sympatric infected cattle herd. Post-mortem inspection for detection of tuberculosis-like lesions as well as cultures from selected head and cervical … Read more

Microbial Drug Resistance (Larchmont, N.Y.)

High clonal diversity in a non-outbreak situation of clinical ESBL-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates in the first national surveillance program in Cuba

Investigation article published in Microbial Drug Resistance (Larchmont, N.Y.)

This work summarized the results obtained in an institutional Klebsiella pneumoniae surveillance program recently implemented in Cuba. Eighteen hospitals from five regions provided a total of 228 K. pneumoniae isolates (164 from admitted patients, four from hospital environmental sources, and 60 isolates from community patients). The genetic relationship was assessed by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis and multilocus sequence typing. Antimicrobial susceptibility was determined by the agar dilution method, and bla(ESBL) genes were sequenced. Fifty four K. pneumoniae isolates were extended-spect… Read more

Noah Syndrome: harmful love to animals

New outreach post in SEVEMUR Blog

La Ordenanza Reguladora de la Tenencia y Protección de los Animales del Ayuntamiento de Madrid dispone, en su capítulo I, articulo 4, que la tenencia de animales de compañía en los domicilios particulares está autorizada siempre que las condiciones de su alojamiento lo permitan, y quede garantizada la ausencia de riesgos higiénico-sanitarios para su entorno. El propietario del animal/es deberá proporcionarle un alojamiento y condiciones adecuadas, necesarias para su normal desarrollo. En el supuesto de perros y gatos, el número total de animales no excederá de cinco sin la correspondiente auto… Read more

Evaluation of single and comparative intradermal tuberculin tests for tuberculosis eradication in caprine flocks in Castilla y León (Spain)

Investigation published in Research in Veterinary Science

Goats can act as reservoirs for tuberculosis (TB) infection. The main etiological agents of TB in goats are Mycobacterium caprae and M. bovis and they infect also a wide range of domestic and wild animals and humans. Control programmes based mainly on the application of single and comparative intradermal tuberculin (SIT and SCIT respectively) tests are being implemented in certain regions of Spain with a high density of caprine flocks as Castilla y León, including goats with epidemiological relationship with cattle. The aim of this study was to evaluate the performance of the intradermal tests… Read more

Flavobacterium tructae sp. nov. and Flavobacterium piscis sp. nov. isolated from farmed rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss)

Investigation article published in International Journal of Systematic and Evolutionary Microbiology

Four Gram-staining-negative, catalase- and oxidase-positive, pale-orange pigmented bacterial strains (435-08T, 47B-3-09, 412R-09T and 60B-3-09) were isolated from diseased rainbow trout. Analysis of their 16S rRNA gene sequences showed their adscription to the genus Flavobacterium. Strains formed two phylogenetic groups represented by strains 435-08T and 47B-3-09 (group A), and strains 412R-09T and 60B-3-09 (group B) displaying 16S rRNA sequence similarities greater than 99.8-99.9% within their respective groups. Strain 435-08T exhibited the highest levels of similarity with Flavobacterium aqu… Read more
