Livestock-Associated Methicillin Resistant and Methicillin Susceptible Staphylococcus aureus Sequence Type (CC)1 in European Farmed Animals: High Genetic Relatedness of Isolates from Italian Cattle Herds and Humans

Investigación publicada en PLoS ONE

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) Sequence Type (ST)1, Clonal Complex(CC)1, SCCmec V is one of the major Livestock-Associated (LA-) lineages in pig farming industry in Italy and is associated with pigs in other European countries. Recently, it has been increasingly detected in Italian dairy cattle herds. The aim of this study was to analyse the differences between ST1 MRSA and methicillin-susceptible S. aureus (MSSA) from cattle and pig herds in Italy and Europe and human isolates. Sixty-tree animal isolates from different holdings and 20 human isolates were characterized by p… Leer más

Assessment of MALDI-TOF MS as alternative tool for Streptococcus suis identification

Artículo de investigación publicado en Frontiers in Public Health

The accuracy of matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) for identifying Streptococcus suis isolates obtained from pigs, wild animals, and humans was evaluated using a PCR-based identification assay as the gold standard. In addition, MALDI-TOF MS was compared with the commercial multi-tests Rapid ID 32 STREP system. From the 129 S. suis isolates included in the study and identified by the molecular method, only 31 isolates (24.03%) had score values ≥2.300 and 79 isolates (61.24%) gave score values between 2.299 and 2.000. After updating … Leer más

A novel antigen capture ELISA for the specific detection of IgG antibodies to elephant endotheliotropic herpes virus

BMC Veterinary Research publica este artículo de investigación

Elephants are classified as critically endangered animals by the International Union for Conservation of Species (IUCN). Elephant endotheliotropic herpesvirus (EEHV) poses a large threat to breeding programs of captive Asian elephants by causing fatal haemorrhagic disease. EEHV infection is detected by PCR in samples from both clinically ill and asymptomatic elephants with an active infection, whereas latent carriers can be distinguished exclusively via serological assays. To date, identification of latent carriers has been challenging, since there are no serological assays capable of detectin… Leer más

Detection of virulence-associated genes characteristic of intestinal Escherichia coli pathotypes, including the Enterohemorrhagic / Enteroaggregative O104:H4 in bovines from Germany and Spain

Investigación publicada en Microbiology and Immunology

Cattle are reservoirs of Enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli but their role in the epidemiology of other pathogenic E. coli remains undefined. We describe a new set of quantitative real-time PCR assays for the direct detection and quantification of nine virulence associated genes (VAGs) characteristic of the most important human E. coli pathotypes and four serotype-related genes (wzxO104 , fliCH4 , rbfO157 , fliCH7 ) that can be used as a surveillance tool for detection of pathogenic strains. A total of 970 cattle fecal samples were collected in slaughterhouses from Germany and Spain and 134 po… Leer más
