Whole genome analyses of CMY-2-producing Escherichia coli isolates from humans, animals and food in Germany
Apart from the ST-driven spread, plasmid-mediated spread, especially via IncI1 and IncK plasmids, likely plays an important role for emergence and transmission of blaCMY-2 between animals and humans.

The discovery of mcr-1, a plasmidborne resistance gene mediating resistance to colistin, in isolates obtained from humans and animals raises concern about the emergence of pan-resistant Enterobacteriaceae.
Prevalence of mcr-1 in E. coli from Livestock and Food in Germany, 2010–2015
TaqMan based real-time PCR provides a fast and accurate tool for detection of mcr-1 gene in German livestock and food isolates and indicates a worldwide spread of this newly discovered resistance gene in Enterobacteriaceae.

Investigation of the occurrence and the antibiotic resistance patterns of several bacterial species in certain wild animals in Germany, including wild boars, roe deer and wild ducks and geese, indicates that overall, the prevalence of resistant bacteria in Germany is low.
Diversity in prevalence and characteristics of ESBL/pAmpC producing E. coli in food in Germany.
Spread and persistence of VIM-1 Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in three German swine farms in 2011 and 2012.

This first French case of NDM-producing A. pittii in a patient with no history of travel enhances the problem of carbapenemaseproducing ACB species and their management in hospitals.
Diversity of CTX-M-1-producing E. coli from German food samples and genetic diversity of the blaCTX-M-1 region on IncI1 ST3 plasmids.
CTX-M-15-Producing E. coli Isolates from Food Products in Germany Are Mainly Associated with an IncF-Type Plasmid and Belong to Two Predominant Clonal E. coli Lineages
Transmission of CTX-M-15-harboring isolates from food-producing animals to food appears probable, as isolates obtained from livestock and food samples within the same time period exhibit comparable characteristics as compared to isolates detected from human.

The aim of this study was to determine immunogenic proteins and potential virulence factors of P. zopfii, and one genotype-specific antigen could be identified as heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70), a well-known antigen of eukaryotic pathogens with immunological importance when located extracellularly.
