The aim of this study was to determine the presence of genes encoding enterotoxins (sea-sej) and toxic shock syndrome toxin-1 (tst) of Staphylococcus aureus strains (n = 130) isolated from subclinical bovine mastitis in Turkey by polymerase chain reaction. Sixty-one (46.9%) isolates were found to contain one or more toxin genes. The most frequently found(More)
BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES This study was carried out to evaluate the association between the antibiotic susceptibility patterns and the antibiotic resistance genes in staphylococcal isolates obtained from various clinical samples of patients attending a teaching hospital in Hatay, Turkey. METHODS A total of 298 staphylococci clinical isolates were subjected(More)
The present study was carried out to assess the frequency of methicillin-resistant staphylococci (MRS) among racehorses (n=209) and veterinary personnel (n=13) as well as environmental surfaces (n=14) at an equine hospital in Adana, Turkey. In addition, species distribution, antimicrobial susceptibility, resistance genes, staphylococcal chromosomal cassette(More)
In this study, Staphylococcus aureus strains (n = 110) isolated from seven ewe flocks in Sanliurfa, Turkey were screened for antibiotic resistance and biofilmforming ability as well as for genes associated with antibiotic resistance and biofilm-forming ability. All isolates were found to be susceptible to oxacillin, gentamicin, clindamycin, cefoxitin,(More)
In order to study the prevalence and etiology of subclinical mastitis a bacteriological survey on 16 Awassi dairy sheep flocks in southern Turkey was conducted. A total of 1458 milk samples from 729 Awassi ewes in mid-lactation were tested with the California mastitis test (CMT). Samples from 170 (11.7%) glands and 135 (18.5%) sheep had positive CMT(More)
Proteus syndrome is a rare hamartomatous condition comprising overgrowth of some part of the body in association with various cutaneous, neurovascular, musculoskeletal, and other organ systems. In some cases, there is a family history. The case presented is that of a 6-year-old boy with left hemihypertrophy, widespread capillary hemangiomatosis in the(More)
BACKGROUND The purposes of the present study were (1) to determine the prevalence of mecA and femA genes, (2) to investigate the presence of icaA and icaD genes responsible for slime synthesis, and (3) to search in vitro slime synthesis by staphylococcal strains isolated from the nares of patients with orthopaedic implants using the Congo red agar (CRA)(More)
A total of 112 Staphylococcus aureus isolates obtained from subclinical bovine mastitis cases were examined for antibiotic susceptibility and biofilm-forming ability as well as genes responsible for antibiotic resistance, biofilm-forming ability, and adhesin. Antimicrobial susceptibility of the isolates were determined by disk diffusion method. Biofilm(More)
