Population-Based Study of Streptococcus suis Infection in Humans in Phayao Province in Northern Thailand
The authors' data suggest a high incidence rate of S. suis infection in the general population in Phayao Province in 2010 and confirm a cluster of three cases in 31 human cases and food safety control should be strengthened especially for raw pork products in northern Thailand.
Genetic characterization of blaNDM-harboring plasmids in carbapenem-resistant Escherichia coli from Myanmar
The results indicate circulation of phylogenetically distinct strains of carbapenem-resistant E. coli with various plasmids harboring blaNDM genes in the hospital.
Corneal abrasions associated with pepper spray exposure.
The contribution of suilysin to the pathogenesis of Streptococcus suis meningitis.
The role of suilysin, a member of cholesterol-dependent cytolysins, in differential pathogenicity between ST1 and ST104 strains is investigated and it is suggested that it contributed to the higher bacterial density and enhanced inflammation in brain and increased mortality of meningitis in humans.
Genotypic Profile of Streptococcus suis Serotype 2 and Clinical Features of Infection in Humans, Thailand
The ST1 and ST104 strains are capable of causing sepsis, but only the ST1 strains commonly cause meningitis, which is unique to Thailand.
Emergence of Streptococcus suis serotype 9 infection in humans.
Dissemination of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae harbouring blaNDM or blaIMI in local market foods of Yangon, Myanmar
It is demonstrated that diverse organisms with various carbapenemase genes are widespread in the market foods in Yangon, highlighting the need for promoting proper food hygiene and effective measures to prevent further dissemination.
Genomic Characterization of Carbapenemase-Producing Klebsiella pneumoniae with Chromosomally Carried blaNDM-1
Further analysis indicated that IS5-mediated intermolecular transposition and Tn3 transposase-mediated homologous recombination resulted in the integration of blaNDM-1 into the chromosome from an IncHI1B-like plasmid.
First human case report of sepsis due to infection with Streptococcus suis serotype 31 in Thailand
A 55-year-old male alcohol misuser with liver cirrhosis was admitted with sepsis to a hospital in the Central Region of Thailand and was alive after treatment with ceftriaxone, the first report of a human case of infection with S. suis serotype 31 in Thailand.
Colloidal gold-based immunochromatographic strip test compromising optimised combinations of anti-S. suis capsular polysaccharide polyclonal antibodies for detection of Streptococcus suis.
