Enterococci are part of the indigenous microbiota of human gastrointestinal tract and food of animal origin. Enterococci inhabiting non-human reservoirs play a critical role in the acquisition and dissemination of antimicrobial resistance determinants. The aim of this work was to investigate the antimicrobial resistance in Enterococcus faecalis and(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of asymptomatic carriers of group A β-hemolytic streptococci (GAS) in children living in a rural community and to investigate the association between episodes of acute pharyngitis and carrier status. METHODS Throat swabs were collected from September to November 2013 among children 5-13(More)
Développée dans la continuité des dispositifs déjà mis en place, l’approche globale et intégrée de la prise en charge en cancérologie portée par le nouveau Plan cancer 2014–2019 doit permettre de répondre à des enjeux de qualité en intégrant pleinement les personnes malades en tant qu’acteurs de cette prise en charge. Elle doit aussi prendre en compte les(More)
Enterococci often acquire antimicrobial resistance through horizontal gene transfer. Relatedness between enterococci with high level resistance to gentamicin and vancomycin isolated from humans, food and hospital environment in Tandil County (Argentina) was investigated. PCR amplification for species determination was carried out. Resistance to seven(More)
AIMS   To investigate the in vivo gene transfer of high-level gentamicin resistance (HLRG) from Enterococcus faecalis isolated from the food of animal origin to a human isolate, using a mouse model of intestinally colonized human microbiota. METHODS AND RESULTS   In vitro study: The presence of plasmids involved in HLRG coding was investigated. After the(More)
