OBJECTIVES To develop evidence-based recommendations for the use of methotrexate in daily clinical practice in rheumatic disorders. METHODS 751 rheumatologists from 17 countries participated in the 3E (Evidence, Expertise, Exchange) Initiative of 2007-8 consisting of three separate rounds of discussions and Delphi votes. Ten clinical questions concerning(More)
Staphylococcus aureus produces exoproteins that contribute to its ability to colonize the mammary gland such as hemolysins, coagulase, slime, and protein A. This study characterized phenotypically and genotypically these virulence factors in 50 Staph. aureus isolates. These isolates were obtained from milk samples from subclinical mastitis cases identified(More)
Eight isolates of Desulfovibrio spp. have been obtained over 5 years from abdominal or brain abscesses or blood. Seven isolates were part of a mixed flora [corrected]. One strain was isolated in pure culture from the blood of a patient with peritonitis of appendicular origin. According to the 16S rRNA gene sequences, this strain was close to Desulfovibrio(More)

The prevalence of Salmonella spp. was investigated in 109 wild birds poached in the illegal wildlife trade in Rio de Janeiro; most of them are passerines from Thraupidae family and three from Psittacidae. One strain of Salmonella ser. Typhimurium and two strains of Salmonella ser. Panama were isolated from passerine species and all of them showed resistance(More)
The illegal wildlife trade may increase the risk of infectious disease transmission, and it may not only cause disease outbreaks in humans but also threaten livestock, native wild populations, and ecosystems' health. Bird species may act as carriers in the transmission of enteric pathogens. However, epidemiological studies on zoonotic bacteria in wild birds(More)
