We aimed to determine the prevalence of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli in fecal samples of healthy pigs, and to evaluate their clonality and associated resistance. Forty-nine percent of pigs sampled (n=35/71) in a slaughterhouse in Portugal revealed ESBL-producing E. coli isolates. Most isolates produced CTX-M-1 enzyme(More)
A simple, fast and miniaturized ultrasonic probe assisted protocol for acid extraction of trace and major elements from street dust samples, prior to final determination by ICP-MS, has been optimized and validated by standard reference materials and applied during an urban air quality monitoring campaign. 15 mg samples were treated for 3 min with 1 mL(More)
BACKGROUND There has been concern about the increase of antimicrobial resistant bacteria and protection of animal and public health, along with food safety. In the present study, we evaluate the incidence of antimicrobial resistance among 192 strains of Escherichia coli isolated from faecal samples of healthy food-producing animals at slaughter in Portugal.(More)
Arsenite (As(III)) uptake and elimination kinetics were studied in a freshwater bivalve, Corbicula fluminea, exposed to several nominal concentrations of As(III) (0, 100, 300, 500, and 1000 microg L(-1)) in a static 28-day assay, followed by a depuration stage of 14 days. At the end of each sampling time (days 0, 7, 28, and 42) whole-body portions were(More)
