Aims: Detection and identification of new antagonistic activities towards Bacillus cereus and relatives.
Prevalence of broad-spectrum cephalosporin-resistant Escherichia coli isolates in food samples in Tunisia, and characterization of integrons and antimicrobial resistance mechanisms implicated.
Characteristics of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)- and pAmpC beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae of water samples in Tunisia.

The urgent need of a larger regulation in the use of veterinary drugs and the implementation of surveillance programmes in Africa is reflected in order to decelerate the advance of antimicrobial resistance in this continent.
Prevalence, antibiotic resistance, virulence traits and genetic lineages of Staphylococcus aureus in healthy sheep in Tunisia.
Diversity of Genetic Lineages Among CTX-M-15 and CTX-M-14 Producing Escherichiacoli Strains in a Tunisian Hospital
CTX-M-15 is an emergent mechanism of resistance in the studied hospital and the world-disseminated 0:25b-ST131-B2 and ST405-D clones have been identified among CTX- M-15-producing isolates.
Staphylococcus aureus in Animals and Food: Methicillin Resistance, Prevalence and Population Structure. A Review in the African Continent
This review shows that some clonal lineages associated with humans and animals and animals are present in this continent in animal isolates, although the mecC gene has not been detected yet.
Detection of multiple-antimicrobial resistance and characterization of the implicated genes in Escherichia coli isolates from foods of animal origin in Tunis.
High diversity of antimicrobial resistance genes are revealed, some of them included in integrons, in E. coli isolates of food origin, obtained in supermarkets and local butcheries in Tunis during 2004 and 2005.

A high diversity of spa types and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) types was detected among the 55 recovered S. aureus strains and one isolate/sample was characterized.
Characterization of two polyvalent phages infecting Enterobacteriaceae
Two novel virulent phages are isolated and characterized using a strain of Shigella flexneri as host bacterium and it is suggested that they may be useful for controlling bacterial populations.
