A note on the range of Escherichia coli O-serotypes causing clinical bovine mastitis and their antibiotic resistance spectra.
Sixty-seven Escherichia coli O-serotypes were found among 279 isolates from individual cows with clinical mastitis suggesting that coliform mastitis is a non-specific infection. Sensitivity tests onExpand
The effects of feeding tetracycline, nitrovin and quindoxin on the drug-resistance of coli-aerogenes bacteria from calves and pigs.
Analysis of the resistance patterns supported the contention that the dominant coli-aerogenes bacteria in the gut flora following use of certain growth-promoters, resulted from suppression of fully sensitive organisms. Expand
The colonization of the human gut by antibiotic resistant Escherichia coli from chickens.
Strains from both sources, identified on the basis of serotype and characterization of plasmids carried, were found to be identical. Expand
Quantitative PCR estimates Angiostrongylus cantonensis (rat lungworm) infection levels in semi-slugs (Parmarion martensi).
A quantitative PCR (qPCR) assay is reported that provides a reliable, relative measure of parasite load in intermediate hosts and provides a new tool for quantification of larvae from intermediate hosts, and potentially from other sources as well. Expand
Water transmission potential of Angiostrongylus cantonensis: Larval viability and effectiveness of rainwater catchment sediment filters
It is demonstrated that live, infective-stage A. cantonensis larvae emerge from drowned snails and slugs, survive for extended periods of time in water, and may be able to enter a catchment user's household water supply. Expand

A 23-year-old man living on the island of Hawa'i developed a life threatening case of eosinophilic meningitis caused by infection with Angiostrongylus cantonensis (rat lungworm disease: RLWD). He wasExpand
Detection of Angiostrongylus cantonensis in the Blood and Peripheral Tissues of Wild Hawaiian Rats (Rattus rattus) by a Quantitative PCR (qPCR) Assay
It is demonstrated that parasite DNA can be detected in peripheral blood at various time points throughout RLW infection in rats. Expand

The spread of Angiostrongylus cantonensis as well as the potential introduction of the semislug P. martensi should be a concern to the mainland United States. Expand
