Mycobacterium avium represents a health concern for both humans and pigs. The characterisation of its subspecies is an important step improving the understanding of the epidemiology and the control of this pathogen. Ninety-two human M. avium strains were selected for a retrospective study. Subspecies determination by rpoB sequencing and IS1245/IS901(More)
This paper announces the genome sequences of four strains of Mycobacterium avium subsp. hominissuis, isolated from cases of lymphadenopathy in swine and humans, differing in virulence in a murine intranasal infection model.
Mycobacterium avium subsp. hominissuis (Mah) represents a health concern for humans and to a lesser extent for pigs, but its zoonotic potential remains elusive. Using multispacer sequence typing (MST) we previously identified 49 different genotypes of Mah among Belgian clinical and porcine isolates, with 5 MSTs shared by both hosts. Using experimental(More)
Mycobacterium avium is one of the most frequently isolated nontuberculous mycobacteria, responsible of human and porcine infections. The species M avium consists of four subspecies; M avium subspecies avium (MAA), M avium subspecies silvaticum (MAS), M avium subspecies paratuberculosis (MAP) and M avium subspecies hominissuis (MAH) (Thorel and others 1990,(More)
