OBJECTIVES Faecal Escherichia coli strains were isolated from great cormorants (Phalacrocorax carbo) and mallards (Anas platyrhynchos), which are commonly occurring waterbirds in Europe, and studied for resistance to cephalosporins and fluoroquinolones. METHODS Cloacal swabs or faeces from great cormorants and mallards in Central Europe were cultivated to(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to investigate the silver gull as an indicator of environmental contamination by salmonellae and carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) in south-east Australia. METHODS A total of 504 cloacal samples were collected from gull chicks at three nesting colonies in New South Wales, Australia [White Bay (n =(More)
Antimicrobial resistance genes can be found in all ecosystems, including those where antibiotic selective pressure has never been exerted. We investigated resistance genes in a collection of faecal samples of wildlife (non-human primates, mice), people and domestic animals (dogs, cats) in Côte d'Ivoire; in the chimpanzee research area of Taï National Park(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to determine the occurrence of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli at an equine clinic and a horseback riding centre, and to discuss the impact of antimicrobial treatment on resistance selection. METHODS Faeces from horses, environmental smears and flies were sampled at both the clinic and(More)
OBJECTIVES We report the case of a kidney-transplant patient, suffering an intra-abdominal abscess at the surgical site caused by a carbapenem-resistant ST258 Klebsiella pneumoniae clone, producing the KPC-3 carbapenemase. Under tigecycline treatment, the patient developed a sepsis caused by a carbapenem-susceptible ST258 K. pneumoniae strain. Complete DNA(More)
Escherichia coli is a common commensal bacterial species of humans and animals that may become a troublesome pathogen causing serious diseases. The aim of this study was to characterize the quinolone resistance phenotypes and genotypes in E. coli isolates of different origin from one area of the Czech Republic. E. coli isolates were obtained from(More)
