Quinolone resistance in campylobacter isolated from man and poultry following the introduction of fluoroquinolones in veterinary medicine.
The increase of quinolone resistance coincides with the increasing use of fluoroquinolones in human and veterinary medicine and suggests that the resistance observed is mainly due to the use of enrofloxacin in the poultry industry. Expand
Behavior of Escherichia coli K antigens K88ab, K88ac, and K88ad in immunoelectrophoresis, double diffusion, and hemagglutination
The immunoelectrophoretic behavior of a K88 antigen (K88ab, K88ac, or K88ad) did not alter after transfer of the corresponding plasmid to E. coli K-12. Expand
Genes coding for enterotoxins and verotoxins in porcine Escherichia coli strains belonging to different O:K:H serotypes: relationship with toxic phenotypes

It is concluded that PCR is a fast, specific, and practical method for the identification of enterotoxin and VT genes in clinical and epidemiological studies. Expand
Serotypes of Escherichia coli isolated from septicaemic chickens in Galicia (northwest Spain).
The high prevalence of O18, O81, O115, O116 and O132 isolates was not expected and may indicate the emergence of five new serogroups associated with avian colibacillosis not yet reported. Expand
O serogroups, biotypes, and eae genes in Escherichia coli strains isolated from diarrheic and healthy rabbits

  • 1 December 1996
It is concluded that enteropathogenic E. coli strains that possess the eae gene are a common cause of diarrhea in Spanish rabbit farms and that the rhamnose-negative highly pathogenic strains of serotype O103:K-:H2 and biotype B14 are especially predominant. Expand
Detection of the K99 antigen by means of agglutination and immunoelectrophoresis in Escherichia coli isolates from calves and its correlation with entertoxigenicity
The common antigen of calf enterotoxigenic strains of Escherichia coli, recently established as the K99 antigen, was studied by means of the slide agglutination test and immunoelectrophoresis and is probably a useful diagnostic tool for the identification of calf entersotixigenic E. coli strains.

Typing of Aeromonas strains from patients with diarrhoea and from drinking water.
There was little overall similarity between Aeromonas strains from human (diarrhoeal) faeces and from drinking water, differences being most pronounced for aeromonas caviae and least for A. sobria. Expand
Study on the epidemiology and control of Campylobacter jejuni in poultry broiler flocks
Application of measures to control horizontal transmission of C. jejuni on farm B was successful and infection of the flocks from a common source via horizontal pathways is suspected, while a vertical route of infection is not likely to exist. Expand
Construction and analysis of Bordetella pertussis mutants defective in the production of fimbriae.
The results suggest that the filamentous haemagglutinin plays a more crucial role than fimbriae in the colonization of the upper respiratory tract of the mouse. Expand
Prevalence and characteristics of human and bovine verotoxigenic Escherichia coli strains isolated in Galicia (north-western Spain)
Results obtained in this study indicate that cattle may be an important source of verotoxigenic Escherichia coli involved in human disease and severe clinical syndromes caused by VTEC are uncommon in Spain, in comparison with North America and the UK. Expand
