BackgroundThe aim of this study was to determine the susceptibility of 88 Lactobacillus isolates derived from chickens to antibiotic substances and to detect drug-resistance genes.ResultsThe minimal inhibitory concentration of 13 antimicrobial substances was determined by the broth microdilution method, and resistance genes were detected by PCR. We recorded a high prevalence of resistance to tiamulin (90% resistant isolates), tetracyclines (74%) and lincomycin (70%), and a moderately high…

Identification and antibiotic susceptibility of lactobacilli isolated from turkeys
TLDR
The high rate of antibiotic resistance observed in this study indicates the need to implement the principles of rational use of antibiotics in poultry and may be useful for committees providing guidance on antibiotic susceptibility of microorganisms in order to revise and supplement current microbiological cut-offs values within the genus Lactobacillus.
Antibiotic Susceptibility and Virulence Genes in Enterococcus Isolates from Wild Mammals Living in Tuscany, Italy.
TLDR
The results obtained indicate that wild mammals might act as reservoirs of resistance and virulence determinants that could be transferred between different ecosystems.
Antimicrobial Susceptibility of Lactic Acid Bacteria Strains of Potential Use as Feed Additives - The Basic Safety and Usefulness Criterion
TLDR
It is highlighted that LAB may be a reservoir of antimicrobial resistance determinants, thus, the first and key step in considering the usefulness of LAB strains as feed additives should be an assessment of their antibiotic resistance.
Characterization of Erythromycin and Tetracycline Resistance in Lactobacillus fermentum Strains
TLDR
Lactobacilli strains isolated from human feces and commercial dairy products were not implicated in the spread of erythromycin and tetracycline resistance, but still these strains pose the threat to the environment and human health because they harbored erydynamiccin andTetracyCline resistance genes in their plasmids and therefore should not be used in foods and probiotics.
Safety and Growth Optimization of Lactic Acid Bacteria Isolated From Feedlot Cattle for Probiotic Formula Design
TLDR
This study examined the safety of 40 lactic acid bacteria isolated from bovine feedlot environment and previously selected as potential probiotics, selecting strains selected as free of antibiotic resistance and virulence determinants, able to reach high cell numbers in non-expensive culture media and being compatible among them.
Assessment of antibiotic resistance in starter and non-starter lactobacilli of food origin
TLDR
This study provides relevant data concerning the use of lactobacilli in safe food production and detailed characterization of resistance to antimicrobials is necessary not only in starter strains but also in non-starter lactic acid bacteria isolated from food products.
The distribution of antibiotic resistance genes in chicken gut microbiota commensals
TLDR
It is shown that antibiotic resistance is quite common in gut commensals, however, a comparison of codon usage showed that the above-mentioned families represent the most common current reservoirs but probably not the original host of the detected resistances.
Presence of OXA-48 Gene in a Clinical Isolate of Lactobacillus rhamnosus.
TLDR
To the authors' knowledge, this is the first report of the presence of the blaOXA-48 in a Lactobacillus spp.

Antibiotic susceptibility of Lactobacillus strains isolated from domestic geese
TLDR
Data derived from this study can be used as a basis for reviewing current microbiological breakpoints for categorisation of susceptible and resistant strains of Lactobacillus genus and help to assess the hazards associated with the occurrence of drug resistance among natural intestinal microflora.
Comparison of antimicrobial resistance patterns in enterococci from intensive and free range chickens in Australia
TLDR
Evidence is provided that, despite strict regulation imposed on antibiotic usage in poultry farming in Australia, antimicrobial resistance is present in intensively raised and free range meat chickens.
Plasmid profiling and curing of Lactobacillus strains isolated from the gastrointestinal tract of chicken.
TLDR
In this study, the susceptibility of 12 Lactobacillus strains, all of which had been isolated from the gastrointestinal tracts of chicken, to three antibiotics used commonly as selective markers in transformation studies of lactic acid bacteria was assessed.
Transfer of antibiotic resistance determinants between lactobacilli isolates from the gastrointestinal tract of chicken.
TLDR
The data suggest that genetic exchange may occur between native bacterial strains within the gastrointestinal tract of chickens, which might maintain a dynamic gene pool conferring antibiotic resistance upon indigenous microbiota components, even in the absence of the pathogens.
Antibiotic susceptibility of members of the Lactobacillus acidophilus group using broth microdilution and molecular identification of their resistance determinants.
Antibiotic Resistances of Starter and Probiotic Strains of Lactic Acid Bacteria
TLDR
Problems encountered with resistance testing are clearly demonstrated, in that the breakpoint values are often inadequately identified, resistance genes may be present but silent, and the genetic basis and associated resistance mechanisms toward some antibiotics are still unknown.
