Composition of gut and oropharynx bacterial communities in Rattus norvegicus and Suncus murinus in China
TLDR
Both Rattus norvegicus and Suncus murinus carried various pathogenic bacteria, therefore both should be closely monitored in the future, especially for S. murinus.

Human and Other Mammalian Bite Injuries of the Hand: Evaluation and Management
TLDR
Assessment and management of any mammal bite requires recognition, early wound cleansing, evaluation of injured structures, and infection prophylaxis, which typically require débridement, empiric antibiotics, and delayed repair or reconstruction.
Streptococcus minor sp. nov., from faecal samples and tonsils of domestic animals.
TLDR
Nine isolates constituted a homogeneous but unidentified taxon after screening with tRNA intergenic length polymorphism analysis and whole-cell protein fingerprinting and demonstrated that they represent a single, novel streptococcal species.
