Abstract

Nowadays, mastitis is one of the biggest problems in breeding dairy cattle. Treatment of this disease with conventional antibiotics is ineffective because many pathogens are resistant. Researchers have therefore been forced to look for new solutions, and metal nanoparticles (NPs) have been found to ...

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to describe a novel subpopulation of Staphylococcus haemolyticus isolated from intramammary gland infections (IMI) in cattle. In total, eight isolates originating from milk samples from two unrelated dairy farms were examined phenotypically (using the ID 32 STAPH system)...

Abstract

Superantigens (SAgs) represent a diverse family of bacterial toxins that induce Vβ-specific T cell proliferation associated with an array of important diseases in humans and animals, including mastitis of dairy cows. However, an understanding of the diversity and distribution of SAg genes among...

Abstract

Background: Methicillin resistance in Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is classically conferred by the acquisition of the mecA gene encoding an additional penicillin binding protein with low affinity for beta-lactams. A mecA variant, named mecC, was described in 2011. MRSA isolates harboring mecC of...

Abstract

In dairy cattle, mastitis is the most frequent bacterial disease, and the routine use of antibiotics for treatment and prevention can drive antimicrobial resistance (AMR). The aim of our study was to estimate the levels of AMR of the 3 main bacteria isolated from dairy cattle with mastitis in...

Abstract

In the present study we describe an outbreak where PVL positive MRSA belonging to spa-type t002 and multi-locus sequence type ST2659 persisted in a Swedish dairy herd for at least two years, despite efforts to hinder transmission between animals and between the farmer and his animals. This is the...
