Abstract

This research communication describes the first isolation of a methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from cow's mastitic milk in Argentina. Bovine mastitis causes important economic losses in the dairy industry and the most commonly isolated bacteria from bovine mastitis are ...

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...

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

The emergence of resistance to antibiotics has been favored by abuse in the application of antimicrobials in human and animal medicine. Essential oils are a great resource to deal with this crisis. Melaleuca armillaris belongs to the family of Myrtaceae, rich in species with essential oils. Plant...

Abstract

The aims of this study were to determine the antimicrobial susceptibility profile and genetic diversity of Staphylococcus spp. isolated from dairy cows in Minas Gerais, Brazil, and to assess the relationship among the isolates' susceptibility profiles and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE)...

Abstract

In this study we investigated the circulation of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in 2 dairy cattle farms (farm A and B), previously identified as MRSA-positive in bulk tank milk samples, and epidemiologically related to swine farms. Collected specimens included quarter milk...

Abstract

Unhygienic practices, handling and transportation; pooling of milk from unscreened mastitic cows and indiscriminate prophylactic, therapeutic and growth promotion use of antibiotics in Nigerian cattle production could result in dissemination of resistant bacteria including Staphylococcus aureus and ...

Abstract

Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) lineages have become major responsible of healthcare- and community-associated infections in human population. Bovine MRSA are sporadically detected in the dairy herd, but its presence enhances the risk of zoonosis. Some lineages are able to lose the specific...

Abstract

The molecular characteristics and the distribution of virulence genes from epidemic strains of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) causing mastitis and endometritis in dairy cattle in Xinjiang, China in 2016 were studied. Staphylococcus aureus was isolated from a total 221 milk...
