Abstract null null Ethnopharmacological relevance null Canarium album Raeusch. belongs to the Burseraceae family. Its ripe fruits, known as Qing Guo (QG) in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), are used to treat sore throat, cough, and fish or crab poisoning. QG was reported to have antibacterial activity, and it exerted excellent anti-Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) activity in our screening of abundant TCM. However, few studies have reported its anti-H. pylori activity and mechanism. null null ...
Abstract null null The main objective of this study was to isolate and identify Staphylococcus aureus from retail raw red meat samples and evaluate their enterotoxin gene and antibiotic resistance profiles. A total of 452 retail raw meat samples, including beef (n = 200), sheep (n = 125), and lamb (n = 127) randomly purchased from various supermarkets and butchers in Ankara between July 2019 and November 2020, were tested for the prevalence of S. aureus. The S. aureus strain was identified using...

Abstract null null The prevalence and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) profile were investigated in Campylobacter jejuni and Campylobacter coli in chicken and pork in Fukuoka, Japan in 2019. Their AMR profiles were compared with those of C. jejuni and C. coli strains isolated in 2013. A total of 53 chicken and 14 pork samples were collected from different supermarkets in Fukuoka in 2019. Campylobacter spp. were isolated by conventional method and characterized by PCR and MALDI-TOF MS. Among 53 chi...

Abstract null null The opportunistic pathogen V. parahaemolyticus is a major causative agent for seafood-borne illness worldwide. It also causes severe vibriosis in aquaculture animals, affecting seafood production with huge economic loss. These issues are getting worse due to the current global warming in oceans, spread of antibiotic resistance, and changes in consumer preference toward ready-to-eat (RTE) food items including seafood. To answer the urgent need for sustainable biocontrol agents ...

Staphylococcus aureus is an important pathogen of humans and animals. The aim of this study was to characterize 71 of S. aureus isolates from raw cow milk in southern Xinjiang of China, including molecular typing, distribution of virulence genes, and antimicrobial susceptibility. The isolates belonged to 18 sequence types (STs) (including 11 novel STs) and 6 spa types which were divided into five different clonal complexes (CCs), including CC188, CC352, CC22, CC398, and CC5406. The majority of t...

Human skin banks around the world face a serious problem with the high number of allogeneic skins that are discarded and cannot be used for grafting due to persistent bacterial contamination even after antibiotic treatment. The biofilm formation capacity of these microorganisms may contribute to the antibiotic tolerance; however, this is not yet widely discussed in the literature. Thisstudy analyzed bacterial strains isolated from allogeneic human skin samples,which were obtained from a hospital...

Recently, in India, the marine finfish culture is expanding rapidly without adequate knowledge and research information on the coastal and marine finfish disease epidemics. Therefore, for the benefit of farmers, this study was designed to find the prevalence of Vibriosis outbreaks in marine finfish farms. In this study, 167 moribund fishes that show outward symptoms of lethargy, popeye, pale gills, skin erosions, abdominal edema, and hemorrhagic spots on different parts of the body were collecte...

Abstract null null Vibrio parahaemolyticus is a gram-negative halophilic bacterium responsible for gastrointestinal infection in human and vibriosis in aquatic animals. The thermostable direct hemolysin (tdh), tdh-related hemolysin (trh) and thermolabile hemolysin (tlh) positive strains of V. parahaemolyticus were identified from brackishwater aquaculture farms of West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh, India. Moreover, the presence of other virulent genes like vcrD1, vopD, vp1680 under type three secre...
The minocycline susceptibility of 3,856 isolates including Burkholderia, Achromobacter, Alcaligenes, Aeromonas, and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia from the SENTRY surveillance (2014 to 2019) were analyzed. The susceptibilities of these species (%S) were Achromobacter spp. (n = 411; 92.6%), Burkholderia cepacia species complex (n = 199; 85.9%), Aeromonas spp. (n = 127; 99.2%), Chryseobacterium spp. (n = 59; 94.9%), Alcaligenes faecalis (n = 42; 88.1%), and S. maltophilia (n = 2,287; 99.5%). These d...

Pathogen emergence is a complex phenomenon that, despite its public health relevance, remains poorly understood. Vibrio vulnificus, an emergent human pathogen, can cause a deadly septicaemia with over 50% mortality rate. To date, the ecological drivers that lead to the emergence of clinical strains and the unique genetic traits that allow these clones to colonize the human host remain mostly unknown. We recently surveyed a large estuary in eastern Florida, where outbreaks of the disease frequent...
