Discovery of extended-spectrum β-lactamase producing Escherichia coli among hunted deer, chamois and ibex


Stephan, R; Hächler, H (2012). Discovery of extended-spectrum β-lactamase producing Escherichia coli among hunted deer, chamois and ibex. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 154(11):475-478.

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to assess for the first time the dissemination of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) producing Escherichia coli in the wild animal ecosystem in Switzerland. Fecal samples of 84 red deer, 64 roe deer, 64 chamois, and 27 ibex were investigated. One sample from a roe deer tested positive for ESBL-producing E. coli. The isolate harboured blaCTX-M-1 and tested negative for both blaTEM and blaSHV. Based on these results low occurrence of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae in the wild animal ecosystem in Switzerland must currently be postulated. Further studies are necessary to assess future trends.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
