A methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus CC398 was recovered from a wild female boar (Sus scrofa) in the north of Portugal, in 2013 (Sousa et al. 2017). Whole genome sequencing (WGS) revealed this strain carries a new variant of a mecA-containing staphylococcal chromosomal gene cassette (SCCmec) type IV with an uncommon J3 region. WGS studies can facilitate surveillance and provide more detailed characterization of bacterial clones circulating in the wild, reinforcing the need for a one health perspective to better understand and control antimicrobial resistance.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) CC398 is a livestock-associated (LA) lineage, mainly detected in swine. Its dissemination via the food-chain could be a food-safety issue. This work ...
The emergence of livestock-associated (LA)-methicillin-resistant (MRSA) in livestock animal has become a significant zoonotic concern. In the present study, we investigated nationwide prevalence of L...
Methicillin-resistant (MRSA) is an important clinical problem. In 2005, a livestock-associated MRSA clone was described, named CC398, being mostly associated with pigs, and causing colonization and i...
Livestock-associated (LA) methicillin-resistant Staphyloccoccus aureus (MRSA) of lineage CC398 is an emerging clone causing human infections, although they are most commonly found in pigs. The aim of ...
South Korea is the only Asian country where African swine fever (ASF) is spreading in wild boar (Sus scrofa) populations. This rapid communication describes the situation of ASF in South Korea since i...
The overall goal of this project is to elucidate the epidemiology of MRSA transmission in the community and test an intervention to prevent MRSA transmission in this setting.
The purpose of this study is to confirm the safety of Apatinib at a dose level up to 750 mg/d with standard therapy of docetaxel (60 mg/m²) in advanced lung adenocarcinoma patients harbor...
From the 1980s to the late 1990s, highly toxic methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains (called community-associated [CA] MRSA) appeared in the community. Although the pr...
Hospital acquired and community acquired methicillin resistant staph aureus (MRSA) has become an important health issue for in recent years. Up to two thirds of patients that are hospital...
This study will prospectively evaluate the prevalence and incidence (over a two year period) of MRSA colonization and infection among HIV-infected military beneficiaries to determine predi...
Diseases of domestic swine and of the wild boar of the genus Sus.
Animals considered to be wild or feral or not adapted for domestic use. It does not include wild animals in zoos for which ANIMALS, ZOO is available.
An order of insects comprising the chewing lice or biting lice, many of which are parasitic on wild birds and domestic fowl and on wild and domestic mammals. Suborders include Amblycera and Ischnocera.
The metaphysical doctrine that the functions and processes of life are due to a vital principle distinct from physicochemical forces and that the laws of physics and chemistry alone cannot explain life functions and processes. Vitalism is opposed to mechanistic materialism. The belief was that matter was divided into two classes based on behavior with respect to heat: organic and inorganic. Inorganic material could be melted but could always be recovered by removing the heat source. Organic compounds changed form upon heating and could not be recovered by removing the heat source. The proposed explanation for the difference between organic and inorganic compounds was the Vitalism Theory, which stated that inorganic materials did not contain the "vital force" of life.
The condition of harboring an infective organism without manifesting symptoms of infection. The organism must be readily transmissible to another susceptible host.

Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a ...
