Aim/purpose To examine the contribution of a Resistance-Nodulation-Division (RND) efflux pump to resistance to various antimicrobial agents tested in B. thailandensis and adapt a flow cytometry-assisted susceptibility test (FAST) for the species. Materials and methods The mutagenesis experiment comprised several stages. Firstly, flanking regions of the chosen RND efflux pump, BpeAB-OprB, were amplified using PCR,
Aim: Antimicrobial resistance presents a growing concern worldwide. Medical students are potential antimicrobial prescribers and stewards following graduation as doctors. The aim of this study was to assess the knowledge regarding antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and antibiotic use among pre-final year and final year medical school students of Ebonyi State University, Nigeria. Materials and Methods: A

Context: In the early 2000s, the resistance to critically important antimicrobials (CIAs) for some human diseases emerged in bacteria isolated from food-producing animals, including cattle. Calves, which are particularly susceptible to digestive diseases, are considered as a reservoir of Enterobacteriacae carrying antimicrobial resistance (AMR) determinants. In March 2016, the French animal health authorities have enacted
