- ... In the current study we screened Escherichia coli from intestine of pigs slaughtered in Mato Grosso, Brazil, for virulence-markers related to human disease. Furthermore, we employed for the first time a phylogenetic assay to explore the association between phylogeny and virulence genotype in E. coli from finished swine. A low prevalence (7.8%) of E. coli harbouring virulence genes was observed. Am ...

- ... Bovine tuberculosis (BTB) is a zoonotic disease caused by Mycobacterium bovis, a member of the Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex (MTC). The quick and specific detection of this species is of extreme importance, since BTB may cause economic impacts, in addition to presenting imminent risks to human health. In the present study a nested real-time PCR test (nested q-PCR) was used in post-mortem eval ...
