Abstract

Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar (S.) Derby and S. Typhimurium were commonly isolated from slaughter pigs and pork. Thus, the monitoring of the resistance profile exhibited by strains of both serovars should be regularly conducted. This study aimed to assess the antimicrobial resistance pattern of strains isolated form pig carcasses and to investigate the genetic relatedness with isolates from intestinal content and lairage environment. Thirty-four S. Derby and seventeen S. Typhimurium strains isolated from carcasses (n=30), intestinal contents (n=16), and lairage environment (n=3) were tested. The antimicrobial resistance was determined by the agar disk diffusion test according to the document M31-A2 of the CLSI using twelve antimicrobials.

Antimicrobial resistance patterns of Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar Derby and Typhimurium isolated from pigs slaughtered in southern Brazil

Maastricht, Netherlands

Salmonella enterica subsp. enterica serovar (S.) Derby and S. Typhimurium were commonly isolated from slaughter pigs and pork. Thus, the monitoring of the resistance profile exhibited by strains of both serovars should be regularly conducted. This study aimed to assess the antimicrobial resistance pattern of strains isolated form pig carcasses and to investigate the genetic relatedness with isolates from intestinal content and lairage environment. Thirty-four S. Derby and seventeen S. Typhimurium strains isolated from carcasses (n=30), intestinal contents (n=16), and lairage environment (n=3) were tested. The antimicrobial resistance was determined by the agar disk diffusion test according to the document M31-A2 of the CLSI using twelve antimicrobials.
