recovery and screening for antibiotic susceptibility of potential bacterial pathogens from the oral cavity of shark species involved in attacks on humans in recife, brazil.the number of incidents involving sharks and humans at beaches in recife, on the north-eastern brazilian coast, is among the highest worldwide. in addition, wound infections in survivors are common; but the nature and risk of the aetiological agents is unknown. in the present study, 81 potential bacterial pathogens were identified in the oral cavity of sharks involved in attacks in recife, and were subjected to antibiotic susceptibility tests using the standardized disc-diffusion method. the maj ...201020413619
characterization of the bacterial microbiota of biomphalaria glabrata (say, 1818) (mollusca: gastropoda) from brazil.roughly 200 000 000 people in 74 countries infected with schistosomes all share the fact that they came in contact freshwater harbouring infected snails. the aim of the study is to characterize the microbiota of wild and laboratory-reared snails of biomphalaria glabrata from pernambuco, brazil. the microbiota of these molluscs was identified biochemically by the vitek 2 automated microbiological system. antimicrobial susceptibility testing was carried out by the disc diffusion method with ß-lact ...201323488866
