TL;DR: The generically misclassified organism Flavobacterium breve is included in the revived genus Empedobacter as Em Pedobacter brevis, whereas the genericallyMisclassified organism Weeksella zoohelcum is includedIn the new genus Bergeyella as Bergeyellas zoohel Cum.
Abstract: Our present knowledge concerning the genotypic, chemotaxonomic, and phenotypic characteristics of members of the genus Flavobacterium and some related genera, including the genus Weeksella, was used to revise the classification of these organisms. The generically misclassified organisms Flavobacterium balustinum, Flavobacterium gleum, Flavobacterium indologenes, Flavobacterium indoltheticum, Flavobacterium meningosepticum, and Flavobacterium scophthalmum are included in a new genus, Chryseobacterium, with Chryseobacterium gleum as the type species. The generically misclassified organism Flavobacterium breve is included in the revived genus Empedobacter as Empedobacter brevis, whereas the generically misclassified organism Weeksella zoohelcum is included in the new genus Bergeyella as Bergeyella zoohelcum.

TL;DR: A 35 year old man who was bitten by a Siberian tiger and who developed infectious tenosynovitis secondary to P multocida, Bergeyella (Weeksella) zoohelcum, and Gram negative bacteria most like CDC group EF-4b and comamonas species is described.
Abstract: Mammalian bites present a considerable clinical problem because they are often associated with bacterial infections. Pasteurella multocida is a microorganism that commonly infects both canine and small feline bites. Zoonotic infections developing after large feline bites have been recognised, although their reports are limited. We describe a 35 year old man who was bitten by a Siberian tiger and who developed infectious tenosynovitis secondary to P multocida, Bergeyella (Weeksella) zoohelcum, and Gram negative bacteria most like CDC group EF-4b and comamonas species. The latter three bacteria have not been isolated previously from large feline bite wounds.

TL;DR: This is the first study to demonstrate the temporal dynamics of the canine oral microbiota; it showed that periodontitis results from a microbial succession predominantly characterised by a reduction of previously abundant, health associated taxa.
Abstract: Periodontal disease is the most widespread oral disease in dogs Whilst the involvement of bacteria in the aetiology of periodontitis is well established the role of individual species and their complex interactions with the host is not well understood The objective of this research was therefore to perform a longitudinal study in dogs to identify the changes that occur in subgingival bacterial communities during the transition from mild gingivitis to the early stages of periodontitis (<25% attachment loss) Subgingival plaque samples were collected from individual teeth of 52 miniature schnauzer dogs every six weeks for up to 60 weeks The microbial composition of plaque samples was determined using 454-pyrosequencing of the 16S rDNA A group of aerobic Gram negative species, including Bergeyella zoohelcum COT-186, Moraxella sp COT-017, Pasteurellaceae sp COT-080, and Neisseria shayeganii COT-090 decreased in proportion as teeth progressed to mild periodontitis In contrast, there was less evidence that increases in the proportion of individual species were associated with the onset of periodontitis, although a number of species (particularly members of the Firmicutes) became more abundant as gingivitis severity increased There were small increases in Shannon diversity, suggesting that plaque community membership remains relatively stable but that bacterial proportions change during progression into periodontitis This is the first study to demonstrate the temporal dynamics of the canine oral microbiota; it showed that periodontitis results from a microbial succession predominantly characterised by a reduction of previously abundant, health associated taxa

TL;DR: Microbiological cultures from 229 patients seeking medical advice in Stockholm after the tsunami catastrophe of December 2004 were analysed at the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden and Gram-negative bacilli were the most common findings from wound cultures.
Abstract: Microbiological cultures from 229 patients seeking medical advice in Stockholm after the tsunami catastrophe of December 2004 were analysed at the Clinical Microbiology Laboratory, Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden. Gram-negative bacilli were the most common findings from wound cultures. Common human pathogens such as Escherichia coli, Proteus species, Klebsiella spp., and Pseudomonas aeruginosa were isolated. More rare species of Gram-negative bacilli, e.g. Myroides odoratus, Sphingomonas paucimobilis and Bergeyella zoohelcum were also isolated. Resistance towards ordinary antibiotics was more extensive compared to our Swedish reference material for Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis and Acinetobacter spp., but not for Pseudomonas aeruginosa, probably reflecting that the resistant isolates were nosocomially acquired in Asia.
