Abstract

A novel colistin resistance gene was identified in a strain of , monophasic variant of serovar Typhimurium (4,5,12:i:- ), isolated from a pig at slaughter in Italy in 2013, and in strains collected during routine diagnostic of post-weaning diarrhoea in pigs from Spain and Belgium in 2015 and 2016. Immediate implementation of -screening including this novel gene variant is required for and from humans and food-producing animals in Europe.
