First Report of an OXA-23 Carbapenemase-Producing Acinetobacter baumannii Clinical Isolate Related to Tn2006 in Spain
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013-01)
A carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii clinical isolate belonging to European clone II and sequence type 2 was recov-ered from a patient in the Son Espases hospital in Mallorca, Spain. Genetic analysis showed the ...
Biofilm formation at the solid-liquid and air-liquid interfaces by Acinetobacter species
(BioMed Central, 2011)
Abstract Background: The members of the genus Acinetobacter are Gram-negative cocobacilli that are frequently found in the environment but also in the hospital setting where they have been associated with outbreaks of ...
Impact of the MIC of Piperacillin-Tazobactam on the Outcome of Patients with Bacteremia Due to Extended-Spectrum-B-Lactamase- Producing Escherichia coli
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013-07)
We investigated the impact of the piperacillin-tazobactam MIC in the outcome of 39 bloodstream infections due to extended- spectrum-B-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli. All 11 patients with urinary tract infections ...
Global dissemination of a multidrug resistant Escherichia coli clone
(National Academy of Sciences, 2014-04)
Escherichia coli sequence type 131 (ST131) is a globally disseminated, multidrug resistant (MDR) clone responsible for a high proportion of urinary tract and bloodstream infections. The rapid emergence and successful ...
Spanish Multicenter Study of the Epidemiology and Mechanisms of Amoxicillin-Clavulanate Resistance in Escherichia coli
(American Society for Microbiology, 2012-07)
We conducted a prospective multicenter study in Spain to characterize the mechanisms of resistance to amoxicillin-clavu-lanate (AMC) in Escherichia coli. Up to 44 AMC-resistant E. coli isolates (MIC>32/16 g/ml) were collected ...
Risk Factors and Prognosis of Nosocomial Bloodstream Infections Caused by Extended-Spectrum-B-Lactamase-Producing Escherichia coli
(American Society for Microbiology, 2010-05)
Extended-spectrum-B-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli (ESBLEC) is an increasing cause of community and nosocomial infections worldwide. However, there is scarce clinical information about nosocomial bloodstream ...
Clinical features and epidemiology of acinetobacter baumanni colonization and infection in spanish hospitals
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical features and the epidemiology of Acinetobacter baumannii in Spanish hospitals. DESIGN: Prospective multicenter cohort study. SETTING: Twenty-seven general hospitals and one paraplegic ...
Diversity of Escherichia coli Strains Producing Extended-Spectrum B-Lactamases in Spain: Second Nationwide Study
(American Society for Microbiology, 2010-08)
The prevalence of extended-spectrum -lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli (ESBLEC) in Spain increased 8-fold from 2000 to 2006. ESBL type, clonal relationship, antimicrobial susceptibility, and clinical data about ...
Effect of Statin Therapy in the Outcome of Bloodstream Infections Due to Staphylococcus aureus: A Prospective Cohort Study
(Public Library of Science (PLoS), 2013)
Introduction: Statins have pleiotropic effects that could influence the prevention and outcome of some infectious diseases. There is no information about their specific effect on Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia ...
Prospective Multicenter Study of the Impact of Carbapenem Resistance on Mortality in Pseudomonas aeruginosa Bloodstream Infections
(American Society for Microbiology, 2012)
The impact of antimicrobial resistance on clinical outcomes is the subject of ongoing investigations, although uncertainty remains about its contribution to mortality. We investigated the impact of carbapenem resistance ...
