Optimizing design of research to evaluate antibiotic stewardship interventions: consensus recommendations of a multinational working group
Background Antimicrobial stewardship interventions and programmes aim to ensure effective treatment while minimizing antimicrobial-associated harms including resistance. Practice in this vital area is undermined by the ...
Efficacy of β-lactam/β-lactamase inhibitors to treat extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacterales bacteremia secondary to urinary tract infection in kidney transplant recipients
Background Whether active therapy with β-lactam/β-lactamase inhibitors (BLBLI) is as affective as carbapenems for extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Enterobacterales (ESBL-E) bloodstream infection (BSI) secondary ...
Key considerations on the potential impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on antimicrobial resistance research and surveillance
(OXFORD UNIV PRESS, 2021)
Antibiotic use in severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) patients during the COVID-19 pandemic has exceeded the incidence of bacterial coinfections and secondary infections, suggesting inappropriate ...
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 ...
Tunneled catheter-related bacteremia in hemodialysis patients: incidence, risk factors and outcomes. A 14-year observational study
Background Tunneled catheter-related bacteremia represents one of the major complications in patients on hemodialysis, and is associated with increased morbidity and mortality. This study aimed to evaluate the incidence ...
Nosocomial Bacteremia Due to an As Yet Unclassified Acinetobacter Genomic Species 17-Like Strain
(American Society for Microbiology, 2006-04)
We describe a case of bacteremia due to an as yet unclassified Acinetobacter genomic species 17-like strain. The recognition of this microorganism as non-Acinetobacter baumannii may have important epidemiological implications, ...
Epidemiological and Clinical Complexity of Amoxicillin-Clavulanate- Resistant Escherichia coli
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013-07)
Two hundred twelve patients with colonization/infection due to amoxicillin-clavulanate (AMC)-resistant Escherichia coli were studied. OXA-1- and inhibitor-resistant TEM (IRT)-producing strains were associated with urinary ...
Long-term outcome of patients after a single interruption of antiretroviral therapy: a cohort study
(BioMed Central, 2012)
Background: To describe the long term outcome of patients who interrupted highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) once, identify the variables associated with earlier need to re-start HAART, and the response when ...
Intestinal colonization due to Escherichia coli ST131: Risk factors and prevalence
(Biomed Central, 2018-11-15)
Background Escherichia coli sequence type 131 (ST131) is a successful clonal group that has dramatically spread during the last decades and is considered an important driver for the rapid increase of quinolone resistance ...
Real world evidence of calcifediol or vitamin D prescription and mortality rate of COVID-19 in a retrospective cohort of hospitalized Andalusian patients
(Nature Research, 2021-12-03)
COVID-19 is a major worldwide health problem because of acute respiratory distress syndrome, and mortality. Several lines of evidence have suggested a relationship between the vitamin D endocrine system and severity of ...
