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 ...
Modelling the epidemiology of Escherichia coli ST131 and the impact of interventions on the community and healthcare centres
(Cambridge University Press, 2016)
ST131 Escherichia coli is an emergent clonal group that has achieved successful worldwide spread through a combination of virulence and antimicrobial resistance. Our aim was to develop a mathematical model, based on ...
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 ...
Inoculum Effect on the Efficacies of Amoxicillin-Clavulanate, Piperacillin-Tazobactam, and Imipenem against Extended-Spectrum -Lactamase (ESBL)-Producing and Non-ESBL-Producing Escherichia coli in an Experimental Murine Sepsis Model
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013-04)
Escherichia coli is commonly involved in infections with a heavy bacterial burden. Piperacillin-tazobactam and carbapenems are among the recommended empirical treatments for health care-associated complicated intra-abdominal ...
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 ...
Four main virotypes among extended-spectrum-β-lactamase-producing isolates of Escherichia coli O25b:H4-B2-ST131: bacterial, epidemiological, and clinical characteristics
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013-10)
A total of 1,021 extended-spectrum- -lactamase-producing Escherichia coli (ESBLEC) isolates obtained in 2006 during a Spanish national survey conducted in 44 hospitals were analyzed for the presence of the O25b:H4-B2-ST131 ...
Populations of extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae are different in human-polluted environment and food items: a multicentre European study
Objectives To assess the extent to which food items are a source of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) -producing Escherichia coli (ESBL-Ec) and ESBL-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (ESBL-Kp) for humans in five European ...
Prevalence, Incidence, and Risk Factors for Intestinal Colonization Due to Fluoroquinolone-Resistant ST131 Escherichia coli: a Longitudinal Study in Highly Dependent, Long-Term Care Facility Residents
(American Society for Microbiology, 2022)
Escherichia coli ST131 clade C is an important driver for fluoroquinolone resistance (FQ-R). We conducted a prospective observational study in residents from two long-term care facilities (LTCFs) in Seville, Spain, in 2018. ...
Effectiveness of Fosfomycin for the Treatment of Multidrug-Resistant Escherichia coli Bacteremic Urinary Tract Infections A Randomized Clinical Trial
(Jama Nerwork Open, 2022)
Importance The consumption of broad-spectrum drugs has increased as a consequence of the spread of multidrug-resistant (MDR) Escherichia coli. Finding alternatives for these infections is critical, for which some neglected ...
