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 ...
Genetic Variability among ampC Genes from Acinetobacter Genomic Species 3
(American Society for Microbiology, 2009-03)
As a part of a nationwide study in Spain, 15 clinical isolates of Acinetobacter genomic species 3 (AG3) were analyzed. The main objective of the study was to characterize the ampC genes from these isolates and to determine ...
Clinical Features of Infections and Colonization by Acinetobacter Genospecies 3
(American Society for Microbiology, 2010-12)
Two hundred twenty-one isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii and 15 of Acinetobacter genospecies 3 (AG3) were consecutively collected in a 30-day period during the nationwide project GEIH-Ab2000. Nosocomial acquisition (P = ...
Antimicrobial Susceptibility and Mechanisms of Resistance to Quinolones and b-Lactams in Acinetobacter Genospecies 3
(American Society for Microbiology, 2004-04)
Antimicrobial susceptibility was determined in 15 epidemiologically unrelated clinical isolates of Acinetobacter genospecies 3. Moreover, the mechanisms of resistance to some b-lactam antibiotics may be associated with the ...
Contribution of Efflux Pumps, Porins, and B-Lactamases to Multidrug Resistance in Clinical Isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii
(American Society for Microbiology, 2013-11)
Weinvestigated the mechanisms of resistance to carbapenems, aminoglycosides, glycylcyclines, tetracyclines, and quinolones in 90 multiresistant clinical strains of Acinetobacter baumannii isolated from two genetically ...
Infección por virus pandémico (H1N1) 2009 en Andalucía
Desde que en abril de 2009 la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OMS) alertó de la existencia de casos de infección humana por un nuevo virus de la gripe AH1N1 de origen porcino, las autoridades sanitarias de Andalucía ...
Combating virulence of Gramnegative bacilli by OmpA inhibition
(Nature Research, 2017)
Preventing the adhesion of pathogens to host cells provides an innovative approach to tackling multidrug-resistant bacteria. In this regard, the identifcation of outer membrane protein A (OmpA) as a key bacterial virulence ...
Synergistic Activity of Niclosamide in Combination With Colistin Against Colistin-Susceptible and Colistin-Resistant Acinetobacter baumannii and Klebsiella pneumoniae
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2018-10-03)
Colistin is among the few antibiotics effective against multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii and Klebsiella pneumoniae clinical isolates. However, in the last few years, colistin-resistant A. baumannii and K. ...
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 ...
