Abstract Background This study aimed to evaluate the practicality and advantage of Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (GLASS) for surveillance of urine culture samples collected from patients with bacteriuria. Methods GLASS has been implemented at a tertiary care university hospital in Thailand by using the web application program to collect clinical data and urine culture data from patients with positive urine culture. Results There were 5,085 urine samples from 3,545 patients ...

Abstract Objectives The aim of this study was to investigate the mechanisms of fosfomycin resistance and epidemiological characteristics in fosfomycin-resistant enterococci. Methods A collection of 761 enterococcal clinical isolates were studied, investigated the susceptibility of fosfomycin using the agar dilution method and analyzed for mechanisms of resistance by polymerase chain reaction and quantitative real-time PCR. Furthermore, pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and multilocus seque...

Abstract Objectives The aim of this study was to characterize E. coli strains harboring plasmid mediated quinolone resistance (PMQR) genes recovered from 116 various samples of healthy and diarrheic animals. Methods All nalidixic acid-resistant E. coli isolates were screened for the occurrence PMQR genes. Then, for positive isolates, chromosomal mutations in QRDR of GyrA and ParC, integrons class 1 and class 2, genes encoding tetracycline-, sulfonamides-resistance, and genes encoding virulence f...

Abstract Aims Surgical site infections (SSIs) contribute to significant post-surgical morbidity globally. Antimicrobial stewardship programs (ASP) are essential to reduce SSIs and keep antimicrobial resistance in check, especially in Low and Middle Income Countries (LMIC). This study aims to show reproducibility of ASP implementation and SSI prevention measures in a semi-private institution with high consumption of peri-operative prophylactic antimicrobials beyond guidelines. Methods In a prospe...

Abstract The aim of this study is to determine the resistance to anti-TB drugs of Mycobacterium tuberculosis strains isolated from patients diagnosed in southeast Spain, and to study related epidemiological factors. Design This retrospective study analyses five-year data obtained in southeast Spain for a total equivalent population of 1,735,608 inhabitants. Clinical samples were examined from 557 patients with suspected pulmonary (n = 470; 84.4%) or extrapulmonary (n = 87; 15.6%) tuberculosis, t...

ABSTRACT Objectives Members of the Burkholderia cepacia complex (Bcc) have been isolated from various environmental and clinical samples and reportedly pose a threat to human health. Here, we unravel the draft genome sequence of Burkholderia sp. LS-044, an antibiotic-resistant endophytic strain affiliated to Bcc (ST-895) inhabiting the rice (Oryza sativa ssp. japonica cv. Tainung 71) root. Methods Antimicrobial susceptibility of LS-044 was evaluated comparatively using Burkholderia sp. (CC-Al74 ...

Abstract Objective Therapy of infections caused by carbapenemase-producing K. pneumoniae (CPKP) frequently involves combination therapy with various agents in the hope of achieving synergistic effects. Routine laboratory antimicrobial synergy testing is a service currently unavailable, due to the laborious nature of the reference Time Kill Assay (TKA), as well as the commonly held Checkerboard (CB) method. We explored whether easier methods, based on the Etest technique, might offer an adequate ...

Abstract Background In this study, we investigated the occurrence of Extended Spectrum β lactamase (ESBL) genes coexisting with carbapenemase, AmpC and aminoglycoside resistance gene in uropathogens. Methods The antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed by Kirby Bauer disc diffusion method. The antibiotic resistance genes were detected by multiplex PCR. Results Out of 1516 consecutive urine samples, 454 showed significant bacteriuria with a prevalence rate of 30% Escherichia coli (n = 3...

Abstract Objectives There are limited surveillance studies on the epidemiology and resistance rates of Nocardia species in Australia, particularly in the jurisdiction of New South Wales. This study aimed to investigate the species distribution and antimicrobial susceptibility of a large number of contemporary (2011-2016) clinical Nocardia species referred to a large tertiary hospital in Sydney, Australia. Methods Two hundred and seventy Nocardia isolates identified to the species level by dual t...
