Results We examined 149 strains of S. aureus, 44.9% from cutaneous wound infections, 31.2% from blood cultures, 8.4% from sputum samples and 15.3% from other infection sites. Of the total number of strains identified, 55.7% were resistant to methicillin, 35.1% were resistant to clindamycin (D-test results are presented separately), 30.9% were resistant to(More)
Background Patients with peritoneal catheters are at risk for developing infections with germs with altered antibiotic sensitivity, being classified as Carmeli 3 due to repeated invasive contact with the hospital system. A cloudy peritoneal fluid is oftentimes a sentinel sign of infection and medical and surgical management are generally required to clear(More)
Background The global increase in antibiotic resistance and the high number of implant-associated infections have rendered antibiotics ineffective in certain cases. So it’s time for a new therapy. Bacteriophages are obligatory intracellular parasites of bacterial cells and bacteria can be infected by bacteriophages. They have specificity of infection, due(More)
Case report We report the case of a 50 year-old female patient known with bladder tumor operated in January 2014 followed by 4 weeks of intravesical BCG immunotherapy, one administration per week. After each course the patient accused low grade fever, nausea, pollakiuria and hematuria with limited duration. In March 2014, after a cystoscopy and a bladder(More)
Background After the advent of highly active antiretroviral therapy, HIV infection has turned into a chronic disease and the patient’s profile has changed dramatically. We are now treating patients that are active both socially and professionally, in whom virological response has already been achieved and quality of life has become of utmost importance,(More)
A1 The outcome of patients with recurrent versus non-recurrent pneumococcal meningitis in a tertiary health-care hospital in Bucharest Cristian-Mihail Niculae, Eliza Manea, Raluca Jipa, Simona Merisor, Ruxandra Moroti, Serban Benea, Adriana Hristea National Institute for Infectious Diseases “Prof. Dr. Matei Balș”, Bucharest, Romania; Carol Davila University(More)
Methods In this study we used a bacteriophage testing kit containing 4 types of Georgian products: PYO, INTESTI (Eliava BioPreparations, Tbilisi) and PHAGYO, PHAGESTI (JSC “Biochimpharm”, Tbilisi) to test the strains of Pseudomonas spp. and Enterococcus spp. isolated and stored from patients treated in the Adults II ward of the National Institute for(More)
INTRODUCTION Antimicrobial resistance is a growing threat for all clinical branches. This phenomenon poses important challenges in controlling infectious diseases. However, multidrug resistance is not the only issue, as bacteria that are otherwise susceptible to common antibiotics express other patterns for evading antibiotherapy, for example they can(More)
Background PCR-based tools for detection of bacterial infections can considerably shorten the timespan from patient admission to initiation of targeted antibiotherapy. As culture-based methods are operator-sensitive and yield lower rates of identification in longer timespans, dependent on speciesspecific growth rates, there is a need for new techniques(More)
Case report We present the case of a 57 year-old male patient, diagnosed with HIV infection for 14 years, and polyexperienced to antiretroviral (ARV) therapy (history of over 15 past ARV regimens). Early on in the evolution of HIV infection, the patient developed arterial hypertension, cardiomyopathy, 80% bi-carotid atheromatosis, and neurocognitive(More)
