Ostfeld RS. Investigating and managing the rapid emergence of white-nose syndrome, a novel, fatal, infectious disease of hibernating bats.(More)
The molecular epidemiology and the genetic basis of carbapenem resistance was investigated in 185 Acinetobacter baumannii isolates obtained from 13 centers of northern Croatia and Istria during 2009–2010. All isolates were multidrug-resistant, and 35 % (n = 64) were resistant to both imipenem and meropenem. ISAba1-driven overexpression of the intrinsic bla(More)
Chrysobacterium gleum is a nonmotile, oxidase positive, non-fermentative un-sporulate Gram-negative bacillus, bacteria belonging to the genus Chrysobacterium. Infections caused by Chrysobacterium spp are usually health care associated and the most frequent in immunocompromised patients and neonates. In this report we present a case of a 35-year-old female(More)
Carbapenems are potent í µí»½-lactam antibiotics used to treat serious infections in hospital settings. In comparison to peni-cillins, cephalosporins, or í µí»½-lactam/í µí»½-lactamase inhibitor, they have broad antimicrobial spectrum that includes Gram-positive (e.g., imipenem, doripenem) and Gram-negative bacteria (e.g., meropenem, ertapenem). Imipenem(More)
Enterobakterije mogu razviti rezistenciju na karbapeneme zbog hiperprodukcijè-laktamaza proširenog spektra ili plazmidnih AmpC`-laktamaza u kombinaciji s gubitkom porina vanjske membrane ili zbog produkcije karbapenemaza iz grupe A (KPC, IMI, NMC, SME), B (metalo-`-laktamaza iz VIM, IMP i NDM serije) ili D (OXA-48`-laktamaze). Karbapenemaze koje se nalaze u(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii is an opportun-istic nosocomial pathogen and one of the six most important multidrug-resistant microorganisms in intensive care units (ICU). The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence of antimicrobial resistant A. baumannii strains in ICU. We analysed antibiotic susceptibility of A. baumannii isolates collected in(More)
In our investigation 119 patients suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome, and 45 suffering from cubital tunnel syndrome have been analyzed. The above mentioned syndromes belong to compressive mononeuropathies and are the result of the narrowing of the anatomical channel, through which the nerve passes, causing direct or indirect pressure on the nerve and(More)
