Five plasmid-mediated beta-lactamases conferring high-level resistance to ceftazidime were isolated from Klebsiella pneumoniae strains in the same hospital. These enzymes had isoelectric points ranging from 5.3 to 6.5 (CAZ-1, 5.55; CAZ-2, 6.0; CAZ-3, 5.3; CAZ-6, 6.5; and CAZ-7, 6.3). All isolates and their Escherichia coli transconjugants were highly(More)
PURPOSE Drug abuse during pregnancy is an important public health problem. Montpellier University Hospital established a center for addiction and pregnancy in 1997 to provide multidisciplinary prenatal care aimed at reducing maternal and fetal risks during pregnancy and afterwards. This study assesses the trends in drug-taking behavior and pregnancy outcome(More)
Infections caused by strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae resistant to broad-spectrum cephalosporins have been observed recently in hospitals in Clermont-Ferrand, France. beta-Lactam resistance resulted primarily from the plasmid-mediated, expanded-spectrum CTX-1 beta-lactamase. Furthermore, since 1987 some K. pneumoniae isolates more resistant to ceftazidime(More)
Multiresistant Klebsiella pneumoniae strains isolated from three patients in the same intensive care unit were more resistant to ceftazidime than to cefotaxime and aztreonam but remained susceptible to moxalactam and imipenem. Resistance to beta-lactams, kanamycin, streptomycin, sulfonamides, and tetracyclines was transferable to Escherichia coli by(More)
BACKGROUND Studies on infant outcomes of opiate-dependent pregnant women find a high rate of premature mother-child separation and to a lesser extent developmental delay. The specific role of in utero heroin exposure in the determination of the developmental outcome seems to be less important than the home environment. OBJECTIVE Describe the health and(More)
