Multidrug-resistant, extensively drug-resistant and pandrug-resistant bacteria: an international expert proposal for interim standard definitions for acquired resistance.
A group of international experts came together through a joint initiative by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, to create a standardized international terminology with which to describe acquired resistance profiles in Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus spp.
Attributable deaths and disability-adjusted life-years caused by infections with antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the EU and the European Economic Area in 2015: a population-level modelling analysis
The burden of infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria of public health concern in countries of the EU and European Economic Area in 2015, measured in number of cases, attributable deaths, and disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs), is estimated.
Discovery, research, and development of new antibiotics: the WHO priority list of antibiotic-resistant bacteria and tuberculosis.
Future development strategies should focus on antibiotics that are active against multidrug-resistant tuberculosis and Gram-negative bacteria, and include antibiotic-resistant bacteria responsible for community-acquired infections.
Clostridium difficile infection in Europe: a hospital-based survey
The data emphasise the importance of multicountry surveillance to detect and control C difficile infection in Europe and build capacity for diagnosis and surveillance.
Quality of Life of People with Epilepsy: A European Study
The aim of this study was to collect data from as many countries as possible to study the impact of epilepsy and its treatment on people with epilepsy in Europe.
Self-medication with Antimicrobial Drugs in Europe
Antimicrobial drug self-medication occurs most often in eastern and southern Europe and least often in northern and western Europe.
Antimicrobial resistance in isolates from inpatients and outpatients in the United States: increasing importance of the intensive care unit.
There was a significant stepwise decrease in the percentage of resistant organisms isolated from patients in the intensive care unit (ICU), non-ICU inpatients, and outpatients.
Livestock-associated Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus in Humans, Europe
To estimate the proportion of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolates from humans that were sequence type (ST) 398, we surveyed 24 laboratories in 17 countries in Europe in 2007.
Burden of Six Healthcare-Associated Infections on European Population Health: Estimating Incidence-Based Disability-Adjusted Life Years through a Population Prevalence-Based Modelling Study
The main limitations of the study are the variability in the parameter estimates, in particular the disease models’ case fatalities, and the use of the Rhame and Sudderth formula for estimating incident number of cases from prevalence data.
Occurrence of carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli in the European survey of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (EuSCAPE): a prospective, multinational study.
The development of a consistent sampling framework and the results of the first structured survey on the occurrence of carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli in European hospitals are reported.
