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.
Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamases: a Clinical Update
Extended-spectrum β-lactamases represent an impressive example of the ability of gram-negative bacteria to develop new antibiotic resistance mechanisms in the face of the introduction of new antimicrobial agents.
Acinetobacter baumannii: Emergence of a Successful Pathogen
This review details the significant advances that have been made in understanding of this remarkable organism over the last 10 years, including current taxonomy and species identification, issues with susceptibility testing, mechanisms of antibiotic resistance, global epidemiology, clinical impact of infection, host-pathogen interactions, and infection control and therapeutic considerations.

Infectious Diseases Society of America and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America Guidelines for Developing an Institutional Program to Enhance Antimicrobial Stewardship
This research presents a meta-analysis of 125 cases of central giant cell apoptosis, a type of cell death that is known as a “cell death” and which has been associated with Parkinson’s disease for more than 40 years.

Clinical epidemiology of the global expansion of Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemases.
Population Pharmacokinetics of Colistin Methanesulfonate and Formed Colistin in Critically Ill Patients from a Multicenter Study Provide Dosing Suggestions for Various Categories of Patients
Model-fitted parameter estimates were used to derive suggested loading and maintenance dosing regimens for various categories of patients, including those on hemodialysis and continuous renal replacement, and colistin may best be used as part of a highly active combination.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in solid-organ transplant recipients: impact and implications for management.
Overall, the mortality rate among 499 patients was 29%; disseminated infection, prior rejection, and receipt of OKT3 or anti-T cell antibodies were significant predictors of mortality in patients with tuberculosis.
Escherichia coli O25b-ST131: a pandemic, multiresistant, community-associated strain.
Phenotypic detection of the ST131 clone is not possible and DNA-based techniques, including MLST and PCR, are described, and a broad distribution has been demonstrated amongst antimicrobial-resistant E. coli.
