Multidrug-resistant, extensively drug-resistant and pandrug-resistant bacteria: an international expert proposal for interim standard definitions for acquired resistance.
TLDR
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. Expand
Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamases: a Clinical Update
TLDR
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. Expand
Acinetobacter baumannii: Emergence of a Successful Pathogen
TLDR
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. Expand
Adherence to Protease Inhibitor Therapy and Outcomes in Patients with HIV Infection
TLDR
Given the critical importance of adherence to therapy to patient outcome, secondary prevention of HIV infection, and willingness of providers to prescribe therapy, this prospectively investigated the association between protease inhibitor adherence and patient outcome and factors related to adherence. Expand
Emergence of a new antibiotic resistance mechanism in India, Pakistan, and the UK: a molecular, biological, and epidemiological study
TLDR
The prevalence of NDM-1, in multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae in India, Pakistan, and the UK is investigated, and co-ordinated international surveillance is needed. Expand
Infectious Diseases Society of America and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America Guidelines for Developing an Institutional Program to Enhance Antimicrobial Stewardship
TLDR
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. Expand
Infectious Diseases Society of America and the Society for Healthcare Epidemiology of America guidelines for developing an institutional program to enhance antimicrobial stewardship.
TLDR
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 over a century. Expand
Clinical epidemiology of the global expansion of Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemases.
TLDR
The epidemiology of Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemases across continents is summarized, issues around detection, present antibiotic options and those in development, treatment outcome and mortality, and infection control are discussed. Expand
Escherichia coli O25b-ST131: a pandemic, multiresistant, community-associated strain.
TLDR
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. Expand
Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection in solid-organ transplant recipients: impact and implications for management.
TLDR
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. Expand
