- 1 March 2012
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
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
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
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.

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.
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.
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
