Seventeen Klebsiella pneumoniae clinical isolates carrying the bla(VIM-1) metallo-beta-lactamase gene were collected in the intensive care units of three hospitals in Athens, Greece, in 2002. They exhibited various carbapenem resistance levels (Etest MICs of imipenem ranged from 4 to 32 microg/ml). All isolates gave positive results by the imipenem-EDTA(More)
The susceptibilities to macrolides and telithromycin of 161 Streptococcus pyogenes and 145 Streptococcus pyogenes strains, consecutively isolated from five Greek hospitals, were determined by Etest. Moreover, mechanisms of resistance to macrolides were phenotypically and genetically determined by double disk induction test and PCR, respectively. Of the S.(More)
