VIM-1, VIM-2, and GES-5 Carbapenemases Among Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolates at a Tertiary Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey.
Worldwide increase in carbapenem resistance and transferable carbapenemases are significant challenges in treatment of Pseudomonas aeruginosa infections. In this study, investigation of carbapenemaseExpand
Evaluation of the Carbapenem Inactivation Method for Detection of Carbapenemase-Producing Gram-Negative Bacteria in Comparison with the RAPIDEC CARBA NP.
Timely detection of carbapenemases by both phenotypic and genotypic methods is essential for developing strategies to control the spread of infections by carbapenem-resistant isolates and relatedExpand
Comparison of Carba NP-Direct, Carbapenem Inactivation Method, and β-CARBA Tests for Detection of Carbapenemase Production in Enterobacteriaceae.
Rapid and accurate detection of carbapenemase-producing isolates are extremely important for management of antimicrobial therapy and the implementation of infection control measures. We evaluated theExpand
Corynebacterium propinquum bronchopneumonia in a child with ataxia telangiectasia.
Nondiphtherial Corynebacterium species isolated from clinical specimens are usually considered as contaminants by many clinicians when reported by microbiologists. However, an increasing number ofExpand
Carbapenemase -producing Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from Turkey: first report of P. aeruginosa high-risk clones with VIM-5- and IMP-7-type carbapenemases in a tertiary hospital.
We investigated the presence of carbapenemases in carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates, which were collected over a 14-month period in a Turkish hospital, with in-depth molecularExpand
Evaluation of Teicoplanin Resistance Detected by Automated System in Coagulase Negative Staphylococci: A Comparison with Gradient Test and Broth Microdilution Methods
Upon the observation of an increase in teicoplanin resistance rates in coagulase negative staphylococci (CoNS) isolates determined by the automated system, we aimed to compare the automated systemExpand
