Extrahuman Epidemiology of Acinetobacter baumannii in Lebanon
TLDR
Animals can be a potential reservoir for A. baumannii and the dissemination of new emerging carbapenemases and the roles of the novel animal clones identified in community-acquired infections should be investigated. Expand
Reservoirs of Acinetobacter baumannii outside the hospital and potential involvement in emerging human community-acquired infections.
TLDR
Overall, the emergence of community-acquired A. baumannii infections could be associated with interactions between animals, environment, and humans that are considered to be potentially involved in the emergence or re-emergence of some infectious diseases. Expand
Molecular epidemiology of Acinetobacter baumannii in different hospitals in Tripoli, Lebanon using blaOXA-51-like sequence based typing
TLDR
The results showed a successful predominance of international clone 2 with a widespread occurrence of OXA-23 carbapenemase in Lebanese hospitals, emphasising the urgent need of effective measures to control the spread of A. baumannii in this country. Expand
First report of carbapenemase-producing Acinetobacter baumannii carriage in pets from the community in France.
TLDR
Assessing A. baumannii carriage in domesticated animals coming for a consultation in the veterinarian school of Nantes, in metropolitan France found that both strains were highly resistant to imipenem and remained susceptible to ceftazidime according to the Antibiogram Committee of the French Society for Microbiology (CASFM) recommendations. Expand
Is cohorting the only solution to control carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae outbreaks? A single-centre experience.
TLDR
Understanding ward variables associated with CPE spread can help design suitable solutions, and colonization pressure and antibiotic consumption seems to be driving in-hospital transmission, along with caregiver:patient ratio. Expand
First case of OXA-24-producing Acinetobacter baumannii in cattle from Reunion Island, France.
TLDR
The objective here was to report the results of a screening campaign performed on a sample of cattle to identify A. baumannii carriage on a farm on Reunion Island, and find the wide use of antibiotics in foodproducing animals that could be responsible for the selection of resistant bacteria, including carbapenemase-producing A. rpoB gene. Expand
Discordance in the minimal inhibitory concentrations of ertapenem for Enterobacter cloacae: Vitek 2 system versus Etest and agar dilution methods.
TLDR
The Vitek 2 system was used to determine ertapenem minimal inhibitory concentrations (MICs) for Enterobacter cloacae isolates, with the MICs for these isolates when measured by two methods performed in agar medium: the Etest and agar plate dilution method (APDM). Expand
Acinetobacter pittii isolated more frequently than Acinetobacter baumannii in blood cultures: the experience of a French hospital.
TLDR
It is found that these species were important hospital-acquired pathogens, and the importance of A. baumannii complex species identification is emphasized. Expand
High prevalence of closely-related Acinetobacter baumannii in pets according to a multicentre study in veterinary clinics, Reunion Island.
TLDR
Despite the VC in which animals have been sampled were located all around RI, most isolates were closely-related (>90% similarity by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis) and additional studies are needed to improve the understanding about interactions between the different reservoirs of AB in RI.
