INTRODUCTION Pneumococcal infections are a major public health problem because of the virulence of this bacterium and its ability to develop resistance. MATERIAL AND METHOD Two hundred and ninety-four strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae were isolated from sterile (56.8%) and non-sterile samples (43.2%), from January 2001 to July 2010. RESULTS The(More)

A carbapenem resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae strain was isolated in October 2011 in the pediatric unit of the Hôpital central de l'armée in Algeria, this strain have been confirmed for the production of OXA-48 carbapenemase. The blaOXA-48 gene was located on a self conjugative plasmid of 70kb. Multilocus sequence typing indicated the presence of the(More)
Biomedical articles emerging from Algeria between 1993 an 1998 were analysed in order to evaluate the scientific output. By developing a search strategy based on complementary bibliographic databases, 221 articles were retrieved, which geographic location, research topic, language, journal name and impact factor were analysed.

A glycopeptide-resistant Enterococcus faecium (EFRG) was isolated from a wound in a patient hospitalized in a university hospital in Algiers. This strain was resistant to several antibiotics. This patient was carrying this strain in the digestive tract which may partly explain its origin. Genotypic comparison of the two strains by pulsed field gel(More)
The Global Meningococcal Initiative (GMI) has recently considered current issues in Middle Eastern and African countries, and produced two recommendations: (i) that vaccination of attendees should be considered for some types of mass-gathering events, as some countries mandate for the Hajj, and (ii) vaccination of people with human immunodeficiency virus(More)
We have evaluated the activity of a new fluoroquinolone, trovafloxacin (CP-99,219), against 434 strains; 24 of them are resistant to ciprofloxacin. Against gram-negative bacteria, trovafloxacin has the same activity as the others fluoroquinolones. Against gram-positive bacteria, this antibiotic agent is very active. (MIC = 0.016 to 0.5 microgram/ml);(More)
