Does the use of antibiotics in food animals pose a risk to human health? A critical review of published data.
TLDR
The application of the 'precautionary principle' is a non-scientific approach that assumes that risk assessments will be carried out, and anti-Gram-positive growth promoters would be expected to have little effect on most Gram-negative organisms.
Cowan and Steel's Manual for the Identification of Medical Bacteria
TLDR
This book is very definitely a must for anyone who calls him or herself a microbiologist, whether clinical, medical, or technological in persuasion.
The European ban on growth-promoting antibiotics and emerging consequences for human and animal health.
TLDR
The theoretical and political benefit of the widespread ban of growth promoters needs to be more carefully weighed against the increasingly apparent adverse consequences.
Laboratory diagnosis of peritonitis in patients on continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis
TLDR
The clinical course and laboratory diagnosis of peritonitis in patients undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis was studied and intraperitoneal vancomycin and ceftazidime were safe, effective, and convenient.
EPIDEMIC MULTIRESISTANT ESCHERICHIA COLI INFECTION IN WEST LAMBETH HEALTH DISTRICT
TLDR
A year-long outbreak of multiresistant Escherichia coli K52 H1, predominantly serogroup O15, is reported from south east London, where 3 patients died and the organism was acquired in the community.
Incidence and mechanisms of resistance to the combination of amoxicillin and clavulanic acid in Escherichia coli
TLDR
The rarity and diversity of inhibitor-resistant TEM-group enzymes suggest that they are the result of spontaneous mutations that have not yet spread.
Hands as route of transmission for Klebsiella species.
TLDR
Handwashing with chlorhexidine hand cleanser reliably gave 98-100% reduction in hand counts, and the introduction of routine handwashing by staff before moving from one patient to the next was associated with a significant and sustained reduction in the number of patients colonised or infected with Klebsiellae.
Antibacterial Activity of Cefamandole, a New Cephalosporin Antibiotic, Compared with that of Cephaloridine, Cephalothin, and Cephalexin
TLDR
Cefamandole was the most active of the four agents against Haemophilus species and gram-negative bacilli susceptible to cephalosporins, but had no useful activity against Pseudomonas species.
Induction of the SOS response by new 4-quinolones.
TLDR
There was also a modest increase in the rate of mutation in the lactose and galactose operons in a GalE- background, provided there was a functioning SOS system.
The causative organisms of septicaemia and their epidemiology.
TLDR
The commonest foci of infection were the urinary tract, often with catheterization or instrumentation, and intravascular access sites, from which episodes of septicaemia were increasingly caused by coagulase-negative staphylococci.
