Clinical isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae producing NDM-1 carbapenemase from India (n = 22), the United Kingdom (n = 13), and Sweden (n = 4) were subjected to multilocus sequence typing (MLST), automated repetitive sequence-based PCR (rep-PCR), serotyping, virulence gene screening, and plasmid replicon typing. The most frequently detected MLST sequence(More)
Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a public health problem worldwide. The aim of the present study was to investigate the molecular epidemiology and antimicrobial susceptibilities of MRSA strains in Stockholm, Sweden in 2014. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) was used to characterise the strains. Antimicrobial susceptibilities to(More)
Coagulase-negative Staphylococci, including Staphylococcus epidermidis, are common pathogens in orthopedic prosthesis infections. Operation and prolonged treatment with rifampicin in combination with another antibiotic is often required. Coagulase-negative Staph-ylococci are frequently multi-resistant, but resistance to vancomycin is rare in Sweden.(More)
Objectives The need for rapid antibiotic susceptibility testing increases with escalating levels of antimicrobial resistance in Enterobacteriaceae. Our objective was to evaluate the accuracy of reading EUCAST disc diffusion, ROSCO ESBL and carbapenemase detection kits and the Mast Carbapenemase Activity Test (CAT-ID) disc, after 6 h of incubation.
