BACKGROUND In order to investigate the epidemiology, molecular characteristics, and distribution of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)- and AmpC-producing Escherichia coli from community-onset infections in Chinese county hospitals. METHODS E. coli isolates were collected from patients with community-onset infections in 30 county hospitals. ESBL(More)
|This paper presents a detailed study on the impact of oating body in partially-depleted (PD) SOI MOS-FET on various digital VLSI CMOS circuit families. The parasitic bipolar eect resulting from the oating body is shown to degrade the circuit noise margin and stability i n general. In certain dynamic circuits and wide multiplex-ers, the parasitic bipolar(More)
In order to assess the prevalence of carbapenem-hydrolyzing class D β-lactamase genes in Acinetobacter spp. isolates in China, we conducted a polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based surveillance of OXA-type β-lactamase gene clusters for a total of 2,880 Acinetobacter spp. isolates collected from 23 Chinese provinces. All isolates were tested for(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii is an important pathogen of healthcare-associated infections and shows multidrug resistance. With the increasing application of tigecycline, isolates resistant to this antibiotic are of growing concern clinically. However, the definitive mechanism of tigecycline resistance remains unclear. To explore the mechanism of tigecycline(More)
BACKGROUND The relationship between Klebsiella pneumoniae and nosocomial and community-acquired infections is well known, and K. pneumoniae resistance to most antibiotics is increasing worldwide. In contrast, tigecycline remains active against many bacterial strains, and serves as a last resort for treating multi-drug resistant bacterial infections. That(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii, a non-fermenting gram-negative coccobacillus, is a major pathogen responsible for a variety of healthcare-associated infections, including pneumonia, urinary tract and bloodstream infections. Moreover, A. baumannii is associated with alarming increases in drug resistance rates to almost all available antibiotics leaving limited(More)
The aim of this work was to investigate the epidemiological and genetic characteristics of ESBL-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (ESBL-Kp) causing community-onset infections. K. pneumoniae isolates were collected from 31 Chinese secondary hospitals between August 2010 and 2011. Genes encoding ESBL and AmpC beta-lactamases were detected by PCR. The isolates(More)
Tigecycline (Tgc) is considered a last-resort antibiotic for the treatment of multi-drug resistant bacteria. To study Tgc resistance development in the important nosocomial pathogen Acinetobacter baumannii, we adopted six clinical isolates from three patients undergoing antibiotic treatment, and bacterial genomic sequences and seven strand-specific(More)
