Genetic characterisation of drug resistance and clonal dynamics of Acinetobacter baumannii in a hospital setting in Mexico.
The aim of this study was to determine the clinical characteristics, molecular epidemiology and biofilm production of Acinetobacter baumannii clinical isolates obtained from a tertiary-care hospitalExpand
Surveillance of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus in a Pediatric Hospital in Mexico City during a 7-Year Period (1997 to 2003): Clonal Evolution and Impact of Infection Control
ABSTRACT Between 1997 and 2000 a single multidrug-susceptible methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus clone, M (sequence type 30 [ST30]-staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec [SCCmec] type IV),Expand
Extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing enterobacteriaceae causing nosocomial infections in Mexico. A retrospective and multicenter study.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBLs) production is still the most frequent mechanism of resistance to cephalosporins in gram-negative bacteria. The aim of the study was toExpand
Widespread of ESBL- and carbapenemase GES-type genes on carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa clinical isolates: a multicenter study in Mexican hospitals.
The present work describes a prevalence of 36.2% of carbapenemases IMP-, VIM-, and GES-type on 124 imipenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa clinical isolates. The ESBL GES-19 and carbapenemaseExpand
Vejovine, a new antibiotic from the scorpion venom of Vaejovis mexicanus.
Multidrug resistant bacterial infections are one of the most important health problems in recent years. Resistance to conventional antibiotics limits the therapeutic options causing increase rate inExpand
Prevalence and characterization of plasmid-mediated quinolone resistance genes in extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae isolates in Mexico.
The objectives of this study were to investigate the prevalence of plasmid-mediated quinolone resistance genes in a collection of 226 extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing EnterobacteriaceaeExpand
ISEcp1-Mediated Transposition of qnrB-Like Gene in Escherichia coli
ABSTRACT A novel QnrB-like plasmid-mediated resistance determinant, QnrB19, was identified from an Escherichia coli clinical isolate from Colombia. Its gene was associated with an ISEcp1-likeExpand
Characterization of Plasmid-Mediated Quinolone Resistance (PMQR) Genes in Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamase-Producing Enterobacteriaceae Pediatric Clinical Isolates in Mexico
This work describes the characterization of plasmid-mediated quinolone-resistance (PMQR) genes from a multicenter study of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae pediatric clinical isolates in Mexico. TheExpand
Molecular Analysis and Risk Factors for Escherichia coli Producing Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamase Bloodstream Infection in Hematological Malignancies
Introduction Patients with hematologic malignancies have greater risk-factors for primary bloodstream infections (BSI). Methods From 2004–2009, we analyzed bacteremia caused by extended-spectrumExpand
Genomic Epidemiology of NDM-1-Encoding Plasmids in Latin American Clinical Isolates Reveals Insights into the Evolution of Multidrug Resistance
Abstract Bacteria that produce the broad-spectrum Carbapenem antibiotic New Delhi Metallo-β-lactamase (NDM) place a burden on health care systems worldwide, due to the limited treatment options forExpand
