Drug resistance surveillance and trend monitoring resistance rates bring some insights into tuberculosis (TB) control. The current study reports the characteristics of TB and drug resistance during a 10-yr prospective surveillance of culture-positive TB in France. Data for the current study was collected from 1995-2004 via a sentinel network of laboratories(More)
SETTING Nine French laboratories routinely involved in mycobacterial work. OBJECTIVE To assess the detection of Mycobacterium tuberculosis in experimental samples by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) using the insertion sequence IS6110 as a target for deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) amplification. DESIGN Nine laboratories participated in a blind study of the(More)
To assess the role of Mycobacterium tuberculosis disease in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, the authors compared survival of tuberculosis patients and controls matched on year of HIV diagnosis and CD4+ lymphocyte count. Patients were selected in the Aquitaine Cohort, which follows, since 1985, all patients infected with HIV, aged more than 13(More)
In recent years, the most common cause of infection in neutropenic patients has shifted from Gram-negative to Gram-positive bacteria. To compare the efficacy and toxicity of teicoplanin and vancomycin in neutropenic patients, we conducted a prospective study of 151 adult leukaemic patients hospitalized for intensive chemotherapy. After chemotherapy, the(More)
INTRODUCTION The incidence of cardiovascular implantable electronic device (CIED) infection is steadily increasing. However, no consensus has been reached with respect to the type and duration of antimicrobial therapy in this specific population of patients. The role played by new anti-Staphylococcus agents has not been defined. The aims of this study were(More)
PURPOSE Data collected during the years 1995 and 1996 in the course of an epidemiological survey of tuberculosis in Gironde allowed comparison of pulmonary tuberculosis with extrapulmonary localizations, evaluation of the importance of each localization and highlighting of potential risk factors. METHODS Patients living in Gironde who had evidence of(More)
The in vitro activity of pefloxacin, norfloxacin, ofloxacin and ciprofloxacin against 86 strains of mycobacteria was evaluated by broth dilution. While Mycobacterium avium, Mycobacterium scrofulaceum and Mycobacterium chelonae were resistant to all four antibacterials, the susceptibility of the other species,Mycobacterium tuberculosis, Mycobacterium(More)
BACKGROUND Mycobacterium chelonae is a ubiquitous, rapidly growing, opportunistic, non-tuberculous mycobacterium that can cause skin and bone tissue infections. We report a case of cutaneous infection due to M. chelonae following anti-TNF therapy. CASE REPORT A 70-year-old woman with a medical history of rheumatoid arthritis was admitted for several(More)
