Looking for therapeutic options, we assessed the minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of 7 antimicrobial agents against extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (n = 58) and Escherichia coli (n = 84) isolates. High rates of susceptibility were shown for both E coli and K pneumoniae against ertapenem (100% for both),(More)
This study aimed at developing a real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) assay for the rapid diagnosis of human brucellosis on clinical specimens. Three assays with hybridization probe detection on the LightCycler instrument were developed and compared targeting the 16S-23S internal transcribed spacer region (ITS) and the genes encoding for omp25 and(More)
