Our study showed the antibiotic susceptibility profile of toxigenic Clostridium difficile isolated from nosocomial and community-acquired CDI between 2008 and 2010. MICs of 200 C. difficile strains were determined using E®test method in the case of erythromycin, clindamycin, moxifloxacin, rifampicin, and metronidazole. All strains were susceptible to(More)
Members of the genus Bacteroides are important components of the normal microbiota of gastrointestinal tract; however, as opportunistic pathogens are also associated with severe or even life-threatening infections with significant mortality. Various species within Bacteroides fragilis group are phenotypically very similar; thus, their identifications with(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the prevalence of toxoplasma and cytomegalovirus (CMV) infections in cases of ultrasound anomalies detected in the second trimester of pregnancy. METHODS Serological examinations for toxoplasma and CMV infection were carried out in 655 cases with sonographic findings suggestive of fetal infection, 612 cases with single ultrasound(More)
Bacteroides fragilis as a commensal bacterium is a member of the human intestinal flora, but as an opportunistic pathogen it can cause serious infections as well. Some of them, harbouring an enterotoxin gene (bft), may cause diarrhoea mainly in young children. Recently it has been shown that a member of C11 proteases called fragipain (fpn) can activate the(More)
Due to the revolutional development in sampling devices, transport media, automated equipments, microvolume probes and molecular microbiological techniques in the last decade new possibilities have become available for diagnosing microbiologically congenital infections in both the mother and the foetus and the newborn. This minireview gives an insight into(More)
INTRODUCTION Members of the Bacteroides fragilis group are the most important components of the normal human gut microbiota, but these bacteria can cause severe infections as well. Due to the frequent usage of antibiotics, the spreading of the MDR strains is a real threat worldwide. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a multicentre study 400 Bacteroides isolates(More)
