Nine Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates showing non-susceptibility to carbapenems were collected from three centres in the north-eastern region of Hungary. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) of antibiotics were determined by Etest. The putative production of a carbapenemase was tested by the modified Hodge test. The presence of bla KPC genes was(More)
Lowered fitness cost associated with resistance to fluoroquinolones was recently demonstrated to influence the clonal dynamics of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in the health care setting. We investigated whether or not a similar mechanism impacts Klebsiella pneumoniae. The fitness of K. pneumoniae isolates from major international(More)
We report the first isolation and characterization of several Enterobacteriaceae strains harboring bla(NDM-1), bla(OXA-48) and/or bla(OXA-181) genes in a Romanian emergency teaching hospital. Between January 2010 and September 2012 nine carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae strains were identified. The bla(NDM-1) gene was present in two Enterobacter(More)
In order to reveal colonization with multidrug-resistant bacteria early, routine screening is done on samples of all patients of the neonatal intensive care units at Semmelweis University, Hungary. Due to the extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) screening examinations, emergence of multidrug-resistant Enterobacter cloacae isolates was found with suspicion(More)
In August 2012, 2 carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from the University of Szeged were submitted to the National Reference Laboratory at the National Centre for Epidemiology to confirm the carbapenem resistance mechanism. PCR assays and sequencing revealed that the isolates harboured the blaOXA-162 carbapenemase gene, a very recently(More)
The first plasmid-mediated AmpC β-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (pAmpC KP) isolate was detected in December 2009 in Hungary. Hungarian microbiological laboratories were asked to send all KP strains showing cefoxitin resistance and decreased susceptibility or resistance to any third-generation cephalosporins to the Reference Laboratories at the(More)
