BACKGROUND Typhoid fever remains a worldwide problem, but it is particularly common in Southeast Asia, including Indonesia. The causative agent Salmonella Typhi is known to have significant genome plasticity. METHODOLOGY This study describes genetic fingerprints using restriction fragment length polymorphism with SpeI of chromosomal DNA and pulsed-field(More)

BACKGROUND This study examined the susceptibility of Gram-negative bacteria in the bloodstream to antimicrobials with the aim of providing information relevant to the guidance of therapy. METHODOLOGY Blood specimens received by the Laboratory of Clinical Microbiology, Faculty of Medicine, University of Indonesia, from 2002 to 2008, were analyzed for the(More)
Aim To report the presence of environmental microorganisms, A. anitratus, in blood of hospitalized patients in Jakarta from 2002 to 2008 and their susceptibility to antibiotics. Methods A Retrospective study w as performed on all blood specimens that were received in Clinical Microbiology Laboratory (CML) Faculty of Medicine University of Indonesia during(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii (A. baumannii) is Gram-negative coccobacilli that has emerged as a nosocomial pathogen. Several reports in Indonesia showed the continuous presence of A. baumannii. This study aimed to determine the incidence of A. baumannii bacteremia in neonates in the Neonatal Unit Dr. Cipto Mangunkusumo Hospital (RSCM), Jakarta, Indonesia, and(More)
Background: Hospital Acquired Infection (HAI)-Blood Stream infection (BSI) cause considerable morbidity, mortality and health care costs. This study aimed to assess the HAI-BSI in neonates with birth weight 1000-2000 g in Neonatal Unit Cipto Mangunkusumo National Hospital (RSUPNCM), Jakarta, during 4 months period (Oct 2010-Jan 2011), and to review the(More)
An indirect enzyme-linked immwtosorbent assay (ELISA) was used to detecl immunoglobulin M antibodies against outer membrane protein (OMPs) from Salmonella typhi as the antigen. Acute phase, first week, sera from adult patients with culture confirmed typhoid feve4 sera from culture negative suspected typhoid fever and sera from healthy blood donors were(More)
A study of genotyping (pulsotyping) of Salmonella typhi (S. typhi) isolates using pulse-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) methods was performed to examine their genetic diversity, and relationship between genetic characteristics and clinical outcomes. Sixty-six S. typhi isolates obtained from sporadic hospitalized typhoid fever cases were used in this study.(More)
