The concurrent presence of bla CTX-M-1 and bla TEM-52 genes on similar plasmids of Escherichia coli isolated from poultry, chicken meat and humans supports the occurrence of food-borne transmission of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) genes. ESBL-producing E. coli (ESBL-E. coli) are most frequently detected in hospitalised patients and are known to(More)
In graph theoretical models of the spread of disease through populations, the spread of opinion through social networks, and the spread of faults through distributed computer networks, vertices are in two states, either black or white, and these states are dynamically updated at discrete time steps according to the rules of the particular conversion process(More)
The adequate detection of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) is essential for adequate antibiotic therapy and for infection control purposes, especially in an outbreak setting. Selective agars play an important role in the detection of CPE. The Oxoid Brilliance™ CRE Agar (Thermo Fisher Scientific) was evaluated for the detection of CPE using(More)
