Escherichia coli ST131, an Intriguing Clonal Group
SUMMARY In 2008, a previously unknown Escherichia coli clonal group, sequence type 131 (ST131), was identified on three continents. Today, ST131 is the predominant E. coli lineage amongExpand
Intercontinental emergence of Escherichia coli clone O25:H4-ST131 producing CTX-M-15.
BACKGROUND Concomitant with the recent emergence of CTX-M-type extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs), Escherichia coli has become the enterobacterial species most affected by ESBLs. MultipleExpand
Genomic Definition of Hypervirulent and Multidrug-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae Clonal Groups
We created a Web-accessible genome database to enable rapid extraction of genotype, virulence, and resistance information from sequences.
Insulin resistance in chronic hepatitis C: association with genotypes 1 and 4, serum HCV RNA level, and liver fibrosis.
BACKGROUND & AIMS Our study was designed to test the association between insulin resistance (IR) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) genotypes, serum HCV RNA level and liver fibrosis stage in a largeExpand
Early serum HBsAg drop: A strong predictor of sustained virological response to pegylated interferon alfa‐2a in HBeAg‐negative patients
Pegylated interferon alfa‐2a (PEG‐IFN) may induce sustained virological response (SVR) in 20% of hepatitis B e antigen (HBeAg)‐negative chronic hepatitis B (CHB) patients. In addition, loss ofExpand
Abrupt emergence of a single dominant multidrug-resistant strain of Escherichia coli.
BACKGROUND Fluoroquinolone-resistant Escherichia coli are increasingly prevalent. Their clonal origins--potentially critical for control efforts--remain undefined. METHODS Antimicrobial resistanceExpand
Emergence and Spread of Three Clonally Related Virulent Isolates of CTX-M-15-Producing Escherichia coli with Variable Resistance to Aminoglycosides and Tetracycline in a French Geriatric Hospital
ABSTRACT Three types of multidrug-resistant Escherichia coli isolates, called GEN S, GEN R, and AMG S, according to their three different aminoglycoside resistance patterns, were responsible forExpand
CTX-M-15-producing Escherichia coli clinical isolates in Cairo (Egypt), including isolates of clonal complex ST10 and clones ST131, ST73, and ST405 in both community and hospital settings.
In Egypt, little is known about the genetic background of Escherichia coli isolates harboring extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL). Five hundred twenty Enterobacteriaceae were prospectively collectedExpand

Emergence and Spread in French Hospitals of Methicillin-Resistant Staphylococcus aureus with Increasing Susceptibility to Gentamicin and Other Antibiotics
ABSTRACT Oxacillin (methicillin) resistance in methicillin-resistantStaphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is associated with an increased incidence of resistance to other antibiotics, which has increasedExpand
