Intra-abdominal infections represent a large and wide group of diseases which include intra- and retro-peritoneal infections. Some of them could be defined as uncomplicated, where the infectious process is limited to the organ or tissue of origin (appendicitis, diverticulitis, cholecystitis…). Complications occur when the infection spreads to the(More)
We have tested the in-vitro activities of BAY y 3118, a new chlorofluoroquinolone, ciprofloxacin, sparfloxacin, streptomycin, tetracycline and rifampin against 59 strains of Brucella melitensis. BAY y 3118 (MIC90 0.12 mg/L) was twice as active as sparfloxacin and tetracycline (MIC90 0.25 mg/L). The activity of ciprofloxacin, rifampin and streptomycin (MIC90(More)
AIM OF THE STUDY MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry (MS) is becoming a major resource in the Clinical Microbiology laboratory. Results on some groups of microorganisms are still controversial. We have studied the reliability of MALDI-TOF MS for the identification of anaerobic clinical isolates was studied compared to conventional biochemical methods, with rRNA 16S(More)
OBJECTIVE In Spain there are not many updated population studies about salmonellosis, despite being one of the most common etiologies of acute gastroenteritis (AGEs) caused by bacteria in the world. The aim of the study was to know the most relevant epidemiological features of AGEs produced by Salmonella spp. between 2005 and 2014 in Salamanca (Spain). (More)
OBJECTIVE To know the most relevant epidemiological features of Clostridium difficile infection (CDI) between 2005- 2014 in the province of Salamanca (Spain). METHODS Descriptive cross-sectional study carried out through review of the clinical microbiologic records at Complejo Asistencial Universitario de Salamanca. Detection was performed according to(More)
OBJECTIVE AND DESIGN To evaluate the beneficial effects of exogenous NO and an inhibitor of the COX2, and their action levels in a model of SIRS/bacterial translocation (BT) induced by Zymosan A(®). MATERIAL AND METHODS Ninety Wistar rats were submitted to different treatments, and after 12h and 24h they were anaesthetized in order to collect blood,(More)
The antibacterial activity of BAY y 3118, a new chlorofluoroquinolone, was determined against 257 strains of anaerobic bacteria and compared with the activities of ofloxacin, ciprofloxacin, sparfloxacin, imipenem, cefoxitin, clindamycin, chloramphenicol, metronidazole, and ornidazole. Overall, BAY y 3118 was the most active agent tested against the(More)
A study of the 14 focal salmonelloses diagnosed in the Hospital Clínico Universitario from Salamanca during the last years is presented, along with a review of the major series reported in Spain. The most common focal salmonelloses were osteoarticular, representing one third of cases. The most common underlying condition was diabetes mellitus, which(More)
The anaerobic bacteria resistance to antibiotics is increasing, and even has appeared against the most active of those, like metronidazol and carbapenems. This fact forces to make and periodical sensibility tests -at least in the most aggressive and virulent species, in cases that they are isolated from life locations and in the absence of therapeutic(More)
