BACKGROUND Klebsiella pneumoniae is an important pathogenic bacterium, frequently isolated from nosocomial samples, that exhibits wide antimicrobial resistance profiles, including third generation cephalosporins (3GC), aminoglycosides and quinolones. The resistance to 3GC is mainly due to the synthesis of extended spectrum beta lactamases (ESBL), encoded by(More)
INTRODUCTION Extended-spectrum-β-lactamases (ESBL) are plasmid-encoded enzymes that confer resistance to multiple antimicrobials. ESBL-producing enterobacteria that cause bacteremia limit therapeutic options and increase mortality. OBJECTIVE To perform a clinical and molecular description of bacteremia caused by ESBL-producing enterobacteria. METHOD We(More)
The resistance of Acinetobacter baumannii to ss-lactam antibiotics is mainly due to the synthesis of ss-lactamases. From a clinical point of view, this bacteria and others, grouped under the acronym SPACE (S: Serratia, P: Pseudomonas, A: Acinetobacter, C: Citrobacter, E: Enterobacter) are essentially Amp-C ss-lactamases producers. There is no local(More)
Streptococcus pneumoniae infections constitute a public health problem. In our country there is scarce information regarding isolates from bacteraemic episodes in adult population. The antibiotic susceptibility, serotypes and clonal relationship of 56 isolates of S. pneumoniae from adult patients with bacteraemic infections in Concepcion-Talcahuano, Bio-Bio(More)
BACKGROUND A progressive frequency of resistance to fluoroquinolones is observed among Gram-negative bacilli. AIM To investigate the mechanism of resistance to fluoroquinolones mediated by mutations affecting gyrA and gyrB genes in strains of Gram negative bacüli isolated from CMean hospitals. MATERIAL AND METHOD Minimal inhibitory concentration of(More)
