VIM-1, VIM-2, and GES-5 Carbapenemases Among Pseudomonas aeruginosa Isolates at a Tertiary Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey.
TLDR
Investigation of carbapenemase production in carbAPenem-resistant P. aeruginosa isolates recovered from clinical specimens in a tertiary hospital in Turkey found the presence of VIM-1, V IM-2, and GES-5 type carbapanemases in P.aeruginose isolates was demonstrated for the first time in this study.
Evaluation of the Carbapenem Inactivation Method for Detection of Carbapenemase-Producing Gram-Negative Bacteria in Comparison with the RAPIDEC CARBA NP.
TLDR
Although RAPIDEC CARBA NP is a more rapid and reliable method, the CIM test may represent a useful tool for microbiology laboratories due to its simplicity and availability at any laboratory with low cost.
Distribution of Clinical Isolates at Species Level and Their Antibiotic Susceptibilities in Intensive Care Units Patients
TLDR
The microorganisms which were isolated from various clinical specimens of the patients in intensive care units for a year and antibiotic susceptibility of the microorganisms were determined.
HCV Genotype Distribution of Patients with Chronic Hepatitis C in Istanbul
TLDR
It was observed that genotype 5 was detected in different years from patients of Syrian origin, albeit at a low rate, and it is important to monitor these rare genotypes since some of them are dominant in surrounding countries.
Corynebacterium propinquum bronchopneumonia in a child with ataxia telangiectasia.
TLDR
A case of bronchopneumonia caused by Corynebacterium propinquum is presented, which should be recognized as a potential pathogen and included in the etiologic diagnostic algorithm, particularly in patients with immunosuppressive conditions.
[Evaluation of Mascia Brunelli rapid antigen test in the diagnosis of group A streptococcal pharyngitis].
TLDR
The selection of rapid antigen tests with high sensitivity in the diagnosis of GAS pharyngitis will contribute to the prevention of resistance development by appropriate use of antibiotics as well as early diagnosis and appropriate treatment, however, confirmation of negative rapid antigen test results by culture is very important in terms of false diagnosis and prevention of incomplete treatment.
Trend in Antibiotic Resistance of Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamase-Producing Escherichia Coli and Klebsiella Pneumoniae Bloodstream Infections
TLDR
Monitoring ESBL rates and the antibiotic susceptibility of E. coli and K. pneumoniae strains of bloodstream infections is of the utmost importance in guiding empiric antibiotic therapies and patient management.
Clinical effect of discordance in empirical treatment of cases with urinary tract infection accompanied by bacteremia.
TLDR
It was considered that ceftriaxone can still be a viable option in the EAT of UTI, which is accompanied by bacteremia without severe sepsis and septic shock findings, and EAT discordance may not have a negative effect on the duration of hospital stay and survival rates in neither total cases nor ESBL positive ones.
