The prevalence of metallo-β-lactamase (MBL) production among 104 clinical isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa from northwest of Iran was investigated by phenotypic and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods. Thirty-nine (37.50%) of isolates were MBL positive by double-disk synergy test. Results of PCR revealed that 18 (17.31%) and 6 (5.77%) imipenem(More)
PURPOSE The antimicrobial activity of doripenem in comparison of imipenem, meropenem and ertapenem among Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from burn and Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients were determined. METHODS Metallo-β-lactamase (MBL) genes in imipenem non susceptible P. aeruginosa isolates were detected using PCR method. The in vitro susceptibilities of(More)
We examined the prevalence of various carbapenem resistance mechanisms in clinical isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii collected from hospitalized burn and non-burn patients. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed for 43 burn and 32 non-burn isolates. Carbapenem resistance genes were identified and repetitive extragenic palindromic PCR (REP-PCR)(More)
BACKGROUND Mycoplasma pneumoniae is an organism that reportedly has a strong relationship to asthma. However, asthma severity and location of airway obstruction have not been compared between asthmatic patients with and without evidence for remote mycoplasma infection. OBJECTIVES The aim of this research was to study the relationship between previous M.(More)
