Clonal spread of CTX-M-15-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae in a Croatian hospital.
TLDR
In insights into the molecular epidemiology of the spread of ESBLs in K. pneumoniae involved in an outbreak at a Croatian hospital, the hospital antibiotic policy resulted in ceftriaxone being the most heavily prescribed third-generation cephalosporin, which might be expected to select for cefotaximases such as CTX-M-15.

Seroepidemiology of cytomegalovirus infections in Croatia
TLDR
Logistic regression showed that older age and being on hemodialysis were significant predictors of CMV seropositivity, and infections with CMV are widespread in the Croatian population. Expand
Efficacy of Three Different Lasers on Eradication of Enterococcus faecalis and Candida albicans Biofilms in Root Canal System.
TLDR
Er,Cr:YSGG laser was the most efficient tool in eradication of E. faecalis and C. albicans biofilms in root canal disinfection and eradicated significantly more microorganisms in comparison with Er:YAG laser. Expand
The role of cytomegalovirus infection in the pathogenesis of periodontal diseases.
TLDR
Experimental evidence show the influence and interrelatedness of genomic, epigenetic, proteomic and metabolic factors in the pathogenesis of periodontal disease. Expand
Effect of inoculum size on the antibacterial activity of cefpirome and cefepime against Klebsiella pneumoniae strains producing SHV extended-spectrum beta-lactamases.
TLDR
It is found that most SHV-producing klebsiellae have MICs of cefpirome that imply susceptibility at the moderate inoculum size, in spite of the fact that, according to the NCCLS, all ESBL producers should be considered resistant to all cephalosporins, independent of MIC values. Expand
Emergence of CTX-M group 1 extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae strains in the community.
TLDR
The study demonstrated community-associated emergence of CTX-M 1 beta-lactamase-producing K. pneumoniae strains in Zagreb region during the last five years and demonstrated the transferability of cefotaxime resistance. Expand
Nursing Home as a Reservoir of Carbapenem-Resistant Acinetobacter baumannii.
TLDR
All A. baumannii strains from a nursing home in Zagreb and to genotype the strains were found to be resistant to ceftazidime, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, piperacillin/tazobactam, imipenem, meropenem, and ciprofloxacin. Expand
Postantibiotic and Post-Beta-Lactamase Inhibitor Effect of Carbapenems Combined with EDTA against Pseudomonas aeruginosa Strains Producing VIM-Metallo Beta-Lactamases
TLDR
EDTA combined with carbapenems produced a significant PLIE on VIM-MBL-positive P. aeruginosa strains, which does not have any clinical relevance so far since metal chelators such as EDTA are not used as therapeutic agents due to their toxicity. Expand
[Diagnostic approach and therapy for cytomegalovirus (CMV) infection following allogeneic stem cell transplantation].
TLDR
The problems associated with CMV infection in recipients of allogeneic stem cells with special emphasis on diagnostic procedures and treatment or prophylaxis of CMV disease are shown. Expand
FALSE POSITIVE PHENOTYPIC DETECTION OF METALLO-BETA-LACTAMASES IN ACINETOBACTER BAUMANNII
TLDR
High sensitivity but low specificity of phenotypic methods in the detection of MBLs is showed in this study. Expand
