BACKGROUND Dengue is an emerging public health problem causing serious morbidity and mortality in tropical developing countries. Early, sensitive and specific diagnosis is paramount for clinical decision making. Currently available diagnostic tests are limited in scope and utility. This study highlights applicability of RT-LAMP in dengue diagnosis. (More)
OBJECTIVE The present study was undertaken to detect the prevalence of the blaNDM-1 metallo beta lactamases (MBLs) in the isolates of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which were recovered from various clinical samples from hospitalized patients in a tertiary care centre in Pune, India. METHODS A total of 200 isolates of P. aeruginosa which were obtained from(More)
BACKGROUND Hetero-resistance vancomycin intermediate Staphylococcus aureus (hVISA) is phenotype, which on in-vitro susceptibility test is vancomycin susceptible (VSSA) but has a minority population of vancomycin intermediate (VISA). hVISA is responsible for vancomycin treatment failure. Population Analysis Profile- Area under Curve (PAP-AUC) is a test for(More)
BACKGROUND Enterococci have assumed great clinical importance because of their increasing resistance to various antimicrobial agents. Thus, knowledge about the antibiogram of these multidrug resistant isolates is of utmost importance in formulating an effective antibiotic policy to treat these infections and reducing the morbidity and mortality. Aim of this(More)
A multidrug-resistant clinical isolate of Ralstonia pickettii from a woman was analysed. Modified Hodge test was positive for carbapenemase production. Conjugation experiment revealed the presence of conjugative plasmid of >140 Kb size typed as IncN type. This is the first report of emergence blaVIM-2 in R. pickettii in India.
The genus Raoultella is composed of Gram-negative, aerobic, oxidase-negative, catalase-positive, nonmotile, capsulated rods belonging to the Enterobacteriaceae family (1). Raoultella ornithinolytica is found in aquatic and hospital environments (2). Occurrence of Raoultella in human infections is rare, but it has been reported to cause bloodstream and soft(More)
BACKGROUND Resistance to broad-spectrum beta lactams mediated by extended spectrum beta lactamases (ESBLs) and AmpC beta lactamases (AmpC βLs) enzymes is an increasing problem worldwide. Determination of their prevalence is essential to formulate an effective antibiotic policy and hospital infection control measures. Present study was undertaken to(More)
Objective. To detect genes encoding carbapenem resistance among Enterobacter species in a tertiary care hospital in central India. Methods. Bacterial identification of Enterobacter spp. isolates from various clinical specimens in patients admitted to intensive care units was performed by routine conventional microbial culture and biochemical tests using(More)
OBJECTIVE To detect genes encoding carbapenem resistance in urinary isolates of Escherichia coli recovered from hospitalized patients in tertiary care centre in Pune, India. METHODS From Jan 2012 to Dec 2012, a total of 300 consecutive non-duplicate (one isolate per patient) clinical isolates of Escherichia coli were recovered from urine cultures of(More)
