Dear Editor, Acute infectious diarrhoea continues to be a significant cause of morbidity and mortality in children in low income countries. Among bacterial isolates, Shigella spp and Salmonella spp are known to contribute to the high burden of this illness in children. Recent literature survey reveals a sharp declining of prevalence of S. Typhi, while(More)
Antimicrobial resistance among hypervirulent Klebsiella pneumoniae is increasingly reported. Here, we report the draft genome sequence of a hypervirulent K. pneumoniae strain isolated from a neonate with sepsis belonging to novel sequence type 2318 (ST2318).
Shigellosis represents a major burden of disease in developing countries. A low infectious dose allows the disease to be spread effectively. Although shigellosis is mostly a self-limiting disease, antibiotics are recommended to reduce deaths, disease symptoms and organism-shedding time. However, in India, antimicrobial resistance among the genus Shigella is(More)
Here we report the whole-genome shotgun sequence of six methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) showing reduced susceptibility to both vancomycin and teicoplanin. The typical Indian community-acquired MRSA (CA-MRSA) clone ST772-MRSA-V-t657 was the most common genotype (3/6; 50%), followed by ST672-MRSA-IV (2/6; 33%) and ST22-MRSA-IV (1/6; 17%).(More)
OBJECTIVES Carbapenemase-producing Aeromonas spp. are of great concern in healthcare settings and are also known to acquire clinically relevant resistance genes. In this study, carbapenem-non-susceptible Aeromonas isolates were characterised for their molecular mechanisms of resistance. METHODS Among 180 Aeromonas isolates, 10 carbapenem-non-susceptible(More)
Typhoid is one of the leading causes of mortality in developing countries. Here, we report the draft genome sequences of four Salmonella enterica serovar Typhi strains isolated from bloodstream infections in a tertiary care hospital. The sequence data indicate genomes of ~4.5 Mb for all isolates, with one plasmid in each.
Klebsiella pneumoniae is a nosocomial pathogen with clinical importance due to its increasing resistance to carbapenems and colistin. Here, we report the genome sequences of eight colistin-resistant K. pneumoniae strains which might help in understanding the molecular mechanism of the species. The sequence data indicate genomes of ~5.2 to 5.4 Mb, along with(More)
Resistance to colistin is a major threat that limits therapeutic choices for treating carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae infections. Herein, we report the draft genome sequences of two colistin-resistant K. pneumoniae isolates (BA41763 and B6753). The sequence data indicate that BA41763 and B6753 contain genomes of ~5.9 and 5.7 Mb in size with(More)
