Emergence and spread of vancomycin resistance among enterococci in Europe
Nowadays, six types of acquired vancomycin resistance in enterococci are known; however, only VanA and to a lesser extent VanB are widely prevalent. Various genes encode acquired vancomycinExpand
Improved Multiplex PCR Strategy for Rapid Assignment of the Four Major Escherichia coli Phylogenetic Groups
ABSTRACT Using data from whole-genome projects, an updated multiplex PCR strategy was developed to assign Escherichia coli isolates rapidly to major phylogenetic groups. This assay accommodatesExpand
Emergence and spread of vancomycin resistance among enterococci in Europe.

Relationship Between Growth and Mycotoxin Production by Fusarium species, Biocides and Environment
Fusarium head blight of cereals has, in recent years, become one of the most important pre-harvest diseases worldwide. This paper examines the in vitro efficacy of fungicides to control FusariumExpand
Post-Harvest Fungal Ecology: Impact of Fungal Growth and Mycotoxin Accumulation in Stored Grain
Grain quality after harvest is influenced by a wide variety of abiotic and biotic factors and has been studied as a stored grain ecosystem. Important factors include grain and contaminant mouldExpand
Comparison of environmental profiles for growth and deoxynivalenol production by Fusarium culmorum and F. graminearum on wheat grain
Aims:  Comparisons were made of the effect of water activity (aw 0·99–0·85), temperature (15 and 25°C) and time (40 days) on growth/production of the trichothecene mycotoxin deoxynivalenol (DON) byExpand
Non-susceptibility trends among Enterobacteriaceae from bacteraemias in the UK and Ireland, 2001-06.
BACKGROUND Enterobacteriaceae are common agents of bacteraemia, with Escherichia coli accounting for 20% of the cases. Reflecting this importance, members of the family constitute 4 of the 12Expand
Rapid Identification of Major Escherichia coli Sequence Types Causing Urinary Tract and Bloodstream Infections
ABSTRACT Escherichia coli sequence types (STs) 69, 73, 95, and 131 are collectively responsible for a large proportion of E. coli urinary tract and bloodstream infections, and they differ markedly inExpand

Effects of control interventions on Clostridium difficile infection in England: an observational study
Summary Background The control of Clostridium difficile infections is an international clinical challenge. The incidence of C difficile in England declined by roughly 80% after 2006, following theExpand
