The molecular epidemiology and the genetic basis of carbapenem resistance was investigated in 185 Acinetobacter baumannii isolates obtained from 13 centers of northern Croatia and Istria during 2009–2010. All isolates were multidrug-resistant, and 35 % (n = 64) were resistant to both imipenem and meropenem. ISAba1-driven overexpression of the intrinsic bla(More)
AIM Meropenem Yearly Susceptibility Test Information Collection (MYSTIC) Program is a longitudinal global surveillance study to monitor in vitro data on microbial susceptibility in centers that prescribe meropenem. Results of the six years period (2002-2007) for the antimicrobial efficacy of meropenem compared to other broad-spectrum agents against(More)
Carbapenemases involved in acquired carbapenem resistance in Enterobacteriaceae belong to Ambler class A serin β-lactamases, class B metallo-β-lactamases (MBL) or class D OXA-48-like β-lactamases. The aim of the present study was to analyse the molecular epidemiology and the mechanisms and routes of spread of class B and class D carbapenemases in Croatia.(More)
Sažetak. Rezistencija na cefalosporine proširenog spektra u Enterobacter spp. nastaje zbog indukcije ili derepresije AmpC-β-laktamaze, produkcije β-laktamaza proširenog spektra (ESBL) ili karbapenemaza. Cilj istraživanja bio je utvrditi mehanizme rezistencije na β-laktamske antibiotike na kolekciji od 58 izolata prikupljenih metodom slučajnog odabira u tri(More)
