We aimed to reassess, through clinical items, populations at risk for extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL-E) carriage at admission to hospital and to assess the risk of further positive clinical culture of ESBL-E among carriers. We performed a 5-month cohort study in a medicine ward of a 500-bed university teaching hospital(More)
Described here are two cases of cerebral aspergillosis successfully treated with voriconazole after the failure of first-line treatment with amphotericin B deoxycholate. In both cases, clinical and radiological cure was achieved within 6 weeks. Voriconazole should be considered as first-line therapy for cerebral aspergillosis.
Prevalence of fosfomycin resistance in E. coli clinical isolates from UTIs remains very low. Our hypothesis was that fosfomycin resistance may be associated with a biological cost. Three groups of strains of E. coli belonging to the B2 phylogenetic group were used: clinical wild-type (WT) isolates, clinical multidrug-resistant isolates and in vitro(More)
