Escherichia coli ST131, an Intriguing Clonal Group
SUMMARY In 2008, a previously unknown Escherichia coli clonal group, sequence type 131 (ST131), was identified on three continents. Today, ST131 is the predominant E. coli lineage amongExpand

Control of the duration of urinary catheterization: impact on catheter-associated urinary tract infection.
Catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI) is one of the most common types of nosocomial infection. Reducing the duration of catheterization may be a key intervention in CAUTI prevention. WeExpand

10-Fold increase (2006-11) in the rate of healthy subjects with extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli faecal carriage in a Parisian check-up centre.
OBJECTIVES In 2006, 0.6% of healthy subjects living in the Paris area had extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli in their gut. To assess the evolution of this rate, a studyExpand

What happens in hospitals does not stay in hospitals: antibiotic-resistant bacteria in hospital wastewater systems.
Hospitals are hotspots for antimicrobial-resistant bacteria (ARB) and play a major role in both their emergence and spread. Large numbers of these ARB will be ejected from hospitals via wastewaterExpand
