The results indicate the importance of bacterial surveillance studies and show a marked decrease of methicillin resistance from 69% in 2005 to 44.6% in 2014 was observed for Staphylococcus aureus. Expand
Epidemiology and antimicrobial susceptibility profiles of Gram-negative bacteria causing urinary tract infections in the Asia-Pacific region: 2009-2010 results from the Study for Monitoring
The lowered CLSI interpretive breakpoints for piperacillin-tazobactam, carbapenems, and some cephalosporins in 2011-2012 for Enterobacteriaceae resulted in an approximate 5% drop in susceptibility rates for each drug, with the exception of imipenem for which the susceptibility rate dropped from 99.4% according to 2010 criteria to 91.2%" according to 2011 criteria.

Serotype distribution and antimicrobial resistance patterns of Streptococcus pneumoniae isolated from children in China younger than 5 years.
This study examined the epidemiology, antibiotic susceptibility, and serotype distribution of Streptococcus pneumoniae associated with invasive and noninvasive pneumococcal disease in children in China and found that children from Wuhan and Nanjing showed the highest prevalence of penicillin resistance.

Interestingly, 12 clonally related E. cloacae isolates possessed a novel blaVEB-type beta-lactamase, blaVeB-3, which is the first report of a VEB-1-like ESBL in China and the firstReport of the simultaneous presence of the V EB-1 and CTX-M-3- like ESBLs in an isolate. Expand
Antimicrobial susceptibility profiles of aerobic and facultative Gram-negative bacilli isolated from patients with intra-abdominal infections in the Asia-Pacific region according to currently
OBJECTIVES The Study for Monitoring Antimicrobial Resistance Trends (SMART) was intended to reveal the evolving profiles of antimicrobial resistance among Gram-negative pathogens causingExpand
High prevalence of CTX-M β-lactamases in faecal Escherichia coli strains from healthy humans in Fuzhou, China
Investigation of the prevalence and genetic environments of blaCTX-M among faecal Escherichia coli obtained from healthy persons in a region of China reveals the wide dissemination of CTX-m ESBL-producing E. coli in the gut flora of healthy individuals in China. Expand
Plasmid-Mediated 16S rRNA Methylases in Aminoglycoside-Resistant Enterobacteriaceae Isolates in Shanghai, China
High-level resistance to aminoglycosides produced by 16S rRNA methylases in Enterobacteriaceae isolates was investigated and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis patterns indicated that armA and rmtB have spread horizontally and clonally. Expand
Further Spread of blaNDM-5 in Enterobacteriaceae via IncX3 Plasmids in Shanghai, China
Investigation of the genetic background of sequences flanking the blaNDM-5 gene showed that all four isolates shared the same genetic content, which indicates that IncX3 plasmids may play an important role in potentiating the spread of bla NDM. Expand
Surveillance of antimicrobial susceptibility of aerobic and facultative Gram-negative bacilli isolated from patients with intra-abdominal infections in China: the 2002-2009 Study for Monitoring
Enterobacteriaceae were the major pathogens causing IAIs, and carbapenems retained the highest susceptibility rates over the 8-year study period, and third- and fourth-generation cephalosporins, fluoroquinolones and SAM may not be ideal choices for empirical therapy of IAIs in China. Expand
Phylogenetic Groups and Pathogenicity Island Markers in Fecal Escherichia coli Isolates from Asymptomatic Humans in China
ABSTRACT The study of phylogenetic groups and pathogenicity island (PAI) markers in commensal Escherichia coli strains from asymptomatic Chinese people showed that group A strains are the most commonExpand
