The purpose of this communication is to report the occurrence of early-onsetPseudomonas aeruginosa sepsis andYersinia enterocolitica neonatal infection. This case serves as a reminder of the changing spectrum of neonatal septicaemia. 

Pseudomonas aeruginosa Early-Onset Neonatal Sepsis: Could Maternal Healthcare Occupation Be a Risk Factor?

TLDR
It is proposed that maternal healthcare occupation could predispose to gastrointestinal/genital colonization with this potential pathogen, P. aeruginosa, in a term infant with no identifiable risk factor.

Changes in the Incidence and Spectrum of Neonatal Septicemia during a Fifteen‐year Period

TLDR
The spectrum of causative organisms has changed towards more Gram‐positive organisms and fewer Gram‐negative organisms and in the initial antibiotic treatment an aminoglycoside and ampicillin derivate will still be needed to give full coverage.

TLDR
It appears that environmental strains may be in the evolutionary process of becoming adapted to humans, and in the present series sporadic isolations over a 4-year period, mainly from ambulatory patients, suggest an occult reservoir in the community serviced by The Mount Sinai Hospital.

Serum Resistance of Yersinia enterocolitica Expressed in Absence of Other Virulence Markers

Serum resistance of Yersinia enterocolitica after growth at 37 and 25°C appears to be specific for serogroup O:3 and appears to be expressed even in the absence of other phenotypic

A simple adult-mouse test for tissue invasiveness in Yersinia enterocolitica strains of low experimental virulence.

TLDR
A simple mouse-virulence test is presented to monitor the virulence of the human-pathogenic strains isolated outside the USA which belong to serogroups O:3, O:9 and O:5,27 and it is observed that, after oral administration to the mouse, the Vwa-positive strains of these serog groups produce a discrete systemic infection while the VWA-negative strains do not.

Changing blood culture isolates in a referral neonatal intensive care unit.

TLDR
An analysis was made of all cases of bacteraemia that had occurred in the referral neonatal intensive care unit at Hammersmith Hospital during the years 1976--79, where group B beta-haemolytic streptococcus was the organism most often isolated early, while Gram-negative bacteria predominated among later isolates.

Evaluation of virulence factor testing and characteristics of pathogenicity in Yersinia enterocolitica

TLDR
The virulence of 10 strains of Yersinia enterocolitica containing 42- to 44-megadalton plasmids was compared in mice and guinea pigs and it was found that adult mice were more responsive than guinea pig to the Sereny-like conjunctivitis test.

Emergence of resistance during therapy with the newer β-lactam antibiotics: role of inducible β-lactamases and implications for the future

TLDR
Only through a careful assessment of the relative advantages and disadvantages of these new beta-lactam antibiotics can their appropriate place in chemotherapy and chemoprophylaxis be identified.
