In the 1990s, the Enterococcus emerged as an important pathogen because of increasing prevalence and acquired resistances to glycopeptides and other agents. The seriousness of this problem can vary markedly worldwide and within nations; the SENTRY Antimicrobial Surveillance Program documents these differences. Over 8,000 enterococci were processed in the program (1997-2000) and the Enterococcus faecalis (EF; 4,034 strains) and Enterococcus faecium (EFM; 1,123 strains) isolates are tabulated… CONTINUE READING
