BackgroundRisks for subsequent multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacteria (MDRGNB) infection and long-term outcome after hospitalization among patients with MDRGNB colonization remain unknown.MethodsThis observational study enrolled 817 patients who were hospitalized in the study hospital in 2009. We defined MDRGNB as a GNB resistant to at least three different antimicrobial classes. Patients were classified into MDRGNB culture-positive (MDRGNB-CP; 125 patients) and culture-negative (MDRGNB-CN… 

High Acquisition Rate of Gram-Negative Multi-Drug Resistant Organism Colonization During Hospitalization: A Perspective from a High Endemic Setting

TLDR
GN-MDRO baseline colonization rate on admission was high and, alarmingly, doubled during hospitalization in the study area, and there was a need for an improved infection control policy including routine surveillance of the GN- MDROs and improved antibiotic stewardship program.

Risk stratification for multidrug-resistant Gram-negative infections in ICU patients.

TLDR
The present review examines how to accurately predict which patients carry a greater risk of colonization or infection on which to base the timely choice of an effective empirical antibiotic treatment regimen and avoid antibiotic overuse.

Gram-negative multidrug-resistant organisms were dominant in neurorehabilitation ward patients in a general hospital in southwest China

TLDR
Gram-negative MRDOs were dominant in rehabilitation ward patients, and long-term use of antibiotics, history of a tracheostomy, and a low albumin level were independent risk factors for the development of MDRO infection in patients in the rehabilitation ward.

Risk Factors of Multidrug-Resistant Bacteria in Lower Respiratory Tract Infections: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis

TLDR
The meta-analysis results suggested that prior antibiotic treatment, inappropriate antibiotic therapy, chronic lung disease, chronic liver disease and cerebral disease, prior MDR and PA infection/colonization, recent hospitalization, longer hospitalization stay, endotracheal tracheostomy and mechanical ventilation, tube feeding, nursing home residence, and higher disease severity score were independent risk factors for MDR bacteria.

High Fecal Carriage of Multidrug Resistant Bacteria in the Community among Children in Northwestern Tanzania

TLDR
There is a need to strengthen antimicrobial stewardship and Infection Prevention and Control programs to prevent the emergence and spread of MDR pathogens in children.

Predicting Multidrug-Resistant Gram-Negative Bacterial Colonization and Associated Infection on Hospital Admission

TLDR
A model was developed to optimize both the decision to initiate antimicrobial therapy and the infection control interventions to mitigate threats from MDR-GNB.

TLDR
This study adds to existing evidence that multidrug resistance per se is not associated with higher mortality when effective antibiotics are used for definitive therapy, however, its association with longer hospitalization justifies the use of control efforts.

Bacteraemia due to multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacilli in cancer patients: risk factors, antibiotic therapy and outcomes.

TLDR
MDRGNB bacteraemia was common among cancer patients, especially in those exposed to antibiotics and urinary catheter, and the most frequent mechanism of resistance was ESBL production.

TLDR
Identification of common coresistance patterns among MDR-GNB isolates may assist in the selection of empirical antimicrobial therapy for patients with a high risk of harboring MDR -GNB at hospital admission.

Screening for resistant gram-negative microorganisms to guide empiric therapy of subsequent infection

TLDR
Colonization surveillance for resistant gram-negative microorganisms is predictive of subsequent infection etiology and can improve empiric antimicrobial treatment adequacy in a critical care setting.

Colonization with multidrug-resistant gram-negative bacteria: prolonged duration and frequent cocolonization.

TLDR
Patient colonization with MDRGNB is prolonged, and a substantial proportion of patients are colonized with multiple MDR GNB species, and multidrug-resistant P. mirabilis may have a survival advantage in the gastrointestinal tract, compared with other MDRGH species.

TLDR
The 18-month risk of MRSA infection among 209 adult patients newly identified as harboring MRSA was determined and patients developed subsequent MRSA infections, which were often severe.
