Coagulase-negative staphylococci are frequently isolated from clinical specimens and they represent the most common cause of bacteraemia in hospitalised patients. Particularly, venous catheter-related bloodstream infections are often due to non- aureus staphylococci. These are opportunistic pathogens in immunocompromised hosts and may behave as reservoirs of antibiotic resistance determinants.1 A 75-year-old woman was admitted to hospital because of diffuse bone pain. A relapse of myeloid… 
Diversity of staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec structures in coagulase-negative staphylococci and relationship to drug resistance.
Results confirm the high prevalence of S. epidermidis SCCmec IVa and the high genetic diversity among MR-CoNS strains and describe the newly identified Staphylococcus pettenkoferi, a species found to be more resistant to meropenem.
Staphylococcus pasteuri infective endocarditis: A case report
Meticillin-heteroresistant Staphylococcus pasteuri from an apheresis platelet product.
Though contaminating staphylococci generally exert b-lactam susceptibility, meticillin resistance should always be excluded to avoid b- lactam failure when treating transfusion-related bacteraemias.
An unusual case of Staphylococcus pasteuri osteomyelitis
The first known case of Staphylococcus pasteuri osteomyelitis caused by machine injection injury is presented and the patient was treated with emergent surgical debridement as well as doxycycline for a soft tissue infection.
Isolation of rare coagulase-negative isolates in immunocompromised patients: Staphylococcus gallinarum, Staphylococcus pettenkoferi and Staphylococcus pasteuri.
Data suggest that rare coagulase-negative staphylococcal infections may be under-diagnosed due to difficulties associated with routine clinical laboratory diagnostic methods.
Effect of subtherapeutic vs. therapeutic administration of macrolides on antimicrobial resistance in Mannheimia haemolytica and enterococci isolated from beef cattle
Injectable macrolide administration increased the proportion of erythromycin resistant enterococci within the population, which was comprised almost exclusively of Enterococcus hirae.
Coagulase-negative staphylococci: update on the molecular epidemiology and clinical presentation, with a focus on Staphylococcus epidermidis and Staphylococcus saprophyticus
Recent research in this area focusing on the molecular methods and epidemiology of S. epidermidis and S. saprophyticus is summarized.
Staphylococcus pasteuri isolates (Spvs) from human atherosclerotic plaques mediate virulence, intracellular resistance and transendothelial invasion of macrophages: A mechanistic paradigm for microbial pathogenicity in atherosclerosis
It is shown that Spvs are found in CE plaques, have the capacity to survive phagocytosis and induce the transmigration of Mφs across an endothelial barrier in a CCL1-CCR8 dependent process, which highlights the significance of carotid vessels as a reservoir for S. pasteuri.
Airborne and Surface-Bound Microbial Contamination in Two Intensive Care Units of a Medical Center in Central Taiwan
The data analysis results suggested a higher value of relative risk among the infected patients in the presence of the pathogens as compared to those in the absence of them, although the evidence of a of correlation for the individual bacterial species between the environmental samples and infected patients was inconclusive.
Molecular epidemiology of coagulase-negative staphylococci in hospitals and in the community
This data indicates that Coagulase-negative staphylococci and in particular Staphylitis epidermidis have emerged as major pathogens primarily causing nosocomial infections in patients with indwelling m ...

The results demonstrate the value of automated ribotyping for identification of coagulase-negative Staphylococcus (CoNS) isolates from human sources and may help to clarify the clinical relevance of CoNS species.
Use of Genotypic Identification by sodA Sequencing in a Prospective Study To Examine the Distribution of Coagulase-Negative Staphylococcus Species among Strains Recovered during Septic Orthopedic Surgery and Evaluate Their Significance
A total of 212 coagulase-negative Staphylococcus strains recovered prospectively during 119 surgeries for proven or suspected bone and joint infection (BJI) were identified by sodA sequencing, finding only S. epidermidis, S. lugdunensis, and S. capitis were found to be infecting organisms.
Spectrum of microbial flora in diabetic foot ulcers.
There was a linear increase in the prevalence of organisms with increase in Wagner's grade, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa among the gram-negative and Staphylococcus aureus among thegram-positive were the predominantly isolated organisms, while Candida was the most predominantly isolated fungus.
Staphylococcus pasteuri sp. nov., isolated from human, animal, and food specimens.
A new novobiocin-susceptible species of the genus Staphylococcus, Staphylococcus pasteuri, is described on the basis of the results of a study of seven strains isolated from human, animal, and food
Has misdiagnosis of appendicitis decreased over time? A population-based analysis.
On a population level, diagnosis of appendicitis has not improved with the availability of advanced diagnostic testing and the frequency of misdiagnosis leading to unnecessary appendectomy has not changed with the introduction of computed tomography, ultrasonography, and laparoscopy.
How do microorganisms reach the stratosphere?
A number of studies have demonstrated that bacteria and fungi are present in the stratosphere. Since the tropopause is generally regarded as a barrier to the upward movement of particles it is
