AIM This study evaluated the incidence and factors responsible for plasmid-mediated extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) infection among patients with diabetic foot ulcer (DFU). SUBJECTS AND METHODS A prospective study was conducted on 162 DFU inpatients treated in a multidisciplinary-based diabetes and endocrinology center at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College of Aligarh Muslim University, Aligarh, India, during the period of December 2008-March 2011. Detailed history and patient's profile…

Plasmid mediated extended spectrum beta-lactamase producing strains of enterobacteriaceae isolated from diabetic foot infections in Egypt
High prevalence of plasmid-mediated ESBLs was detected among DFIs in Egypt and new guidelines should be undertaken in Egypt to limit or prevent the misuse and abuse of antimicrobial agents.

MRSA and ESBL-E have adquired a great clinical relevance in DFIs and the availability of their risk factors is very convenient to choose the empirical treatment in severe forms.
Plasmid mediated extended spectrum
The present was done to identify and characterize the most common plasmid-mediated ESBL genes associated with diabetic foot infections in Egypt and revealed a remarkable high resistance pattern towards different classes of the tested antimicrobial agents.
Antibacterial resistance pattern of aerobic bacteria isolated from patients with diabetic foot ulcers in Egypt
The majority of ESBLs recovered from DFUs, showed resistance to more than one class of antimicrobial agents and hence new guidelines should be addressed in Egypt to rationalize and prevent the misuse and overuse of antimacterial agents.
Emergence of multi drug resistance strains causing diabetic foot infection in Salem, Tamil Nadu, India
The resistant organism was eradicated only by the effective management of this infection; knowledge on the causative agent causing cruel diabetic foot infections will be very useful in selecting the appropriate therapy.
Bio-fabrication of titanium oxide nanoparticles from Ochradenus arabicus to obliterate biofilms of drug-resistant Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from diabetic foot infections
T titanium oxide nanoparticles (TiO 2 -NPs) were fabricated from the leaf extract of Ochradenus arabicus and inhibition of biofilm and related functions was examined against multi-drug-resistant strains of P. aeruginosa and methicillin-resistant S. aureus isolated from foot ulcers.
Microbiology of diabetic foot ulcer with special reference to ESBL infections
The evidence and role of antibiotics in the treatment of chronic diabetic foot wounds are outlined and current practice of antibiotic usage for chronic wounds in the primary care setting described, and the implications of antibiotics usage with regard to antibiotic resistance are considered.
Management of Hospitalized Patients with Diabetic Foot Infections
The comprehensive management of DFIs include not only effective antibiotic therapy but also surgical debridement, pressure offloading, wound care and moisture, maintaining good vascular perfusion, control of edema and pain, correction of metabolic abnormalities such as hyperglycemia, and addressing psychosocial and nutritional issues.
DNA Barcoding on Bacteria and its Application in Infection Management
The developmental stages of DNA barcode research is discussed, the possible application of magnetic- and nanoparticle-related applications in bacterial DNA barcoding is evaluated, and the innovative techniques help in the identification of a number of infectious pathogens, which are present in trace amount.


Clinical and molecular epidemiology of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli as a cause of nosocomial infection or colonization: implications for control.
The epidemiology of ESBL-producing E. coli as a cause of nosocomial infection is complex and previous oxyimino-beta-lactam use, diabetes, and ultimately fatal or nonfatal underlying diseases were independent risk factors for infection or colonization with CTX-M-producing isolates, whereas previous fluoroquinolone use was associated with infection or Colonization with SHV-TEM-producing isolate.
Prevalence and Molecular Epidemiology of CTX-M Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamase-Producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae in Russian Hospitals
This study provides further evidence of the global dissemination of CTX-M type ESBLs and emphasizes the need for their epidemiological monitoring.
Extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae: risk factors for infection and impact of resistance on outcomes.
Epidemic outbreaks of infection with ESBL-producing E. coli and K. pneumoniae should emphasize judicious use of all antibiotics as well as barrier precautions to reduce spread.
Comparison of beta-lactamase genes in clinical and food bacterial isolates in India.
Probably bla genes have not yet disseminated to raw-food vegetation in India, and therefore the occurrence of human disease-causing enteric bacteria on raw vegetables, fruits, meats, and milk products sold in Indian markets is unlikely.
Emergence and dissemination of Enterobacteriaceae with plasmid-mediated CMY-6 and CTX-M-15 beta-lactamases in community in North-India
RAPD typing revealed the presence of blaCMY and blaCTX-M in a wider range of strains of E. coli and K. pneumoniae.
Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamases: a Clinical Update
Extended-spectrum β-lactamases represent an impressive example of the ability of gram-negative bacteria to develop new antibiotic resistance mechanisms in the face of the introduction of new antimicrobial agents.
Bacteriology of Moderate-to-Severe Diabetic Foot Infections and In Vitro Activity of Antimicrobial Agents
Ertapenem and piperacillin-tazobactam were each active against >98% of the enteric gram-negative rods, methicillin-sensitive S. aureus, and anaerobes, and antibiotic susceptibility results can help to inform therapeutic choices.

Bloodstream infection isolates from Latin America were uniformly more resistant to all classes of antimicrobial agents tested than were isolates of E. coli and Klebsiella species from Canada or the United States.
