Summary of "Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus: leading bacterial pathogens of health-care associated infections and bacteremia at older age."

Bacteremia and healthcare-associated infections (HAI) continue to rise in industrialized countries, in line with population ageing and increased healthcare needs. Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus are the most common pathogens causing HAI and bacteremia. Areas covered: This review discusses risk factors in the healthcare setting contributing to the rise in bacteremia and other invasive bacterial HAI in older populations in general, and attributed to E. coli and S. aureus. Treatment of infections is becoming increasingly difficult due to emerging antimicrobial resistance. Prophylactic vaccines may be the solution to lowering the burden of serious infections in the elderly. Expert commentary: E. coli and S. aureus vaccines routinely administered to older adults and to people undergoing pre-scheduled procedures with high infection risks could prevent a significant proportion of severe disease, and could potentially also limit the further emergence of antimicrobial resistance.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Strains of ESCHERICHIA COLI that are a subgroup of SHIGA-TOXIGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI. They cause non-bloody and bloody DIARRHEA; HEMOLYTIC UREMIC SYNDROME; and hemorrhagic COLITIS. An important member of this subgroup is ESCHERICHIA COLI O157-H7.

Strains of Escherichia coli that possess virulence traits which allow them to invade, colonize, and induce disease in tissues outside of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. They are a cause of URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS (UROPATHOGENIC ESCHERICHIA COLI); neonatal MENINGITIS; SEPSIS; PNEUMONIA; and SURGICAL WOUND INFECTION.

A strain of Staphylococcus aureus that is non-susceptible to the action of METHICILLIN. The mechanism of resistance usually involves modification of normal or the presence of acquired PENICILLIN BINDING PROTEINS.

An enterohemorrhagic Escherichia coli of the O subfamily that can cause severe FOODBORNE DISEASE. The H4 serotype strain produces SHIGA TOXINS and has been linked to human disease outbreaks, including some cases of HEMOLYTIC-UREMIC SYNDROME, resulting from contamination of foods by feces containing E. coli O104.

A species of gram-negative, rod-shaped bacteria belonging to the K serogroup of ESCHERICHIA COLI. It lives as a harmless inhabitant of the human LARGE INTESTINE and is widely used in medical and GENETIC RESEARCH.
