Acinetobacter baumannii meningitis and ventriculitis are difficult issues, due to the low diffusion of antibiotics in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and bacterial multidrug resistance. The presence of ...
Automated systems Vitek 2, BD Phoenix, MicroScan WalkAway and gradient diffusion assays Etest and MIC Test Strip were compared against broth microdilution for susceptibility testing of tigecycline aga...
Multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (A. baumannii) has become one of the greatest threats worldwide to the therapeutic management of infections. Our previous research confirmed an in vitro syn...
Nosocomial infections caused by multidrug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii have emerged as a serious problem in healthcare settings worldwide.
Acinetobacter baumannii is an aerobic and Gram-negative bacterial pathogen with high morbidity and mortality. It remains a serious public health problem arising from its multidrug-resistant and extens...
The present study was designed to study the impact of empirical treatment with colistin empirical monotherapy and combined treatment with tigecycline and vancomycin on mortality of bactere...
The investigators aimed to confirm the utility of the synergy test results (E-tesT) in vitro to predict the efficacy and safety of colistin-rifampin combination and colistin monotherapy in...
Acinetobacter baumannii is an opportunist pathogen that has become increasingly important over recent years as a cause of nosocomial infections. Ventilator-associated pneumonia, central li...

This study purposed to examine the adequate range of therapeutic concentration for Korean people by observing curative effects, side effects, blood concentration, etc. in treating CRAB-inf...
A species of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria, commonly found in the clinical laboratory, and frequently resistant to common antibiotics.
Tuberculosis resistant to chemotherapy with two or more ANTITUBERCULAR AGENTS, including at least ISONIAZID and RIFAMPICIN. The problem of resistance is particularly troublesome in tuberculous OPPORTUNISTIC INFECTIONS associated with HIV INFECTIONS. It requires the use of second line drugs which are more toxic than the first line regimens. TB with isolates that have developed further resistance to at least three of the six classes of second line drugs is defined as EXTENSIVELY DRUG-RESISTANT TUBERCULOSIS.
Strains of the genus Enterococcus that are resistant to the antibiotic VANCOMYCIN. The enterococci become resistant by acquiring plasmids carrying genes for VANCOMYCIN RESISTANCE.
A species of gram-negative, aerobic BACTERIA. It is a commensal and pathogen only of humans, and can be carried asymptomatically in the NASOPHARYNX. When found in cerebrospinal fluid it is the causative agent of cerebrospinal meningitis (MENINGITIS, MENINGOCOCCAL). It is also found in venereal discharges and blood. There are at least 13 serogroups based on antigenic differences in the capsular polysaccharides; the ones causing most meningitis infections being A, B, C, Y, and W-135. Each serogroup can be further classified by serotype, serosubtype, and immunotype.
Inflammation of the coverings of the brain and/or spinal cord, which consist of the PIA MATER; ARACHNOID; and DURA MATER. Infections (viral, bacterial, and fungal) are the most common causes of this condition, but subarachnoid hemorrhage (HEMORRHAGES, SUBARACHNOID), chemical irritation (chemical MENINGITIS), granulomatous conditions, neoplastic conditions (CARCINOMATOUS MENINGITIS), and other inflammatory conditions may produce this syndrome.
