The aim of this study was to investigate the bla gene, the pathogenic potential and antimicrobial resistance in clinical isolates of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae isolated from patients admitted to the University Hospital of Londrina between January 2014 and March 2017.

Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC) is a class A carbapenemase endemic in the United States, China, South America, and Europe but is rarely reported from India. A single report of KPC-9 from K. ...
The increasing prevalence of antibiotic resistant pathogens poses a serious threat to global health. However, less emphasis has been placed to co-relate the gene expression and metabolism of antibioti...
Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) infections are associated with increased rate of treatment failure and death. Several studies have reported isolates with combined hypervirulent and a...
Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) have spread globally through tertiary hospitals. Many CRKP clinical isolates are multi-drug resistant and may become eventually pan-drug resistant (PD...
The mcr-1 gene encodes a phosphoethanolamine transferase that confers resistance to colistin by transferring phosphoethanolamine to lipid A. A 33-kb IncX4 plasmid harboring mcr-1 was detected in both ...

There is an urgent need to control our current national outbreak of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP). The purpose of this study is to eradicate CRKP gastrointestinal carri...
Gram-negative, non-motile, capsulated, gas-producing rods found widely in nature and associated with urinary and respiratory infections in humans.
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.
Gram-negative, capsulated, gas-producing rods found widely in nature. Both motile and non-motile strains exist. The species is closely related to KLEBSIELLA PNEUMONIAE and is frequently associated with nosocomial infections
Infections with bacteria of the genus KLEBSIELLA.
Strains of the genus Enterococcus that are resistant to the antibiotic VANCOMYCIN. The enterococci become resistant by acquiring plasmids carrying genes for VANCOMYCIN RESISTANCE.
Pneumonia (bronchopneumonia, lobar pneumonia and double pneumonia) is inflammation (swelling) of the tissue in one or both of your lungs. It is usually caused by an pneumococcal infection caused by bacteria called Streptococcus pneumoniae. However,...
Bioinformatics is the application of computer software and hardware to the management of biological data to create useful information. Computers are used to gather, store, analyze and integrate biological and genetic information which can then be applied...
