While being a cause of healthcare-associated infections, Acinetobacter baumannii possesses considerable potential to survive on inanimate hospital surfaces under hostile conditions (e.g. disinfection or desiccation).
This article was published in the following journal.

Bacterium Acinetobacter baumannii is an emergent pathogen associated with nosocomial infections, which can be also found in natural waters. The impact of ecological factors on A. baumannii is insuffic...
Acinetobacter baumannii is a hospital-associated pathogen of growing importance and is a paradigm for endemic hospital contamination. Desiccation tolerance has been implicated as an important characte...
This chapter describes protocols for determining A. baumannii isolates' overall levels of sensitivity to heavy metals; copper is used as a model heavy metal. Measurements of the ability of strains to ...
Survival of the Acinetobacter baumannii inside host requires different micronutrients such as iron, but their bioavailability is limited because of nutritional immunity created by host. A. baumannii h...
The genomes of Acinetobacter baumannii tell us stories about horizontal gene transfer (HGT) events that steadily drive the evolution of this nosocomial pathogen toward multidrug resistance. Natural tr...
The purpose of the present study is to evaluate the effects of immune function on prognositic outcome in critical ill patients with Acinetobacter baumannii infection.
This is a 2-part study, with Part A being the randomized, controlled portion of the study in patients with ABC (Acinetobacter Baumannii-calcoaceticus Complex) hospital-acquired bacterial p...
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...
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...
Any liquid or solid preparation made specifically for the growth, storage, or transport of microorganisms or other types of cells. The variety of media that exist allow for the culturing of specific microorganisms and cell types, such as differential media, selective media, test media, and defined media. Solid media consist of liquid media that have been solidified with an agent such as AGAR or GELATIN.
An extraction method that separates analytes using a solid phase and a liquid phase. It is used for preparative sample cleanup before analysis by CHROMATOGRAPHY and other analytical methods.
The action by which the surface of a liquid where it contacts a solid is elevated or depressed, because of the relative attraction of the molecules of the liquid for each other and for those of the solid. (McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
A phenomenon in which the surface of a liquid where it contacts a solid is elevated or depressed, because of the relative attraction of the molecules of the liquid for each other and for those of the solid. (from McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 4th ed)
Fractionation of a vaporized sample as a consequence of partition between a mobile gaseous phase and a stationary phase held in a column. Two types are gas-solid chromatography, where the fixed phase is a solid, and gas-liquid, in which the stationary phase is a nonvolatile liquid supported on an inert solid matrix.
Health care (or healthcare) is the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease, illness, injury, and other physical and mental impairments in humans. Health care is delivered by practitioners in medicine, chiropractic, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, a...
