The majority of studies that link antibiotic usage and resistance focus on simple associations between the resistance against a specific antibiotic and the use of that specific antibiotic. However, the relationship between antibiotic use and resistance is more complex. Here we evaluate selection and co-selection by assessing which antibiotics, including those mainly prescribed for respiratory tract infections, are associated with increased resistance to various antibiotics among Escherichia coli isolated from urinary samples.

Antimicrobial residues in milk have been discussed as a possible selector for Enterobacteriaceae that produce extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBL) in dairy herds. Such residues are found in waste mi...
The identification and differentiation of antibiotic resistant bacteria by MALDI-TOF-MS profiling remains a challenge due to the difficulty in detecting unique protein biomarkers associated with this ...
The emergence and dissemination of colistin resistance among Gram-negative bacteria is a global problem. We initiated a surveillance of colistin-resistant and -susceptible Escherichia coli in raw meat...
In this review, we focus on the dual face of antibiotic therapy in the critically ill that must harmonize the need for early, appropriate and adequate antibiotic therapy in the individual-infected pat...
There are substantial limitations in our understanding of the distribution of antibiotic resistance (AMR) in humans and livestock in developing countries. Here, we present the results of an epidemiolo...
Stool samples will be collected from two groups of neutropenic patients in the case that a therapy with either meropenem or piperacillin/tazobactam is needed due to a suspected infection. ...
Antibiotics are medicines used to avoid and treat bacterial infections. Antibiotic resistance is increasing to dangerous level globally.
The purpose of this study is to review patients with E. coli infections at UPMC from January 1, 2004 to December 31, 2005 to determine if these infections have arisen in the community rath...
This proposed study aims to document the risk factors for quinolone resistance in bloodstream isolates of E. coli. Additionally, the adequacy of empiric antibiotic therapy for E. coli bloo...
This is a single center, open-label phase1b clinical trial. The study will evaluate the safety and immunogenicity of an experimental recombinant staphylococcus aureus vaccine with differen...
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.
Adverse of favorable selection bias exhibited by insurers or enrollees resulting in disproportionate enrollment of certain groups of people.
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.
Asthma COPD Cystic Fibrosis Pneumonia Pulmonary Medicine Respiratory Respiratory tract infections (RTIs) are any infection of the sinuses, throat, airways or lungs. They're usually caused by viruses, but they can also ...
