Contamination of sink drains with carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in intensive care units: a concern but don't worry so much!

Sink drain contamination with extended-spectrum-beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBLE) in intensive care units: strong correlation to the ESBLE colonization pressure in patients but not same species.

Sink drains (SD) of six intensive care units (ICUs) were sampled for screening contamination with extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBLE). A high prevalence (59.4%) of SD...

Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae digestive carriage at hospital readmission and the role of antibiotic exposure.

Colonization by carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) may persist for several months after hospital discharge, especially in patients with altered microbiota.

Activity of imipenem/relebactam against carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae with high colistin resistance.

Imipenem/relebactam, an investigational β-lactam/β-lactamase inhibitor combination for treatment of Gram-negative infections, and comparators including ceftazidime/avibactam, piperacillin/tazobactam...

Discovery of niclosamide and its O-alkylamino-tethered derivatives as potent antibacterial agents against carbapenemase-producing and/or colistin resistant Enterobacteriaceae isolates.

Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) represents the most worrisome evolution of the antibiotic resistance crisis, which is almost resistant to most of available antibiotics. This situation...

Impact of Specific Antimicrobials and MIC Values on the Outcome of Bloodstream Infections Due to ESBL- or Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in Solid Organ Transplantation: an Observational Multinational Study.

Main objective: to observationally assess the efficacy and safety of different antimicrobials in BSI due to ESBL or carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in SOT. Secondary objectives...

Prevalence of ESBL and CPE in French Nursing Homes

CARBEHPAD is a multicentric randomized prevalence study aiming to assess the frequency of Enterobacteriaceae (ESLB) and carbapenemase producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) carriage in Pays de...

Transmission of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae

The aim of this research project is to investigate the transmission of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae on both, the level of bacterial strains and mobile genetic elements, and to determi...

Clinical Validation of the Molecular-Based GenePOC Carba Assay for the Detection and Differentiation of Carbapenemase Genes in Rectal Swab Samples.

The primary purpose of this clinical investigation is to establish the performance of the GenePOC Carba assay on the revogene. This will be achieved by comparing the test to a conventional...

Effectiveness of Fecal Flora Alteration for Eradication of Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae Colonization

Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) are bacteria carried in the gastrointestinal tract that are resistant to carbapenems, antibiotics of last resort. CPE infections result in ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Strains of Enterobacteriaceae that are resistant to CARBAPENEMS, primarily due to the acquisition of carbapenemase (BETA-LACTAMASE) genes.

A genus of gram-negative bacteria in the family Eubacteriaceae. Species are homoacetogenic, having the ability to use CARBON DIOXIDE as an electron sink, and to reduce it producing acetate as a typical fermentation product.

Infections with bacteria of the family ENTEROBACTERIACEAE.

Hospital units providing continuous surveillance and care to acutely ill infants and children. Neonates are excluded since INTENSIVE CARE UNITS, NEONATAL is available.

The exposure to potentially harmful factors such as trace heavy metals, chemicals, radiation, or toxins due to FOOD CONTAMINATION including DRINKING WATER contamination.
