Multifaceted mechanisms of colistin resistance revealed by genomic analysis of multidrug-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates from individual patients before and after colistin treatment.

Polymyxins (i.e. polymyxin B and colistin) are used as a last-line therapy to combat multidrug-resistant (MDR) Klebsiella pneumoniae. Worryingly, polymyxin resistance in K. pneumoniae is increasingly ...

Emergence of Polymyxin Resistance in Clinical Klebsiella pneumoniae Through Diverse Genetic Adaptations: A Genomic, Retrospective Cohort Study.

Polymyxins are antimicrobials of last resort for the treatment of carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, but resistance in 5% to >40% isolates has been reported. We conducted a genomic survey of cli...

Polymyxin resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae: multifaceted mechanisms utilized in the presence and absence of the plasmid-encoded phosphoethanolamine transferase gene mcr-1.

Until plasmid-mediated mcr-1 was discovered, it was believed that polymyxin resistance in Gram-negative bacteria was mainly mediated by the chromosomally-encoded EptA and ArnT, which modify lipid A wi...

Hypermucoviscous Polymyxin Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae from Kolkata, India: Genomic and Phenotypic Analysis.

Here we report the draft genome sequence of a colistin resistant hypermucoviscous Klebsiella pneumoniae isolated from a hospitalised patient with acute kidney injury in Kolkata, India.

Molecular typing of a large nosocomial outbreak of Klebsiella pneumoniae Carbapenemase-producing bacteria in the biggest third level hospital of Quito, Ecuador.

Klebsiella pneumoniae is an opportunistic pathogen associated with nosocomial infections worldwide. Klebsiella pneumoniae producing carbapenemase (KPC) phenotype has a reduced susceptibility to the fi...

Carbapenem and Quinolone Resistance in Klebsiella Pneumoniae

Klebsiella pneumoniae is an important pathogen that frequently causes nosocomial community-acquired and infections, including pneumonia, urinary tract infections, bloodstream infections, p...

Selective Digestive Decontamination in Carriers of Carbapenem-Resistant Klebsiella Pneumoniae

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...

Epidemiology of Klebsiella Pneumoniae in China

Klebsiella pneumoniae is one of the most common pathogens causing both community-onset and nosocomial infection. More worse, the emergency of Carbapenem-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CR...

Epidemiological Characteristics and Treatment Protocol for Carbapenem-Resistant Klebsiella Pneumoniae in China

Klebsiella pneumoniae is one of the most common pathogens causing nosocomial infection. Recently, the emergency of Carbapenem-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) had cause the clinical ...

Epidemiological, Clinical, Microbiological and Outcome Description of Patients With Klebsiella sp Meningitis

Klebsiella pneumoniae is implicated in the occurrence of severe pneumonia. Most Klebsiella pneumoniae infections are associated with care and occur in patients with compromised immune defe...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Gram-negative, non-motile, capsulated, gas-producing rods found widely in nature and associated with urinary and respiratory infections in humans.

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

A mixture of polymyxins B1 and B2, obtained from Bacillus polymyxa strains. They are basic polypeptides of about eight amino acids and have cationic detergent action on cell membranes. Polymyxin B is used for infections with gram-negative organisms, but may be neurotoxic and nephrotoxic.

Infections with bacteria of the genus KLEBSIELLA.

A type of strength-building exercise program that requires the body muscle to exert a force against some form of resistance, such as weight, stretch bands, water, or immovable objects. Resistance exercise is a combination of static and dynamic contractions involving shortening and lengthening of skeletal muscles.
