We gave an updated picture (1/1/2017-31/08/2019) of the frequency of carbapenemase producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (CPKP) in surveillance rectal swabs (SRS) and in clinical samples (CS) of patients admitted to a tertiary level hospital, focusing on longitudinal evolution of CPKP detected in SRS and on colistin resistant strains.

Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates (carrying the carbapenemase gene bla) of sequence type 16 caused hospital-acquired bloodstream infection or gut colonization in two ICU patients. We...
In the past several decades, the incidence of Klebsiella pneumoniae harboring resistance mechanisms against multiple antibiotic agents has increased on a global scale. We discuss reasons for ongoing t...
Hospital acquired infections caused by K. pneumoniae are difficult to eradicate since K. pneumoniae carries resistance genes for many antimicrobials, including carbapenems. The study aimed to determin...
Klebsiella pneumoniae is an important emerging pathogen of humans and animals which may lead to major clinical implications including mortality. Moreover the increased use of antibiotics has promoted ...
In the US Carbapenem resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae (Kp) is primarily attributed to the presence of the genes blaKPC-2 and blaKPC-3, which are transmitted via plasmids. Carbapenem-resistant Kp (C...

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...
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 ...

Klebsiella pneumoniae is an important pathogen that frequently causes nosocomial community-acquired and infections, including pneumonia, urinary tract infections, bloodstream infections, p...
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
Gram-negative, non-motile, capsulated, gas-producing rods found widely in nature and associated with urinary and respiratory infections in humans.
Infections with bacteria of the genus KLEBSIELLA.
INFLAMMATION of the PERITONEUM lining the ABDOMINAL CAVITY as the result of infectious, autoimmune, or chemical processes. Primary peritonitis is due to infection of the PERITONEAL CAVITY via hematogenous or lymphatic spread and without intra-abdominal source. Secondary peritonitis arises from the ABDOMINAL CAVITY itself through RUPTURE or ABSCESS of intra-abdominal organs.
A granulomatous disease caused by KLEBSIELLA RHINOSCLEROMATIS infection. Despite its name, this disease is not limited to the nose and NASOPHARYNX but may affect any part of the RESPIRATORY TRACT, sometimes with extension to the lip and the skin.
