  • resistant
  • These bacteria have built-in abilities to find new ways to be resistant and can pass along genetic materials that allow other bacteria to become drug-resistant as well. (cdc.gov)
  • CDC Guidance for Control of Infections with Carbapenem-resistant or Carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in Acute Care Facilities contains specific recommendations for prevention and control of a specific emerging drug-resistant gram-negative. (cdc.gov)
  • The percentage of gram-negatives that are resistant to drugs is increasing. (cdc.gov)
  • Patterns of ciprofloxacin-resistant gram-negative bacteria colonization in nursing home residents. (nih.gov)
  • We evaluated the prevalence of colonization with all gram-negative bacilli (GNB) and with ciprofloxacin-resistant GNB among nursing home residents with and without indwelling devices. (nih.gov)
  • Ciprofloxacin-resistant gram-negative bacilli (GNB) colonization and functional status. (nih.gov)
  • These bacteria are mainly resistant because of their double membrane that conjointly impairs antibiotic accumulation and extrudes these molecules when entered. (frontiersin.org)
  • The synthetic peptide was effective in lab experiments against antibiotic-resistant Gram-negative bacteria , which cause a variety of difficult-to-treat, potentially lethal infections such as pneumonia and sepsis. (medicalxpress.com)
  • Works against Gram-negative bacteria at all phases of growth, including dormant cells that are prone to become resistant. (medicalxpress.com)
  • Gram-positive bacteria include those that cause anthrax, tuberculosis, strep throat and such treatment-resistant infections as Staphylococcus aureus . (medicalxpress.com)
  • Compared with Gram-positive bacteria, Gram-negative bacteria are more resistant against antibodies because of their impenetrable cell wall. (diffen.com)
  • And what we've seen over the past decade is these Gram-negative agents becoming very rapidly more and more resistant to all of the agents that we have available to treat them. (diffen.com)
  • Historically
  • Historically , the kingdom Monera was divided into four divisions based on gram-staining: Firmacutes (+), Gracillicutes (−), Mollicutes (0) and Mendocutes (var. (wikipedia.org)
  • plasmid
  • This chapter concerns the processing and synthesis of plasmid DNA during its transmission between conjugating gram-negative bacteria, focusing on conjugation systems specified by plasmids isolated in or transferred experimentally to enterobacteria. (springer.com)
  • cause
  • Additionally, the outer leaflet of this membrane comprises a complex lipopolysaccharide (LPS) whose lipid A component can cause a toxic reaction when these bacteria are lysed by immune cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • compound
  • Kim HJ, Graham DW, DiSpirito AA et al (2004) Methanobactin, a copper-acquisition compound from methane-oxidizing bacteria. (springer.com)
  • include
  • Symptoms of infection by this bacteria include cramping, watery diarrhea that can give way to bloody stool, nausea, gas and fever. (reference.com)
