Its organisms are distributed worldwide with some being saprophytes and others being plant and animal parasites. Many species are of considerable economic importance due to their pathogenic effects on agriculture and livestock.Enterobacteriaceae Infections: Infections with bacteria of the family ENTEROBACTERIACEAE.Acinetobacter baumannii: A species of gram-negative, aerobic bacteria, commonly found in the clinical laboratory, and frequently resistant to common antibiotics.beta-Lactam Resistance: Nonsusceptibility of bacteria to the action of the beta-lactam antibiotics. Mechanisms responsible for beta-lactam resistance may be degradation of antibiotics by BETA-LACTAMASES, failure of antibiotics to penetrate, or low-affinity binding of antibiotics to targets.Klebsiella pneumoniae: Gram-negative, non-motile, capsulated, gas-producing rods found widely in nature and associated with urinary and respiratory infections in humans.Klebsiella Infections: Infections with bacteria of the genus KLEBSIELLA.Acinetobacter Infections: Infections with bacteria of the genus ACINETOBACTER.beta-Lactams: Four-membered cyclic AMIDES, best known for the PENICILLINS based on a bicyclo-thiazolidine, as well as the CEPHALOSPORINS based on a bicyclo-thiazine, and including monocyclic MONOBACTAMS.

The number of loci used for the profile depends on the ALLELE FREQUENCY in the population.Polymerase Chain Reaction: In vitro method for producing large amounts of specific DNA or RNA fragments of defined length and sequence from small amounts of short oligonucleotide flanking sequences (primers). The essential steps include thermal denaturation of the double-stranded target molecules, annealing of the primers to their complementary sequences, and extension of the annealed primers by enzymatic synthesis with DNA polymerase.

  • A total of 77 patients with confirmed/suspected CRE infection (bacteremia, hospital-acquired/ventilator-associated bacterial pneumonia, complicated intra-abdominal infection, complicated urinary tract infection/acute pyelonephritis) were randomized, and 47 with confirmed CRE infection formed the primary analysis population (microbiologic-CRE-modified intent-to-treat, mCRE-MITT).

  • The results of this study may help in tracing and controlling NDM-1-producing K. pneumoniae outbreak by applying effective infection control measures especially in the chest ward of this hospital. (sciepub.com)
  • Although diverse mechanisms were identified, production of OXA-72 carbapenemase was the most common mechanism of carbapenem resistance in A. baumannii from this Taiwanese hospital. (nih.gov)
  • In DARWIN, we will undertake a never-previously-performed pan-European examination of the fate of key AMR organisms and genetic determinants in U rban W ater S ystems (UWS) resulting from discharged hospital and community wastes, including transmission mechanisms in different stages of sewer catchments and receiving waters.

  • O objetivo do presente trabalho foi avaliar a produção de enzimas carbapenemases do tipo OXA e MβLs, em 36 amostras multirresistentes de A. baumannii , previamente triadas, provenientes de 8 hospitais brasileiros, durante 2004/2008. (usp.br)
  • Four of the eight clusters of OXA-type carbapenemases were identified in A. baumannii , including clusters OXA-23, OXA-24, OXA-51, and OXA-58 ( 22 ). (asm.org)
  • Due to such discrepancies in the phenotypic results, further detection for the presence of carbapenemases was performed using multiplex real-time PCR assays. (ukzn.ac.za)

Reports of its dissemination are increasing worldwide, but they still have distinct geographic niches, which we will now review. (futurelearn.com)
