detection of kpc carbapenem-hydrolyzing enzymes in enterobacter spp. from brooklyn, new york.enterobacter spp. are rarely resistant to carbapenems. in this report, one enterobacter sp. isolate possessed bla(kpc-3) and two possessed bla(kpc-2). for all three strains, the imipenem mics were dependent on the inoculum and testing method; two were reported by the clinical laboratories to be carbapenem susceptible. improved detection methods will be necessary to identify these enzymes.200515673765

a comparison of the bacteria found on the hands of 'homemakers' and neonatal intensive care unit nurses.this prevalence study was conducted to compare the counts, types and antimicrobial resistance profiles of bacterial flora on the hands of individuals in the community to that of nurses at a nearby university teaching hospital, with an intense hand hygiene regimen. hand cultures were obtained from 204 individuals during a home visit and 119 nurses in two neonatal intensive care units (nicus). the mean total log counts of organisms were 5.73 and 5.24 for the homemakers [defined as the person (usua ...200312919763
gram-negative bacilli associated with catheter-associated and non-catheter-associated bloodstream infections and hand carriage by healthcare workers in neonatal intensive care units.bloodstream infections caused by gram-negative bacilli are a substantial cause of morbidity and mortality in infants in neonatal intensive care units. this study describes the species of gram-negative bacilli causing bloodstream infections in two neonatal intensive care units, compares characteristics of catheter-related and non-catheter-related bloodstream infections, and compares species and antibiotic resistance patterns of these organisms with those isolated from the hands of nurses working ...200515982435
activity of eravacycline against enterobacteriaceae and acinetobacter baumannii, including multidrug-resistant isolates, from new york city.eravacycline demonstrated in vitro activity against a contemporary collection of more than 4,000 gram-negative pathogens from new york city hospitals, with mic50/mic90 values, respectively, for escherichia coli of 0.12/0.5 μg/ml, klebsiella pneumoniae of 0.25/1 μg/ml, enterobacter aerogenes of 0.25/1 μg/ml, enterobacter cloacae 0.5/1 μg/ml, and acinetobacter baumannii of 0.5/1 μg/ml. activity was retained against multidrug-resistant isolates, including those expressing kpc and oxa carbapenemases ...201525534744
