high prevalence and molecular characterization of extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing proteus mirabilis strains in southern croatia.the aim of this study was to determine the prevalence and antibiotic resistance rates of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (esbl)-producing proteus mirabilis strains isolated from inpatients at the split university hospital (southern croatia) during a survey performed between 2005 and 2008. a total of 2152 consecutive isolates of p. mirabilis were isolated. the prevalence was 0.5 % in 2005 and increased significantly to 20.9 % by 2008. strains were most frequently isolated from urine (36.5 %) and br ...201020558587
antimicrobial susceptibility and beta-lactamase production of selected gram-negative bacilli from two croatian hospitals: mystic study results.the meropenem yearly susceptibility test information collection (mystic) programme is a global, longitudinal resistance surveillance network that monitors the activity of meropenem and compares its activity with other broadspectrum antimicrobial agents. we now report the antimicrobial efficacy of meropenem compared to other broad-spectrum agents within the selective gram-negative pathogen groups from two croatian hospitals investigated between 2002-2007. a total of 1510 gram-negative pathogens w ...201020566417
emergence of proteus mirabilis isolates producing tem-52 extended-spectrum beta-lactamases in increased frequency of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (esbl)-positive proteus mirabilis isolates was observed recently in the clinical hospital center split in croatia. the aim of this study was the molecular characterization of esbls in p. mirabilis isolates from this hospital.201020551637
