the changing pattern of antibiotic susceptibilities of bacteroides fragilis in kuwait.the susceptibility of 340 distinct strains of bacteroides fragilis isolated during 1981 to 1988, to eight antimicrobial agents was determined. these included isolates from infected hospitalized patients (127), infected out-patients (89), faecal isolates from uninfected patients hospitalized for greater than 10 days (48) and from normal subjects in the community (76). all strains were susceptible to metronidazole with a mic of 1 mg/l. the least effective antibiotics were ampicillin, fusidic acid, ...19892599994
surveillance and trends of antimicrobial resistance among clinical isolates of anaerobes in kuwait hospitals from 2002 to 2007.the susceptibility trends for all anaerobes processed by the anaerobe reference laboratory against various antibiotics were determined by using data for 2557 isolates referred by all government hospitals in kuwait from 2002 to 2007. mic were determined for the following anti-anaerobic antibiotics: amoxicillin-clavulanic acid, clindamycin, imipenem, meropenem, metronidazole, penicillin, piperacillin, piperacillin-tazobactam and vancomycin (for gram-positive anaerobes only), using e-test method. t ...201019406247
antimicrobial resistance among anaerobes isolated from clinical specimens in kuwait hospitals: comparative analysis of 11-year data.our objective was to compare the antimicrobial resistance trends among clinically relevant anaerobes against 9 different antibiotics over two periods, 2008-2012 and 2002-2007. antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed by determining the mics using e test method. the interpretation of results was according to the breakpoints recommended by the clinical laboratory and standard institute (clsi) and european committee on antimicrobial susceptibility testing (eucast). a total of 2240 clinica ...201525193745
molecular characterization of imipenem-resistant, cfia-positive bacteroides fragilis isolates from the usa, hungary and kuwait.fifteen bacteroides fragilis isolates from the usa, hungary and kuwait were examined for carbapenem resistance, for carbapenemase activity and, with the use of various pcr-based methods and nucleotide sequencing, for cfia genes and activating insertion sequence (is) elements. all the b. fragilis isolates were cfia-positive, 10 of the cfia genes being upregulated by is elements that are already known. of these 10, one was of a novel type (designated is943) and two further ones (is614b and is614c) ...200415096551
