imipenem resistance in aerobic gram-negative bacteria.a prospective study was undertaken to observe the emergence of resistance to imipenem, if any, among aerobic gram-negative bacteria. a total of 736 isolates were tested during 1994-95 and less than 1% of them were resistant to imipenem, whereas the next year ('95-'96) the rate increased to 11 of the 903 isolates tested. the resistant isolates during '94-'95 were all stenotrophomonas maltophilia whereas the spectrum of resistant bacterial species increased in '95-'96 to include pseudomonas aerugi ...19989603633
emergence of new sequence type oxa-48 carbapenemase-producing enterobacteriaceae in kuwait.the aim of this study was to investigate the infections due to oxa-48 carbapenemase-producing bacteria in tertiary hospitals in kuwait (september 2011 to april 2013) and to determine the sequence types (sts) of the corresponding isolates. eleven oxa-48 carbapenemase-producing enterobacteriaceae isolates were recovered from patients treated in nine different hospitals in kuwait. susceptibility testing to eighteen antibiotics was done using the e-test. pcr assays were performed for the detection o ...201525551428
