multiyear, multinational survey of the incidence and global distribution of metallo-β-lactamase-producing enterobacteriaceae and pseudomonas aeruginosa.metallo-β-lactamases (mbls) hydrolyze all classes of β-lactams except monobactams and are not inhibited by classic serine β-lactamase inhibitors. gram-negative pathogens isolated from patient infections were collected from 202 medical centers in 40 countries as part of a global surveillance study from 2012 to 2014. carbapenem-nonsusceptible enterobacteriaceae and pseudomonas aeruginosa were characterized for bla genes encoding vim, imp, ndm, spm, and gim variants using pcr and sequencing. a tota ...201626643349
an analysis of hospital-acquired bacteraemia in intensive care unit patients in a university hospital in analysis of hospital-acquired bacteraemia among icu patients was carried out over a two-year period in order to determine the incidence, associated mortality rate and susceptibility pattern of causative pathogens. there was a high incidence of bacteraemia, occurring in 127 (18.4%) of 692 patients. mortality attributable to nosocomial bacteraemia was 52% of the total 79 deaths from all causes. the highest mortality rate (58.5%) occurred in patients with fungal infections, whilst death from gra ...199910462639
