streptococcus agalactiae (group b streptococci) carriage in late pregnancy in kuwait.this study investigated the vaginal colonization rate of streptococcus agalactiae (group b streptococci, gbs) in an antenatal population in a maternity hospital.200414657612
serotype distribution and mother-to-baby transmission rate of streptococcus agalactiae among expectant mothers in kuwait.streptococcus agalactiae, also known as group b streptococcus (gbs), is a formidable pathogen that is commonly responsible for early-onset and late-onset infections with high morbidity and mortality in the neonatal period. since this organism is usually acquired via the mother's birth canal during labor, this study investigated the maternal carriage rate, mother-to-baby transmission rate, and the common gbs serotypes found among expectant mothers and their babies in kuwait.200515702324
isolation of streptococcus agalactiae from cultured silver pomfret, pampus argenteus (euphrasen), in kuwait. 200415139909
etiology and antibiotic susceptibility patterns of community- and hospital-acquired urinary tract infections in a general hospital in kuwait.our purpose was to determine the bacterial profile and prevalence of antibiotic resistance patterns of uropathogens, as well as evaluate the problem with extended-spectrum β-lactamase (esbl) producing isolates, causing urinary tract infections (utis) in al-amiri hospital, kuwait, over a 3-year period.201020881410
molecular investigation of streptococcus agalactiae isolates from environmental samples and fish specimens during a massive fish kill in kuwait bay.this study was undertaken to identify and characterize bacterial isolates obtained simultaneously from dead fish samples during a massive fish kill in kuwait bay and sewage-water samples running into kuwait bay using conventional and molecular techniques. of the 71 bacterial isolates studied; 66 were recovered from 7 different fish species and 5 strains were isolated from sewage samples. the species-specific identity of the isolates was established by phenotypic characteristics and by pcr amplif ...200819205271
spectrum and antibiotic resistance of uropathogens isolated from hospital and community patients with urinary tract infections in two large hospitals in determine the spectrum of microbial etiology and antibiotic resistance pattern of the uropathogens that cause urinary tract infections in 2 large teaching hospitals in kuwait over a period of 1 year.200516220013
antibiotic susceptibility profile of group b streptococcus (streptococcus agalactiae) at the maternity hospital, kuwait.this study was designed to determine the antibiotic susceptibility profile of clinical isolates of group b streptococcus(gbs, streptococcus agalactiae) and to use the information for formulating appropriate intrapartum antibiotic policy for gbs carriage in pregnancy.200515961937
first report of streptococcus agalactiae and lactococcus garvieae from a wild bottlenose dolphin (tursiops truncatus).the isolation and characterization of two bacterial species, streptococcus agalactiae and lactococcus garvieae, previously unreported in wild marine mammals are described from a freshly dead bottlenose dolphin, tursiops truncatus, from kuwait bay, kuwait, in september 2001. conventional and rapid identification systems were used to determine that isolates from muscle and kidney were s. agalactiae and l. garvieae, respectively. the isolates were gram-positive, catalase-negative, oxidase-negative, ...200617092887
bacterial meningitis in the newborn: a kuwaiti experience.forty-five neonates with bacterial meningitis admitted to a regional hospital in kuwait over a 5-year period are reported. the attack rate was 6.7/10,000 live births. listeria monocytogenes was the most common bacteria isolated (31 per cent), followed by streptococcus agalactiae (15 per cent), and escherichia coli (11 per cent). gram negative pathogens constituted 38 per cent of the total. ten patients died (22 per cent) and 10 (28 per cent of the survivors) developed severe neurological sequela ...19902355406
