ctx-m-15 extended-spectrum beta-lactamases in enterobacteriaceae in the intensive care unit of tlemcen hospital, algeria.the aim of this study was to detect extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (esbl) in enterobacteriaceae isolates in the intensive care unit (icu) of tlemcen hospital in north-western algeria. antimicrobial susceptibility testing, molecular typing, characterization of esbl-encoding genes and the genetic environment, conjugation experiments and plasmid analysis were carried out. in all, 28 enterobacteriaceae isolates were isolated from specimens recovered from patients in the icu and 2 from surfaces of ...201222768702
molecular and epidemiological characterization of enterobacterial multidrug-resistant strains in tlemcen hospital (algeria) (2008-2010).seventy-one isolates of enterobacteriaceae (17 escherichia coli, 50 klebsiella pneumoniae, and 4 enterobacter cloacae) producing extended-spectrum-β-lactamases (esbls) were collected between april 2008 and march 2010 in an intensive care unit and surgical ward of tlemcen hospital (west of algeria). sequencing identified the bla(ctx-m-15) determinant in 69 isolates and bla(ctx-m-3) in 2 isolates. none of the studied strains produced the class d carbapenemase oxa-48. repetitive extragenic palindro ...201323301522
[evaluation of mixed biofilm formation between candida albicans and a variety of bacterial species isolated from peripheral catheters at tlemcen chu. first study in algeria].mixed-species biofilms constitute a reservoir of infection for a group of bacteria and yeasts that coexist on the same support. peripheral venous catheters make up a good surface for the attachment of microorganisms that promote biofilm formation and this requires complex strategies for antimicrobial treatments.201525957712
