Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) or carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE) are Gram-negative bacteria that are resistant to the carbapenem class of antibiotics, considered the drugs of last resort for such infections. They are resistant because they produce an enzyme called a carbapenemase that disables the drug molecule. The resistance . Enterococcus faecalis – formerly classified as part of the group D Streptococcus system – is a Gram-positive, commensal bacterium inhabiting the gastrointestinal tracts of humans and other mammals. Like other species in the genus Enterococcus, E. faecalis is found in healthy humans, but can cause life-threatening infections, especially in the nosocomial (hospital) environment, Family: Enterococcaceae.

Antibiotic resistance and resistance transfer in gram-negative bacilli isolated from burns. by Elizabeth Ann Roe Download PDF EPUB FB2

The evolution of antimicrobial resistance in bacteria is a complex and longstanding process that has gathered much attention by outpacing the discovery and development of new antibiotics. Among Gram-negative bacilli, resistance has been progressive and unremitting in Enterobacteriaceae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Acinetobacter baumannii.

According to the National Healthcare Safety Network, the prevalence of multidrug resistance among gram-negative bacilli (GNB) has been increasing. 1 While the exact definitions for multidrug-resistant (MDR) GNB vary, 2 these organisms are especially concerning since they may be susceptible to only a single antibiotic class.

Risk factors for infections with MDR GNB Cited by: 6. The burden of multidrug resistance in Gram-negative bacilli (GNB) now represents a daily issue for the management of antimicrobial therapy in intensive care unit (ICU) patients.

In Enterobacteriaceae, the dramatic increase in the rates of resistance to third-generation cephalosporins mainly results from the spread of plasmid-borne extended-spectrum beta-lactamase Cited by:   Antibiotic resistance profile of identified bacilli.

After identification, the antibiotic susceptibility of all isolates was determined. The results for the antibiotic susceptibility are shown in Table 3 and and4. The seven Gram negative isolates were tested for 19 antibiotics. Many organisms in the rivers had resistance to at least one antibiotic other than ampicillin, and a substantial fraction were able to survive a number of antibiotics.

One gram-negative organism resistant to ciprofloxacin was found in the 3, ampicillin-resistant isolates tested. Antibiotic resistance profile of clinical gram negative bacteria.

A total of gram negative bacteria, including Escherichia coli, Enterobactor spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Klebsiella pneumoniae were collected from Dr.

Essa laboratory and Dr. Ziauddin hospital inin Karachi, Pakistan. Subcommittee of the Ministry of Health™s Antibiotic Resistance Advisory Group. The purpose of the survey was to obtain information on resistance among isolates of Gram-negative bacilli causing significant disease.

The survey was confined to the Enterobacteriaceae, P. aeruginosa and Acinetobacter. Recently Gram-negative bacteria with resistance to commonly used antibiotics, including quinolones, colistins (polymyxins), carbapenems, cephalosporins, and other β-lactam antibiotics, have been isolated from humans with increasing frequency.

Other mechanisms of resistance among gram-negative bacteria include enzymatic inactivation of other antibiotics, alteration of the bacterial target of the antibiotic, reduction in the permeability of bacterial cells to the antibiotic, and efflux pumps that actively remove the Antibiotic resistance and resistance transfer in gram-negative bacilli isolated from burns.

Similar to other Gram-negative pathogens, P. aeruginosa is able to acquire and transfer antibiotic resistance genes (17, 18).

Obviously, increasing antimicrobial resistance rates greatly limit. Therefore, problem of antibiotic resistance (AR) is an ever-increasing menace to mankind (Petri, ).

The cells can also transfer resistant genes such as against gram-negative bacilli. The burden of antimicrobial resistance in Gram-negative bacilli (GNB) is a daily challenge to face for intensive care unit (ICU) physicians.

Indeed, GNB are responsible for 45–70% of ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) [], 20–30% of catheter-related bloodstream infections [], and commonly cause other ICU-acquired sepsis such as surgical site or urinary Cited by: [aelig]ruginosa P14/R.

This is true, but the real wonder is the rise of antibiotic resistance in hospitals, communities, and the environment concomitant with their use.

The extraordinary genetic capacities of microbes have benefitted from man's overuse of antibiotics to exploit every source of resistance Cited by: 1. Introduction. Gram-positive cocci still predominate as a cause of nosocomial- and community-acquired infections.

Enterococci has appeared as the second or third most commonly isolated Cited by: Antibiotics, an international, peer-reviewed Open Access journal.

Dear Colleagues, Gram-negative bacteria possess an intrinsic resistance to many antimicrobials because of the bacterium's outer-membrane barrier, the presence of multidrug efflux transporters, and endogenous antimicrobial inactivation etc. The aim of this study was to investigate the antibiotic resistance profile of 58 Gram negative bacilli strains (GNB): 36 non-fermentative GNB (NGNB), including 19 strains of Acinetobacter spp., 11 of Pseudomonas aeruginosa, 6 of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia and 22 enterobacterial strains (14 strains of KEHSs, 6 belonging to the group Proteus-Providencia and 2 Escherichia coli) isolated Cited by: 4.

Antibiotic resistance has been evaluated among 36 Gram negative and anaerobic bacilli (10 Bacteroides, 11 Prevotella, 7 Porphyromonas and 8 Fusobacterium strains) isolated from clinical cases of caprine and ovine footrot (necrotic pododermatitis).

Bacteria can share genes with each other in a process called horizontal gene transfer. This can occur both between bacteria of the same species and between different species and by several different mechanisms, given the right conditions.

Introduction. One of the most important resistant mechanisms in Gram-negative bacteria is extended spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs). Harbour-related genes on plasmids, increase the risk of resistance transmission among commonly reported hospital infections.

The non-glucose-fermenting Gram-negative bacilli Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter baumannii are increasingly acquiring carbapenem resistance. Given their intrinsic antibiotic resistance, this can cause extremely difficult-to-treat infections.

Introduction: Antibiotic resistance in gram-negative bacilli is an area of increasing impor-tance. This prospective study was performed to survey antibiotic resistance in Escherichia coli (E. coli), Klebsiella spp., Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Acinetobacter spp. over a 1-year period.

Aerobic gram-negative bacilli, including the family of Enterobacteriaceae and non-lactose fermenting bacteria such as Pseudomonas and Acinetobacter species, are major causes of hospital-acquired infections.

The rate of antibiotic resistance among these pathogens has accelerated dramatically in recent years and has reached pandemic scale. It is no longer Cited by:   Of the strains isolated in this study, % were gram-positive bacteria and % were gram-negative bacteria, which are in line with other series, including the Chinese study of strains.
