Watkin, Tony WorthingtonSummaryIncreased public awareness of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a key component of effective antimicrobial stewardship strategies. Educational theatre combined with an expert panel was used to engage the public about AMR through delivery of a play entitled “The drugs don’t work”. Audience knowledge and unders...
ConclusionsHospital pharmacists are actively involved in AMS activities despite the lack of established AMS team in most tertiary hospitals. However, lack of training and personnel are major barrier to their involvement in ASP.
In conclusion, imipenem and amikacin show good in vitro susceptibility rates against the IAI-ETP-NS-non-CPE isolates. The hepatobiliary ETP-NS-non-CPE displayed lower cefepime MICs than those cultured from the peritoneal space. Additionally, a significant fraction of IAI-ETP-NS-non-CP Enterobacter isolates exhibited ciprofloxacin MIC
ConclusionsWe detected a novel plasmid carrying blaIMP-6, and revealed the origin of this plasmid. Toxin-antitoxin system acquisition could enable pE196_IMP6 maintenance persistently through successions, even without selection pressure by the clinical usage of antimicrobials, generating broad dissemination and longer carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae colonisation duration in patients.
[Daily News] MISUSE of antibiotics has raised the alarm of Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in the country and across the world, the Government Chief Pharmacist, Daudi Msasi has warned.
ConclusionsThe partial ineffectiveness of incubators ’ disinfection procedures is responsible for persistence of NRCS-A inside a NICU, and the passive hand contamination of caregivers could be involved in the inter-patient transmission ofS. capitis.
Authors: Bader MS, Loeb M, Leto D, Brooks AA Abstract Urinary tract infections (UTIs) caused by antibiotic- resistant Gram-negative bacteria are a growing concern due to limited treatment options. Knowledge of the common uropathogens in addition to local susceptibility patterns is essential in determining appropriate empiric antibiotic therapy of UTIs. The recommended first-line empiric antibiotic therapy for acute uncomplicated bacterial cystitis in otherwise healthy adult nonpregnant females is a 5-day course of nitrofurantion, a 3-g single dose of fosfomycin tromethamine, or a 5-day course of pevmecillinam. High...
C-CAMP, an initiative of the Dept of Biotechnology, Ministry of Science and Technology, and the prominent public private partnership organization in the Netherland, have decided to build and nurture innovations that address the global AMR threat.
ConclusionsThe diverse variety of antibiotic resistance genes and the high antibiotic resistance rates to last-resort antibiotics such as carbapenems and colistin, is indicative of a highly adaptable strain. This emphasizes the importance of implementation of infection controls measures, continued monitoring of antibiotic resistance and prudent use of antibiotics to prevent further selection of resistant strains and the emergence of pan-resistant clones.
ConclusionThe study highlights the importance of regular surveillance programs, an efficient infection control program, strict adherence to antiseptic measures and use of a rational antibiotic policy for the early diagnosis and better management of CRBSI.
