Antimicrobial susceptibility profiles of bacteria causing urinary tract infections in Mexico: Single-centre experience with 10 years of results

ConclusionsThese results provide additional evidence in relation to the role of different bacterial species as aetiological agents of UTI as well as antimicrobial susceptibility information that will help to guide the selection of antimicrobial treatment for UTIs and the prevalence of ESBL-producing strains over a 10-year period in a Mexican centre.

While the burden of invasive GAS infections is elusive to assess in the MENA region, the GAS prevalence ranged from 2.5% to up 42.4% in pharyngitis patients and from 2.4% to up 35.4% in healthy ca...

In conclusion, we demonstrated that the selective boosting of lung innate immunity is a conceptually advantageous approach for improving the effectiveness of antibiotic treatment and fighting antibiotic-resistant bacteria. Introduction Pneumonia constitutes a major cause of death, morbidity and health resource use worldwide. The main causative agents identified in adult patients hospitalized for community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) are viruses (in 27–30% of cases, the most common being rhinovirus, influenza and coronavirus) and bacteria (14–23% of cases, with a marked predominance of Streptococcus pneumonia...
