Semin Respir Crit Care Med 2019; 40: 454-464 DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1693160Antibiotic resistance is recognized as a key determinant of outcome in patients with serious infections influencing empiric antibiotic practices especially for critically ill patients. Within the intensive care unit (ICU), nosocomial infections and increasingly community-onset infections are caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria. Escalating rates of antibiotic resistance adds substantially to the morbidity, mortality, and cost related to infections treated in the ICU. Both gram-positive organisms, such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus an...

CONCLUSIONS: Several antimicrobial agents continue to demonstrate in vitro efficacy against clinical isolates of S. aureus (including MRSA) throughout Wisconsin, including three agents with recently-published susceptibility testing guidelines. However, continued surveillance efforts may be necessary in the Lake Winnebago, Southeast, and Southcentral regions to further assess higher rates of resistance to a number of antimicrobial agents.

Abstract Mastitis caused by multi- or pan-drug resistant bacteria is a growing health concern. A total of 110 milk samples were collected: Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus dysgalactiae, Enterococcus faecalis, and Escherichia coli were present in 54/110 (49.09%), 37/110 (33.63%), 25/110 (22.72%), 7/110 (6.36%), and 50/110 (45.45%) samples, respectively. A total of 20 methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) isolates, 19 Streptococcus sp. isolates, and 15 E. coli isolates were selected, and 100% were positive for (coagulase and hemolysins), streptokinase, and hemolytic activity, respectiv...

Authors: Panchal G, Pandit R, Trailokya A, Sharma A Abstract Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest menace to global health. Deaths from Drug-resistant infections is set to escalate exponentially. Pipeline for new antibacterials is almost empty. The World Health Organization has reinforced its warning that to tackle growing threat of antimicrobial resistance, development of a new antibiotics is seriously lacking. Arbekacin is a novel aminoglycoside primarily used in the treatment of infections caused by resistant Staphylococcus Aureus i.e. Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA). Besides MRSA it als...

This study employs a low-cost, commercially available screen printed electrode modified with an agarose-based hydrogel deposit to monitor bacterial growth using the techniques of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) and differential pulse voltammetry (DPV) giving rise to a new approach to measuring susceptibility. Susceptible and drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus strains were deposited onto agarose gel modified electrodes which contained clinically important antibiotics to establish growth profiles for each bacterial strain and monitor the influence of the antibiotic on bacterial growth. The results show that S....
