ConclusionThe AMK resistance rate in M. abscessus clinical isolates in this study was low (2.6%). The A1408 G mutation in rrs and overexpression of WhiB7 and Tap were the predominant mechanisms of AMK resistance in M. abscessus.

ConclusionIn summary, our results show that farms are an important reservoir of colistin-resistant E.coli, added to other additional genes, such as blaESBL. The transfer of manure from animals to soil and irrigation water might be spreading a mix of multiple resistances, posing a worrying threat to human health.Graphical abstract

AbstractAntimicrobial resistance (AMR) has emerged as an obstacle in the supple administration of antimicrobial agents to critical diarrheal patients. Most diarrheal pathogens have developed resistance against the major classes of antibiotics commonly used for assuaging diarrheal symptoms. Antimicrobial resistance develops when pathogens acquire antimicrobial resistance genes (ARGs) through genetic recombination from commensals and pathogens. These are the constituents of the complex microbiota in all ecological niches. The recombination events may occur in the environment or in the gut. Containment of AMR can be achieved ...

We report a case of an infected chylothorax occurring in a post-cardiac surgery patient caused bySerratia marcescens. Once considered a harmless saprophyte,Serratia marcescens is now recognized as an important opportunistic pathogen causing healthcare-associated infection with a propensity for antimicrobial resistance.

Publication date: Available online 11 October 2019Source: Social Science &MedicineAuthor(s): Snorre Sylvester Frid-Nielsen, Olivier Rubin, Erik BaekkeskovAbstractThis paper investigates the genealogy of social science research into antimicrobial resistance (AMR) by piecing together the bibliometric characteristics of this branch of research. Drawing on the Web of Science as the primary database, the analysis shows that while academic interest in AMR has increased substantially over the last few years, social science research continues to constitute a negligible share of total academic contributions. More in-depth netwo...

Purpose of review Helicobacter pylori eradication has become more challenging over the past decade due to increasing antimicrobial resistance, especially to clarithromycin and levofloxacin. We identified 508 recent publications on H. pylori treatment (published between January 2018 and June 2019), focusing on the most highly clinically relevant for this review. Recent findings Declining H. pylori eradication rates with clarithromycin triple therapy have led to most guidelines recommending 14 days bismuth-based quadruple therapy or concomitant therapy as the best initial empiric regimen. Substituting amoxicillin for te...
