Prevalence, characteristics and antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of Clostridioides difficile isolated from hospitals in Iran

ConclusionThis is the first report of the isolation of C. difficile from different governmental hospitals of Iran and indicates that CDI might be an important nosocomial infection in different hospital wards. Moreover, this study provides a comprehensive picture of the MDR phenotype characteristics of C. difficile isolates in Iran.

Tracking progress towards UHC requires measurement of both these dimensions, and a way of trading them off against one another.MethodsWe measured service coverage by a weighted geometric average of four prevention indicators (antenatal care, full immunisation, and screening for breast and cervical cancers) and...

Rising antimicrobial resistance (AMR) is a recognised threat to global health. There is a perception that poor prescribing practices contribute to the problem, although data confirming this are limited. Reliable data on the quality of antimicrobial prescribing in UK hospitals are not available, with hospital drug-purchasing data most often being used ...
