Emergence of extensively drug-resistant international clone IC-6 Acinetobacter baumannii carrying blaOXA-72 and blaCTX-M-115 in the Brazilian Amazon region

ConclusionThis study highlights the importance of surveillance of XDR A. baumannii strains, even outside of densely populated cosmopolitan regions, to reveal the epidemiology of pandemic lineages, stressing their threat to public health.

ConclusionCongenital piriform sinus fistula is an important cause of deep neck abscess in children. The presence of purulent gas-liquid equilibrium or air shadow in cervical-enhanced computed tomography or ultrasound suggests a high possibility of the presence of an internal fistula, and endoscopic low temperature ablation can be done at the same time as the diagnostic endoscopy.ResumoIntroduçãoA fístula congênita do seio piriforme é uma doença relativamente rara na prática clínica; a maioria se manifesta na infância; entretanto, os médicos geralmente t&ec...

ConclusionsPillar suture combined with tonsillectomy may reduce postoperative bleeding incidence despite increasing pillar edema in pediatric tonsillectomy. Postoperative pain-relief, palatal hematoma, palatal discomfort sensation, site infection, and velopharyngeal insufficiency were not significantly altered compared to tonsillectomy alone. However, further studies are needed to corroborate the results of this study.ResumoIntroduçãoDiversas técnicas cirúrgicas têm sido utilizadas na tonsilectomia no intuito de reduzir complicações.ObjetivosAvaliar os efeitos da sutura dos p...

The efficacy of these drugs deterred the development of other control measures, such as vaccines, which are currently getting more attention due to the increased concern about antimicrobial resistance. Glässer’s disease is caused by Glaesserella (Haemophilus) parasuis and affects pork production around the world. Balance between colonization and immunity seems ...

This study presents a combined dielectrophoresis (DEP) - Raman Spectroscopy (RS) method to obtain direct, real-time measurements of the susceptibility of a suspension of planktonic bacteria without labelling or other time-consuming and intrusive sample preparation processes. Using an in-house constructed DEP-Raman device, we demonstrated the susceptibility of Escherichia coli MG1655 towards the second-generation fluoroquinolone antibiotic ciprofloxacin (CP) after only 1 h of treatment, by monitoring spectral changes in the chemical fingerprint of bacteria related to the mode of action of the drug. Spectral variance ...

Joshi, Debajyoti Bora, Debadatta Dhar (Chanda), Amitabha BhattacharjeeAbstractA wide range of intrinsic Acinetobacter-derived cephalosporinases (ADC) along with other carbapenemases has now been detected in Acinetobacter baumannii leaving clinicians with few treatment options. The present study reports the spread of ADC-30 co-producing KPC-2 along with other β-lactamases among carbapenem resistant A. baumanni...
