Whole genome sequence of blaNDM and blaKPC co-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae isolate KSH203 with capsular serotype K25 belonging to ST11 from China

ConclusionIn this study, we illustrate the whole genome sequence of high biofilm-forming capacity, hypermucoviscous K. pneumoniae isolate KSH203 with capsular serotype K25 belonging to ST11 isolated from a patient in China, which carried a large number of antimicrobial resistance genes and virulence-associated genes. Future studies are needed to be aware of dissemination of this type of strain among environmental, animal and human isolates.

In conclusion, the ePlex BCID-GP Panel compares favorably to SOC and targeted molecular methods for the identification of 20 Gram-positive pathogens and four antimicrobial resistance genes in positive blood culture bottles. This panel detects a broad range of pathogens and mixed infections with yeast and Gram-negative organisms from the same positive blood culture bottle.

Sexually transmitted infections (STIs) by Mycoplasma genitalium are a major problem worldwide, especially given their marked and rapid propensity for developing antimicrobial resistance. Since very few treatment options exist, clinicians face an important challenge in the management of the infection. In this scenario, little is known regarding the transmission dynamics of M. genitalium and the epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance. This mgpB-based molecular typing study, conducted among 54 asymptomatically infected individuals prospectively recruited from an STI screening service, reveals two distinct epidemiological cl...
