Iatrogenic postoperative spondylodiscitis attributed to Burkholderia cepacia infection in an immunocompetent patient
CONCLUSION: Rarely, B. cepacia may be the offending organism resulting in a postoperative lumbar PS.PMID:33948309 | PMC:PMC8088530 | DOI:10.25259/SNI_518_2020
In this study, we investigated the molecular profiles of different bacterial isolates retrieved from various types of VA grafts. We collected clinical isolates from hemodialysis patients with VAIs in our institution for the period between 2013 and 2018. We identified the bacterial isolates using standard biochemical procedures; we used a polymerase chain reaction for coagulase‐nega tive staphylococci (CoNS) andBurkholderia cepacia complex (BCC) species identification. The antibiotic resistance and molecular profile were analyzed using the disk diffusion method and multilocus sequence typing, respectively. We studied 150 ...

This study contributes to understanding of shared and species-specific evolutionary patterns of B. cenocepacia and B. multivorans evolving in the same CF lung environment.
We describe a case of an otherwise healthy, community-dwelling man who presented with subacute cavitary lung disease, the causative organism of which turned out to be Burkholderia cepacia complex. Our report is accompanied by a review of the literature, which identified an additional eleven cases in the same category. We analyze all of the available cases for the emergence of any identifiable patterns or peculiarities. PMID: 32959626 [PubMed - in process]

Bacterial whole-genome sequencing (WGS) provides clinical and public health laboratories an unprecedented level of information on species identification, antimicrobial resistance, and epidemiological typing. However, multiple barriers to widespread adoption still exist. Here, we describe bacterial WGS using the Illumina iSeq 100 instrument to overcome some of these barriers. Using an in-house, high quality single nucleotide polymorphism (hqSNP) analysis pipeline and the BIOM ÉRIEUX EPISEQ CS whole-genome Multilocus Sequence Typing (wgMLST) program, we validated the sequencing of Acinetobacter baumannii, Burkholderia...
In conclusion, the statistical approach was significantly increased the PHA production using waste glycerol as the sole carbon source.
Centurion Labs is voluntarily recalling, as a precautionary measure, 1 lot of Ninjacof (Lot# 200N1601) and 1 lot of Ninjacof A (Lot# 201NA1601) manufactured by Vilvet (Dania Beach, FL) and distributed by Centurion Labs to the retail level due to potential contamination with Burkholderia cepacia. Centurion was notified by the FDA regarding the potential contamination as they discovered this product may have been manufactured in a Pharmatech, FDA registered facility, in Davie, FL. that was found to have a product that contained B. cepacia.
Stenotrophomonas maltophilia,Burkholderia cepacia complex,Elizabethkingia spp.,Chryseobacterium spp.,Achromobacter spp., andAlcaligenes spp. are less ‐common non–lactose‐fermenting bacteria that have emerged as important opportunistic pathogens. Patients at the highest risk for these infections include the immunocompromised, those with cystic fibrosis, and the critically ill. These opportunistic pathogens are frequently drug resistant throu gh the expression of β‐lactamases, multidrug efflux pumps, aminoglycoside‐modifying enzymes, and target site alterations discussed in detail throughout this review.
