Polish Physicians’ Attitudes Towards Antibiotic Prescription and Antimicrobial Resistance

Antimicrobial resistance has been one of the biggest global current issues in medicine and public health. Overuse and imprudent use of antimicrobial agents are recognized as one of the leading causes of antibiotic resistance. The aim of this study was to analyze the attitudesof Polish physicians practicing at the community level towards antibiotics and antimicrobial resistance. The majority of physicians taking part in the survey believed that Polish people overuse antibiotics (98%). Most

resistance. In this study several commercial pig farms and pigs with different age groups as well as farm workers and samples from environment were examined with the purpose of detecting MRSA prevalence and evaluating antimicrobial resistance. A total of 85 isolated MRSA strains were characterised by conventional microbial and molecular methods. MRSA was found in all farms. MRSA prevalence in different pig age groups and farms varied from none to 79.2% reaching higher values among 3–3.5 (26.6%) and

The strains belonging to this clone demonstrated the ability to conduct a haemolysis process, but were not able to produce gelatinase [17]. 3. Treatment of enterococcal infections and antimicrobial resistance Standard treatment of enterococcal infections involves applying a combination of aminoglycoside with vancomycin or ampicillin [4]. The main problem in the

Patterns of Drug-Resistant Bacteria in a General Hospital, China, 2011–2016

Introduction The emergence and spread of drug-resistant bacteria have always been a public concern. With the increase of resistance to available antimicrobial agents and the emergence of multi-drug resistant bacteria, antimicrobial resistance has caused serious threats to public health in the world (Livermore 2012; Rossolini et al. 2014; Yang et al. 2017). It can cause damage to human health and, at the same time, it can lead to a situation where there is no cure. The research reported that

STAPHYLOCOCCUS EPIDERMIDISAS A CAUSATIVE AGENTOF HEALTHCARE - ASSOCIATED INFECTIONS

Healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial resistance are two of the most important threats in the contemporary medicine, representing a serious burden for the public health system. Previously regarded only as an innocuous commensal microorganism of human skin, S. epidermidis is nowadays seen as an important opportunistic pathogen and the most frequent cause of nosocomial infections. S. epidermidis is the most genetically diverse species within the genus Staphylococcus. Strains

The Prevalence of Exoenzyme S Gene in Multidrug-Sensitive and Multidrug-Resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa Clinical Strains

Pseudomonas aeruginosa rods are one of the most commonly isolated microorganisms from clinical specimens, usually responsible for nosocomial infections. Antibiotic-resistant P. aeruginosa strains may present reduced expression of virulence factors. This fact may be caused by appropriate genome management to adapt to changing conditions of the hospital environment. Virulence factors genes maybe replaced by those crucial to survive, like antimicrobial resistance genes. The aim of this study was

ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE OF BACTERIA A GROWING THREAT FOR ANIMALS AND PUBLIC HEALTH

Typhimurium and less frequently other serovars found in pigs and pig carcasses. The fact that no resistance to carbapenems was found in the tested Salmonella rods, both those isolated from pigs and cattle, as well as those isolated from carcasses of the said animals, can be perceived encouraging. The acquisition of antimicrobial resistance by commensal bacteria colonising animals remains in direct dependence on the intensity of their use. Consequently, this leads to the selective pressure of these

This fact justifies the importance of previously determining antimicrobial resistance patterns before using a LAB strain as a probiotic. Due to their natural origin, LAB isolates from Amazonian fruits could be a safe alternative to be used as probiotics; however, it is
