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

-associated infections. Staphylococcus epidermidis is mainly responsible for bloodstream infections and other biomedical device-related infections. Hospital strains of Staphylococcus epidermidis form protective biofilm and are characterized by their resistance to various antibiotics.

DRUG RESISTANCE IN THE GENUS ENTEROCOCCUS – CURRENT PROBLEM IN HUMANS AND ANIMALS

Drug-resistant bacteria from the genus Enterococcus are currently among the most important pathogens behind healthcare-associated infections. The drug resistance of these bacteria has been on the increase since the 1980s, leeding to their multi-drug resistance. Selective pressure, present mainly in the hospital environment, contributed to this phenomenon. However, also outside the hospital environment selective pressure comes into play, namely the use of antibiotics as promoters of growth in

Temperature, pH and Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazole Are Potent Inhibitors of Biofilm Formation by Stenotrophomonas maltophilia Clinical Isolates

Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, an opportunistic pathogen usually connected with healthcare-associated infections, is an environmental bacterium. Intrinsic resistance to multiple antibiotics, with different virulence determinants in the last decade classified this bacterium in the group of global multiple drug resistant (MDR) organism. S. maltophilia clinical isolates, were collected from tertiary care pediatric hospital in Belgrade, Serbia to investigate influence of different factors on biofilm
