ANALYSIS OF SELECTED GENETIC TRAITS, PHENOTYPES, AND THE EPIDEMIOLOGICAL THREAT OF ENTEROCOCCUS BACTERIA RESISTANT TO VANCOMYCIN

isolated from the digestive system, especially of the large intestine, and the genitourinary system (approx. 39–95% of clinical trials), just like E. faecium, which, however, can be isolated much less frequently (in approx. 3–47% of clinical trials) [1]. Both of these species can be human pathogens. The other two, E. gallinarum and E. casseliflavus, despite exhibiting natural resistance to vancomycin, appear sporadically (in about 5% of clinical samples in total) and are generally not pathogenic [3, 4

Emergence of High-level Gentamicin Resistance among Enterococci Clinical Isolates from Burn Patients in South-west of Iran: Vancomycin Still Working

Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium are among the main agents associated with nosocomial infections with high mortality in immunocompromised patients. Antibiotic resistance, especially against gentamicin and vancomycin among Enterococci, is a risk factor that could increase the morbidity and mortality rate. 179 Enterococci isolates from burn patients were included in this study. Antibiotic susceptibility testing was done using the disk diffusion test and minimum inhibitory

Vancomycin-induced neutropenia associated with anti-granulocyte antibodies

Neutropenia is a rare complication associated with vancomycin, and the cause of this adverse reaction is not well understood. We report a case of vancomycin-induced neutropenia in which we were able to demonstrate anti-granulocyte antibodies. We also report the results of a bone marrow examination along with a brief review of the literature.

Case ABO report: discrepancy due to vancomycin complicating a transfusion reaction investigation

. The patient's chart revealed that vancomycin, reported to be a cause of non-immune agglutination of red cells, had been injected into the IV tubing one hour prior to transfusion. Further testing confirmed that the patient's febrile response to transfusion was consistent with a nonhemolytic transfusion reaction and was unrelated to the drug-induced, pseudo ABO problem.

Spa typing of Staphylococcus aureus Isolated from Clinical Specimens from Outpatients in Iraq

Introduction Staphylococcus aureus is the most common cause of nosocomial and community-acquired infections worldwide (Lakhundi and Zhang 2018; Kourtis et al. 2019). Since the late 1970s, the importance of S. aureus increased due to the emergence and spread of their resistance to methicillin and vancomycin (Parker and Hewitt 1970; Bendary et al. 2016; Abd El-Aziz et al. 2018). Recent studies have shown marked dissemination of methicillin-resistant S. aureus in Iraq (Kareem et al. 2015; Kareem

PATHOGENICITY OF LACTOBACILLUS SP. – RISK FACTORS, IDENTIFICATION, ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE

lactobacilli, such as neutropenia in immunocompromised patients and certain underlying diseases, especially diabetes. Also, lactobacilli have a natural resistance to some antibiotics, especially vancomycin. The identification of lactobacilli can be very difficult due to the number of species, subspecies and genotypic or phenotypic traits. The most advanced procedures are molecular DNA-based techniques. Conventional biochemical tests can be also used to determine some differences. Lactobacilli infection can

Predominance of Lactobacillus plantarum Strains in Peruvian Amazonian Fruits

The bacterial susceptibility toward antibiotics was analyzed by the agar diffusion test on MRS or Kirby-Bauer disk-diffusion method. According to the presence or absence of bacterial growth around the antimicrobial disc, the colonies were classified as Resistant (R) or Sensitive (S) according to the criteria of Charteris et al. (1998). Production of lactic acid and exopolymers (EPS) was also tested. Lactic acid production was evaluated

, sulfamethoxazoletrimethoprim, β-lactam antibiotics, clozapine, levamisole, and vancomycin. Assays used for detection of neutrophil drug-dependent antibodies (DDAbs) include flow cytometry, monoclonal antibody immobilization of granulocyte antigens, enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay, immunoblotting, granulocyte agglutination, and granulocytotoxicity. However, testing for neutrophil DDAbs is rarely performed owing to its complexity and lack of availability. Mechanisms proposed for DIIN have not been rigorously studied

For vancomycin, the minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) was determined by E-test (bioMérieux, France). The methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) phenotype was detected using a cefoxitin disc (30 μg). The macrolide-lincosamide-streptogramin B (MLSB

Zwiększona ilość zakażeń szpitalnych wywołanych szczepami MRSA wymusiła szerokie stosowanie kolejnego antybiotyku – wankomycyny.

Drug-induced immune thrombocytopenia: incidence, clinical features, laboratory testing, and pathogenic mechanisms

Drug-induced immune thrombocytopenia (DIIT) is a relatively uncommon adverse reaction caused by drug-dependent antibodies (DDAbs) that react with platelet membrane glycoproteins only when the implicated drug is present. Although more than 100 drugs have been associated with causing DIIT, recent reviews of available data show that carbamazepine, eptifibatide, ibuprofen, quinidine, quinine, oxaliplatin, rifampin, sulfamethoxazole, trimethoprim, and vancomycin are probably the most frequently
