Multiresistant Acinetobacter baumannii isolates in intensive care units in Greece
One hundred and twenty-one clinical isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii recovered from the intensive care units (ICUs) of nine tertiary-care hospitals in Athens, Greece were studied in order to determine whether the ...
Outbreak of multiple clones of imipenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii isolates expressing OXA-58 carbapenemase in an intensive care unit
Objectives: To investigate the resistance mechanisms and the genetic relationship of imipenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii isolates recovered in the intensive care unit (ICU) of a tertiary care hospital. Methods: ...
VIM-1 metallo-β-lactamase in Acinetobacter baumannii
In 2004 and 2005, 5 metallo-β-lactamase (MBL)-positive Acinetobacter baumannii isolates were found in 2 Greek hospitals. Isolates were unrelated and carried blaVIM-1 in a class 1 integron; blaOXA-51- and blaOXA-58-like ...
VIM-12, a novel plasmid-mediated metallo-β-lactamase from Klebsiella pneumoniae that resembles a VIM-1/VIM-2 hybrid
A transferable plasmid from Klebsiella pneumoniae carried a class 1 integron containing blaVIM-12, a novel blaVIM-type gene, flanked by two copies of aacA7. blaVIM-12 was clustered between bla-VIM-1 and bla-VIM-2 and ...
VIM-1 metallo-beta-lactamase in Acinetobacter baumannii
In 2004 and 2005, 5 metallo-beta-lactamase (MBL)-positive Acinetobacter baumannii isolates were found in 2 Greek hospitals. Isolates were unrelated and carried bla(VIM-1) in a class 1 integron; bla(OXA-51-) and bla(OXA-58-like) ...
Spread of efflux pump-overexpressing, non-metallo-beta-lactamase-producing, meropenem-resistant but ceftazidime-susceptible Pseudomonas aeruginosa in a region with bla(VIM) endemicity
Objectives: To investigate the resistance mechanisms of meropenem-resistant, ceftazidime-susceptible Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates, in a clinical setting where VIM-2 or VIM-4 metallo-beta-lactamase (MBL)-producing ...
