Extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs), which hydrolyse extended-spectrum cephalosporins and are inhibited by clavulanic acid, are spreading among Enterobacteriaceae. The CTX-M enzymes are replacing SHV and TEM enzymes as the prevalent type of ESBLs, principally in community-acquired infections caused by Escherichia coli. Associated infectious syndromes include mainly urinary tract infection...
Abstract Background and objectives: The increase of ESBL producing E.coli can create a tremendous difficult y for the health system. These isolates leads to rapid transmission of causative genes to other clinically important bacteria and synchronously increased resistant to other antibiotics. This study was carried out to determine the prevalence of this isolate and related genes in Gorgan, Nor...
Background: Production of β–lactamases by enterobacteriacea, especially Klebsiella pneumoniae, is one of the emerging health problems in the world. The purpose of this study was to assess the frequency of blaCTX-M15 gene in K. pneumoniae isolates and determine the molecular diversity of CTXM producing isolates.
Background: and Objectives: Salmonella infections are endemic in many developing countries with poor sanitary conditions, but emerge sporadically as a serious public health threat in developed countries. Infections with multidrug resistant (MDR) strains of Salmonella have been associated with treatment failures. Salmonella spp. resistant to extended spectrum cephal...
Extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteria has become a considerable global concern because of their potential dissemination in humans, in domestic animals, wildlife and the environment. The present study aimed to explore the ESBL producing enterobacteria in aquatic sources of Bangladesh as the water may be the potential source of dissemination of this alarming ant...
Background and objectives:
(ESBL) strain is one of the emerging health related problems in the world recently.
Some of the species of the gram-negative bacilli including Klebsiella Pneumonia &
Escherichia Coli are well known ESBL producing among bacteria, and they cause
uncontrollable infections. This Cross-sectional study was designed to asses the
ESBL producing gra...
Background and purpose: Escherichia coli (E.coli) is the most common cause of urinary tract infection. The treatment strategy has been hampered by the emergence of broad-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing E.coli and its resistance to most antibiotics. Bacteriophages are suggested as an alternative treatment option. This study aimed at evaluating the lytic activity of isolated phage from unpaste...
Ali A Jabri,
extended spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) producing gram negative bacilli are becoming a growing problem worldwide with difficulties in designing a national formulary for empirical treatment of gram negative sepsis.
In this study, we investigated the in vitro activity of Carbapenems, Pipracillin-Tazobactam, Ciprofloxacin alone or in combination with aminoglycosides against ES...
Extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae with Cefotaximase-München (CTX-M) enzymes are rapidly increasing worldwide and pose a threat to health care. ESBLs with CTX-M enzymes have been isolated from animals and different food products, but it is unknown if food imported from the Mediterranean area may be a possible reservoir of these bacteria. During 2007-2008, swab sam...

To determine the occurrence of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae in Bahrain.
Retrospective analysis of records (January 2005-December 2006) at the Microbiology Laboratory of the Salmaniya Medical Complex, Bahrain which is the major national diagnostic laboratory.
Out of a total of 11,886 member of family of Enterobacteriaceae iso...
