  1. 1. Antimicrobial Resistance and Production of Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamases in Enterobacteriaceae from Birds in Bangladesh

    Author : Badrul Hasan; Björn Olsen; Åsa Melhus; Yvonne Agersø; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Antimicrobial Resistance; ESBL; CTX-M; NDM; Poultry; Wild birds; E. coli; Bangladesh; Enterobacteriaceae; Antibiotics; Epidemiology; Epidemiologi; Mikrobiologi; Microbiology; Medical Science; Medicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : The dissemination of members of the Enterobacteriaceae family with extended spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) and metallo-beta-lactamases (MBLs) has become a global concern. ESBLs and MBLs have been reported in humans, domestic animals, wildlife and the environment, and their isolation frequencies are increasing rapidly worldwide. READ MORE

  2. 2. Extended-Spectrum ß-Lactamase-Producing Enterobacteriaceae : Antibiotic consumption, Detection and Resistance Epidemiology

    Author : Åse Östholm Balkhed; Lennart Nilsson; Håkan Hanberger; Hans-Jurg Monstein; Anita Hällgren; Mats Kalin; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : Extended-Spectrum ß-Lactamase-Producing Enterobacteriaceae; Antibiotic consumption; Detection Methods; Multiplex PCR; Resistance Epidemiology; Multi-resistance; E. coli; ESBL; fecal carriage; faecal carriage; travel;

    Abstract : ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae are emerging worldwide and they are frequently multi-drug resistant, thus limiting treatment options for infections caused by these pathogens.The overall aim of the thesis was to investigate ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae in a Swedish county.

  3. 3. Epidemiology of ESBL-producing E. coli with special reference to outbreak detection

    Author : Lisa Helldal; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : E. coli; epidemiology; surveillance;

    Abstract : Multidrug resistant bacteria, particularly extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae (EPE), are becoming a major health concern. ESBL-producing Escherichia coli (ESBL-E. coli) is the most prevalent type. ESBL-genes are carried on plasmids, often by bacteria belonging to clones with properties that facilitate transmission.

  4. 4. Antibiotic Resistance in Enterobacteriaceae Isolated from Wild Birds

    Author : Jonas Bonnedahl; Björn Olsen; Martin Wierup; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The presence and spread of clinically important antibiotic-resistant bacteria in reservoirs from natural environments are not well studied compared to the clinical environments. The overall aim of this project was to study the presence of clinically important antibiotic-resistant bacteria in a reservoir from natural environments. READ MORE

  5. 5. Long-term molecular epidemiology of extended-spectrum β-lactamase producing Escherichia coli in a low-endemic setting

    Author : Anna Fagerström; Bo Söderquist; Paula Mölling; Martin Sundqvist; Katarina Persson; Linus Sandegren; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Escherichia coli; extended-spectrum β-lactamase; whole genome sequencing; plasmids; hybrid assembly; environment; IncI1; ST131;

    Abstract : Escherichia coli is a commensal inhabitant in the gastro-intestinal tract of humans and animals but it is also the most common bacterial species causing urinary tract infection, which ranges in severity from distal cystitis to urosepsis and septic shock. During the past decades, the prevalence of antibiotic resistant E. READ MORE
