    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

  2. 2. Epidemiology of extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli

    Author : Sofia Ny; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Extended-Spectrum β-Lactamase and plasmid mediated AmpC (ESBL/pAmpC)-producing Escherichia coli (E. coli) has during the last decades emerged worldwide and is now an increasing problem in both human and animal health. READ MORE

  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. Recurrent infection with Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamase (ESBL) -producing Enterobacteriaceae

    Author : Anna Lindblom; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ESBL; E. coli; recurrent infection; UTI; AMR; phylogroup; fimH30Rx;

    Abstract : Infections with Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae (EPE) are increasing globally. The most common EPE are the gut pathogens Escherichia coli (ESBL-E. coli) and Klebsiella pneumoniae (ESBL-K. pneumoniae). READ MORE

  5. 5. Human Pathogens and Antibiotic Resistant Bacteria in Polar Regions

    Abstract : Coincident with human activity in recent decades, human-associated microorganisms have arrived to the Antarctic region, possibly linked to increasing presence of scientific bases and ship-borne tourists. In the Arctic, humans have been present for a very long time, and the few parts of the Arctic without human activities is decreasing with time. READ MORE
