    Abstract : Background Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) and in particular Staphylococcus epidermidis have emerged as major pathogens primarily causing nosocomial infections in patients with indwelling medical devices. These infections are often caused by multidrug-resistant strains of S. epidermidis (MDRSE). READ MORE

  2. 2. Epidemiology of Enterococci with Acquired Resistance to Antibiotics in Sweden : Special emphasis on Ampicillin and Vancomycin

    Author : Erik Torell; Mats Kallin; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Communicable diseases; Antimicrobial resistance; enterococci; epidemiology in Sweden; intra-hospital spread; shedding; risk-factors; infection; colonization; virulence factors; ARE; VRE; Php; PFGE; esp; gyrA; parC; Infektionssjukdomar; Infectious diseases; Infektionssjukdomar; infektionssjukdomar; Infectious Diseases;

    Abstract : The first hospital outbreak of vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE) and carriage rates of VRE and ampicillin-resistant enterococci (ARE) in Sweden were investigated. Clonal relationships and mutations in fluoroquinolone resistance determining regions among ARE collected nation-wide were studied. READ MORE

  3. 3. In vitro Pharmacodynamics of Antifungal Agents in the Treatment of Candida Infections
