Beta-lactamase Enzymes of Clinical Pseudomonas aeruginosa Strains

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2014.362
Pages: 
40–5
Synopsis: 
The resistance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa occurred pending treatment of patients, is a great danger. Detection of beta-lactamases and monitoring antibiotic susceptibilities are extremely important for the selection of appropriate empirical antibiotic therapy in P aeruginosa infections.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: In this study, the production of extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL), metallo-beta-lacatamase (MBL) and AmpC beta-lactamase enzymes of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (P aeruginosa) strains which were isolated from clinical samples were investigated. AmpC gene was also detected by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) analysis.

Nosocomial Urinary Tract Infections: Micro-organisms, Antibiotic Sensitivities and Risk Factors

Issue: 
Pages: 
188–93
Synopsis: 
Urinary tract infections are the most common hospital acquired infections. The aim of this study was to determine responsible micro-organisms, their antibiotic sensitivities and to describe the incidence and risk factors of nosocomial urinary fact infections.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Although urinary tract infections (UTIs) are the most common hospital-acquired infections, the epidemiology of these UTIs is not well defined in Turkey. The aim of this surveillance study was to determine micro-organisms responsible for UTI, their antibiotic sensitivities and to describe the incidence and risk factors of nosocomial urinary tract infections (NUTI).
