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.

Comparison of Antibiotic Resistance and Virulence Factors in Pigmented and Non-pigmented Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Issue: 
Pages: 
24–32
Synopsis: 
The study found that pigment production was significantly associated with multi-drug resistance, presence of virulence-associated genes, and expression of some important virulence factors. The authors conclude that since pigment production is easy to determine, this might be a good starting point to identify the virulence status of an isolate.

ABSTRACT

Objective: Pseudomonas aeruginosa produces multiple virulence factors that have been implicated in pathogenesis and quorum sensing. The aim of this study was to determine differences in the virulence factors of pigmented and non-pigmented P aeruginosa isolates.

Pseudomonas aeruginosa Resistance to Various Commonly used Antibiotics in 27 Hospital Patients

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.450
Synopsis: 
This study observed patient wound swabs at the University Hospital in Zagreb Croatia in order to determine antibiotic resistance patterns to Pseudomonas aeruginosa in our patients. It was found that Pseudomonas aeurginosa show a high degree of resistance (>50% resistance) to antibiotics commonly used in day to day practice.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study was to use wound swabs to determine antibiotic resistance patterns in Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which has been shown to be highly resistant to many commonly used antibiotics.

Detection and Characterization of Metallo-β-lactamases in Pseudomonas aeruginosa by Phenotypic and Molecular Methods from Clinical Samples in a Tertiary Care Hospital

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.183
Pages: 
778–83
Synopsis: 
The present study confirms the dissemination of metallo- β-lactamase (MBL) genes among multi-drug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Early recognition of MBL producers is important and necessitates rigorous infection control measures and restricted use of carbapenems for treatment of clinical infections. The dissemination of this gene to clinically relevant species may endanger patients and it may have adverse implications on treatment.
