However, as isolates with borderline penicillin MICs are increasing, continued surveillance of pneumococcal susceptibility to penicillin will be needed.
Support Center Support Center. Laboratory grade standard powder of cefepime Sigma Chemical Company, St. Address correspondence to Marc H.
KPC not easily detected using commercial susceptibility systems—some isolates have an MIC of 2 to the carbapenems still susceptible KPC enzymes hydrolyze expanded-spectrum cephalosporins as well—therefore, all Enterobacteriaceae isolates that have an ESBL phenotype should be screened for a carbapenemase.
Share buttons are a little bit lower. The ertapenem disk zone size of inhibition for the KPC-positive ertapenem-intermediate bacteria was 16 mm for all three isolates, versus 17, 17, 18, and 19 mm for the four non-KPC bacteria, indicating that it might be possible to distinguish KPC-positive from KPC-negative bacteria solely by the size of the ertapenem disk zone of inhibition, using 16 mm as the breakpoint. PHT Lab 9. Open in a separate window.

View large Download slide. The few strains that were categorized as nonsusceptible to macrolides had MIC results that were one twofold dilution higher than the calculated cutoff values and are unlikely to harbor true resistance mechanisms. These were attributed to the disk contents used, which are the conventional strengths used in CLSI disk diffusion testing. Penicillin resistance not a factor in outcome from invasive Streptococcus pneumoniae community-acquired pneumonia in adults when appropriate empiric therapy is started.
These recommendations drove our choice of agents to examine. Ertapenem screening was performed with 2, Enterobacteriaceae isolates, including isolates of Enterobacter spp. Susceptibilities of Haemophilus influenzaeStreptococcus pneumoniaeincluding serotype 19A, and Moraxella catarrhalis paediatric isolates from to to commonly used antibiotics.
National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards. Navigating the Changes to CLSI M, M02 and M07 — ppt video online download Auth with social network: To avoid duplication, only the first pneumococcal isolate from each patient was included for statistial analysis. Dashed vertical lines represent calculated zone diameter interpretive criteria.
The impact of penicillin resistance on short-term mortality in hospitalized adults with pneumococcal pneumonia: S, susceptible; I, intermediately resistant; R, resistant. Ecthyma gangrenosum caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae and Streptococcus vestibularis in a patient with acute myeloid leukemia: With regard to ceftriaxone non-susceptibility, the rate increased significantly from an average of 2.

Methods for antimicrobial dilution and disk susceptibility testing of infrequently isolated or fastidious bacteria. Very major errors were observed in 20 cases The only resistances that featured in our region were those for tetracycline Predictability of doripenem m in Acinetobacter baumannii isolates based on other carbapenem susceptibilities and bla OXA gene status.
Isolates were obtained from frozen stores i. Therefore, interpretive criteria were developed using the remaining isolates. Vitek 2 appears to be associated with very high error rates and may not be a reliable clinical tool for making predictions of the susceptibility of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae to cefepime. Definitions of penicillin susceptibility or resistance in S. Zone diameters were read by the Osiris zone reader Bio-Rad, Mames-la-Coquette, Francea system with proven reliability Of these 85 ertapenem-intermediate or -resistant isolates, 63 were KPC positive, all of which were K.
Recently, the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute CLSI Subcommittee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing published an interpretive guideline 6but only for broth microdilution tests, using criteria essentially the same as those applied to Haemophilus spp. This difference may be attributed to the higher level of antimicrobial use s1 the paediatric population.
