Urinary tract physiological conditions promote ciprofloxacin resistance in low-level quinolone resistant Escherichia coli

Escherichia coli isolates carrying chromosomally-encoded low-level quinolone resistant (LLQR) determinants are frequently found in urinary tract infections (UTI). LLQR mutations are considered the first step in the evolutionary pathway producing high-level fluoroquinolone resistance. Therefore, their evolution and dissemination might influence the outcome of fluoroquinolone treatments of UTI. Previous studies support the notion that low urine…

Comprehensive clinical and epidemiological assessment of colonisation and infection due to carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in Spain

The paper “Comprehensive clinical and epidemiological assessment of colonisation and infection due to carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in Spain”, by Palacios-Baena et al, has been recently published in Journal of Infection. Most previous clinical studies con carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CEP) include only specific patients (e.g., bacteraemic episodes or ICU patients), and most data in outcome analysis were performed…

In vivo evolution of resistance of Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains isolated from patients admitted to an intensive care unit: mechanisms of resistance and antimicrobial exposure.   [JAC (2015) 70:3004-13]

This has been a collaborative study between two groups of REIPI (Hospital Clinic of Barcelona and University Hospital Son Espases, Palma de Mallorca) with the aim of investigating the relationship among the in vivo acquisition of antimicrobial resistance in Pseudomonas aeruginosa clinical isolates, the underlying molecular mechanisms and previous exposure to antipseudomonal agents. All patients…

Risk factors predicting early invasive pulmonary aspergillosis in kidney transplant recipients: results from a multinational case-control study.

  American Journal Transplantation 2016 (in press) Risk factors for invasive pulmonary aspergillosis (IPA) after kidney transplantation (KT) have been poorly explored. We performed a multinational case-control study that included 51 KT recipients diagnosed with early (first 180 post-transplant days) IPA in 19 institutions between 2000 and 2013. Controls recipients were matched (1:1 ratio) by…
