Abstract

Carbapenem-resistant Gram-negative bacteria, in particular the Acinetobacter baumannii-calcoaceticus complex and Enterobacteriaceae, are escalating global public health threats. We review the epidemiology and prevalence of these carbapenem-resistant Gram-negative bacteria among countries in South...

Abstract

Background: The increase of antibiotic resistance in clinically important bacteria is a worldwide threat, especially in healthcare environments. International travel is a risk factor for gut colonization with extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL-PE). The risk for...

Abstract

Sewage management in remote rural and mountain areas constitutes a challenge because of the lack of adequate infrastructure and economic capability. Tourism facilities, in particular, possess a special challenge because of huge variability in sewage production and composition as a consequence of...

Abstract

Bacterial resistance to antimicrobial agents is increasing. Complex resistant mechanisms have resulted in a wide spectrum of species and strains with multidrug-resistant patterns. In addition to the production of extended-spectrum-β-lactamases (ESBLs), Gram-negative rods have acquired the capacity...
