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: One third of travellers to low- and middle-income regions of the tropics and subtropics become colonized by extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL-PE). The risk varies by destination and, for each traveller, may be substantially further increased by...

Abstract

Background: One third of travellers to the poor regions of the (sub)tropics become colonized by extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL-PE). Co-resistance to non-beta-lactam antibiotics complicates the treatment of potential ESBL-PE infections. Methods: We analysed...

Abstract

Purpose of Review: The rise in antimicrobial resistance is an urgent public health threat which, in the absence of intervention, may result in a post-antibiotic era limiting the effectiveness of antibiotics to treat both common and serious infections. Globalization and human migration have...

AbstractFull Text

Bacterial pathogens such as E. coli/coliforms, Salmonella spp., Vibrio spp. From aquatic sources or fish could cause food and/or water born infections, thus posing a health risk to consumers and tourists in areas such as the Danube Delta, even more in case the carried species are antibiotic...

Abstract

Depending on their destinations and activities, international travellers are at a significant risk of contracting both communicable and non-communicable diseases. On return to their home countries, such travellers may require intensive care. The emergence of severe acute respiratory syndrome...

Abstract

Background: International travel contributes to the worldwide spread of multidrug resistant Gram-negative bacteria. Rates of travel-related faecal colonization with extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae vary for different destinations. Especially travellers returning...

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

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...
