Attributable deaths and disability-adjusted life-years caused by infections with antibiotic-resistant bacteria in the EU and the European Economic Area in 2015: a population-level modelling analysis

post thumbnail

Background: Infections due to antibiotic-resistant bacteria are threatening modern health care. However, estimating their incidence, complications, and attributable mortality is challenging. We aimed to estimate the burden of infections caused by antibiotic-resistant bacteria of public health concern in countries of the EU and European Economic Area (EEA) in 2015, measured in number of cases, attributable deaths, and disability-adjusted […]

Behandeling van infecties met zeer resistente bacteriën

post thumbnail

Wereldwijd stijgt de prevalentie van carbapenemase-producerende Enterobacteriaceae en multiresistente Pseudomonas aeruginosa .Ook in Nederland worden we geconfronteerd met infecties met deze zeer resistente bacteriën. Voor de behandeling van dergelijke infecties baseert men zich op ervaringen uit casusbeschrijvingen en resultaten van retrospectieve studies.Trials naar mogelijke combinatietherapieën worden op dit moment opgezet of zijn net gestart. Er zijn op korte termijn geen nieuwe […]

Increased Detection Of Carbapenemase-Producing Enterobacteriaceae On Post-Clean Sampling Of Burns Units Wet Surfaces

post thumbnail

Wet surface biofilms are a potential reservoir for multidrug-resistant Gram-negative organisms, including carbapenamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae (CPE). Recognition of environmental sources is important in reducing secondary patient transmission. We report the increased detection of bla-IMP-4+ CPE in environmental samples from floor drains in Burns Unit shower rooms, when collected following cleaning as compared to pre-cleaning. We propose that disruption of […]

Extended-spectrum beta-lactamase producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL-E) isolated from bean sprouts in the Netherlands

post thumbnail

Community-acquired carriage and infections due to extended-spectrum beta-lactamase producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL-E) are increasing worldwide, resulting in increased morbidity, mortality and healthcare costs. The origins of community-acquired ESBL-E car- riage and infections remain unclear. Bean sprouts are a potential source of Enterobacteria- ceae for the community, as illustrated by outbreaks of pathogenic Enterobacteriaceae in the past. The current study focuses on contamination […]

Whole-Genome Sequencing of Bacterial Pathogens: the Future of Nosocomial Outbreak Analysis

post thumbnail

Outbreaks of multidrug-resistant bacteria present a frequent threat to vulnerable patient populations in hospitals around the world. Intensive care unit (ICU) patients are particularly susceptible to nosocomial infections due to indwelling devices such as intravascular catheters, drains, and intratracheal tubes for mechani- cal ventilation. The increased vulnerability of infected ICU patients demonstrates the importance of […]

Candida Auris: A New Fungal Superbug Emerging As A Global Threat

post thumbnail

The new bug on the block is Candida auris. This is different from the common Candida albicans, which frequently causes vaginal yeast infections in women, diaper rash or "thrush," an oral infection often complicating antibiotic treatment. C. albicans is susceptible to many anti-fungals; C. auris is not, and often is resistant to multiple classes of antibiotics. The other disturbing trait is C. auris ability […]
