Clinical spectrum of Aeromonas infections in hospitalized patients
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:39 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: The genus Aeromonas is a member of the family Vibrionaceae. Aeromonas hydrophila is the most commonly isolated species associated with human infections. Aeromonas species are gram negative,oxidase positive, non fermenting rods found in fresh water and are known to cause gastroenteritis, cellulitis, necrotizing fasciitis, meningitis, bacteremia and urinary tract infections.

Factors associated with Urinary tract infections caused by extended spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) producing organisms in Sri Lanka
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:39 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: Urinary tract infections (UTI) caused by extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing organisms are a major burden in clinical practice. Hospitalization in the past 3 months, antibiotic treatment in the past 3 months, age over 60 years, diabetes mellitus, Klebsiella pneumoniae infection, previous use of second or third-generation cephalosporins, quinolones or penicillins are known associations and risk factors for ESBL-UTI.

In-vivo efficacy of a novel Leu-t-RNA synthatase inhibitor compound a against MDR Pseudomonas aeruginosa 1594965 in a foreign body associated urinary tract infection model
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:39 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is one of the major pathogens causing morbidity and mortality in hospital acquired infections (HAI). MDR P. aeruginosa are resistant to 3 or more classes of antibiotics. In cUTI cases catheter associated infections are incurable by most of the antibiotics. Compound A a novel Leu-t-RNA synthetase inhibitor showed efficacy in mouse ascending urinary tract infection (AUTI) model against P. aeruginosa biofilms formed on urinary catheters.

Antibiotic sensitivity patterns among ESBL UTIs in Sri Lanka
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:39 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: Extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) producing organisms causing urinary tract infections (UTI) are increasing in incidence and poses a major burden to health care requiring treatment with expensive antimicrobials and prolonged hospital stay. The prevalence of ESBL producing organisms particularly in the Asian region remains unknown. In a study carried out in a tertiary care center in India,70/218(32.1%) clinical isolates of Enterobacteriaceae were confirmed as ESBL. Of them K. pneumonia were the most common ESBL producers(46.4%), followed by E coli (31.7%). (Source: International Journal of Infectious Diseases)

AmpC β-lactamase producing Escherichia coli associated with urinary tract infection from a tertiary health care centre in North East India
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:39 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: Escherichia coli are the major causes of urinary tract infection (UTI) and an emerging problem worldwide. These organisms harbouring AmpC beta-lactamase is a major cause of therapeutic failure leaving cephalosporins inactive along with co-existing mechanism of resistance. The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of Escherichia coli producing AmpC beta- lactamase in UTI and analyse their antibiotic susceptibility pattern from a tertiary care hospital in North Eastern part of India.

Analysis of quinolone resistance due to mutational changes in escherichia coli associated with urinary tract infections: A study from North East India
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:39 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: Background: Quinolone group of antibiotics are predominantly used drugs for treatment of urinary tract infections. However, in recent decade's treatment failure to this drug is due to bacterial adaptation by acquisition of plasmid mediated quinolone resistance determinants. There also exists an intrinsic resistance mechanism by mutational changes in bacteria in type II and type IV bacterial topoisomerase. The study was designed to analysis point mutation in the gyrA and parC gene leading quinolone resistance in uropathogenic Eshcerichia coli from community settings.

Prevalence of urinary tract infection among HIV patients in Aba, Nigeria
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:38 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: People living with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) are more prone to opportunistic infection including urinary tract infection (UTI) due to progressive immune dysfunction by the virus. The study was conducted to determine the prevalence of UTI among HIV patients attending Seventh Day Adventist Hospital Aba (SDA) for routine antiretroviral therapy as well as the effect of CD4+ count on the prevalence of UTI.

Bacterial and fungal infections in liver transplant recipients
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:37 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: According to the latest WHO data ,Liver disease related deaths in India reached 2.44% of total deaths. The most effective treatment for patients with end-stage liver disease is to undergo liver transplantation. Infectious complications are major causes of morbidity and mortality after liver transplantation. They might cause surgical site infections, bacteraemia, pneumonia, catheter-related infections and urinary tract infections. (Source: International Journal of Infectious Diseases)

Non-typhoidal Salmonella urinary tract infection: Molecular resistance and clinical correlation – A four year study from a tertiary care centre
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:36 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: Extra intestinal manifestations due to Non-typhoidal Salmonella (NTS), especially bacteriuria are rare. The aim of the study was to determine the incidence, clinical spectrum of disease, phenotypic and genotypic resistance patterns among the isolates and clinical outcomes.

Population structure and molecular epidemiology of human clinical multi-drug resistant (MDR) Escherichia coli strains from Pune, India
Tue, 29 Mar 2016 09:23:36 +0100 | International Journal of Infectious Diseases
Background: Extraintestinal pathogenic E. coli (ExPEC) cause different infectious diseases in humans and animals, accounting 80% of urinary tract infections (UTIs), worldwide. Increase in the prevalence of multidrug-resistant (MDR) E. coli and global dissemination of these clonal organisms is a significant risk to the public health. The present study investigates the prevalence, population structure, phylogenetic affinities and molecular basis of ESBL and antimicrobial resistance and also highlights the spread of multi-drug resistant E.
