BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The susceptibility breakpoints of cephalosporins for Enterobacteriaceae were revised by the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) in 2010 and 2011. The clinical outcome and susceptibility data were analyzed to evaluate the impact of revised CLSI cefazolin breakpoints on the treatment of Escherichia coli bacteremia. METHODS: Forty-three bacteremic Escherichia coli isolates from Taichung Veterans General Hospital, Taichung, Taiwan, during the period from January 2013 to December 2013, were selected to analyze the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) distributions of cefazolin and the correlated clinical responses to cefazolin therapy...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to determine the molecular characteristics of β-lactamase genes in extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae isolates from Mongolia. METHODS: Fifty-six ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae isolates were collected, of which 46 were Escherichia coli, seven were Klebsiella pneumoniae, and three were K. oxytoca. Minimum inhibitory concentrations for selected antibiotics were tested using the agar dilution method, and the β-lactamase genes were determined using polymerase chain reaction combined with sequencing...

BACKGROUND: Infection is the most common predisposing factor for diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA); however, studies are rare that have investigated the clinical outcomes of septic patients with infection-precipitated DKA. METHODS: A retrospective cohort study was conducted at a tertiary hospital from 2004 to 2013. Patients with DKA in whom the presence of a predisposing infection was confirmed were enrolled. Characteristics at initial presentation, primary infection sources, and causative microorganisms were compared between the nonacute kidney injury (non-AKI) group and acute kidney injury (AKI) group at each stage...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Prototheca species are ubiquitous achlorophyllic microalgae belonging to the family Chlorellaceae, which can cause a wide range of infections in humans and animals. Mainly in individuals with immunologic defects or trauma, Prototheca spp. can cause even lethal diseases. However, the exact pathogenic mechanism of Prototheca in causing disease remains largely unknown. To investigate the differences between pathogenic and nonpathogenic Prototheca spp. genotypes on proteome level, a nonpathogenic Prototheca zopfii genotype 1 strain, isolated from cow manure, and a human pathogenic P...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: Viral infections and innate immunity signaling, especially Toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of biliary atresia (BA). Administration of rhesus rotavirus-type A to newborn Balb/c mice produces inflammatory obstruction of bile ducts, which resembles human BA. However, whether activation of TLR7 signaling plays a role in neonatal hepatobiliary injury remains to be investigated. METHODS: TLR7 agonist, imiquimod (R837), was intraperitoneally administered to Balb/c mice within 24 hours of birth and then every other day...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: To investigate risk factors of latent tuberculosis infection (LTBI) among inpatients of chronic psychiatric wards with tuberculosis (TB) outbreaks. METHODS: In April 2013, inpatients of four all-male wards with TB outbreaks were tested for LTBI using the QuantiFERON-TB Gold in Tube (QFT) method. Based on this investigation, a retrospective study was conducted to assess risk factors for LTBI. Inpatients exposed to cluster-A or cluster-B TB cases were defined as contacts of cluster-A or cluster-B, and others, as nonclustered contacts...

BACKGROUND/PURPOSE: The prevalence of extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae in nursing home residents has rarely been reported in Taiwan. METHODS: A retrospective study was performed at medical wards of a district hospital at southern Taiwan between July 2009 and June 2011. Patients were included if they were older than 18 years, admitted via the emergency department, and their blood, sputum, or urine culture revealed the growth of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, or Proteus mirabilis...

The putative pathogenicity island (PAI) containing the uropathogenic specific protein (usp) gene and three small open reading frames (orfU1, orfU2, and orfU3) encoding 98, 97, and 96 amino acid proteins is widely distributed among uropathogenic Escherichia coli (UPEC) strains. This PAI was designated as PAIusp. Sequencing analysis of PAIusp has revealed that the usp gene can be divided into two types - uspI and uspII - based on sequence variation at the 3' terminal region and the number and position of orfUs differ from strain to strain...

The epidemiological and molecular characteristics of eight linezolid nonsusceptible Enterococcus faecalis isolated from a teaching hospital in China (January to July 2014) were investigated. The target site modifications and cfr gene associated with linezolid resistance were not found. Results of the epidemiological investigation indicated that linezolid resistance possibly occurred on several independent occasions and was often not related to linezolid administration.

BACKGROUND: To investigate the incidence and risk factors for the occurrence of proven or probable invasive fungal infection (IFI) in adult patients receiving allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT). METHODS: We retrospectively analyzed 421 patients undergoing HSCT between 2002 and 2013 in our hospital. The risk factors for the occurrence of IFI were analyzed using Cox regression models. RESULTS: Thirty-one patients with the median age of 42 years (range, 19-60 years) developed IFI after HSCT...

BACKGROUND: Aerosolized colistin methanesulfonate (CMS) has been used for the treatment of extensively drug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (XDRAB) pneumonia and eradication of XDRAB colonization in the respiratory tract. The aims of this study were to compare the efficacy, adverse effects, clinical outcomes, and microbiological eradication of the cases of XDRAB pneumonia or colonization. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed the medical records of patients who received aerosolized CMS for the treatment of pneumonia and airway colonization due to XDRAB...

BACKGROUND: To determine whether the presence of a capsule regulator gene [i.e., regulator of mucoid phenotype A (rmpA) gene] contributes to virulence on extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae (ESBL-KP) with serotype non-K1/K2 strains. METHODS: Twenty-eight ESBL-KP and non-ESBL-KP isolates were collected from the Tri-Service General Hospital (Taipei, Taiwan). The impact of the virulent rmpA gene in different capsular polysaccharide serotypes on ESBL-KP and non-ESBL-KP isolates was studied by a neutrophil phagocytosis reaction, a serum bactericidal assay, and an animal survival model...

BACKGROUND: Infective endocarditis (IE) due to Pseudomonas aeruginosa is rare and accounts for only about 3% of all patients with this disease. Most infections are associated with the use of intravenous drugs. Patients with P. aeruginosa-related IE who do not use intravenous drugs are extremely rare. We carried out a review of the literature to identify the nature and risk factors of this disease. METHODS: Patients with IE reported between 1993 and 2013 were reviewed by searching the Medline database using the keywords "endocarditis" and "Pseudomonas aeruginosa"...

BACKGROUND: Listeria monocytogenes (LM) is an important zoonotic foodborne pathogen. Noncoding RNA (ncRNA) has an important role in regulating its virulence. As a member of ncRNA, however, the function of Rli60 in regulating LM virulence remain unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the role of Rli60 in regulating LM virulence. METHODS: Using a homologous recombination method, a LM EGD-e rli60 gene deletion strain (LM-Δrli60) was constructed and compared with a LM EGD-e strain in the following respects: (1) adhesiveness, invasion ability, intracellular survival, proliferation, and transcription of virulence genes in the mouse macrophage cell line RAW264...

BACKGROUND: Despite the high vaccination coverage in Taiwan, sporadic cases or small cluster of measles still occur every year. Nevertheless, few studies provided information about the serostatus for measles in recent years. This cross-sectional survey aimed to establish the seroepidemiologic data of measles among elementary school children in New Taipei City, Taiwan during 2012-2013. METHODS: A multistage stratified sampling design using 14 variables was employed to obtain samples...
