Prevalence of β-lactamase-negative ampicillin-resistant Haemophilus influenzae (BLNAR) has become a clinical concern. In BLNAR, amino acid substitutions in penicillin-binding protein 3 (PBP3) are relevant to the β-lactam resistance. Carbapenem-non-susceptible H. influenzae isolates have been rarely reported. Through antimicrobial susceptibility testing and nucleotide sequence analysis of ftsI , encoding PBP3, and utilizing a collection of H. influenzae clinical isolates in our laboratory, we obtained a carbapenem-non-susceptible clinical isolate (NUBL1772) that possessed an altered PBP3 containing V525_N526insM...

BACKGROUND: Matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization-time of flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF MS) has been proved to be a useful tool for identification of pathogens directly isolated from blood cultures in clinical microbiology laboratories. β-Lactam antibiotics are commonly used for treatment of bloodstream infections caused by Enterobacteriaceae strains, and carbapenem is the superlative class of β-lactam antibiotics. Since the carbapenem resistance rate of Enterobacteriaceae strains raised year by year, efficient detection of carbapenemase activity and timely delivery of carbapenem susceptibility reports of Enterobacteriaceae strains isolated from blood cultures is important for clinicians...

Two lytic bacteriophages, WCHABP1 and WCHABP12, were recovered from hospital sewage and were able to infect 9 and 12 out of 18 carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii clinical strains, which belonged to different clones. Electron microscopy scan showed that both bacteriophages had the similar morphology as those of the Myoviridae family. Whole genomic sequencing revealed 45.4- or 45.8-kb genome with a 37.6% GC content for WCHABP1 and WCHABP12, both of which showed significant DNA sequence similarity with bacteriophages of the Ap22virus genus within the Myoviridae family...

Acinetobacter baumannii has intrinsic beta-lactamase genes, namely ampC and blaOXA-51 -like, which are only strongly expressed when the ISAba1 insertion sequence is upstream the 5' end of the genes. A second ampC gene has also been identified in some clinical A. baumannii strains. The increased expression of these genes leads to resistance to beta-lactams, including third-generation cephalosporins and/or carbapenems. The aim of this work was to assess the involvement of natural transformation in the transfer of chromosomal ampC-associated mobile elements, and related changes in the resistance profile of recipient cells...

Polymyxin is the last line of defense against severe infections caused by carbapenem-resistant gram-negative pathogens. The emergence of transferable MCR-1/2 polymyxin resistance greatly challenges the renewed interest in colistin (polymyxin E) for clinical treatments. Recent studies have suggested that Moraxella species are a putative reservoir for MCR-1/2 genetic determinants. Here, we report the functional definition of ICR-Mo from M. osloensis, a chromosomally encoded determinant of colistin resistance, in close relation to current MCR-1/2 family...
