Mycobacterium tuberculosis (Mtb) executes a plethora of immune-evasive mechanisms, which contribute to its pathogenesis, limited efficacy of current therapy, and the emergence of drug-resistant strains. This has led to resurgence in attempts to develop new therapeutic strategies/targets against tuberculosis (TB). We show that Mtb down-regulates sirtuin 1 (SIRT1), a nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD(+))-dependent deacetylase, in monocytes/macrophages, TB animal models, and TB patients with active disease...

We used meropenem to successfully treat a patient with bacteremia due to ceftazidime-avibactam-resistant, meropenem- susceptible Klebsiella pneumoniae that carried mutant blaKPC-3. Meropenem was bactericidal against ceftazidime-avibactam- resistant K pneumoniae isolates in vitro. Nevertheless, the role of carbapenems in treating such infections remains uncertain, because meropenem resistance is selected readily during passage experiments.

AIMS: Specific genotypes of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) have been reported to cause outbreaks of pulmonary tuberculosis (TB) in geographical areas that are endemic to TB. However, since there is little epidemiological evidence on the association of particular genotypes that cause tuberculous meningitis (TBM), we sought to investigate the association of specific MTB strains with infection of the central nervous system (CNS). MATERIALS AND METHODS: We carried out a genetic characterisation of 89 MTB isolates from TBM patients at a Southern Indian tertiary neurocare centre and compared the genotypes with strains of pulmonary TB isolated from Indian immigrants in New York City...

We determined imipenem, imipenem-relebactam, ceftazidime and ceftazidime-avibactam minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) against 100 CRE isolates that underwent whole genome sequencing. KPCs were the most common carbapenemases. Forty-six isolates carried ESBLs. With the addition of relebactam, imipenem susceptibility increased from 8% to 88%. With the addition of avibactam, ceftazidime susceptibility increased from 0% to 85%. Neither imipenem-relebactam nor ceftazidime-avibactam was active against MBL-producers...

Hypervirulent and multidrug resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae strains pose a significant threat to the public health. In the present study, 21 carbapenem-resistant K. pneumoniae isolates (CRKP) were determined by the string test as hypermucoviscous K. pneumoniae (HMKP), with the prevalence of 15.0% (21/140) among CRKP, and 1.1% (21/1838) among all K. pneumoniae isolates. Among them, 7 (33.3%), and 1 (4.76%) isolate belonged to capsular serotype K20 and K2 respectively, while 13 (61.9%, 13/21) weren't successfully typed by capsular serotyping...

There are no data comparing outcomes of patients treated with ceftazidime-avibactam vs. comparators for carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae infections. At our center, ceftazidime-avibactam treatment of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteremia was associated with higher rates of clinical success (P=0.006) and survival (P=0.01) than other regimens. Across treatment groups, there were no differences in underlying diseases, severity of illness, source of bacteremia, or strain characteristics (97% were KPC-producing)...

We characterized spa types, SCCmec types, and antimicrobial resistance patterns of 516 methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) isolates, collected between 2011 and 2014 from nares and blood cultures of United States patients. Among nares isolates, 45 spa types were observed; 29.9% were t002/SCCmec II and 30.9% were t008/SCCmec IV. Among blood isolates, 40 spa types were identified; 24.4% were t002/SCCmec II and 39.9% were type t008/SCCmec IV. Compared to data from our 2009-2010 survey, the percentage of t008/SCCmec IV isolates from nares increased significantly (20...

Background: : International data on the molecular epidemiology of Enterobacteriaceae with VIM carbapenemases are limited. Methods: We performed short read (Illumina) WGS on a global collection of 89 VIM-producing clinical Enterobacteriaceae (2008-14). Results: VIM-producing (11 varieties within 21 different integrons) isolates were mostly obtained from Europe. Certain integrons with bla VIM were specific to a country in different species and clonal complexes (CCs) (In 87 , In 624 , In 916 and In 1323 ), while others had spread globally among various Enterobacteriaceae species (In 110 and In 1209 )...

Here we describe the spread of colistin resistance in clinical isolates of carbapenem-resistant-K. pneumoniae in Medellín, Colombia. Among 32 isolates collected between 2012 and 2014, 24 showed genetic alterations in mgrB Nineteen isolates belonged to ST512 (or its SLV) and harbored a novel 8.1-Kb hsdMSR insertion, indicating a clonal expansion of the resistant strain. The insertion region showed 100% identity to several plasmids, suggesting the colistin resistance is mediated by chromosomal integration of plasmid DNA...

Molecular epidemiologic studies have shown that the dynamics of tuberculosis transmission varies geographically. We sought to determine which strains of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) were infecting household contacts (HHC), and which were causing clusters of tuberculosis (TB) disease in Vitoria-ES, Brazil. A total of 741 households contacts (445 TST +) and 139 index cases were characterized according to the proportion of contacts in each household that had a tuberculin skin test positive: low (LT) (≤40% TST+), high (HT) (≥70% TST+) and (40-70% TST+) intermediate (IT) transmission...

Objectives: KPC-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae are an emerging public health problem around the globe. We defined the combinatorial pharmacodynamics and ability to suppress resistance of two 'old' antibiotics, fosfomycin and colistin, in time-kill experiments and hollow-fibre infection models (HFIM). Methods: Two KPC-2-producing K. pneumoniae isolates were used: one susceptible to both colistin and fosfomycin (KPC 9A: MIC colistin 0.25 mg/L and MIC fosfomycin ≤8 mg/L) and the other resistant to colistin and susceptible to fosfomycin (KPC 5A: MIC colistin 64 mg/L and MIC fosfomycin 32 mg/L)...

Molecular typing using repetitive sequenced-based PCR (rep-PCR) and hsp60 sequencing were applied to a collection of diverse Enterobacter cloacae complex isolates. To determine the most practical method for reference laboratories, we analyzed 71 E. cloacae complex isolates from sporadic and outbreak occurrences originating from 4 geographic areas. While rep-PCR was more discriminating, hsp60 sequencing provided a broader and a more objective geographical tracking method similar to multilocus sequence typing (MLST)...

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), is one of the most prevalent clinical pathogens isolated from hospital settings, and has increasingly identified in community settings. In China, the SCCmecIII-ST239 strains are disseminated in different geographic regions, accounting for >75% of all MRSA isolates in some national studies. Here we characterized 150 non-duplicate MRSA isolates collected from February 2012 to May 2013 in a tertiary hospital in Suzhou, Eastern China, to explore the molecular epidemiology...

Diagnostics are a cornerstone of the practice of infectious diseases. However, various limitations frequently lead to unmet clinical needs. In most other domains, diagnostics focus on narrowly defined questions, provide readily interpretable answers, and use true gold standards for development. In contrast, infectious diseases diagnostics must contend with scores of potential pathogens, dozens of clinical syndromes, emerging pathogens, rapid evolution of existing pathogens and their associated resistance mechanisms, and the absence of gold standards in many situations...

Ceftazidime-avibactam resistance is mediated by blaKPC-3 mutations, which restore carbapenem susceptibility. We subjected Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates with different blaKPC-3 mutations (n = 5) or wild-type blaKPC-3 (n = 2) to serial passages with meropenem. The meropenem MIC against each isolate increased. Mutations in the ompK36 porin gene evolved in 5 isolates. Among isolates with D179Y substitutions in KPC-3, blaKPC-3 mutations reverted to wild type, were replaced by new mutations, or were retained. Carbapenem treatment of ceftazidime-avibactam-resistant K...

Although awareness of tuberculosis among captive elephants is increasing, antituberculosis therapy for these animals is not standardized. We describe Mycobacterium tuberculosis transmission between captive elephants based on whole genome analysis and report a successful combination treatment. Infection control protocols and careful monitoring of treatment of captive elephants with tuberculosis are warranted.
