Prosthetic joint infections (PJI) are severe complications in Orthopedics, with Staphylococcus aureus and Staphylococcus epidermidis being the most commonly isolated pathogens. The variable antimicrobial susceptibility found in these microorganisms, along with the increasing number of methicillin-resistant strains, increases the difficulty of antibiotic selection and makes it necessary to perform individual susceptibility studies to select the optimal antibiotic treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the in vitro susceptibility pattern of 35 clinical strains isolated from PJI (17 S...

Antibiotic resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae strains is an increasing problem in a lot of hospitals. It is a public health emergency because it relates with high mortality rate among patients in Intensive Care Unit (ICU). From 1/1/2009 to 31/08/2010, in ICU of SS Annunziata Hospital of Taranto, 140 isolated Klebsiella pneumoniae strains were detected. The strain identification and antimicrobial susceptibility testing were performed using a Vitek2 automated system. These isolate showed a low level of susceptibility to levofloxacin (3...

Bacterial multi-drugs systems contribute to the development of multi-resistance patterns of Acinetobacter baumannii, a nosocomial pathogen of increasing importance due to its emerging resistance to carbapenems. The multi-resistance phenomena is generated by a combination of mechanisms, one of which the efflux pump system. Many of these multiresistant isolates of A. baumannii harbor genes for the AdeABC multi-drug efflux system, related with resistance to various groups of antibacterial agents, including tygecicline and meropenem...
