Objective: The emergence of ESBL producing Enterobacter cloacae in clinical isolates is posing a serious threat for treating nosocomial infections.
The swab analyzed 35 patients for E coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Enterobacter cloacae, Proteus mirabilis, and Morganella morganii; these patients previously tested positive for MDR Gram-negative bacteria in clinical cultures.
Las especies de Morganella mostraron sensibilidad a carbapenemes y quinolonas; Proteus vulgaris a quinolonas, carbapenemes y cefalosporinas de tercera generacion; Escherichia coli a quinolonas, aminoglucosidos, aztreonam y carbapenemes; Enterobacter cloacae a quinolonas, carbapenemes, aminoglucosidos; Enterococcus sp a ampicilina; y Corynebacterium sp y Staphylococcus sp (coagulasa negativo) a vancomicina.
Only one isolate of Enterobacter cloacae produced inducible [beta]-lactamase as tested by cefoxitin disc antagonism test.
Citrobacter freundii and Enterobacter cloacae were recovered most frequently (from 28 percent of samples).
In the past, one private laboratory in Johannesburg, which participated in the SENTRY international antimicrobial surveillance programme, (3) documented the prevalence rate of ESBL production in Enterobacter cloacae from hospitalised patients at 20% (N = 11/54), and oxacillin resistance in blood culture isolates of nosocomially acquired S.
Dentro de la familia Enterobacteriaceae: Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae y Enterobacter cloacae han logrado porcentajes de resistencia significantes para los [beta]-lactamicos a excepcion de imipenem y meropenen, cefoperazone sulbactam, cefepime y piperacilina tazobactam (7).
De las anteriores bacterias, las que han sido citadas en la literatura como presentes en el tracto del vampiro son Enterobacter cloacae y P.
In 1 of 3 urine specimens containing Klebsiella pneumoniae and the single specimen containing Enterobacter cloacae, a gradual disappearance of EtG was also observed after storage at 22[degrees]C, but the rate of EtG hydrolysis was slower than for most specimens with E.
Other organisms included Enterobacter cloacae, Enterococcus faecalis, and Proteus mirabilis.
actinomycetemcomitans, y un prevalente virus oral, el herpes Simplex tipo 1 hasta por 72 horas, mientras un bacilo enterico superinfectante como el Enterobacter cloacae permanecio viable hasta por 16 dias en los cepillos dentales (5).
