[IN VITRO SENSITIVITY OF PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOSA STRAINS AND ITS CLINICAL CONSEQUENCES IN HUNGARY]

LUDWIG Endre, KONKOLY Thege Marianne

[INTRODUCTION - The antibiotic sensitivity of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates in nosocomial infections was determined in a prospective multicenter study in Hungary. METHODS - The sensitivity of 441 nonduplicated Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates were determined by E-test methodology. Antibiotic sensitivities were determined according to the NCCLS standard. RESULTS - The sensitivity of isolates decreased compared to the results of 2000 surveillance data (meropenem 83 vs 76%, imipenem 82 vs 67%,... tovább »

[CHANGES IN SENSITIVITY OF NOSOCOMIAL GRAM-NEGATIVE PATHOGENS TO MEROPENEM AND ITS COMPARATIVE AGENTS DURING A FOUR-YEAR PERIOD (2000-2004) - ANALYSIS OF DATA FROM TWO PROSPECTIVE MULTICENTER STUDIES IN HUNGARY]

KONKOLY Thege Marianne, BÁN Éva, LUDWIG Endre

[INTRODUCTION - The clinical significance of Gram-negative infections has not diminished in recent years. The number of resistant and multiresistant isolates has increased among Gramnegatives similarly to Gram-positive bacteria. Moreover, panresistant strains (i.e. resistant to all available agents active against Gram-negatives) have emerged. A prospective, multicenter study carried out in 2000 was repeated in 2004 in order to have up to date knowledge of resistance situation of Gram-negative... tovább »
