In: The Lancet Infectious Diseases, 2017, vol. 17, no. 2, p. 153–163

Gaps in the diagnostic capacity and heterogeneity of national surveillance and reporting standards in Europe make it difficult to contain carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae. We report the development of a consistent sampling framework and the results of the first structured survey on the occurrence of carbapenemase- producing Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli in European...

In vitro activity of ceftazidime, ceftaroline and aztreonam alone and in combination with avibactam against European Gram-negative and Gram-positive clinical isolates

Testa, Raymond ; Cantón, Rafael ; Giani, Tommaso ; Morosini, María-Isabel ; Nichols, Wright W. ; Seifert, Harald ; Stefanik, Danuta ; Rossolini, Gian Maria ; Nordmann, Patrice

In: International Journal of Antimicrobial Agents, 2015, vol. 45, no. 6, p. 641–646

Recent clinical isolates of key Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria were collected in 2012 from hospitalised patients in medical centres in four European countries (France, Germany, Italy and Spain) and were tested using standard broth microdilution methodology to assess the impact of 4 mg/L avibactam on the in vitro activities of ceftazidime, ceftaroline and aztreonam. Against...
