Artificial Klebsiella pneumoniae biofilm model mimicking in vivo system: altered morphological characteristics and antibiotic resistance.
The purpose of this study was to develop a biofilm model of Klebsiella pneumoniae B5055, mimicking in vivo biofilm system so as to determine susceptibility of different phases of biofilm to antibiotics by three-dimensional analysis. Artificial mature

Klebsiella pneumoniae Isolates from Meningitis: Epidemiology, Virulence and Antibiotic Resistance.
Klebsiella pneumoniae (KP) resistance to broad-spectrum cephalosporin (BSC) in meningitis is important because of limited therapeutic options. To investigate the antibiotic resistance, virulence and epidemiology of KP in meningitis, we conducted a re

Increased biofilm formation ability in Klebsiella pneumoniae after short-term exposure to a simulated microgravity environment.
Biofilm formation is closely related to the pathogenetic processes of Klebsiella pneumoniae, which frequently causes infections in immunocompromised individuals. The immune system of astronauts is compromised in spaceflight. Accordingly, K. pneumonia

Colistin resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae.
Increasing use of colistin for multidrug-resistant Gram-negative bacterial infections has led to the emergence of colistin resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae in several countries worldwide, including Europe (especially Greece), and colistin resistan

Suppression of stop codon UGA in acrB can contribute to antibiotic resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae ATCC10031.
We previously reported that Klebsiella pneumoniae MGH78578 exhibited higher resistance against various antimicrobials than K. pneumoniae ATCC10031. In this study, we showed that the plasmid, pKPN5 in K. pneumoniae MGH78578 played an important role in

Relationship between Antibiotic Resistance, Biofilm Formation, and Biofilm-Specific Resistance in Acinetobacter baumannii.
In this study, we aimed to examine the relationships between antibiotic resistance, biofilm formation, and biofilm-specific resistance in clinical isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii. The tested 272 isolates were collected from several hospitals in C

Susceptibility of catheter-related Klebsiella pneumoniae strains to quaternary ammonium compounds under biofilm and planktonic conditions
Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the susceptibility of catheter-related Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates to two biocides (benzalkonium chloride and Deconex) under biofilm and planktonic conditions. Methods: A total of 85 strains of K

Klebsiella pneumoniae yfiRNB operon affects biofilm formation, polysaccharide production and drug susceptibility.
Klebsiella pneumoniae is an opportunistic pathogen important in hospital-acquired infections, which are complicated by the rise of drug-resistant strains and the capacity of cells to adhere to surfaces and form biofilms. In this work, we carried out

Evaluation of Biofilm Formation Among Klebsiella pneumoniae Isolates and Molecular Characterization by ERIC-PCR.
Klebsiella pneumoniae is among the most frequently recovered etiologic agents from nosocomial infections. This opportunistic pathogen can generate a thick layer of biofilm as one of its important virulence factors, enabling the bacteria to attach to

Molecular Analysis of Antibiotic Resistance Determinants and Plasmids in Malaysian Isolates of Multidrug Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae.
Infections caused by multidrug resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae have been increasingly reported in many parts of the world. A total of 93 Malaysian multidrug resistant K. pneumoniae isolated from patients attending to University of Malaya Medical Cent
