KPC-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae strains that harbor AAC(6')-Ib exhibit intermediate resistance to amikacin.

The aminoglycoside-modifying enzyme AAC(6')-Ib is common among carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CR-Kp) strains. We investigated amikacin (A...

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

Multidrug Resistance Mechanisms of Carbapenem Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae Strains Isolated in Chongqing, China.
Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKP) is considered a serious global threat. However, little is known regarding the multidrug resistance (MDR) mechanisms of CRKP. This study investigated the phenotypes and MDR mechanisms of CRKP and ident

Decreasing level of resistance in invasive Klebsiella pneumoniae strains isolated in Marseille, January 2012-July 2015.
Klebsiella pneumoniae is a Gram-negative bacterial species well known for its capacity to cause infections in humans, and to carry and spread a wide variety of resistance genes including extended-spectrum beta-lactamase genes, carbapenem resistance g

Antibiotic Resistance Related to Biofilm Formation in Klebsiella pneumoniae.
The Gram-negative opportunistic pathogen, Klebsiella pneumoniae, is responsible for causing a spectrum of community-acquired and nosocomial infections and typically infects patients with indwelling medical devices, especially urinary catheters, on wh

Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae strains exhibit diversity in aminoglycoside-modifying enzymes, which exert differing effects on plazomicin and other agents.
We measured in vitro activity of plazomicin, a next-generation aminoglycoside, and other aminoglycosides against 50 carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae strains from two centers and correlated the results with the presence of various aminoglyco

mcr-1 Colistin Resistance in ESBL-Producing Klebsiella pneumoniae, France.
We report intestinal carriage of an extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae strain with high-level resistance to colistin (MIC 24 mg/L) in a patient in France who had been hospitalized for fungal meningitis. The strain had the m

Antimicrobial resistance of Klebsiella pneumoniae stool isolates circulating in Kenya.
We sought to determine the genetic and phenotypic antimicrobial resistance (AMR) profiles of commensal Klebsiella spp. circulating in Kenya by testing human stool isolates of 87 K. pneumoniae and three K. oxytoca collected at eight locations. Over on

Mechanisms of tigecycline resistance among Klebsiella pneumoniae clinical isolates.
Of 26 tigecycline-nonsusceptible Klebsiella pneumoniae (TNSKP) clinical isolates, 25 had nonsynonymous mutations in ramR and/or acrR (23 in ramR and 10 in acrR). Eight TNSKP isolates possessed overexpression of ramA, acrB, rarA, and oqxB simultaneous

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
