It has been previously demonstrated that ceftriaxone MICs may exceed those of penicillin for the same strains of S. Ecthyma gangrenosum caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae and Streptococcus vestibularis in a patient with acute myeloid leukemia: Multidrug-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae infections: Categorical agreements fell to With the implementation of the new breakpoints, clinicians may continue to use penicillin for the treatment of non-meningeal pneumococcal infections in preference to other drug classes.

Louis, MO was obtained and reconstituted according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Both the modified Hodge test and the KPC PCR test performed identically, except for the latter’s clsj of a more rapid turnaround time and less dependence on experience with reading the Hodge tests, which are sometimes difficult to read.

The relationship between penicillin resistance and increased mortality or treatment failure remains the subject of debate. Areas marked with horizontal lines represent the number of ceftriaxone-non-susceptible isolates in the respective bars. These recommendations use screening breakpoints currently in the susceptible range, using either ertapenem or meropenem disk diffusion testing or broth dilution susceptibility testing using ertapenem, meropenem, or imipenem.


Identifications were also confirmed using PCR according the method of Hendolin et al. Very major errors were observed in 20 cases Auth with social network: Ertapenem is the least-active carbapenem against KPCs, and the use of this drug in automated or manual susceptibility testing has been found to be a highly sensitive method for the detection of KPCs 1.

Published online Jan Auth with social network: Error rates by category. There has always been an occasional clinical need to test the susceptibility of M.

Thus, the definitions of penicillin susceptibility for pneumococcal bacteraemia or pneumonia should be different to reflect the pharmacokinetics of penicillin and its clinical effectiveness. Of most interest were the considerable rates of nonsusceptibility and resistance to the oral broad-spectrum cephalosporins cefaclor and cefuroxime using the current breakpoints derived from H. A total of 26 isolates did not have an MIC recorded from Vitek 2 and were thus ineligible for the analysis.

With the use of the original penicillin breakpoints, the rate of penicillin non-susceptibility increased significantly from an average of Moraxella catarrhalis is a common commensal and occasionally pathogenic bacterium associated with a range of infections of the respiratory tract, including acute otitis media, acute sinusitis, and acute exacerbations of chronic bronchitis 522 Effects of new penicillin susceptibility breakpoints for Streptococcus pneumoniae – United States, — The numbers of meningeal isolates decreased by half, from 8—10 isolates per year before to 1—5 isolates per year thereafter.


Performance measures for Vitek 2 determination of cefepime susceptibility compared with those of cefepime agar dilution. Support Center Support Center.

Therefore, interpretive criteria were developed using the remaining isolates. We suggest that, until additional studies are conducted or improved methodologies are developed to explain or reduce the observed error rates, clinicians exercise extreme caution in interpreting susceptible cefepime MICs from Vitek 2 as truly susceptible for ESBL-producing E.

PHT Lab 9. The presence of BRO-2 had similar but less-pronounced effects on MIC distributions; for cephalexin and meropenem, it had no detectable effect. Division of Infectious Diseases.

Previous investigations have revealed poor agreement and high error rates for cefepime as determined by automated susceptibility testing AST 1— 6. Carbapenem resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae not detected by automated susceptibility testing.
