cases of severe community-acquired
pneumonia has become common, complicating treatment with a macrolide, Dr.
Specifically, the researchers say, a key toxin, called LUK-PV, secreted only by community-acquired
MRSA, counteracts the effects of another more deadly toxin, LUK-ED, secreted by both forms of the bacterium.
Nabriva Therapeutics AG, a biotechnology company focused on developing pleuromutilins, a new class of antibiotics for the treatment of serious infections caused by resistant Gram-positive and Gram-negative pathogens, announced today that the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Qualified Infectious Disease Product (QIDP) as well as Fast Track status designation to Nabriva's lead product lefamulin, for the treatment of community-acquired
bacterial pneumonia (CABP) and acute bacterial skin and skin structure infections (ABSSSI).
pneumonia (CAP) is an important cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide, (1) but its incidence in South Africa is unknown.

MONTREAL -- Community-acquired
strains are the most common source of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus colonization and infection in babies in the neonatal intensive care unit, even though they have never left the hospital, researchers have found.
In the recent years there has been a drastic increase in community-acquired
infections, caused by a single strain of ESBL-producing E.
MRSA infections, generally occurring in previously healthy persons without recognizable risk factors for health care setting-related MRSA, are emerging as serious clinical and public health concerns (Bradley, 2005; Drews et al, 2006; Johnston, 1994; Karas et al, 2006; Maltezou & Giamarellou, 2006).
For patients in severe pain or suffering from community-acquired
pneumonia, emergency department (ED) crowding is most likely going to delay treatment for pain and the administration of antibiotics for those with pneumonia--and could prevent these patients from receiving care at all.
Objective: Comparison of genotypes of nosocomially acquired and community-acquired
Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates in a hospital setting will shed light on the genomic relatedness between the 2 populations.
pneumonia and an invasive syndrome of liver abscess, meningitis, or endophthalmitis occurred only in Taiwan and South Africa.
The purportedly resistant strains have included community-acquired
methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) (4,5) and ciprofloxacin-resistant Pseudomonas spp.
