A PCR assay for identification of Enterococcus faecium
. Journal of Clinical Microbiology, vol.
Myrophorea, that is effective against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium
(VRE), Klebsiella pneumonia, and carbenepenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumanii.
La cinetica de crecimiento de la cepa 15, que tuvo 99.93% de similaridad a Enterococcus faecium
CGMCC 1.2136T, mostro rapido crecimiento pasando de 5 a 7 log UFC/mL al cabo de tres horas, llegando hasta 8 Log UFC/mL a las 24 horas.
1, Out of 97 samples isolated, 42% were from Enterococcus faecalis, 41% were from Enterococcus faecium
, 3% were from Enterococcus avium, 1% from Enterococcus gallinarum and 11% were from Other Enterococcus Species.
(9) Multiplex PCR using specific ddl E.faecalis and ddl E.faecium genes was performed to identify both Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium
Emergence of epidemic multidrug-resistant Enterococcus faecium
from animal and commensal strains.
A team of researchers at the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity in Melbourne studied Enterococcus faecium
, a strain of bacteria that's a common nuisance in hospitals, but not particularly deadly.
Some hospital bacteria growing 'tolerant' to sanitisersSome hospital superbugs are growing increasingly tolerant to alcohol-based disinfectants found in hand washes and sanitisers, allowing increasing infections to take hold, a study has warned.Researchers have noticed a rise in Enterococcus faecium
, a bacteria that lives in the gut and can be spread via catheters, ventilators or central lines in hospitals.
The strain Enterococcus faecium
T136 produces two bacteriocins: enterocin A, a member of the pediocin family of bacteriocins, and a relatively new bacteriocin called enterocin B.
Four Enterococcus faecalis (3.96%), 2 Enterococcus faecium
(1.98%), 1 Acinetobacter spp.
Se han descrito 49 especies distintas, de las cuales 26 se han asociado con las infecciones en humanos, siendo Enterococcus faecalis y Enterococcus faecium
, las especies mas comunes (5).
Various enterococcal species have been identified, but the major two which cause human diseases are enterococcus faecalis and enterococcus faecium
. Most common and important infections caused by them are bacteraemia, endocarditis, urinary tract infections, surgical wound infections, intra-abdominal and intra-pelvic infections.
