En el presente trabajo, dentro de la comunidad bacteriana cultivable, se han identificado tanto los generos mas representativos de zonas contaminadas con cianuro (Pseudomonas, Alcaligenes, Bacillus y Acinetobacter), como generos bacterianos poco reportados en otros estudios (Sphingobacterium, Paenibacillus y Stenotrophomonas), lo que permite conocer mas acerca de las comunidades bacterianas cultivables presentes en estas zonas contaminadas, estudiar a mayor profundidad su funcion en estos nichos, y revelar sus posibles aplicaciones en procesos de tratamiento de zonas afectadas por la actividad minera.
The in vitro activity of Xerava was compared to a variety of other antibiotics against a total of 15,887 Gram-negative and Gram-positive pathogens and showed that Xerava was more active than meropenem and piperacillin-tazobactam against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Enterococcus faecium, vancomycin-resistant enterococci, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia and Acinetobacter baumannii.
[36] However, FQs are used as carbapenem-sparing agents for extended-spectrum beta-lactamase producers if they are sensitive, and along with TMP/SMX are also valuable for the treatment of organisms such as Stenotrophomonas maltophilia and Burkholderia cepacia.
Kotsanas and Gillespie (2016) tested the zone of inhibition and contact inhibition against a range of microorganisms including gram negative: extended-spectrum[beta]-lactamase Escherichia coli, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa; and gram positive: methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus, vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus faecium, and coagulase-negative staphylococci), Candida albicans, and spores of Clostridium difficile.
No growth of Stenotrophomonas maltophilia on cough plates was observed.
Other pathogens, like Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella species, Escherichia coli, Neisseria meningitidis, Stenotrophomonas maltophilia, Aspergillus, Candida, Fusarium, and Rhizopus may also be causal agents [1].
Ms Freeman offered her "sincere condolences to the family and friends of the individual who died a result of contracting the Stenotrophomonas maltophilia infection."
A small study with facial swabs pointed out that Stenotrophomonas maltophilia was significantly more common in the 13 atopic dermatitis patients tested whereas Dietzia maris was significantly more common in the 10 healthy controls.
Consortium was prepared from Bacillus cereus (Acc KF859972), Bacillus altitudinis(Acc KF859970), commomonas (Acc KF859971) belonging to family Comamonadaceae and Stenotrophomonas maltophilia (Acc KF859973).
Out of 1023 GNB, 428 were Acinetobacter species,284 were Klebsiella species,225 were Pseudomonas species, 29 were E.coli, 3 Proteus spp, 6 Citrobacter spp, 6 Enterobacter spp, 20 Serratia, 14 Stenotrophomonas, 6 Burkholderia spp and 2 Morganella spp.
