Multidrug resistance microbial therapy | VMRR

Introduction Antimicrobials are the most important and useful therapeutic discovery in the history of medicine. It allows living beings to survive the microbial disease, enhances invasive surgical procedures, ensures animal health, and protects the food chain since 1928 after the discovery of penicillin. However, the indiscriminate use of antibiotics and…

Extensively drug resistant E. coli LZ00114

Introduction Escherichia coli is a common Gram-negative opportunistic pathogen that causes invasive host infections through virulence factors such as flagella, toxin secretion, and adhesins. According to the source of the infection, pathogenic E. coli can be classified as intestinal (diarrheagenic) and extraintestinal (ExPEC). Uropathogenic E. coli (UPEC) is the most…

Emergence of the Coexistence of mcr-1, blaNDM-5, and blaCTX-M-55 in Kl

Introduction Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae) is an opportunistic pathogen and the leading cause of healthcare-associated infections.1 Multidrug-resistant (MDR) K. pneumoniae isolates are rapidly spreading, thus limiting the choice of antimicrobial agents for empiric treatment of infections caused by these microorganisms; hence, this is a public health challenge.2 Polymyxins are last-resort…
