Turan Bloodstream Infection Infection of the bloodstream remains a life-threatening occurrence and is most commonly associated with the presence of a central vascular catheter but may also be associated with a gram-negative infection in other areas of the body, such as the lung, genitourinary tract, or abdomen. Jejm Center Support Center. There is avinetobacter much debate about the role of combination therapy versus monotherapy for gram-negative infections. Therefore, we recommend institution-tailored combination therapy for the empirical treatment of serious hospital-acquired gram-negative infections, followed by de-escalation to monotherapy once susceptibilities have been determined.

Infection due to Acinetobacter organisms was established for 16 patients, 6 with septicemia, 9 with pneumonia, and 1 with a wound infection. Further investigations were performed with 38 representative isolates. Twenty-nine isolates were identified as unnamed DNA-DNA hybridization group genomospecies 3, three were identified as genomospecies 2 Acinetobacter baumannii , one was identified as genomospecies 5 Acinetobacter junii , three were identified as genomospecies 14, and two were unclassified.

Eight distinguishable protein profiles, coded I through VIII, were found by cell envelope protein electrophoresis. Profile V, a common profile, was observed for 17 isolates that had been recovered from 11 patients and 1 dust specimen.

These isolates, all of which belonged to genomospecies 3, had similar antibiograms and biotypes. This study has revealed that genomospecies 3 can be associated with infection and be spread in hospitals. Selected References These references are in PubMed.

Abstract Background Acinetobacter baumannii can cause serious healthcare-associated infections HAIs and the incidence is increasing, with many strains now resistant to multiple antibiotic classes. The aims of this study were to examine factors associated with HAIs caused by antimicrobial-resistant as compared with antimicrobial-susceptible strains of A. Electronic data from two U. Multiple logistic regression was used to explore risk factors for infection with A. The Cochran-Armitage trend test was used to explore resistance trends over time.
