Temocillin susceptibility in Enterobacterales with an ESBL/AmpC phenotype

Michael Kresken, Yvonne Pfeifer & Guido Werner
Carbapenems are considered the drugs of choice for first-line treatment of severe infections caused by carbapenem-susceptible, extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBL)-producing Enterobacterales, while piperacillin-tazobactam has been recommended as an alternative for treatment of non-severe infections. Temocillin is stable to ESBL and AmpC enzymes and may thus represent another treatment option. This study assessed the in vitro activity of piperacillin-tazobactam and temocillin against third-generation cephalosporin (3GC)-resistant Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae, as compared to 3GC-susceptible isolates of either...

Acute respiratory infections (ARI) are one of the most common human diseases in the world with high morbidity and mortality. Viruses have a major role in the occurrence of this disease. The aim of this study was to inventory the viruses responsible for ARI in central Côte d’Ivoire. A prospective study was conducted from January 2018 to December 2019 in central Côte d’Ivoire among patients with ARI. Nasopharyngeal secretions were collected and analyzed using multiplex...

Interrogating discordance resolves relationships in the rapid radiation of Old World fruit bats (Chiroptera: Pteropodidae)

The family Pteropodidae (Old World fruit bats) comprises >200 species distributed across the Old World tropics and subtropics. Most pteropodids feed on fruit, suggesting an early origin of frugivory, although several lineages have shifted to nectar-based diets. Pteropodids are of exceptional conservation concern with >50% of species considered threatened, yet the systematics of this group has long been debated, with uncertainty surrounding early splits attributed to an ancient rapid diversification. Resolving the relationships among the...
