Decreased susceptibility to ciprofloxacin among Shigella isolates in the United States, 2006 to 2009

Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy

Jan 12, 2011

Jason P FolsterJean M Whichard

Abstract

We characterized 20 Shigella isolates with decreased susceptibility to fluoroquinolones. Most patients (80%) from whom a travel history was obtained reported travel to South or Southeast Asia. Mutations within the quinolone resistance determining regions of gyrA and parC and plasmid-med...read more

CRISPR Screens in Drug Resistance

CRISPR-Cas system enables the editing of genes to create or correct mutations. This feed focuses on the application of CRISPR-Cas system in high-throughput genome-wide screens to identify genes that may confer drug resistance.

Quinolones (ASM)

Quinolones are a class of broad-spectrum antibiotics used against a wide range of bacteria. Examples include lomefloxacin, ofloxacin, and norfloxacin. Discover the latest research on quinolones and their derivatives in this feed.

Antifungals (ASM)

An antifungal, also known as an antimycotic medication, is a pharmaceutical fungicide or fungistatic used to treat and prevent mycosis such as athlete's foot, ringworm, candidiasis, cryptococcal meningitis, and others. Discover the latest research on antifungals here.

Cephalosporins (ASM)

Cephalosporins are a class of beta-lactam antibiotics used for prophylaxis and treatment of infections caused by bacteria susceptible to these antibiotics, including gram-positive bacteria Staphylococcus and Streptococcus. More recent generations of this drug class also exhibits some activity against gram-negative bacteria. Here is the latest research.

Multi-drug resistance or multiresistance is antimicrobial resistance shown by a species of microorganism to multiple antimicrobial drugs. Discover the latest research on multi-drug resistance here.

Shigellosis

Shigellosis is an infection of the intestines caused by Shigella bacteria. Signs and symptoms may range from mild abdominal discomfort to full-blown dysentery characterized by cramps, diarrhea, with slimy-consistent stools, fever, blood, pus, or mucus in stools or tenesmus. Discover the latest research on shigellosis here.

Vitamin K Carboxylase & Antibiotics

Vitamin K-dependent carboxylases generate gamma-carboxyglutamic acids with malonate moieties by modifying glutamate residues in vitamin K-dependent proteins. This feed focuses on cellular mechanisms regulated by vitamin K-dependent carboxylases.
