and procedures for UTI surveillance, diagnosis, and urinary catheter and incontinence care. Results: UTI s were the second most common infections in the 87 participating NH s (prevalence: 1.0%). ...

Fluoroquinolone resistance in Escherichia coli isolates after exposure to non-fluoroquinolone antibiotics: a retrospective case–control study

data collected retrospectively in a case–control study linking microbiological test results (isolated bacteria and their susceptibility) of urine samples routinely collected from primary, secondary and ...

Deep amplicon sequencing for culture-free prediction of susceptibility or resistance to 13 anti-tuberculous drugs.

phenotypic results involved pyrazinamide, ethambutol, and ethionamide, and low-level rifampicin- or isoniazid-resistance mutations, all notoriously prone to phenotypic testing variability. Only 2 of 91 (2.2%) ...

consumption were pooled. Detailed data on HAI s were analysed for ECDC- PPS. Results: Overall, 110 Belgian acute care hospital sites participated in the ECDC and Global- PPS (countrywide participation rate: ...

Superficial mycoses in Belgium: Burden, costs and antifungal drugs consumption

disability‐adjusted life years (DALY). Moreover, trends in systemic and topical antifungal consumption in ambulatory care were examined for the period 2010‐2017, together with their associated costs. Results Due to ...

Antimicrobial prescribing by Belgian dentists in ambulatory care, from 2010 to 2016.

was calculated. RESULTS: In 2016, the dentistry-related prescribing rate of ‘Antibacterials for systemic use’ (J01) and ‘Antiprotozoals’ (P01AB) was 1.607 and 0.014 DID, respectively. From 2010 to 2016, the DID ...

Antimicrobial use in European acute care hospitals: results from the second point prevalence survey (PPS) of healthcare-associated infections and antimicrobial use, 2016 to 2017

antimicrobial use Healthcare-associated infection Abstract: Antimicrobial agents used to treat infections are life-saving. Overuse may result in more frequent adverse effects and emergence of multidrug-resistant ...

Time trend of prevalence and susceptibility to nitrofurantoin of urinary MDR Escherichia coli from outpatients

nitrofurantoin was compared between 2005 and 2011-12 using a generalized estimating equation model. Results:  MDR status could be determined for 9704 and 12512 urinary E. coli isolates from 7911 and 9441 patients ...
