Pearson Chi-square test and odds ratio (OR) were used to assess risk factors associated with ESBL infection.
Kirby-Bauer disc diffusion method was used for antimicrobial sensitivity testing and Double Disc Synergy Test (DDST), Phenotypic Confirmatory Disc Diffusion Test (PCDDT) and Epsilometer (E) test was used for the detection of ESBL production.
(26) The aim of our study was to identify and evaluate the genetic profile of resistance associated with ESBL enzymes in infections in critical patient units of the most complex hospital in southern Chile.
other ESBL types) were more likely to have handled live poultry (adjusted odds ratio 4.6, 95% CI 1.1-19.3), but this exposure was uncommon (11/88).
coli isolates had a smaller difference (less than 5 mm) in zone of inhibition around the combined disk than around the ceftazidime disc alone and thus they were considered to be non ESBL producer.
(8) This retrospective study aims to identify the risk factors of infection caused by ESBL-producing bacteria at the KAASH, Taif, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and to identify the different types of ESBL enzymes that are found using PCR methods.
MBL-ESBL-AmpC Co-existence Detection strips, HIMEDIA (EM 134--MBL + ESBL detection strip and EM 135--MBL + AmpC detection strip) used in this study and composition was given in the Fig.
(1) However, the emergence of multiple-drug resistant (MDR) strains, particularly extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) producing strains, has become a global healthcare concern.
Bacterial isolates were screened for ESBL enzymes using the double disc diffusion method as previously described with 30 pg ceftazidime and cefotaxime discs (Abtek Biologicals Ltd, Liverpool, UK) used as the indicator cephalosporins (13).
