Epidemiology of glycopeptide-resistant enterococci colonizing high risk patients in hospitals in Johannesburg, Republic of South Africa.
dagger]) Patient carrying an ESBL producer in addition to the carbapenemase-producing bacteria and/or glycopeptide-resistant enterococci.
From August 1998 to October 1999, glycopeptide-resistant enterococci (GRE) were isolated from 23 infected patients at a teaching hospital in Medellin, Colombia.
Since the initial discovery of glycopeptide-resistant enterococci (GRE) in the United Kingdom (18), nosocomial isolates of GRE have been reported from around the world (14); these isolates have also been found in healthy people in the community outside the hospital (19).
To the Editor: Glycopeptide-resistant enterococci infections are a major problem in hospitals.
To the Editor: Avilamycin and evernimicin (Ziracine), which belong to the everninomicin class of drugs, are oligosaccharide antibiotics active against numerous gram-positive bacteria, including emerging pathogens such as glycopeptide-resistant enterococci, methicillin-resistant staphylococci, and penicillin-resistant pneumococci (1,2).
Enterococci are ubiquitous in humans and animals and have a propensity for uptake and transfer of glycopeptide antibiotic resistance (3); therefore, the emergence of glycopeptide-resistant enterococci (ORE) in humans is a public health concern.
The increase in the incidence of glycopeptide-resistant enterococci (GRE) isolated from hospitalized patients throughout the United States has not been observed in France.
The incidence of enterobacteria producing extended-spectrum [Beta]-lactamases and glycopeptide-resistant enterococci remains rather low in France, as in most other European countries.
