The emergence of VRE
is a major problem in management of hospital acquired infections.
The retrospective case-control study was conducted at Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (SKMCHandRC), Lahore, Pakistan, and comprised data of cancer patients whose blood culture grew either vancomycin-sensitive enterococcus (VSE) or VRE
from January 2012 to December 2014.
We report on the first identification of VRE
infections in the paediatric oncology ward at a tertiary-level paediatric hospital in Cape Town, SA, over two time periods in 2013.
For example, there are specific Iraq and Afghanistan models for VRE

are the third most common cause of health-care-associated infections, despite the fact that they are generally considered to be indolent pathogens (CDC, 1999).
Patients with newly detected VRE
colonization during routine surveillances for gastrointestinal VRE
colonization were included in this study.
Contrary to the prevailing belief that tiny electrical charges on the surface of VRE
cells repel the antibiotic, the researchers report that the VRE
cells actually divert the antibiotic and "trap" it to an area where it is rendered ineffective.
it was observed that all MRSA and VRE
isolates were susceptible to tigecycline by Disc Diffusion method and E-test method.
4 The most common method to detect VRE
isolates is the culture based methods that take 1-5 days.
Given the wide scope of this definition, determining what is and what is not a VRE
can be challenging.
