Presentation title: The Novel ??lactamase Inhibitor Enmetazobactam is More Potent than Tazobactam against ESBL?producing Enterobacteriaceae
The emergence of carbapenem resistance, mostly associated with Enterobacteriaceae
, raised with the ability of rapid clonal distribution due to its presence on mobile elements such as plasmids.5,7 There are random reports of the isolation of blaNDM-1 from different parts of Pakistan.5,8,9 However, such studies have never been reported from the province of Balochistan.
Preclinical results showed that cefepime/VNRX-5133 showed potent in vitro activity against all Enterobacteriaceae
, with an MIC90of 0.5 mg/L, compared to cefepime, levofloxacin, meropenem, and piperacillin-tazobactam (MIC90 values >128, >4, 4, >64 mg/L, respectively).
[ClickPress, Mon Jun 24 2019] Enterobacteriaceae
are a family of germs that most commonly live in a person's bowel without causing any disease.
"When we look at the genome content, it turns out that these Enterobacteriaceae
species have larger genomes than other oral bacteria, giving them the capacity to tap into more diverse energy sources," said Dr Xuesong He, a co-author of the study.
producing extended-spectrum [beta]-lactamases (ESBLs) have the ability to hydrolyze penicillins, first-second- and 3rd generation cephalosporins and aztreonam.
are found in the gut and are generally harmless, however, if they spread to the blood stream they can cause meningitis or if they reach the lungs, they can cause pneumonia.
Helperby also presented preclinical data which shows that AZT is active against carbapenem and colistin resistant Enterobacteriaceae
. AZT is a DNA chain terminator and represents a new class of antibacterial agent against the most resistant Gram-negative bacteria.
family was a cause to study the prevalence of genes associated with serum resistance among Enterobacteriaceae
isolates in Babylon province as an indicator for appearance of resistance of Enterobacteriaceae
Global spread of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae

The aim of this document is to provide a minimum requirement for the laboratory detection of carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae
(CPE) in New Zealand and to ensure laboratories can identify when confirmatory testing, referral of isolates, and notification to clinical and infection prevention teams is required.
A study by HIQA has found Our Lady's Crumlin failed to routinely inspect for Carbapenemase Producing Enterobacteriaceae
Members of the family Enterobacteriaceae
harboring extended-spectrum [beta]-Lactamases (ESBLs) are playing a major role in this development.
