Pseudomonas aeruginosa Positivity and Sensitivity in Invasive Bloodstream Infections Using Automated Bactec in Tertiary Care Teaching Hospital of North India: A Prospective Observational Study

Background: Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a gram-negative aerobic bacillus that is frequently found in the differential diagnosis of a variety of possible hospital-acquired diseases. Pseudomonas aeruginosa-related mortality in bloodstream infections (BSIs) is still a major problem. The goal of this study is to use automated Bactec systems to detect Pseudomonas positive and sensitivity in invasive bloodstream…

Utility of Serum Procalcitonin as a Biomarker to Determine the Duration of Antibiotic Therapy in Adult Patients with Sepsis and Septic Shock in Intensive Care Units

Background: Procalcitonin is a biomarker used to determine the length of antibiotic therapy in sepsis patients. The severity of systemic infection and the existence of organ failure are linked to the degree of Procalcitonin induction. As a result, PCT is considered a helpful biomarker for the diagnosis of sepsis, and new research suggests that dynamic…

Determination Coagulase-nagative Staphylococcus and Antibiotic Susceptibility Patterns in Cases of Sepsis in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of Amiens-Picardie University Hospital (France)

Newborn sepsis is the most dangerous infection seen in the neonatal intensive care unit, with significant rates of morbidity and fatality. In this study, we looked at coagulase-negative Staphylococcus bacteria and their antibiotic susceptibility profiles in neonatal sepsis cases that were clinically indicated. The study’s goals were to determine the importance of coagulasenegative Staphylococcus strains…

Antimicrobial Resistance- Combining the Sciences of Microbiology and Public Health: A Theoretical Approach

When bacteria, viruses, protozoa, and fungi are subjected to selective pressure, antimicrobial resistance emerges as a result. Bacterial resistance, on the other hand, is causing increased concern due to its rapid development, the abundance of germs, the prevalence of bacterial infections, disinfectant usage, environmental contaminants, and antibacterial drug addiction. There is a global appeal and…

Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing of Anaerobic Bacteria: A Mini-Review

Obligate anaerobic bacteria play a pivotal role in humans’ microbiota and are essential infectious agents, both in immunocompetent and immunocompromised persons, involved in several pathological processes. Their isolation, cultivation and accurate identification vary greatly from the work of aerobic organisms, while anaerobic diagnostics have improved drastically with the use of new technologies ( e.g., matrix-assisted…

Antimicrobial Peptides: A Promising Answer to Antimicrobial Resistance

The steady decrease in the therapeutic effectiveness of available pharmaceutical products due to the spread of antimicrobial resistance underscores the need to create new groups of antimicrobial agents to treat infectious diseases. This urgency has inspired researchers to discover a relatively new and sustainable tool called host-defense peptides, also called antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), to fight…
