Ceftazidime–avibactam treatment in bacteremia caused by OXA-48 carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae

Therapeutic options for bacteremia caused by carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales (CRE) OXA-48-type are limited. The objective of this study was to analyze clinical success of CAZ-AVI compared with best available therapy (BAT) in patients with …

Implementation of Chromatic Super CAZ/AVI® medium for active surveillance of ceftazidime-avibactam resistance: preventing the loop from becoming a spiral

Acquired resistance towards ceftazidime-avibactam (CAZ-AVI) is increasingly reported. Several mechanisms can be involved, but mutations in the Ω-loop region of β-lactamases are the most described. Herein, we assessed the implementation of …

Über diese Zeitschrift

EJCMID is an interdisciplinary journal devoted to the publication of communications on infectious diseases of bacterial, viral and parasitic origin.

The journal welcomes full articles presenting original research results, invited editorials, and reviews on the following topics:

  • General epidemiology and diagnostics of infectious agents
  • Clinical infectious diseases research
  • Genetics and phenotypes of host susceptibility towards infectious disease or colonization
  • Use of animal models to study bacterial infections and the imaging of such infections

Studies should primarily be performed from a mechanistic point of view with emphasis on the inter-relatedness of molecular features with clinical presentation of infections. Papers on the translational application of basic research findings will be prioritized.
