The road to success of coagulase-negative staphylococci: clinical significance of small colony variants and their pathogenic role in persistent infections

Bacterial small colony variants represent an important aspect of bacterial variability. They are naturally occurring microbial subpopulations with distinctive phenotypic and pathogenic traits, reported for many clinically important bacteria. In …

Correlating genetic mutations with isoniazid phenotypic levels of resistance in Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from patients with drug-resistant tuberculosis in a high burden setting

We analysed mutations in katG, inhA and rpoB genes, and isoniazid phenotypic resistance levels in Mycobacterium tuberculosis isolates from drug-resistant TB patients from São Paulo state, Brazil. Isolates resistant to the critical concentration of …

The ERACE-PA Global Surveillance Program: Ceftolozane/tazobactam and Ceftazidime/avibactam in vitro Activity against a Global Collection of Carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa

The cephalosporin-β-lactamase-inhibitor-combinations, ceftolozane/tazobactam and ceftazidime/avibactam, have revolutionized treatment of carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CR-PA). A contemporary assessment of their in vitro potency …

Evaluation of the InTray and Compact Dry culture systems for the diagnosis of urinary tract infections in patients presenting to primary health clinics in Harare, Zimbabwe

Antimicrobial resistance surveillance data is lacking from many resource-limited settings mainly due to limited laboratory testing. Novel culture systems may address some of the limitations of conventional culture media and expand the availability …

Global molecular epidemiology of carbapenem-resistant Escherichia coli (2002–2017)

The emergence of carbapenem-resistant (CR) Escherichia coli obliges an assessment of such strains’ molecular epidemiology. Accordingly, we characterized in detail a globally distributed collection of CR E. coli isolates, then explored for …

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.
