In this article, carbapenem antimicrobial susceptibility testing profiles were determined in a population of Klebsiella pneumoniae, and their resistance assessed based on previous and current Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute criteria.

Researchers have analyzed the microbiomes of flies, suggesting that these insects could have more disease-carrying potential than previously thought.
Nontuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) are increasingly recognized as important opportunistic pathogens of humans, the authors dicuss the clinical managment and treatments for nontuberculous mycobacterial infections.
Researchers have unveiled novel pathways controlled by the multiple antibiotic resistance operon and identified new ways in which bacteria protect themselves against antibiotics.
As part of our focus around World Antibiotic Awareness Week (13–19 November) we spoke to Professor Jonathan Cooke, a pharmacologist and pharmacist based in the UK who holds a special interest in antimicrobial resistance. He shares his thoughts on this pressing issue below:
In this infographic we summarize the clinical candidates reported by the WHO – indicating which diseases they are active (or possibly active) against, whether they’re considered innovative and which Phase the trials are currently in.
For the first time, researchers have employed an electroceutical technique – using electric field-based dressings – to manage biofilm infections. Understanding how this technique could influence host–microbe interactions will be pivotal in its application to wound healing in humans.
