Penicillin was first used in a clinical setting in:
Which antibiotic is the best to be used to detect Methicillin-resistant (MRSA)?
The expression of an Extended spectrum Beta-lactamase (ESBL) confers resistance to which class of antibiotics?
Which of the following enzymes is not a carbapenemase?
WHO estimates that if no action is taken now, by 2050 how many deaths will be due to drug-resistant diseases?
There are a number of antibacterial resistance mechanisms.Select a typical mechanism from the following:
Which plasmid-encoded ligases are responsible for clinically-relevant vancomycin and/or teicoplanin resistance in vancomycin resistant Enterococci (VREs)?
ESBLs are a group of enzymes that confer resistance to Penicillins, Cephalosporins and Aztreonam by splitting the amide bond of the antibiotic's β-lactam ring.
Carbapenemases are enzymes that are capable of degrading almost all β-lactam antimicrobials, including carbapenems.However one enzyme exhibits weak activity to expanded-spectrum cephalosporins.Which one is it?
When deciding on the best treatment options, one needs to consider:
