- A novel case of Raoultella planticola urinary tract infection. Olson, D.; Asare, K.; Lyons, M.; Hofinger, D. // Infection;Feb2013, Vol. 41 Issue 1, p259
Raoultella species are Gram-negative, non-motile bacilli primarily considered to be environmental bacteria (Bagley et al.; Curr Microbiol 6:105-109, ). R. planticola has rarely been documented as a cause of human infections and has never been reported to cause urinary tract infections. We report...

- Early intervention with empirical antibacterials is essential in the treatment of ventilator-associated pneumonia. // Drugs & Therapy Perspectives;Jun2011, Vol. 27 Issue 6, p9
Ventilator-associated pneumonia is common in patients in intensive care units. As treatment usually cannot wait until the causative organism has been identified, empirical antibacterial therapy should be initiated based on risk factors for virulent and/or resistant microorganisms.
- Cronobacter: an emerging opportunistic pathogen associated with neonatal meningitis, sepsis and necrotizing enterocolitis. Hunter, C J; Bean, J F // Journal of Perinatology;Aug2013, Vol. 33 Issue 8, p581
Members of the genus Cronobacter are an emerging group of opportunist Gram-negative pathogens. This genus was previously thought to be a single species, called Enterobacter sakazakii. Cronobacter spp. typically affect low-birth-weight neonates, causing life-threatening meningitis, sepsis and...
