  9. Previous antibiotic exposure and antimicrobial resistance in invasive pneumococcal disease: results from prospective surveillance.

    Clinical Infectious Diseases 59(7):944 (2014) PMID 24973312

    Estimating the risk of antibiotic resistance is important in selecting empiric antibiotics. We asked how the timing, number of courses, and duration of antibiotic therapy in the previous 3 months affected antibiotic resistance in isolates causing invasive pneumococcal disease (IPD). We conducted...

  12. Reducing antimicrobial therapy for asymptomatic bacteriuria among noncatheterized inpatients: a proof-of-concept study.

    Clinical Infectious Diseases 58(7):980 (2014) PMID 24577290

    This proof-of-concept study demonstrates that no longer routinely reporting urine culture results from noncatheterized medical and surgical inpatients can greatly reduce unnecessary antimicrobial therapy for asymptomatic bacteriuria without significant additional laboratory workload. Larger stud...

    BMC Infectious Diseases 13:324 (2013) PMID 23865713 PMCID PMC3718660

    C. difficile (CD) real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for toxin B gene (tcdB) is more sensitive, and reduces turnaround time when compared to toxin immunoassay. We noted typical amplification curves with high tcdB cycle thresholds (Ct) and low endpoints (Ept) that are labeled negative by t...
