Candida auris: Epidemiology, risk factors, virulence, resistance, and therapeutic options
Candida auris emerged as a pathogen resistant to multiple antifungal and has been associated with nosocomial outbreaks with high transmission capacity between hospitalized individuals. C. auris was first described in 2009, ...
Colonization pressure and risk factors for acquisition of imipenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii in a medical surgical intensive care unit in Brazil
We studied a nonconcurrent cohort of 582 patients admitted to a medical-surgical intensive care unit. Use of antimicrobials (imipenem and metronidazole) was a risk factor for acquisition of imipenem-resistant Acinetobacter ...
Glyphosate resistance in Sorghum halepense and Lolium rigidum is reduced at suboptimal growing temperatures
BACKGROUND: Glyphosate resistance in populations of the C4 perennial Sorghum halepense (Johnsongrass) and C3 annual Lolium rigidum (rigid ryegrass) has evolved and been documented in many cropping areas around the globe. ...
Risk factors that impact resistant weed selection.

Evaluation of Electrical Resistivity in a Tropical Sandy Soil Compacted
The utilization of electrical resistivity is a technique that leads to improve the sampling of environmental works. The bulk resistivity considers the three phases of soil mechanics theory and their intervening factors ...
Prevalence, Risk Factors, and Treatment Outcomes of Isoniazid- and Rifampicin-Mono-Resistant Pulmonary Tuberculosis in Lima, Peru
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
BACKGROUND: Isoniazid and rifampicin are the two most efficacious first-line agents for tuberculosis (TB) treatment. We assessed the prevalence of isoniazid and rifampicin mono-resistance, associated risk factors, and the ...
Genetic factors involved in resistance to infectious diseases in salmonids and their application in breeding programmes Factores genéticos que inciden en la resistencia a enfermedades infecciosas en salmónidos y su aplicación en programas de mejoramiento
The control of infectious diseases is essential in the success of salmon aquaculture. Genetic improvement of disease resistance may provide a feasible and sustainable option for the management of these diseases. Marker-assisted ...
Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA): molecular background, virulence, and relevance for public health
(Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP), Centro de Estudos de Venenos e Animais Peçonhentos (CEVAP), 2011-01-01)
Staphylococcus aureus and coagulase-negative Staphylococcus (CoNS) are frequently found in nosocomial environments as the main pathogen in several infections. In 1961, reports of nosocomial S. aureus resistant to methicillin, ...
