    Eur J Clin Microbiol Infect Dis 32:1571-8. 2013
    ..Eight isolates (0.8 %) were misidentified as a different species in the correct genus. The VITEK MS system provides reliable mass spectrometric identifications for Enterobacteriaceae...

    Sandra S Richter
    Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio 44195, USA
    Emerg Infect Dis 19:1074-83. 2013
    ..These data show that introduction of the 7-valent vaccine has dramatically decreased prevalence of its serotypes and that addition of serotypes in PCV13 could provide coverage of 39% of isolates that continue to cause disease...

    Department of Clinical Pathology, Cleveland Clinic, 9500 Euclid Avenue, L40, Cleveland, OH 44195, USA
    Antimicrob Agents Chemother 55:4154-60. 2011
    ..Ceftaroline demonstrated potent in vitro activity against recent S. aureus clinical isolates, including MRSA, daptomycin-nonsusceptible, and linezolid-resistant strains...
  4. pmc Detection of Staphylococcus aureus isolates with heterogeneous intermediate-level resistance to vancomycin in the United States
    Sandra S Richter
    Department of Clinical Pathology Cleveland Clinic, 9500 Euclid Avenue L40, Cleveland, OH 44195, USA

    ..5% of isolates with vancomycin MICs of 2 μg/ml and 0.1% of isolates with vancomycin MICs of 1 μg/ml. The positive predictive value of GRD Etest for hVISA was 16.2% for initial screen positive and 24.4% for reproducibly positive results...

    Cleveland Clinic, Cleveland, Ohio, USA
    J Clin Microbiol 51:4193-5. 2013
    ..PCR agreed with Quellung reaction results for 99% of isolates. The sequential PCR/Quellung reaction algorithm is accurate and more cost-effective than the conventional approach. ..

    ..HL mupirocin resistance increased from 2.2% in 2009 to 3.2% in 2011 (P = 0.006). Although overall rates of hVISA and HL mupirocin resistance are low, they have increased since 2009. ..
