In Vitro Susceptibility to Ceftazidime-Avibactam of Carbapenem-Nonsusceptible Enterobacteriaceae Isolates Collected during the INFORM Global Surveillance Study (2012 to 2014). Antimicrob Agents Chemother. 2016;60:3163-9 pubmed publisher..7% susceptibility to ceftazidime-avibactam. Ceftazidime-avibactam activity was compromised only in isolates for which carbapenem resistance was mediated through metallo-β-lactamases. ..

Antimicrob Agents Chemother. 2016;60:4490-500 pubmed publisher..aeruginosa This analysis of surveillance data demonstrated that KPC is widely disseminated. KPC was found in multiple species of Enterobacteriaceae and P. aeruginosa and has now become a global problem. ..
