- First report of human infection with Salmonella enterica serovar Apapa resulting from exposure to a pet lizardFiona J Cooke
Addenbrooke s Hospital, Cambridge, United Kingdom
J Clin Microbiol 47:2672-4. 2009..The isolates were identical by biochemical profiling and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis. This rare serotype is known to be associated with reptiles. The current practice for avoiding reptile-associated infections is reviewed...

- First report of Salmonella enterica serotype paratyphi A azithromycin resistance leading to treatment failureAoife Molloy
Department of Infectious Diseases, Addenbrooke s Hospital, Cambridge, United Kingdom
J Clin Microbiol 48:4655-7. 2010..Resistance to fluoroquinolones is common and leads to more frequent use of newer agents like azithromycin. We report the first case of azithromycin resistance and treatment failure in a patient with S. Paratyphi A infection...
- Variation in Salmonella enterica serovar typhi IncHI1 plasmids during the global spread of resistant typhoid feverMinh Duy Phan
The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, Hinxton, Cambridge, United Kingdom
Antimicrob Agents Chemother 53:716-27. 2009..We propose that antibiotic selection acts to maintain resistance genes on the plasmid, but there is also competition between plasmids encoding the same resistance phenotype...
