Epidemiology of aeromonas spp in a hospital


, : Epidemiology of aeromonas spp in a hospital. Journal of Hospital Infection 11(2): 169-175

The occurrence of Aeromonas spp. in a hospital water supply, in patients and in the local community was investigated. In healthy persons outside the hospital the isolation rate was 3.6% and among hospital patients it was 6%. Seven per cent of water samples yielded aeromonas strains. Isolates were typed by sodium dodecyl sulphate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis of sulphur-35 methionine labelled proteins of aeromonas isolates. No relationship between water and human isolates could be established, even when a strain of A. hydrophila producing Vero cell cytotoxin contaminated enteral feeds given to patients in the intensive care unit.

A seasonal variation in nosocomial Aeromonas hydrophila infection was correlated with the number of aeromonas in the hospital water supply. The high summer prevalence of A. hydrophila infection coincided with periods when water counts from storage...

Aeromonas species are important pathogens of fishes and aquatic animals capable of infecting humans and other animals via food. Due to the paucity of pan-genomic studies on aeromonads, the present study was undertaken to analyse the pan-genome of...

Previous studies indicate that Aeromonas aquariorum and Aeromonas hydrophila subsp. dhakensis are the same taxon and suggest that they should be synonymized. Using a polyphasic approach, the phenotypic and phylogenetic relationship of A. aquarioru...
