Rapid and accurate identification of non-tuberculous mycobacteria (NTM) is important for a prompt start to antibiotic therapy. The aim of this study was to obtain accurate identification of NTM quickly by analyzing the performance of the MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry (MS) system VITEK® MS in identifying various NTM species from solid medium and MGIT 960 liquid medium. The study was performed in two phases: preliminary and perspective. Overall, 41/42 species and 33/34 species were correctly identif...
This paper aims to describe the etiology of bloodstream infections in COVID-19, Papa Giovanni XXIII Hospital, Bergamo, Italy. Two periods were evaluated: February 22-May 21, 2019/2020. We considered: the number of patients and blood culture sets, species of isolates (bacteria, specifically those indicated by EARS criteria; CoNS; Candida albicans) and their antibiotic sensitivity. In 2020 Escherichia coli and Carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae disappeared. Candida albicans and MDR Pseu...
