    • Antimicrobial susceptibility and body site distribution of community isolates of coagulase-negative staphylococci 

      Cavanagh, Jorunn Pauline; Wolden, Runa; Heise, Philipp; Esaiassen, Eirin; Klingenberg, Claus; Aarag, Elizabeth (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-09-07)
      The primary aim of this study was to determine antimicrobial resistance in coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) from healthy adults in the community. Healthy adults (n = 114) were swabbed on six body sites; both armpits, both knee pits and both sides of the groin. Species determination was performed using Matrix Assisted Laser Desorption Ionization – Time of Flight (MALDI-TOF) and susceptibility ...
    • Conserved collateral antibiotic susceptibility networks in diverse clinical strains of Escherichia coli 

      Podnecky, Nicole L.; Aarag, Elizabeth; Kloos, Julia Maria; Sørum, Vidar; Primicerio, Raul; Roberts, Adam Paul; Rozen, Daniel E.; Samuelsen, Ørjan; Johnsen, Pål Jarle (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-10)
      There is urgent need to develop novel treatment strategies to reduce antimicrobial resistance. Collateral sensitivity (CS), where resistance to one antimicrobial increases susceptibility to other drugs, might enable selection against resistance during treatment. However, the success of this approach would depend on the conservation of CS networks across genetically diverse bacterial strains. Here, ...
    • Core genome conservation of Staphylococcus haemolyticus limits sequence based population structure analysis 

      Cavanagh, Jorunn Pauline; Klingenberg, Claus Andreas; Hanssen, Anne-Merethe; Aarag, Elizabeth; Francois, Patrice; Schrenzel, Jaques; Flægstad, Trond; Sollid, Johanna U Ericson (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      The notoriously multi-resistant Staphylococcus haemolyticus is an emerging pathogen causing serious infections in immunocompromised patients. Defining the population structure is important to detect outbreaks and spread of antimicrobial resistant clones. Currently, the standard typing technique is pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE). In this study we describe novel molecular typing schemes for ...
