Cytomegalovirus management after allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation: A mini-review

Because of the high incidence of cytomegalovirus (CMV) seropositivity in the population, CMV infection is a common and severe complication of allogeneic hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (allo-HSCT) in Taiwan. Here we propose a CMV management strategy for patients undergoing allo-HSCT from the Taiwanese perspective, which focuses on the epidemiology, diagnosis, monitoring, prophylaxis, and treatment of CMV infection after allo-HSCT. In terms of CMV monitoring, weekly CMV monitoring with…

Characterization of oxazolidinone and phenicol resistance genes in non-clinical enterococcal isolates from Korea

CONCLUSIONS: This is the first study to report the detection of poxtA in isolates that were both susceptible and resistant to linezolid in Korea. These results demonstrate the importance of antimicrobial resistance monitoring programmes, including regular antimicrobial susceptibility testing and resistance gene expression analysis, to facilitate the control of the spread of antibiotic resistance in non-clinical settings in Korea.
