Each of these presentations adds to the growing body of evidence in favor of cefepime-enmetazobactam to treat infections by third-generation cephalosporin (3GC)-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, the most prevalent 'critical priority' pathogen as defined by the WHO," said Klaus Wilgenbus, Chief Executive Officer of Allecra Therapeutics.
cloacae which are members of Enterobacteriaceae family play a significant role in causing nosocomial infections like, wounds, skin, soft tissue, urinary tract, respiratory tract, and biliary tract, mostly in immunocompromised patients.
VenatoRx believes that VNRX-5133, in a fixed combination with the fourth generation cephalosporin, cefepime, has the potential to provide a valuable broad-spectrum treatment option to meet unmet medical needs in patients with infections due to carbapenem-resistant pathogens including carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae and carbapenem-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa (CRPA), suspected polymicrobial infections caused by both gram-negative and gram-positive susceptible pathogens, and engineerable bioterror pathogens such as Burkholderia spp.
We also reported encouraging topline data from the Phase 1 study of ETX0282 which is being developed as a therapy for gram-negative infections caused by multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae. We also announced the addition of David Meek, current CEO of Ipsen S.A.
Summary: These tests are easy to perform and can be performed in a routine laboratory, which makes them more feasible and thus, one of the leading test types in Carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae testing market.
In a recent study, scientists have discovered that three closely related species of bacteria belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae, known to cause infection in hospitals, outlived all other oral bacteria in long-term starvation or 'doomsday' experiment.

Helperby recently presented data at the European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (ECCMID 2018) announcing Phase I results on the tolerability, pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of AZT and colistin both alone and as a combined therapy, against multi-drug resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), one of the most serious drug resistant pathogens.
The Enterobacteriaceae family contains a large number of species that are causes for most common infections like nosocomial infections, urinary tract and wound infections, pneumonia, meningitis and septicemia (Ruiz et al., 2002).
