  • Extremely High Mortality Rates in Patients with Carbapenem-resistant, Hypermucoviscous Klebsiella pneumoniae Blood Stream Infections. [Journal Article]

  • CONCLUSIONS: String test, aids prediction of disease severity, and is independently associated with increased mortality in invasive carbapenem resistant K.pneumoniae health care-acquired infections. High meropenem MIC is a significant risk factor for mortality. Combination of string positive carbapenem resistant hypermucoviscous K. pneumoniae resulted in mortality rate of 84.2%. It is important to monitor prevalence of carbapenem resistant hypermucoviscous/hypervirulent K. pneumoniae among invasive isolates especially in a setting with high resistance rates as combination of increased virulence and decreased susceptibility to antimicrobials results in worse outcomes.
