Multidrug-resistant Gram negative bacteria are steadily increasing worldwide, approaching or even attaining the endemicity threshold in many countries. The proposed course will offer the latest knowledge in this infectious disease field from genetics, epidemiology, detection of infected and carriersand treatment of infections due those MDR bacteria. The course will focuse on resistance to the most important antibiotics for treating Gram-negative bacteria that are expanded-spectrum cephalosporins, carbapenems, extended-spectrum aminoglycosides and polymyxins. Practical lab demonstrations will follow the lectures for learning the most modern and diagnostic techniques for rapid identification of those MDR bacteria in clinical microbiology.
