Abstract

A high level of antibiotic consumption in France means antimicrobial resistance requires rigorous monitoring. The Tigecycline Evaluation and Surveillance Trial (T.E.S.T.) is a global surveillance study that monitors the in vitro activities of tigecycline and a panel of marketed antimicrobials against clinically important Gram-positive and Gram-negative isolates. Annually clinically relevant strains were prospectively included in the survey through a national network of hospital-based laboratories. MICs were determined locally by broth microdilution using CLSI guidelines. Antimicrobial susceptibility was assessed using European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing breakpoints. Thirty-three centres in France collected 26,486 isolates between 2004 and 2016. Enterococcus species were highly susceptible (≥94.4%) to linezolid, tigecycline and vancomycin. Staphylococcus aureus, including methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), were susceptible (≥99.9%) to tigecycline, vancomycin and linezolid. Between 2004 and 2016, 27.7% of S. aureus isolates were MRSA, decreasing from 28.0% in 2013 to 23.5% in 2016. Susceptibility of Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates was 100% to vancomycin, and > 99.0% to levofloxacin, linezolid and meropenem; 3.0% were penicillin-resistant S. pneumoniae (100% susceptibility to vancomycin and linezolid). Escherichia coli isolates were highly susceptible (> 98.0%) to meropenem, tigecycline and amikacin. The rate of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) positive E. coli increased from 2004 (3.0%), but was stable from 2012 (23.1%) to 2016 (19.8%). Susceptibility of Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates was 99.4% to meropenem and 96.5% to amikacin. The proportion of ESBL-positive K. pneumoniae isolates increased from 2004 (7.5%) to 2012 (33.3%) and was highest in 2016 (43.6%). A. baumannii was susceptible to meropenem (81.0%) and amikacin (74.9%); none of the 6.2% of isolates identified as multidrug-resistant (MDR) was susceptible to any agents with breakpoints. P. aeruginosa isolates were most susceptible to amikacin (88.5%), and MDR rates were 13.6% in 2013 to 4.0% in 2016; susceptibility of MDR isolates was no higher than 31.4% to amikacin. Rates of MRSA decreased slowly, while rates of ESBL-positive E. coli and K. pneumoniae increased from 2004 to 2016. Susceptibility of Gram-positive isolates to vancomycin, tigecycline, meropenem and linezolid was well conserved, as was susceptibility of Gram-negative isolates to tigecycline and meropenem. The spread of MDR non-fermentative isolates must be carefully monitored.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 12. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 August 2019.
All research outputs
#1,652,233
of 15,575,185 outputs
Outputs from Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control
#264
of 869 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#47,529
of 280,967 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control
#1
of 2 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,575,185 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 89th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 869 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 16.4. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 69% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 280,967 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 2 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
