Antibiotic resistance in urinary tract pathogens in children – Armid-2000

Armid-2000 - Antibiotic resistance in urinary tract pathogens in children.

Purpose of investigation

To study etiologic structure and susceptibility in pathogens of community-acquired and nosocomial UTI in children to commonly prescribed antimicrobials for these infections.

Study design

The investigation was held in 10 centers in different Russian regions. Children of different ages, except newborns with any infection of upper or lower urinary tract were enrolled in the study. Each center collected 100 consecutive strains of UTI pathogens.

The identification was performed using routine laboratory procedures. All collected strains were submitted to the central laboratory of the Institute of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (IAC), where re-identification of 100% and susceptibility testing with MIC method was performed to the following antimicrobial agents:

  • amoxicillin
  • gentamicin
  • amoxicillin clavulanic acid
  • netilmicin
  • cefazolin
  • amikacin
  • cefuroxime
  • nalidic acid
  • cefotaxime
  • ciprofloxacin
  • ceftriaxone
  • ceftazidime
  • nitrofurantoin
  • cefepime
  • nitroxolin
  • imipenem
  • fosfomycin
