  1. Long-term carriage of Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase-2-producing K pneumoniae after a large single-center outbreak in Germany.

    American Journal of Infection Control 42(4):376 (2014) PMID 24679563

    We analyzed carrier prevalence through retrospective and prospective investigation of intestinal KPC-2-KP carriage 1 month, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, and 2 years after acquisition, defined as the earliest date of KPC-2-KP detection. Rectal swabs or stool samples were collected at baseline and at e...
  2. The survival of influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 virus on 4 household surfaces.

    American Journal of Infection Control 42(4):423 (2014) PMID 24679569

    We investigated the survival of a pandemic strain of influenza A H1N1 on a variety of common household surfaces where multiple samples were taken from 4 types of common household fomite at 7 time points. Results showed that influenza A H1N1sw virus particles remained infectious for 48 hours on a woo...
  3. Fabric softeners impact cleaning, but not disinfection, by a saturated steam vapor system.

  4. Community-onset invasive methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections following hospital discharge.

    American Journal of Infection Control 41(9):782 (2013) PMID 23394888

    We performed a matched case-control study to identify risk factors for invasive MRSA infection among recently discharged patients. Cases had MRSA cultured from a normally sterile body site within 100 days following hospital discharge. Controls were matched on hospital, week of admission, and age. Am...
