Journal Article
Fraser, M., Borman, A. M., Thorn, R., & Lawrance, L. M. (2020). Resistance to echinocandin antifungal agents in the United Kingdom in clinical isolates of Candida glabrata: Fifteen years of interpretation and assessment. Medical Mycology, 58(2), 219-226. https://doi.org/10.1093/mmy/myz053

Candidaemia is widely reported as the fourth most common form of bloodstream infection worldwide. Reports of breakthrough cases of candidaemia are increasing, especially in the context of a move away from azole antifungals as prophylactic or first li...

© 2016 Elsevier Inc. Multi-locus sequence typing was used to reveal a high degree of diversity amongst the E. coli isolates with AmpC plasmid genes, and a high prevalence of the −32 mutation present.

Chromosomal ampC mutations in cefpodoxime-resistant ESBL-negative uropathogenic escherichia coli (2015)
Journal Article
Lewis, J. A., Moore, P. M., Arnold, D. L., & Lawrance, L. (2015). Chromosomal ampC mutations in cefpodoxime-resistant ESBL-negative uropathogenic escherichia coli. British Journal of Biomedical Science, 72(1), 7-11. https://doi.org/10.1080/09674845.2015.11666789

AmpC beta-lactamase is an enzyme commonly produced by Escherichia coli that causes resistance to cephalosporins and penicillins. Enzyme production is controlled by the strength of the promoter encoded by the chromosomal ampC gene, with the level of p...

Rubella, an insignificant viral disease of childhood, can have devastating effects on the fetus if infection is acquired during pregnancy. An immunisation programme was established in the UK in the 1970s, with the monitoring of pregnant women for rub...
