Prevalence of Carbapenemase Producing Organisms in East London, UK. (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Henderson, J., Ciesielczuk, H., & Nelson, S. (2019, September). Prevalence of Carbapenemase Producing Organisms in East London, UK. Poster presented at IBMS Congress 2019, Birmingham

Carbapenemases are enzymes, produced by an array of common Gram-negative organisms, which hydrolyse the carbapenem antibiotics, conferring resistance [1]. The main protagonists are the “big five” carbapenemases, KPC, OXA-48, IMP, VIM and NDM, which h... Read More about Prevalence of Carbapenemase Producing Organisms in East London, UK..

Point prevalence study determining the inpatient rate of carbapenemase-producing organisms at a large NHS trust in the UK (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Henderson, J., Ciesielczuk, H., Nelson, S., & Wilks, M. (2019, April). Point prevalence study determining the inpatient rate of carbapenemase-producing organisms at a large NHS trust in the UK. Poster presented at 29th European Conference of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Disease

A point prevalence study (PPS) to determine the carriage rate of carbapenemase producing organisms (CPOs) was performed across 4 sites at Barts Health NHS Trust (BHT), encompassing 2.5 million patients across three London boroughs: Tower Hamlets, New...

Community screening to determine the prevalence of carbapenemase producing organisms in East London, 2018 (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Henderson, J., Ciesielczuk, H., Nelson, S., & Wilks, M. (2018, November). Community screening to determine the prevalence of carbapenemase producing organisms in East London, 2018. Poster presented at Federation of Infection Sciences Conference 2018

Carbapenems are broad spectrum antibiotics reserved for patients who are extremely ill or suspected of having an infection caused by a multidrug resistant organism (Nordmann et al., 2011). Over the past ten years there has been a dramatic increase in... Read More about Community screening to determine the prevalence of carbapenemase producing organisms in East London, 2018.

Characterisation of a dual species perfusion biofilm model (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Steven, J., & Nelson, S. (2018, June). Characterisation of a dual species perfusion biofilm model. Poster presented at Microbiology Society Early Career Microbiologists’ Forum Summer Conference

An estimated 65–80% of human infections are biofilm-related. As the biofilm mode of growth significantly contributes to bacterial tolerance of antimicrobial treatment, this has important ramifications for patient morbidity and associated healthcare c...

Isolation and characterisation of bacteriophages for use against biofilms of Pseudomonas aeruginosa clinical isolates (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Box, J., Turner, D., & Nelson, S. (2018, June). Isolation and characterisation of bacteriophages for use against biofilms of Pseudomonas aeruginosa clinical isolates. Poster presented at Microbiology Society Early Career Microbiologists’ Forum Summer Conference

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a World Health Organization priority 1, ESKAPE pathogen that is capable of causing a wide spectrum of nosocomial and community-acquired infections. It employs a wide range of antibiotic resistance mechanisms and is often dif...

Dual species biofilm culture of Staphylococcus aureus and a bioluminescent strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa (2016)
Presentation / Conference
Steven, J., Robinson, G., & Nelson, S. (2016, October). Dual species biofilm culture of Staphylococcus aureus and a bioluminescent strain of Pseudomonas aeruginosa

Poster presentation. Introduction Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus aureus are significant pathogens of wounds and the cystic fibrosis lung. There are likely to be complex interactions between the two species, with biofilm co-culture aff...
