  1. Invasive pneumococcal disease in central Oklahoma : emergence of high-level penicillin resistance and multiple antibiotic resistance.

    Article - En anglais

    Relatively penicillin-resistant pneumococci have caused 10% of invasive pneumococcal disease in central Oklahoma during the last decade, but almost no high-level penicillin or other antibiotic resistance has been described.

    This study evaluated antibiotic susceptibility and serotype distribution in invasive pneumococcal disease in the Oklahoma City metropolitan area (1990 population 848,000).

    A total of 144 cases of invasive infection was collected in I year (17 with meningitis, 120 with other bacteremic infections, and 7 with other invasive infections), for a rate of 16.9/100,000 (95% confidence interval [CI], 14.0-19.5).

    For the population aged >=60, invasive pneumococcal disease rates were higher among nursing home residents (352/100,000) than among nonresidents (25.6/100,000; relative risk, 13.7; 95% CI, 7.7-24.7).
