This cross-sectional study was conducted from November to December of at the Cayetano Heredia National Hospital in Lima, Peru, to determine the rate of infection with vancomycin-resistant enterococcus VRE , the resistance genotype, and associated factors. The rate of infection with VRE was 6. In conclusion, perianal colonization with VRE is present in many hospital services.

What is this page? This cross-sectional study was conducted from November to December of at the Cayetano Heredia National Hospital in Lima, Peru, to determine the rate of infection with vancomycin-resistant enterococcus VRE , the resistance genotype, and associated factors. The rate of infection with VRE was 6. In conclusion, perianal colonization with VRE is present in many hospital services. Moreover, the vanA gene may cause resistance to vancomycin and promote the development of vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus.
Therefore, infection control measures should be adopted to prevent the dissemination of this bacterial strain in hospital settings. This page is provided by Altmetric. Altmetric Badge.

Enterococos resistentes a vancomicina: Un problema emergente en Uruguay.
Risk factor of intestinal colonization with vancomycin resistant Enterococcus spp in hospitalized pediatric patients with oncological disease. Universidad de Chile. Correspondencia a :. Background: The isolation of vancomycin-resistant Enterococcus spp ERV has increased significantly within the last few years, along with the risk of infection and dissemination of these bacteria. The patients were classified as "colonized with ERV" and "not colonized with ERV" and we evaluated possible RF for intestinal colonization in both groups.
