Fosfomycin Resistance in Canine Uropathogens?
This week, Rachel had the chance to present her research entitled: “Fosfomycin Resistant Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus pseudintermedius Isolated from Canine Urinary Tract Infections in Western Canada” at CACMID 2017 in Toronto. We were really excited to see a study describing the fosfomycin susceptibility of human urinary isolates; it turns out that resistance is (fortunately) uncommon whether the bugs are infecting people or dogs! This was the third time Rubin lab members have attended the annual CACMID conference (Canadian Association for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases), and it was another great opportunity to learn more about human infectious diseases and have some 'cross-species' discussions.
