Part Description

LP102543-8   Enterococcus faecium
Enterococcus faecalis and faecium are Gram-positive commensal bacteria of the gastrointestinal tract. Although part of the normal intestinal flora, Enterococcus species are increasingly recognized as important pathogens and a common cause of nosocomial infections. E. faecalis and E. faecium account for the vast majority of infections in humans, which can include urinary tract infections, endocarditis, bacteremia, wounds infections, intraabdominal and pelvic infections. Enterococci can show both intrinsic and acquired resistance to antibiotics including penicillin, chloramphenicol, tetracyclines, rifampin, fluoroquinolones, aminoglycosides and vancomycin. E. faecium is responsible for the majority of vancomycin-resistant enterococcal (VRE) infections. The virulence of the Enterococci is generally considered lower than S. aureus. However, because these infections often occur in debilitated patients, the mortality can be as high as 50% [https://emedicine.medscape.com/article/216993-overview] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
