Clinical Microbiology and Antimicrobial Chemotherapy - Official IACMAC Journal
Conferences, Seminars and Workshops

IACMAC activity plan (2020)

  • V Central Russian Conference on Antimicrobial Therapy and Clinical Microbiology (October 15-16, online)
  • Certification workshop of professional education on specialty Bacteriology (October 26 November 26, Smolensk)
  • XXII International Congress on Antimicrobial Chemotherapy and Clinical Microbiology (November 2426, online)

Dear colleagues! We encourage to take part in multicenter prospective microbiological study of the antimicrobial resistance of community-acquired pathogens: S. pneumoniae, H. influenzae and S. pyogenes (PeGAS study).

Since 2015 IAC and IACMAC have conducted multicenter study aimed to evaluate the prevalence of mutation resistance to macrolide antibiotic in Mycoplasma pneumonia and Mycoplasma genitalium.

European Committee on Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing (EUCAST) has amended the clinical classification of susceptibility (categories S,I and R): currently the clinical evaluation of susceptibility is connected with drug exposure in the nidus of infection.

The occupational standard on specialty "Medical microbiology" from the Ministry of Healthcare of the Russian Federation is posted on IACMAC website.

Prophylactic antibiotics for the prevention of infection following operative vaginal delivery (ANODE): study protocol for a randomised controlled trial

Risk factors for maternal infection are clearly recognised, including caesarean section and operative vaginal birth. Antibiotic prophylaxis at caesarean section is widely recommended because there is clear systematic review evidence that it reduces incidence of maternal infection. Current WHO guidelines do not recommend routine antibiotic prophylaxis for women undergoing operative vaginal birth because of insufficient evidence of effectiveness. We aimed to investigate whether antibiotic prophylaxis prevented maternal infection after operative vaginal birth.

Effectiveness of honey dressing in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers: A systematic review and meta-analysis

Honey dressing has been applied in the treatment of diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs). However, there is a lack of research showing ample evidence that honey dressing is more effective in the treatment of DFUs than other dressings. This study aimed to examine the effects of honey dressing on wound-healing process for DFUs.
