Joint Special Issues

The Publications Network shares publication expertise and develops cross-promotional opportunities for Member Societies who publish journals, books and any other publications.

The first publication by this network is the Virtual Special Issue Europe’s Microbiology Network. This virtual special issue showcases a selection of the best research recently published in some of the journals produced by Societies in the FEMS microbiology network.

The second publication is a collection of articles called Microbiology & Infection, is by FEMS in association with two FEMS Member Societies, the Association for General and Applied Microbiology (VAAM) and the German Society for Hygiene and Microbiology (DGHM).

The third publication called Microbiology in Action is a collaboration with seven Member Societies. This collection showcases the best of microbiology from our Member Societies.

The fourth publication called Microbiology in Action II is a sequel of Microbiology in action and a collaboration with eight of our Member Societies.

Induced erythromycin resistance promotes solithromycin resistance in S. aureus

The aim of this study was to determine whether in vitro induced erythromycin resistance facilitates the cross-resistance to the novel fluoroketolide, solithromycin, in Staphylococcus aureus. Long-term exposure of erythromycin results in resistance to ketolides in S. aureus through drug binding site mutations. These results demonstrate that since erythromycin has been used clinically for a long time, it is necessary to carefully evaluate the rewards and risks when prescribing solithromycin for the treatment of infectious diseases.
