Microbiology

The Research Group of Microbiology at Vall d’Hebron Research Institute (VHIR) focuses on the study of the microbiology aspects, at basic, translational and clinical research, that could improve the outcomes of patients with infectious diseases.

We work with special interest in studying the mechanisms involved in antimicrobial resistance, sepsis, viral respiratory infections, sexually transmitted infections, international health infections, food borne infections and viral and fungal infections in immunocompromised patients.

The Research Group actively collaborates with other microbiology laboratories, healthcare services, national and international centers and organizations, as well as with the different research networks of the Carlos III Health Institute in Spain.

Additionally, the research group carries out an important activity in the surveillance of the genotypic and phenotypic evolution of virulence, transmissibility, antigenic escape and antimicrobial resistance of microorganisms that circulate in the community, in collaboration with public administrations, both nationally and internationally.

Research lines

Epidemiology

D.1.-Evaluating the effectiveness of the antipneumococcal vaccine conjugated 7-valente in the prevention of invasive pneumococcal disease in children under 5 years. Multicentric work that studies the effectiveness of the antipneumococcal vaccine conjugated 7-valent against the invasive disease caused by vaccine serotypes and also by those that have cross-reactivity, in children under 5 years; and the serotypes, clones and resistance profile distribution of Streptococcus pneumoniae in different clinical shapes of the invasive disease in children under 5 years, and also in carriers in order to evaluate the consequent drift after vaccination. IP: Anna M. Planes Reig D.2.- Incidence of infection by respiratory viruses in lung transplantation. Impact of infection by respiratory viruses in the natural history of chronic rejection. Diagnosis and dynamic tracking of the infection by respiratory viruses to know their incidence in lung transplantation in our country and evaluating the role played by respiratory viruses in the evolution to the chronic rejection in patients subject to lung transplantation. IP: Gema Codina Grau D.3.-Quick identification of infections by Candida yeasts Evaluation of the fungemia detection by PCR in hemoculture and in direct blood samples with Candidayeasts. IP: Eva Roselló Mayans

Mechanism of antimicrobials resistance

A.1.- Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli which carry ß-lactamases blaCTX-M-15: Epidemiological and molecular study of K. pneumoniae clones and multiresistant E. coli which produce this enzyme. Its main goal is to define the epidemic expansion of these strains and to compare the vectors that carry these genes. IP: Alicia Coelho A.2.- Plasmid mediated blaoxy: Description of the first plasmid that carrying blaoxy beta-lactamase; and study of its diffusion capacity. IP: Juan José González-López A.3.-Study the antimicrobial activity of new antimicrobials. The progressive increase of resistances has promoted new research in new antimicrobials. This work evaluates the activity of new molecules on multiresistant bacterium with different mechanisms of molecular resistance. IP: Rosa M. Bartolomé A.4. Mycobacterium resistance to tuberculostatics Standardization's techniques to study the sensitivity of M. tuberculosis and M. avium. Participating in the international net of WHO and IUATLD. Acting as Supranational Reference Laboratory of WHO to control the quality of the susceptibility tests of M. tuberculosis. Standardization's susceptibility tests of M. tuberculosis to second-line drugs. IP: Nuria Martín Casabona

Pathogenicity

B.1.- Escherichia coli: Extraintestinal infection, population drifts and virulence factors Study of virulence factors, philogenic groups and pathogenicity islands of E.coli which cause extraintestinal infections through molecular techniques. Evaluating the pathogenic capacity of strains of various philogenic groups with a variable number of virulence factors through animal-experimentation model. Evaluating the resistance to phagocytosis by polynuclears and macrophages and the induction capacity of interleukines production. IP: Antonia Andreu B.2.-Clostridium difficile phatogenicity Multicentric study, where different hospitals of Barcelona metropolitan area take part, that studies the epidemiology of infections caused by C. difficile, the susceptibility to antimicrobials and the virulence molecular factors (toxins and genetic regulation) of the isolated strains. IP: Rosa M. Bartolomé B.3.- Epidemiology and pathogenicity of Meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) at outpatient environment Multicentric work between our group and other state centers that study the relation among epidemiology of colonization and the pathological processes that cause MRSA and their relation with strains virulence factors.

The scientific review reports that changes in the respiratory system flora due to pollution increase the risk of suffering a hospital infection caused by multidrug-resistant organisms.

Els ajuts impulsaran estudis en els camps del VIH, les hepatitis virals i la COVID-19.

El treball, publicat a The Lancet, ha estudiat pacients de Barcelona i Madrid i mostra que el contacte directe és la principal via de transmissió de la infecció.
