Welcome Address Dear Colleagues and Friends, It is our pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the 22nd European Congress of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases and we are proud to host our annual congress in the 2012 Olympic City. The Programme Committee has created a comprehensive series of keynote lectures, symposia, educational workshops and meet-the-expert sessions, covering the entire field of infection-related diseases. Applied research Introduction

and knowledge from clinical and laboratory practice are presented, many of them in an interactive way, allowing an active exchange of experiences from various sub-specialties from all over the world. Not only do you benefit from scientific exchanges during the formal activities, but also networking with colleagues with a mixture of backgrounds encourages new research ideas and innovative ways of organising laboratory and clinical processes. To host our annual congress in London during the Olympic year provides a unique opportunity in many ways. We have already mentioned the scientific programme, but the location of the 22nd ECCMID is equally important. The already exceptional setting of this city is even more vibrant in the pre-Olympic phase. Its diversity in arts, culture and gastronomy may be enjoyed by guests of all ages and interests. Situated in the imaginatively refurbished Docklands, the ExCeL exhibition and convention centre has easy access and proximity to London City Airport. The classic sightseeing spots and the inner city can easily be reached by using London’s efficient public transport. We wish you a fruitful meeting and a pleasant stay in London.

Emilio Bouza Santiago Emilio Bouza is currently the Director of the Microbiology and Infectious Disease Division at the Gregorio Maranon Hospital in Madrid, Spain. He is also a Full Professor of the Department of Medicine at the Universidad Complutense of Madrid. Emilio Bouza is a specialist in Internal Medicine and Clinical Microbiology. He did his Internship and Residency at Hospital Puerta de Hierro Hospital in Madrid between 1971 and 1975 (Autonomous University of Madrid). From 1975 –1977, he did a post-doctoral training in Infectious Diseases at the Center for the Health Sciences of the University of California in Los Angeles (UCLA). His main mentors were William Hewitt, Sidney Finegold, Richard Meyer and Lowell Young. In 1977 he founded one of the first modern Infectious Disease Units in Madrid (Spain) at the Ramon y Cajal Hospital, integrating microbiologists and internists, in Fernando Baquero’s department. He remained leader of that unit until 1984. Emilio Bouza was a founding member (1982) and former president of the Spanish Society for Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases (SEIMC), created with the objective of bringing together clinicians and microbiologists for the better management and care of infectious diseases. Since 1984 he is the Director of the Department of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases in the Gregorio Maranon Hospital, a division that combines the work of internists, infectious disease specialists, microbiologists and basic scientists. He has trained more than 30 rounds of residents in clinical microbiology and infectious diseases and has provided specific post-doc training to more than 500 physicians and clinical microbiologists from Spain and other countries. His centre is one of the ESCMID Collaborative Centres.

He held several positions within ESCMID, including elected Member of the Executive Committee and Secretary General of the Society. He was the Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Microbiology and Infection for a period of 4 years, following Professor Jacques Acar’s editorship. Emilio Bouza was the first Chairman of the Study Group of Nosocomial Infections (ESGNI) and during this period the group produced the ten initial ESGNI pan-European studies in fields such as bacteraemia, catheter-related infections, urinary-tract infections, ventilator-associated pneumonia and staphylococcal colonisation. He has authored more than 500 indexed publications and is author of over 100 book chapters. His research interests lie in the diagnosis and treatment of nosocomial infections including ventilator-associated pneumonia, catheter-related infections, invasive fungal infections, bloodstream infections, endocarditis, staphylococcal infections and Clostridium difficile-associated diarrhoea. His present Hirsch Index is 44. Emilio Bouza will be presented the ESCMID Excellence Award by Giuseppe Cornaglia, ESCMID President and Chairman of the Awards Subcommittee, on Sunday, 1 April 2012. During the ceremony he will give his award lecture: ‘Catheter-related infections: a link between clinicians and microbiologists’.

ESCMID Award for Excellence in Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases 2012

ESCMID Young Investigator Awards for Research in Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases 2012

Andrea Endimiani Andrea Endimiani received his MD board certification in Medical Microbiology and PhD in Immunopathology at the University of Insubria (Varese, Italy). He worked at the University of Pittsburgh (2006–2007) under the supervision of David Paterson and then at the Case Western Reserve University of Cleveland (2007–2010) under the direction of his mentor Robert Bonomo. Andrea Endimiani will be presented his award during the ESCMID Young Investigator Awards Session on 3 April 2012. During the session, he will give his talk: ‘Antibiotic-resistant Gram-negative organisms of animal origin: an emerging problem for human health’.

Research Interests Andrea Endimiani has constantly managed to combine basic microbiology, epidemiology, pharmacology, biochemistry and molecular tools for investigating and improving the outcome of multidrug-resistant (MDR) Gram-negative infections. Currently, he works as a clinical microbiologist at the Institute for Infectious Diseases of the University of Bern, Switzerland. He focuses on biochemistry, molecular biology and epidemiology of ESBLs, AmpCs and carbapenemases detected in Gramnegatives of human and animal origin. He is also developing novel diagnostic techniques to rapidly detect MDR organisms responsible for bacteraemia and is implementing an animal model of infection to evaluate new antibiotic strategies against MDR Gram-negatives.

Christian Giske Christian Giske started his career in clinical microbiology approximately nine years ago as a resident at Karolinska University Hospital while also doing his PhD studies there. He is now a consultant physician and associate professor in Clinical Microbiology, and leader of a research group at Karolinska Institutet. Christian Giske will be presented his award during the ESCMID Young Investigator Awards Session on 3 April 2012. During the session, he will give his talk: ‘Dissemination of acquired carbapenemases in Gram-negative bacilli: a story of successful clones’.

Research Interests The research of Christian Giske focuses on multidrugresistant Gram-negative bacilli, mostly K. pneumoniae and P. aeruginosa, including population biology studies using MLST. Several clinical studies are ongoing – one study of the duration and dynamics of fecal carriage of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae, and another project exploring patient and bacterial factors decisive in clinical outcome in K. pneumoniae bloodstream infections. Among the major findings of his research group are the description of the highly epidemic K. pneumoniae clone ST258, and several epidemic clones of P. aeruginosa (CC111 and CC235). His research group played a key role in the detection of the carbapenemase NDM-1, and is at present involved in next generation sequencing of ESBL-plasmids.

Introduction to the Scientific Programme

Educational Workshops At the beginning of ECCMID, on Saturday morning, 31 March 2012, from 08.45–13.00 a series of Educational Workshops will take place. They are organised in cooperation with ESCMID Study Groups and partnering organisations. Participation in Educational Workshops is free of charge and corresponding educational material is available online on the congress website. Meet-the-Expert Sessions Sunday through Tuesday, the day will start at 07.45 with Meet-theExpert Sessions led by experts in their fields. These sessions depend on active participation of the audience. After a short presentation, the expert will open the session for discussion. Coffee will be offered. TAE Trainees Day On Saturday, 31 March 2012, 13.30–16.30, the Trainee Association of ESCMID (TAE) organises the European Trainees Day, a day of teaching dedicated to the unique needs of trainees. During this session various topics in CM and ID will be discussed in a highly interactive way between trainees and experienced CM and ID specialists. A second and equally important aim of the day is to give trainees an opportunity to meet and network with each other. Participation is free of charge to ECCMID attendees. Keynote and Award Lectures Sunday through Tuesday at 11.30 and 14.30, lectures of 60 minutes will be given by opinion leaders in their fields as well as by the winner of the ESCMID Excellence Award 2012. Symposia From 09.00–12.30 and from 14.30–18.00 each day, parallel symposia will convene renowned speakers from Europe and other continents who will cover a wide range of recent developments in their fields. On Tuesday, 3 April 2012, the last round of symposia takes place from 13.30–15.30. A number of symposia are arranged in cooperation with ESCMID Study Groups, while others are jointly organised with partnering societies or organisations. Symposia arranged by the industry are organised in close cooperation with the ECCMID Programme Committee. They are an integral part of the scientific programme (Integrated Symposia).

Oral Sessions During the same time slots as the before mentioned symposia, you will also find sessions composed of abstracts selected for oral presentation, which are indicated by the prefix "O" in front of the programme numbers. The presenting author is indicated with an asterisk (*). Poster Sessions Most of the accepted abstracts are scheduled for poster presentation from Saturday through Tuesday. The selection is based on a blind review by at least three experts in each field. The posters are displayed in Hall S10 of the convention centre. The poster area is open to all participants on Saturday from 13.30–17.00, on Sunday and Monday from 10.00–17.00 and on Tuesday from 10.00–15.00. Please note that posters are exchanged on a daily basis. Poster authors must be present at their posters for discussion during their poster session (see page 225 for details). The presenting author is indicated by an asterisk (*). Posters submitted prior to the congress for inclusion in the online poster library can be viewed on PCs next to the poster desk during the entire congress or on the congress website. Publication Only Due to a large response to the call for abstracts, the Programme Committee has had to restrict the number of abstracts for presentation during the meeting. Abstracts of this category are not included in the Final Programme but are published in Clinical Microbiology and Infection (CMI) in the online library, and on the congress website. Online Meeting Planner during the 22nd ECCMID The final scientific programme including all accepted abstracts is available on the congress website at Go to the “Scientific Programme” link to compose your personalised programme of lectures.

ABBREVIATED PRESCRIBING INFORMATION Prevenar 13® suspension for injection Pneumococcal polysaccharide conjugate vaccine (13-valent, adsorbed) Presentation: Each 0.5ml dose of Prevenar 13 contains 2.2 micrograms of each of the following polysaccharide serotypes: 1, 3, 4, 5, 6A, 7F, 9V, 14, 18C, 19A, 19F, 23F and 4.4 micrograms of polysaccharide serotype 6B. Each polysaccharide is conjugated to the CRM197 carrier protein and adsorbed on aluminium phosphate (0.125 mg aluminium). Indications: Active immunisation for the prevention of invasive disease, pneumonia and acute otitis media caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae in infants and children from 6 weeks to 5 years of age. Active immunisation for the prevention of invasive disease caused by Streptococcus pneumoniae in adults aged 50 years and older. The use of Prevenar 13 should be determined on the basis of official recommendations taking into consideration the impact of invasive disease in different age groups as well as the variability of serotype epidemiology in different geographical areas. Dosage and Administration: For intramuscular injection. It is recommended that infants who receive a first dose of Prevenar 13 complete the vaccination course with Prevenar 13. Infants aged 6 weeks-6 months: Three-dose primary series: The recommended immunisation series consists of four doses. The primary infant series consists of three doses, with the first dose usually given at 2 months of age and with an interval of at least 1 month between doses. The first dose may be given as early as six weeks of age. The fourth (booster) dose is recommended between 11 and 15 months of age. Two-dose primary series: Alternatively, when Prevenar 13 is given as part of a routine infant immunisation programme, a series consisting of three doses may be given. The first dose may be administered from the age of 2 months, with a second dose 2 months later. The third (booster) dose is recommended between 11 and 15 months of age. Unvaccinated infants and children * 7 months of age: Infants aged 7-11 months: Two doses, with an interval of at least 1 month between doses. A third dose is recommended in the second year of life. Children aged 12-23 months: Two doses, with an interval of at least 2 months between doses. Children aged 2-5 years: One single dose. Prevenar 13 vaccine schedule for infants and children previously vaccinated with Prevenar (7-valent) (Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes 4, 6B, 9V, 14, 18C, 19F, and 23F). Infants and children who have begun immunisation with Prevenar may switch to Prevenar 13 at any point in the schedule. Children aged 12-23 months: Children who have not received two doses of Prevenar 13 during the infant series should receive two doses of the vaccine (with an interval of at least 2 months between doses) to complete the immunisation series for the six additional serotypes. Alternatively, complete the immunisation series according to official recommendations. Children aged 2-5 years: One single dose. Adults aged 50 years and older: One single dose. The need for revaccination with a subsequent dose of Prevenar 13 has not been established. Regardless of prior pneumococcal vaccination status, if the use of 23 valent polysaccharide vaccine is considered appropriate, Prevenar 13 should be given first. Contra-indications: Hypersensitivity to the active substances, to any of the excipients, or


Pneumococcal polysaccharide conjugate vaccine (13-valent, adsorbed)

to diphtheria toxoid. As with other vaccines, the administration of Prevenar 13 should be postponed in subjects suffering from acute, severe febrile illness. However, the presence of a minor infection, such as a cold, should not result in the deferral of vaccination.Warnings and Precautions: Do not administer intravascularly. Appropriate medical treatment and supervision must be available in case of anaphylaxis. It should not be given to individuals with thrombocytopenia or any coagulation disorder that would contraindicate intramuscular injection, but may be given subcutaneously if the potential benefit clearly outweighs the risks. Prevenar 13 will only protect against Streptococcus pneumoniae serotypes included in the vaccine, and will not protect against other microorganisms that cause invasive disease, pneumonia, or otitis media. As with any vaccine, Prevenar 13 may not protect all individuals receiving the vaccine from pneumococcal disease. Individuals with impaired immune responsiveness, whether due to the use of immuno-suppressive therapy, a genetic defect, human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection, or other causes, may have reduced antibody response to active immunisation. Safety and immunogenicity data for Prevenar 13 are not available for individuals in specific immuno-compromised groups (e.g., congenital or acquired splenic dysfunction, HIV infected, malignancy, haematopoietic stem cell transplant, nephrotic syndrome) and vaccination should be considered on an individual basis. Infants and children aged 6 weeks to 5 years: Limited data have demonstrated that Prevenar 7 valent (three-dose primary series) induces an acceptable immune response in infants with sickle cell disease with a safety profile similar to that observed in non-high-risk groups. Children younger than 2 years old should receive the appropriate-for-age Prevenar 13 vaccination series. The use of pneumococcal conjugate vaccine does not replace 23-valent polysaccharide vaccine in at risk children *2 years of age. Children *2 years of age at high risk, previously immunised with Prevenar 13 should receive 23-valent pneumococcal polysaccharide vaccine whenever recommended. The potential risk of apnoea and the need for respiratory monitoring for 48-72 hours should be considered when administering the primary immunisation series to very premature infants (born ) 28 weeks of gestation) and particularly for those with a previous history of respiratory immaturity. Antipyretic treatment should be initiated according to local treatment guidelines for children with seizure disorders or a prior history of febrile seizures, or when vaccinating simultaneously with whole cell pertussis vaccines. Fertility, Pregnancy & Lactation: There are no data from the use of pneumococcal 13-valent conjugate in pregnant women. It is unknown whether pneumococcal 13-valent conjugate is excreted in human milk. Side Effects: Adverse reactions reported in clinical studies or from the post-marketing experience for all age groups are listed in this section per system organ class, in decreasing order of frequency and seriousness. The frequency is defined as follows: very common (*1/10), common (*1/100 to < 1/10), uncommon (*1/1,000 to < 1/100), rare (*1/10,000 to < 1/1,000), very rare ()1/10,000), not known (cannot be estimated from available data). Infants and children aged 6 weeks to 5 years: Very common (*1/10): Decreased appetite, fever, pyrexia, irritability, any injection-site reactions (including erythema, induration/swelling [2.5 cm – 7.0

cm after booster dose and in older children, aged 2 to 5 years] or pain/tenderness), drowsiness, restless sleep. Common (*1/100 to < 1/10): Fever over 39 °C, injection-site movement impairment (due to pain), injection-site erythema or induration/swelling 2.5 cm – 7.0 cm (after infant series). Uncommon (*1/1,000 to < 1/100): Vomiting, diarrhoea, injection-site erythema, induration/swelling > 7.00 cm, crying. Rare (*1/10,000 to
