This paper describes the trends in prevalence of ESBL producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL-E) and ESBL genes, measured in five consecutive yearly Point Prevalence Surveys (PPS). All patients present in the hospital and in a day-care clinic (including patients on dialysis) on the day of the survey, were screened for perianal ESBL-E carriage. Perianal swabs(More)
The worldwide prevalence of highly resistant Gram‐negative rods is increasing rapidly. Reliable typing methods are needed to detect and control outbreaks and to monitor the effectiveness of infection control programs in endemic situations. In this study, we investigated the performance of the © DiversiLab typing method in comparison with the amplified(More)
