Multiresistant extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae from humans, companion animals and horses in central Hesse, Germany
TLDR
The results indicate active transmission and dissemination of multi-resistant Enterobacteriaceae among human and animal populations.
Multiple ESBL-Producing Escherichia coli Sequence Types Carrying Quinolone and Aminoglycoside Resistance Genes Circulating in Companion and Domestic Farm Animals in Mwanza, Tanzania, Harbor Commonly
TLDR
The findings indicate a pan-species distribution of ESBL-producing E. coli clonal groups in farming communities and provide evidence for plasmids harboring antibiotic resistances of regional and international impact.
Escherichia coli Sequence Type 410 Is Causing New International High-Risk Clones
TLDR
Evidence is found of E. coli ST410 being a highly resistant globally distributed lineage, capable of patient-to-patient transmission causing hospital outbreaks, and of the ST410 lineage being classified with the potential to cause new high-risk clones.
Environmental emission of multiresistant Escherichia coli carrying the colistin resistance gene mcr-1 from German swine farms
TLDR
WGS-based analysis of the environmental E. coli isolates of farm surroundings showed clear links to mcr-1 -harbouring E. Escherichia coli recovered from pig production in Europe as well as from human clinical isolates worldwide, presenting another piece of the puzzle, which further complicates the rapidly evolving epidemiology of plasmid-mediated colistin-resistant E. bacteria.
Chromosomal Locations of mcr-1 and blaCTX-M-15 in Fluoroquinolone-Resistant Escherichia coli ST410
TLDR
The discovery of mcr-1, a plasmidborne resistance gene mediating resistance to colistin, in isolates obtained from humans and animals raises concern about the emergence of pan-resistant Enterobacteriaceae.
Predictors of blaCTX-M-15 in varieties of Escherichia coli genotypes from humans in community settings in Mwanza, Tanzania
TLDR
The overlap of multi-drug resistant bacteria and diversity of the genotypes carrying CTX-M-15 in the community and hospitals requires an overall approach that addresses social behaviour and activity, rationalization of the antibiotic stewardship policy and a deeper understanding of the ecological factors that lead to persistence and spread of such alleles.
