BACKGROUND The human and animal intestinal tract harbors a complex community of microbes which enables bacteria to inherit antibiotic resistance genes. The aims of this study were to investigate clonality, antimicrobial resistance, prevalence and gene cassette arrays of class I and II integrons among commensal Escherichia coli from human and animals.

It is believed that high antibiotic consumption and horizontal transfer of resistance genes are two major causes of antibiotic resistance in bacteria. To confirm or reject this belief, we studied the role of drug administration in antimicrobial resistance (AMR), prevalence of Class I and II integrons and integron-mediated resistance in Escherichia coli(More)
