Tigecycline (TGC)-resistant extensively drug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (XDRAB) is an increasing threat in regard to nosocomial infections. The resistance–nodulation–cell division (RND) efflux pump has played an important role in TGC resistance. In this study, total 81 TGC-resistant XDRAB isolates were analyzed for their responses to the efflux pump… CONTINUE READING
