We investigated the epidemiology of antibiotic resistance and virulence properties among Pseudomonas aeruginosa clinical isolates collected in 1999 from patients hospitalized in the intensive care units of the centre hospitalier d'Orléans, in France. We compared the totality of the strains from mechanically ventilated patients with pneumonia (33 non… CONTINUE READING
