Seventy-two isolates representing 18 serotypes recovered from various food samples collected in Colombia were tested for antimicrobial susceptibilities. The collection was further characterized for extended-spectrum cephalosporin, aminoglycoside, and tetracycline resistance markers. Multidrug resistant (MDR) isolates were further investigated for class 1 integrons and were evaluated for the presence of conjugative plasmids along with a determination of the incompatibility group by polymerase… CONTINUE READING
