Between February 2005 and January 2006 in Srinagarind Hospital, Thailand, 44 from 1730 isolates (2.5%) of Escherichia coli and 8 from 982 isolates (0.8%) of Klebsiella pneumoniae were found to produce plasmid-mediated AmpC β-lactamases (pAmpCs) as detected by a cefoxitin-Hodge test followed by a multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) technique. Fifteen of the 52 pAmpC-producing isolates also produced extended-spectrum β-lactamases. The ampC genes found in both organisms were bla(CMY-2) (46… CONTINUE READING
