Bacterial isolates producing Class D OXA-48 carbapenemase may be missed in routine laboratory testing, allowing them to spread undetected. The purpose of the present study was to detect bla(OXA-48) among ESBL-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli isolates collected from a university hospital, Turkey. Ninety-two ESBL-producing isolates (66 E. coli, 26 K. pneumoniae) were obtained in 2010. Antibiotic susceptibility tests were performed using the disc diffusion method and VITEK 2… 
Dissemination Pattern of Multidrug Resistant Carbapenemase Producing Klebsiella pneumoniae Isolates Using Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis in Southwestern Iran
The results of this study revealed the widespread carbapenemase gene between different wards in hospitals as a risk factor for treatment options and there were similar genetic patterns among K. pneumoniae isolates and these patterns were responsible for the distribution of infection in hospitals.
Detection of Extended-spectrum β-Lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae Isolated from Four Provincial Hospitals in Luzon and Genotyping of β-Lactamase (blaCTX-M, blaTEM, blaSHV, and blaOXA-1) Genes
This study showed that blaCTX-M and blaTEM were detected in 10 out of 18 ESBL-positive isolates, while blaSHV was found in 15 out of18 isolates (83.3%).
Surveillance of Antimicrobial Resistance in Hospital Wastewater: Identification of Carbapenemase-Producing Klebsiella spp.
Microbiological surveillance and identification of resistance genes of clinically important pathogens in hospital wastewater can be a general screening method for early determination of under-detected antimicrobial resistance profiles in hospitals and early warning of outbreaks and difficult-to-treat infections.
Carbapenem-resistant Escherichia Coli Among the hospitalized Patients with urinary tract Infections in a tertiary care center of nepal
A high prevalence of carpabenemase producing E. coli in hospital settings is demonstrated and early detection and surveillance of carbapenemases-producers routinely in clinical laboratories is necessary to facilitate effective infection control and to reduce the escalation of resistance.

Multidrug resistant and carbapenemase producing Enterobacteriaceae among patients with urinary tract infection at referral Hospital, Northwest Ethiopia
High rates of MDR were observed among enterobacteriaceae uropathogens; K. pneumoniae and E.coli were the principal MDR isolates and overall prevalence of CPE was 2.73% and all of these strains were 100% ESBL producer.


Coexistence of blaOXA48 and aac(6′)-Ib-cr Genes in Klebsiella Pneumoniae Isolates from Istanbul, Turkey
The coexistence of bla OXA-48 and PMQR in K. pneumoniae isolates may present a significant threat to health, especially in the nosocomial setting.
Detection of metallo β-lactamase production and antibiotic resistance with E-test method in pseudomonas, acinetobacter and klebsiella strains, in Turkey
Investigation of the existence and antimicrobial resistance of MBL-producing strains among carbapenem-resistant Gram-negative bacteria that were isolated from nosocomial infections in patients in an university hospital in Turkey found them to be metallo enzyme producers, with the Etest MBL technique.
Carbapenem-Hydrolyzing Oxacillinase, OXA-48, Persists in Klebsiella pneumoniae in Istanbul, Turkey
Carbapenem resistance may spread among Enterobacteriaceaevia the transferable enzyme OXA-48, which is resistant to all β-lactams, including carbapenems.
Spread of Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates producing OXA-48 β-lactamase in a Tunisian university hospital.
The spread of OXA-48 associated with CMY-4and CTX-M-14-producing K. pneumoniae with reduced susceptibility to extended-spectrum cephalosporins and/or imipenem were described and the blaOXA- 48 gene was shown to be mostly plasmid-borne and associated with insertion sequence IS1999 but not integrons.
Class D OXA-48 Carbapenemase in Multidrug-Resistant Enterobacteria, Senegal
The recent emergence of the plasmid-encoded blaOXA-48 gene in multidrug-resistant Enterobacteriaceae recovered from patients in Dakar, Senegal, in hospitals and in the community is reported.
High prevalence of CTX-M-type beta-lactamase in Escherichia coli isolates producing extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) and displaying antibiotic co-resistance
In the present study, we investigated the prevalence of CTX-M-type beta-lactamase in extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli isolated in our hospital as well as their
Emergence of Oxacillinase-Mediated Resistance to Imipenem in Klebsiella pneumoniae
The high-level resistance to β-lactams of this clinical isolate resulted from peculiar β- lactamases and modification of outer membrane proteins.
Susceptibility of Klebsiella pneumoniae Isolates from Intra-Abdominal Infections and Molecular Characterization of Ertapenem-Resistant Isolates
A total of 2,841 clinical isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae from intra-abdominal infections worldwide were collected in the Study for Monitoring Antimicrobial Resistance Trends (SMART) during 2008 and 2009, finding that 22.4% of isolates had extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs) and ertapenem resistant isolates were found.
Spread of OXA-48-Positive Carbapenem-Resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae Isolates in Istanbul, Turkey
ABSTRACT The first outbreak of carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae isolates producing the plasmid-encoded carbapenem-hydrolyzing oxacillinase OXA-48 is reported. The 39 isolates belonged to
