Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae, including strains from multiple species harboring metallo-β-lactamases (IMP, NDM or VIM) and non-metallo (KPC) carbapenemases, as well as those combining an extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) enzyme with porin loss, present an increasingly urgent clinical danger. The aim of this study was to characterize the carbapenemases and ESBLs in carbapenem-non-susceptible (CNS) Enterobacter cloacae (E. cloacae) isolates from a Chinese teaching hospital.
