blaNDM genes, encoding metallo-β-lactamases providing resistance to carbapenems, have been reported in many locations since the initial report in 2008, including in several Enterobacteriaceae isolates in Australia/New Zealand. Here, we compare 4 additional carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae carrying blaNDM-1 isolated in Australia. Two are sequence type ST147, previously associated with blaNDM in Australia and elsewhere. They carry blaNDM-1 and different 16S rRNA methylase genes (armA or… CONTINUE READING
