Recently, CTX-M-type extended-spectrum-β-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli strains have emerged worldwide. In particular, E. coli with O antigen type 25 (O25) and sequence type 131 (ST131), which is often associated with the CTX-M-15 ESBL, has been increasingly reported globally; however, epidemiology reports on ESBL-producing E. coli in Asia are limited. Patients with clinical isolates of ESBL-producing E. coli in the Tribhuvan University teaching hospital in Kathmandu, Nepal, were… CONTINUE READING
