Clinical significance of infections caused by plasmid-mediated AmpC β-lactamases and extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli

Escherichia coli frequently causes both nosocomial and community-acquired infections, and antimicrobial resistance in E. coli is a growing problem worldwide. Resistance to broad-spectrum antibiotics in E. coli is often mediated by the production of extended-spectrum b-lactamases (ESBLs) [1]. In recent years, some E. coli strains have been isolated that… CONTINUE READING
