  • OBJECTIVE To determine the clonal spread of carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (CRAB) in the patients and their environment at BMA Medical College and Vajira Hospital. MATERIAL AND METHOD A prospective study on CRAB isolated from the clinical specimens of 30 patients and 300 from their environmental samples were carried out from September 1-15, 2008. The CRAB isolates were genotyped using PCR-based typing method. RESULTS Twenty-six (86.7%) and 20 (66.7%) cases of 30 patients had… CONTINUE READING
