The co-existence of carbapenemase, 16S rRNA methylase and mutated quinolone resistance-determining regions (QRDRs) can cause serious difficulty in treating infections with multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii. In this study, we aimed to determine the mechanisms of imipenem, amikacin and ciprofloxacin resistance in A. baumannii isolates with… CONTINUE READING
