BACKGROUND Plasmid-mediated AmpC beta-lactamases (PABLs) have been detected in the strains of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella spp., Proteus mirabilis, and Salmonella spp. PABLs may be difficult to detect and might interfere in the therapeutic and infection-control processes. Although several PABL-detection methods based on phenotypes have been reported, the Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute currently does not recommend a routine detection method for PABLs. The aim of this study is to… CONTINUE READING
