Comparison of Epidemiological and Antibiotic Susceptibility Pattern of Metallo-Beta-Lactamase-Positive and Metallo-Beta-Lactamase-Negative Strains of Pseudomonas Aeruginosa

Abstract

BACKGROUND The infections caused by metallo-beta-lactamases (MBLs) producing Pseudomonas aeruginosa are associated with higher rates of mortality, morbidity, and overall healthcare costs compared to non-MBL P. aeruginosa infections. PURPOSE To compare the epidemiologic factors and antibiograms of MBL-positive and MBL-negative P. aeruginosa isolates in a… (More)
