Comparison of extended spectrum β-lactamases-producing Escherichia coli with non-ESBLs-producing E.coli: drug-resistance and virulence.


BACKGROUND The virulent factors of Escherichia coli (E.coli) play an important role in the process of pathopoiesis. The study aimed to compare drug-resistant genes and virulence genes between extended spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs)-producing E.coli and non-ESBLs-producing E.coli to provide a reference for physicians in management of hospital infection… (More)
