In this study, 283 multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii (MDR-AB) bloodstream isolates were collected between 1996 and 2004, from three teaching hospitals located in different regions of Taiwan. Susceptibility data showed that strains carrying class 1 integrons were significantly more resistant (p <0.01) to all tested antibiotics (except aztreonam and chloramphenicol) than strains lacking integrons, Seven types of gene cassette were identified among these strains, including two that have… CONTINUE READING
