KPC-type carbapenemases are emerging resistance determinants in Klebsiella pneumoniae and other gram-negative pathogens, being an increasingly important mechanism of acquired resistance to carbapenems and other -lactams (9, 10). KPC producers have recently undergone an important dissemination in the United States, Israel, and Greece and have been sporadically detected elsewhere in Europe, Latin America, and Asia (see references 1, 5, and 9 and references therein). Population analyses of KPC… CONTINUE READING
