  author={Krishna Kumar Patel and Sarita Patel},
  journal={International journal of applied research},
The taxonomic evolution of family Enterobacteriaceae has been a dynamic process and continued throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Today, there are more than 30 distinct genera and more than 100 species within the family. Enterobacter genus of family Enterobacteriaceae has gained in recent years the attention of taxonomists, microbiologists and clinicians alike. The members of genus Enterobacter are motile gram negative enteric bacilli belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae. Enterobacter spp… Expand

Enterobacter spp.: pathogens poised to flourish at the turn of the century
Knowledge of the genus Enterobacter and its role in human disease has expanded exponentially in recent years. The incidence of infection in the hospital and the community has increased. New clinicalExpand
Epidemiologic perspectives on Enterobacter for the infection control professional.
Plasmid analysis, restriction endonuclease analysis of total cellular DNA, pulsed-field electrophoresis, and ribotyping can be valuable in investigating the spread of antibiotic-resistant strains. Expand
Enterobacter bacteremia in the community hospital.
Enterobacter bacteremia is most commonly nosocomially acquired and appears to be a problem in the community hospital and Appropriate therapy improves rates of patient survival. Expand
Biochemical identification of new species and biogroups of Enterobacteriaceae isolated from clinical specimens
Fourteen new groups of Enterobacteriaceae are described for the first time, all of which are biochemically distinct from previously described species, biogroups, and Enteric Groups. Expand
Enterobacter bacteremia. An analysis of 50 episodes.
The most common clinical finding was fever, and factors associated with a poor prognosis were inadequacy of antimicrobial chemotherapy, septic shock, type of underlying disease, clinical condition, and requirement of intensive care. Expand

Antibiotic susceptibility and β‐lactamase production in clinical isolates of Enterobacter spp.
The in vitro susceptibility of 237 clinical isolates of Enterobacter spp. (E. aerogenes, E. agglomerans and E. cloacae; 41, 64 and 132 respectively) to 16 different antibiotics is described. FourExpand
Bacteriocin typing of clinical isolates of Enterobacter cloacae
Bacteriocin typing of E. cloacae isolates may prove useful for controlling hospital infection and several outbreaks of nosocomial cross-infection were discerned retrospectively. Expand
Comparison of ribotyping with conventional methods for the type identification of Enterobacter cloacae
It is concluded that ribotyping is a highly discriminatory and reproducible method for the typing of E. cloacae, but in most outbreaks it offers little increase in discrimination over traditional methods. Expand
