  • Background Multidrug-resistant (MDR) Acinetobacter spp. acquire antimicrobial agent-resistance genes via class 1 integrons. In this study, integrons were characterized to investigate the antimicrobial resistance mechanisms of MDR Acinetobacter isolates. In addition, the relationship between the integron type and integron-harboring bacterial species was analyzed by using epidemiological typing methods. Methods Fifty-six MDR Acinetobacter spp.-A. baumannii (N=30), A. bereziniae (N=4), A… CONTINUE READING
