β-lactamase production has been sporadically reported in the emerging Kingella kingae pathogen but the phenomenon has not been studied in-depth. We investigated the prevalence of β-lactamase production among K. kingae isolates from different geographical origins and genetically characterized β-lactamase-producing strains. Seven hundred and seventy-eight isolates from Iceland, the USA, France, Israel, Spain and Canada were screened for β-lactamase production and, if positive, were characterized… CONTINUE READING
