A multiple antibiotic resistance, beta-lactamase-producing strain of Haemophilus parainfluenzae was isolated from a patient with sexually transmitted urethritis that was contracted in Northwest Africa. The strain was found to harbor a small (3.2 megadaltons) plasmid encoding for beta-lactamase production, which was successfully mobilized to Escherichia coli in triparental mating experiments by means of a broad host-range Inc-W conjugative plasmid. Since H. parainfluenzae is believed to be a… CONTINUE READING
