Avariety of metallo-lactamase (M L) enzymes have been reported from Gram-negative organisms collected in Italy, including VIM-1, the second acquired M L to be reported; IMP-13; VIM-2; IMP-19; and FIM-1 (1–6). A survey conducted from September to December of 2004 in 12 Italian cities demonstrated a low overall prevalence of carbapenemase-producing organisms, but these strains were widespread across Italy, with a great genetic diversity of M L genes and genetic elements (1). More recently, an… CONTINUE READING
