Escherichia coli is a major cause of bloodstream infections and death due to sepsis. It is the most frequent Gram-negative bacterial pathogen recovered from cultures of blood from both community-acquired and nosocomial cases. We set out to determine the relationships between E. coli virulence factors (VFs), phylogenetic groups, and antibiotic resistance and whether bacteremia cases had a community, health care-associated. or nosocomial origin. Isolates from consecutive episodes of E. coli… CONTINUE READING
