Objectives: Sequence type 1193 is emerging as a new, virulent and resistant lineage among fluoroquinolone resistant Escherichia coli (FQrE. coli). In this study, we investigated the prevalence and molecular characteristics of this clone isolated from a Chinese university hospital. Methods: 73 phylogenetic group B2-FQr-non-ST131 isolates were collected from August 2014 and August 2015 at a Chinese university hospital. Isolates were screened for ST1193 by multilocus sequence typing. E. coli… CONTINUE READING
