The prevalence and characterization of Class 1 integrons has been performed in eighty three strains of Shigella spp., isolated between 1995 and 2000 from patients with traveler's diarrhea. A low prevalence (13.25%) was recorded. Nine different integrons were found among 11 multiresistant strains, with a total of 10 different gene cassettes encoding for resistance to trimethoprim (dfrA1, dfrA5, dfrA7, dfrA12, and dfrA15), aminoglycosides (aadA1a and aadA2), beta-lactam antibiotics (oxa2) or ORF… CONTINUE READING
