This study was performed to investigate the prevalence and molecular epidemiology of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates from Korea that produce enzymes with extended-spectrum (ES) activity to β-lactams. A total of 205 non-duplicate P. aeruginosa clinical isolates were collected from 18 university hospitals in Korea. PCR and sequencing experiments were performed to identify genes encoding β-lactamases. PCR mapping and sequencing of the regions surrounding the β-lactamase genes were performed… CONTINUE READING
