The molecular epidemiology of multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter baumannii was investigated in two intensive care units of the V. Monaldi university hospital in Naples, Italy, from May 2006 to December 2007. Genotype analysis by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE), trilocus sequence-based typing (3LST), and multilocus sequence typing (MLST) of A. baumannii isolates from 71 patients identified two distinct genotypes, one assigned to PFGE group A, 3LST group 1, and ST2 in 14 patients and the… CONTINUE READING
