OBJECTIVES Multidrug resistance and antibiotic resistance mechanisms were investigated in 316 Clostridium difficile clinical isolates collected during the first European surveillance on C. difficile in 2005. METHODS MICs of eight different antibiotics were determined using Etest. Reserpine- and carbonyl cyanide m-chlorophenylhydrazone-sensitive efflux was tested using the agar dilution method. Molecular analysis of the resistance mechanisms was performed using PCR assays, PCR mapping and… CONTINUE READING
