Occurrence of Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamase Producing Enterobacteriaceae Causing Wound Infections

  title={Occurrence of Extended Spectrum Beta-Lactamase Producing Enterobacteriaceae Causing Wound Infections},
  author={P. M. Tumane and Durgesh D. Wasnik},
At present scenario, the extended spectrum beta lactamase (ESBL) producing bacterial pathogen causes various life threatening infections lead to sepsis related mortality. A wide variety of microorganisms, like Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Enterobacteriaceae-like Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli, are involved. Extended-spectrum betalactamases (ESBLs) constitute a growing class of plasmid-mediated ßlactamases which confer resistance to broad spectrum beta-lactam… CONTINUE READING
