OBJECTIVES This study was conducted to analyse broad-spectrum cephalosporin-resistant Klebsiella oxytoca strains. METHODS The 57 isolates studied were recovered from clinical specimens (n=23) or from rectal swabs (n=34) during a 26-month period. Antibiotic susceptibility patterns were determined using standard agar diffusion and dilution methods including the synergy test between extended-spectrum cephalosporins and clavulanic acid. ERIC-2 PCR and pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE… CONTINUE READING
