Twenty-three multi-resistant strains of Escherichia coli were isolated at a single hospital in Beijing, China between January 1997 and May 1998. All isolates produced extended spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) as detected by the double disk synergy test and the Etest ESBL strip (AB BIODISK, Solna Sweden). Additional antimicrobial susceptibility testing showed that most isolates were resistant to gentamicin, tobramycin, tetracycline, trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole, ciprofloxacin, and cefepime.
