Carbapenem resistance in Enterobacteriaceae is increasing and has become a matter of great concern. The aim of this study was to characterize carbapenem-non-susceptible Enterobacteriaceae from a teaching hospital. A total of 49 carbapenem-non-susceptible Enterobacteriaceae clinical isolates recovered in 2007-2010 from the First Affiliated Hospital of Wenzhou Medical College were analyzed by antimicrobial susceptibility testing. The carbapenemase phenotype, outer membrane protein profiles, and… CONTINUE READING
