Since its emergence, carbapenem resistance in these species, both in clinical and colonizing isolates, has been rendered by the production of plasmid-mediated K. pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC). In late 2007, a woman in her early thirties previously diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia, was admitted to the… CONTINUE READING
