A multiple-drug-resistant strain of Serratia marcescens (serotype O14:H12; bacteriocin type 18), which was recovered repeatedly from the respiratory tract of an intensive care unit patient, yielded 'gray' colony phenotypic variants which were greater than or equal to four-fold less susceptible to amikacin, cefotaxime, and lamoxactam, but not to netilmicin… CONTINUE READING
