Production of a Klebsiella pneumoniae carbapenemase (KPC) is the most common mechanism of carbapenem resistance in the United States; however, until now, KPC-producing isolates have not been found in western Michigan. Molecular typing of two KPC-producing K. pneumoniae isolates from Michigan showed their similarity to other Midwestern isolates. They were also unrelated to the dominant sequence type observed throughout the United States, multilocus sequence type 258. This could represent… CONTINUE READING
