BACKGROUND Bacteria of the Klebsiella genus may cause numerous infections in human, which are often treated with beta-lactam antibiotics. The fundamental mechanism of Klebsiella resistance to penicillins or cephalosporins involves the production of enzymes--extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs). Because of resistance of many Klebsiella spp. strains to beta-lactams, alternative antibiotic therapy can make use of aminoglycosides and quinolones. MATERIAL/METHODS The study analyzed the… CONTINUE READING
