Plasmid determined tobramycin and gentamicin resistance in strains of pseudomonas aeruginosa from 2 sydney australia hospitals



Plasmid determined tobramycin and gentamicin resistance in strains of pseudomonas aeruginosa from 2 sydney australia hospitals



Medical Journal of Australia 68-2(6): 283-284, 286-287



Strains of P. aeruginosa resistant to gentamicin, tobramycin, streptomycin and sulfonamide were isolated from patients at 2 Sydney hospitals. The multiple resistance of all these strains was due to a transmissible plasmid. The significance of the identification of this plasmid, in this variety of strains and at 2 hospitals, for the treatment of P. aeruginosa infections is discussed.
