Transferable resistance to 3rd generation cephalosporins and aztreonam in strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae producing beta-lactamases with an extended spectrum (ESBL)



Transferable resistance to 3rd generation cephalosporins and aztreonam in strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae producing beta-lactamases with an extended spectrum (ESBL)



Epidemiologie Mikrobiologie Imunologie 48(1): 21-27



The authors demonstrated the transferability of antibiotic resistance genes in nosocomial strains of Klebsiella pneumoniae, isolated from newborn children at the Paediatric University Hospital in Bratislava. Strains were resistant to cefotaxime, ceftazidime and aztreonam. The determinants of resistance (carbenicillin, cephaloridine, cefotaxime, ceftazidime and aztreonam) were transferred to recipient strains of Escherichia coli K-12 and Proteus mirabilis P-38.
