Increased serum resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae strains producing extended-spectrum beta-lactamases



Increased serum resistance in Klebsiella pneumoniae strains producing extended-spectrum beta-lactamases



Antimicrobial Agents and ChemoTherapy 48(9): 3477-3482



The aim of this study was to determine whether there is an association between serum resistance, O serotypes, and the production of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) in Klebsiella pneumoniae. Ninety ESBL-producing and 178 non-ESBL-producing K. pneumoniae isolates gathered in five European countries were O serotyped and tested for sensitivity to the serum's bactericidal effect.
