Emergence of a KPC-3-Producing Escherichia coli ST69 as a Cause of Bloodstream Infections in Italy

Microbial Drug Resistance : MDR : Mechanisms, Epidemiology, and Disease
Daniele Roberto GiacobbeClaudio Viscoli

Abstract

The spread of carbapenem-resistant gram negatives is a global emergency, and surveillance of new resistant clones is critical from both public health and clinical standpoints. Herein, we describe the emergence of a KPC-3-producing Escherichia coli ST69 as a cause of bloodstream infection in two Italian patients.
