Abstract

Two clindamycin-erythromycin resistance transfer factors of Bacteroides fragilis, pBF4 and pBFTM10, were analyzed for regions of DNA homology. Although the plasmids were derived from different clinical isolates of B. fragilis and have different sizes, they showed homology in the clindamycin-erythromycin resistance region; no homology could be detected outside of this region.

Antimicrobial Resistance (ASM)

Antimicrobial resistance poses a significant threat to the continued successful use of antimicrobial agents for the treatment of bacterial infections.

Allergy & Infectious Diseases (ASM)

Allergies result from the hyperreactivity of the immune system to some environmental substance and can be life-threatening. Infectious diseases are caused by organisms including bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. They can be transmitted different ways, such as person-to-person. Here is the latest research on allergy and infectious diseases.
