In vitro activities of cephalosporins and quinolones against Escherichia coli strains isolated from diarrheic dairy calves. (1/261)

The in vitro activities of several cephalosporins and quinolones against 195 strains of Escherichia coli isolated from diary calves affected by neonatal diarrhea were determined. One hundred thirty-seven of these strains produced one or more potential virulence factors (F5, F41, F17, cytotoxic necrotizing factor, verotoxin, and the eae gene), but the remaining 58 strains did not produce any of these factors. From 11 to 18% of the E. coli strains were resistant to cephalothin, nalidixic acid, enoxacin, and enrofloxacin. However, cefuroxime, cefotaxime, and cefquinome were highly effective against the E. coli isolates tested. Some significant differences (P < 0.05) in resistance to quinolones between the strains producing potential virulence factors and nonfimbriated, nontoxigenic, eae-negative strains were found. Thus, eae-positive, necrotoxigenic, and verotoxigenic (except for nalidixic acid) E. coli strains were significantly more sensitive to nalidixic acid, enoxacin, and enrofloxacin than nonfimbriated, nontoxigenic, eae-negative strains. Moreover, eae-positive strains were significantly more sensitive to enoxacin and enrofloxacin than F5-positive strains. Thus, the result of this study suggest that the bovine E. coli strains that produce some potential virulence factors are more sensitive to quinolones than those that do not express these factors.  (+info)

Use of an oxacillin disk screening test for detection of penicillin- and ceftriaxone-resistant pneumococci. (2/261)

In a context of worldwide emergence of resistance among Streptococcus pneumoniae strains, early detection of strains with decreased susceptibility to beta-lactam antibiotics is important for clinicians. If the 1-microgram oxacillin disk diffusion test is used as described by the National Committee for Clinical Laboratory Standards, no interpretation is available for strains showing zone sizes of /=2.0 microgram/ml) to penicillin. For ceftriaxone, among 98 strains with no zone of inhibition in response to oxacillin, 68 had intermediate resistance (MIC, 1.0 microgram/ml), and 22 were resistant (MIC, >/=2.0 microgram/ml). To optimize the use of the disk diffusion method, we propose that the absence of a zone of inhibition around the 1-microgram oxacillin disk be regarded as an indicator of nonsusceptibility to penicillin and ceftriaxone and recommend that such strains be reported as nonsusceptible to these antimicrobial agents, pending the results of a MIC quantitation method.  (+info)

Pharmacodynamics of vancomycin for the treatment of experimental penicillin- and cephalosporin-resistant pneumococcal meningitis. (3/261)

With the emergence of beta-lactam antibiotic resistance among strains of Streptococcus pneumoniae, vancomycin has assumed an important role in the treatment of bacterial meningitis. Using the rabbit meningitis model, we evaluated the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of vancomycin in this setting. Animals were given 80 mg/kg of body weight daily in two or four divided doses to determine the penetration and activity of vancomycin in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF); each regimen was administered with and without dexamethasone. Mean peak (2 h) concentrations in CSF that were four- to eightfold higher than the minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC; 0.5 microgram/ml) for the pathogen were adequate for bacterial clearance. In both groups concentrations in CSF remained higher than the MBC for greater than 80% of the respective dosing intervals, and the penetration of vancomycin into CSF was 20%. Mean concentrations in CSF at 24 to 36 h of therapy were lower than those achieved during the first 12 h, consistent with a decline in the level of antibiotic entry into CSF as inflammation wanes. Rates of bacterial clearance were similar for the two regimens, and for all animals cultures of CSF were sterile by 36 h. The coadministration of dexamethasone significantly reduced the penetration of vancomycin into CSF by 29% and significantly lowered the rate of bacterial clearance during the first 6 h in animals receiving 20-mg/kg doses of vancomycin. For animals receiving 40-mg/kg doses, therapeutic peak concentrations in CSF were obtained even with steroid use, suggesting that the effect of steroids may be circumvented by the use of larger daily doses of vancomycin.  (+info)

Molecular basis of AmpC hyperproduction in clinical isolates of Escherichia coli. (4/261)

DNA sequencing data showed that five clinical isolates of Escherichia coli with reduced susceptibility to ceftazidime, ceftriaxone, and cefotaxime contain an ampC gene that is preceded by a strong promoter. Transcription from the strong promoter was 8- to 18-fold higher than that from the promoter from a susceptible isolate. RNA studies showed that mRNA stability does not play a role in the control of AmpC synthesis.  (+info)

In vitro activities of the potent, broad-spectrum carbapenem MK-0826 (L-749,345) against broad-spectrum beta-lactamase-and extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli clinical isolates. (5/261)

An important mechanism of bacterial resistance to beta-lactam antibiotics is inactivation by beta-lactam-hydrolyzing enzymes (beta-lactamases). The evolution of the extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) is associated with extensive use of beta-lactam antibiotics, particularly cephalosporins, and is a serious threat to therapeutic efficacy. ESBLs and broad-spectrum beta-lactamases (BDSBLs) are plasmid-mediated class A enzymes produced by gram-negative pathogens, principally Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae. MK-0826 was highly potent against all ESBL- and BDSBL-producing K. pneumoniae and E. coli clinical isolates tested (MIC range, 0.008 to 0.12 microgram/ml). In E. coli, this activity was associated with high-affinity binding to penicillin-binding proteins 2 and 3. When the inoculum level was increased 10-fold, increasing the amount of beta-lactamase present, the MK-0826 MIC range increased to 0.008 to 1 microgram/ml. By comparison, similar observations were made with meropenem while imipenem MICs were usually less affected. Not surprisingly, MIC increases with noncarbapenem beta-lactams were generally substantially greater, resulting in resistance in many cases. E. coli strains that produce chromosomal (Bush group 1) beta-lactamase served as controls. All three carbapenems were subject to an inoculum effect with the majority of the BDSBL- and ESBL-producers but not the Bush group 1 strains, implying some effect of the plasmid-borne enzymes on potency. Importantly, MK-0826 MICs remained at or below 1 microgram/ml under all test conditions.  (+info)

Carbapenem resistance in Escherichia coli associated with plasmid-determined CMY-4 beta-lactamase production and loss of an outer membrane protein. (6/261)

Three cefoxitin-resistant Escherichia coli isolates from stool specimens of a patient with leukemia were either resistant, intermediate, or sensitive to imipenem. Conjugation experiments showed that cefoxitin resistance, but not imipenem resistance, was transferable. All isolates were shown by isoelectric focusing to produce two beta-lactamases with isoelectric points of 5.4 (TEM-1, confirmed by sequencing of a PCR product) and >8.5 (consistent with a class C beta-lactamase). The gene coding for the unknown beta-lactamase was cloned and sequenced and revealed an enzyme which had 99.9% sequence identity with the plasmid-determined class C beta-lactamase CMY-2. The cloned beta-lactamase gene differed from blaCMY-2 at one nucleotide position that resulted in an amino acid change, tryptophan to arginine at position 221. We propose that this enzyme be designated CMY-4. Both the imipenem-resistant and -intermediate isolates lacked a 38-kDa outer membrane protein (OMP) that was present in the imipenem-sensitive isolate. The lack of an OMP alone did not explain the difference in carbapenem susceptibilities observed. However, measurement of beta-lactamase activities (including measurements under conditions where TEM-1 beta-lactamase was inhibited) indicated that the imipenem-intermediate isolate expressed six- to eightfold less beta-lactamase than did the other isolates. This study illustrates that carbapenem resistance in E. coli can arise from high-level expression of plasmid-mediated class C beta-lactamase combined with an OMP deficiency. Furthermore, in the presence of an OMP deficiency, the level of expression of a plasmid-mediated class C beta-lactamase is an important factor in determining whether E. coli isolates are fully resistant to carbapenems.  (+info)

Diversity of substitutions within or adjacent to conserved amino acid motifs of penicillin-binding protein 2X in cephalosporin-resistant Streptococcus pneumoniae isolates. (7/261)

The sequence of an approximately 1.1-kb DNA fragment of the pbp2x gene, which encodes the transpeptidase domain, was determined for 35 clinical isolates of Streptococcus pneumoniae for which the cefotaxime (CTX) MICs varied. Strains with substitutions within a conserved amino acid motif changing STMK to SAFK and a Leu-to-Val change just before the KSG motif were highly resistant to CTX (MIC, >==2 microgram/ml). Strains with substitutions adjacent to SSN or KSG motifs had low-level resistance. The amino acid substitutions were plotted on the three-dimensional crystallographic structure of the transpeptidase domain of PBP2X. Transformants containing pbp2x from strains with high-level CTX resistance increased the CTX MIC from 0. 016 microgram/ml to 0.5 to 1.0 microgram/ml.  (+info)

Efficacy of beta-lactam and inhibitor combinations in a diffusion chamber model in rabbits. (8/261)

Using a diffusion chamber in rabbits, we evaluated therapy with the combination of ceftriaxone plus the beta-lactamase inhibitor tazobactam in comparison with ceftriaxone alone. One sensitive and one resistant strain of Escherichia coli, Enterobacter cloacae and Klebsiella pneumoniae were inoculated into one of the six diffusion chambers, implanted in the same animal. In order to simulate pharmacokinetics in humans, both substances were administered in decreasing doses. Ceftriaxone was given 0, 2, 4 and 6 h after infection in dosages of 45, 35, 25 and 15 mg/kg of body weight, while tazobactam was administered either in one dose at 0 h, or divided into two doses at 0 and 1 h or 0 and 4 h, or divided into three doses at 0, 1 and 4 h after infection. The ratio of ceftriaxone:tazobactam was fixed at 8:1. Ceftriaxone, in combination with tazobactam, given in one dose immediately after infection showed a significant reduction in bacterial count. All other combinations of ceftriaxone and tazobactam did not differ from ceftriaxone in monotherapy. Co-administration of the beta-lactamase inhibitor tazobactam significantly enhanced the activity of ceftriaxone against all three tested species.  (+info)

Third-generation cephalosporins are a class of β-lactam antibiotics that are often used for the treatment of human infections caused by Gram-negative bacteria, especially Escherichia coli. Worryingly, the incidence of human infections caused by third-generation cephalosporin-resistant E. coli is increasing worldwide. Recent studies have suggested that these E. coli strains, and ... read more their antibiotic resistance genes, can spread from food-producing animals, via the food-chain, to humans. However, these studies used traditional typing methods, which may not have provided sufficient resolution to reliably assess the relatedness of these strains. We therefore used whole-genome sequencing (WGS) to study the relatedness of cephalosporin-resistant E. coli from humans, chicken meat, poultry and pigs. One strain collection included pairs of human and poultry-associated strains that had previously been considered to be identical based on Multi-Locus Sequence Typing, plasmid typing and antibiotic ...

Solid-organ malignancy, connective tissue disease, and a recent history of surgery were more common among pAmpC-producing cases (n = 49), whereas urinary catheter at enrollment, diabetes, and hospitalization in the past year were more common among ESBL-producing cases (n = 233). The factors independently associated with clinical outcome were the following: the ...
A newly published report by researchers from Washington State University in the USA suggests that urine from cattle treated with the antibiotic ceftiofur may select for E. coli strains in soil that are resistant to cephalosporin antimicrobials.. The researchers added urine containing ceftiofur metabolites to mixtures of soil and bovine faeces and incubated them at 23oC and 4oC for various periods. They found that the metabolites broke down quickly at the higher temperature but persisted for up to 23 days at 4oC, creating an advantage for resistant E. coli strains in the soil and allowing them to survive for about two months. It was also demonstrated that the resistant bacteria were then readily able to colonise calves via contaminated bedding.. The report is published in the journal PLoS ONE and can be found here.. ...
The first plasmid mediated AmpC β-lactamase, to be reported was CMY-1, in 1989 [29]. Since then, several plasmid-encoded AmpC β-lactamases (ACC, FOX, MOX, CMY, ACT, etc.) have been reported in several genera of bacteria, including Salmonella spp., Pseudomonas spp., Proteus mirabilis and Klebsiella pneumoniae [7]. Among them plasmid encoded DHA-1; a clinically important AmpC β-lactamase was the first β-lactamase found to be inducible and can be expressed at higher levels in strains having AmpR regulatory gene [11, 30]. This plasmid- mediated β-lactamase is now being increasingly detected in a strain of E. coli worldwide [31-33] and early detection of this β-lactamase (DHA-1) is mandatory for better antibiotic therapy and also to prevent further spread. The present study reports the prevalence of DHA-1 (9%) among E. coli strains in this region which is quite high compared to other studies [30, 32, 33] and typing of these DHA-1 harboring isolates by ERIC PCR revealed diverse haplotypes, ...
Antibiotic resistance in Salmonella has intensified substantially worldwide (19, 25, 33, 42, 46, 47). For years, ampicillin, trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, and chloramphenicol were the recommended antimicrobial agents for severe Salmonellainfections. Rising rates of resistance to these agents have significantly reduced the efficacy of these agents. Consequently, fluoroquinolones and expanded-spectrum cephalosporins have become the recommended antimicrobial agents for invasive Salmonellainfections. Multidrug-resistant, quinolone-resistantSalmonella strains are now being reported (29). The present study describes multidrug-resistant, cephalosporin-resistant Salmonella isolates from both food animals and humans.. Salmonella isolates resistant to broad-spectrum cephalosporins were first reported in the 1980s, and since that time additional isolates have been identified (10, 30). The majority of cephalosporin-resistant Salmonella isolates express an extended-spectrum β-lactamase able to hydrolyze ...
Streptococcus pneumoniae CS109 and CS111 were isolated in the United States in 1991 and have high levels of resistance to expanded-spectrum cephalosporins (MICs of 8 and 32 micrograms of cefotaxime per ml, respectively). CS109, but not CS111, also showed high-level resistance to penicillin. As both strains expressed the serotype 23F capsule, were very closely related in overall genotype, and possessed identical or closely related mosaic pbp1a, pbp2x, and pbp2b genes, it is likely that they have arisen from a recent common ancestor. High-level resistance to expanded-spectrum cephalosporins was entirely due to alterations of penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs) 1a and 2x, since a mixture of the cloned pbp1a and pbp2x genes from the resistant strains could transform the susceptible strain R6 to the full level of cephalosporin resistance of the clinical isolates. Both PBP1a and PBP2x of these strains were more resistant to inhibition by cephalosporins than those of typical highly penicillin-resistant ...
Cephalosporin-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a major public health concern. N. gonorrhoeae of multiantigen sequence type G1407 and multilocus sequence type 1901 is an internationally spreading cephalosporin-resistant clone. We detected 4 cases of infection with this clone in China and analyzed resistance determinants by using N. gonorrhoeae sequence typing for antimicrobial resistance.

Recently, extended spectrum beta lactamase (ESBL)-producing E. coli with a new genotype (blaCTX-M-1) emerged in the Norwegian broiler production pyramid. Occurrence of ESBL-producing bacteria such as E. coli is a global concern because they resist highly important antimicrobials known as third-generation cephalosporins used in human medicine. Development of ESBL-producing bacteria have resulted from the use and misuse of antimicrobials in humans and livestock production. However, Norway hardly use antimicrobials in its broiler production but still detected ESBL-producing E. coli with blaCTX-M-1. Thus, the goal of this study was to examine three questions regarding ESBL-producing E. coli emergence in the Norwegian broiler production pyramid. First, was this emergence a clonal spread of a specific ESBL-E. coli variant with one plasmid? Second, could it have been the clonal spread of several genetically unrelated E. coli variants with different plasmids and third, did a horizontal transfer of ...

Background. Enterobacter species have become increasingly important nosocomial pathogens. However, resistance to cephalosporins often complicates the treatment of Enterobacter infection. This study was conducted to evaluate the predictors of mortality and the impact of cephalosporin resistance on outcome in patients with Enterobacter bacteremia.. Methods. A total of 183 patients with Enterobacter bacteremia were retrospectively analyzed. Broad-spectrum cephalosporin resistance was defined as in vitro resistance to cefotaxime or ceftazidime. The main outcome measure was the 30-day mortality rate.. Results. Of 183 patients, 86 (47%) had bacteremia caused by broad-spectrum cephalosporin-resistant Enterobacter species, and their infections were classified as resistant. The 30-day mortality rate of patients with resistant infections (the resistant group) was significantly higher than that of patients with susceptible infections (the susceptible group) (33.7% vs. 18.6%; P = .021). When the 30-day ...

Results: In 2008, 457 faecal samples from 103 horses were collected, with ESBL-producing E. coli identified in 131 samples (28.7, 95% CI 24.6-33.1). In 2017, 314 faecal samples were collected from 74 horses with ESBL-producing E. coli identified in 157 samples (50.0, 95% CI 44.5-55.5). There were 135 and 187 non-duplicate ESBL-producing isolates from 2008 and 2017, respectively. In 2008, 12.6% of isolates belonged to CTX-M-1 group, all carrying blaCTX-M-1, whilst in 2017, 94.1% of isolates were CTX-M-1 group positive and of these 39.2 and 60.8% of isolates carried blaCTX-M-1 and blaCTX-M-15, respectively. In addition, the prevalence of doxycycline, gentamicin and 3rd generation cephalosporin resistance increased significantly from 2008 to 2017 while a decreased prevalence of phenotypic resistance to potentiated sulphonamides was observed ...
Approximately 80% of the antibiotics used in the US are fed to feed animals. While the FDA has provided guidelines to farmers to limit the use of antibiotics to sick animals only, farmers continue to use antibiotics to increase animal growth. California has passed a state law that prohibits antibiotic use in feed animals except to treat identified sick animals. Once again, a state has acted to protect its population where the FDA has failed to act. The CA law goes into effect in 2018. Researchers are looking at prebiotics, probiotics and anti-microbial herbs as potential substitutes for antibiotics used in feed animals.. The Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides a list of the worst 18 antibiotic resistant microbes. Three are categorized at the Urgent hazard level. Clostridium difficile, Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) and drug-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae (cephalosporin resistance) are the three most dangerous of these mutated organisms. These three microbes ...
A patient in Canada was diagnosed this year with a gonorrhea infection that was resistant to ceftriaxone, one the last available treatments for the increasingly drug-resistant STD.Ceftriaxone is one of only two drugs recommended by WHO and the CDC to treat gonorrhea, the other being azithromycin. The same dual therapy is recommended in Canada.

To the Editor: Spread of multidrug-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a major public health concern. Effective antimicrobial therapy is a key element in gonorrhea control. However, N. gonorrhoeae has developed resistance to multiple classes of antimicrobial drugs, including β-lactams, tetracyclines, and fluoroquinolones (1-3). Even an extended-spectrum oral cephalosporin-resistant, cefixime-resistant N. gonorrhoeae has emerged, and cefixime has now been withdrawn from use in Japan. Best practice treatment is limited to injectable extended-spectrum cephalosporins, such as ceftriaxone and spectinomycin. The emergence of ceftriaxone-resistant N. gonorrhoeae threatens effective disease control.. We identified a novel ceftriaxone-resistant N. gonorrhoeae isolated from a 31-year-old female commercial sex worker; MIC of ceftriaxone for this isolate was high (2 µg/mL). The woman visited a clinic in Kyoto for a routine examination for sexually transmitted infections in January 2009. Although she had no ...
In 2016, we identified a ceftriaxone-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae isolate in China. The strain genotype was identical to the resistant clone FC428 that originated in Japan. Enhanced international collaborative surveillance programs are crucial to track the transmission of the ceftriaxone-resistant clones ...
Resistance to cephalosprins due to the production of extended spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) or plasmid mediated AmpC beta-lactamases is increasingly found in infections in humans outside the hospital. The genes encoding for these beta-lactamases are located on mobile DNA (plasmids), which can be transferred between bacterial species. Although the source of ... read more these bacteria is unknown, a food-borne source cannot be excluded. From 2003 to 2007 cefotaxime resistance increases in bacteria from broilers, but not in isolates from calves, pigs and dairy cows. Cefotaxime resistance is indicative for the presence of ESBLs or plasmid mediated AmpC beta-lactamases. Molecular typing of the resistance genes and the plasmids of Escherichia coli and Salmonella isolates from broilers revealed the presence of a variety of ESBL/AmpC genes: blaCTX-M-1, blaCTX-M-2, blaTEM-52, blaSHV-2, blaTEM20, blaACC-1 and blaCMY-2, located on plasmids: IncI1, IncHI2/P, IncK and some untypeable plasmids. A study ...
Antimicrobial therapy for Neiserria gonorrhoeae is a major public health concern with high rates of resistance to penicillin, tetracycline and fluoroquinolones detected in England and Wales in the Gonococcal Resistance to Antimicrobials Surveillance Programme (GRASP) (GRASP 2008 Report: Trends in Antimicrobial Resistant Gonorrhoea. Health Protection agency. http://www.hpa.org.uk/Publications/InfectiousDiseases/HIVAndSTIs/0906GRASP2008/ last accessed 26 July 2010). Currently, third-generation oral cephalosporins, such as cefixime or injectable ceftriaxone, are recommended as first-line therapy. However, low-level increases in minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) for cephalosporins are now widely reported,1 and reports of azithromycin resistance2 further highlight reduced therapeutic options. Recommendations to limit spread of cephalosporin resistance may well include combination and even prolonged therapy, but these undermine clinical desirability for a single observable dose.. However, there ...

Fusidane-type antibiotics represented by helvolic acid, fusidic acid and cephalosporin P1 are a class of bacteriostatic agents, which have drawn renewed attention because they have no cross-resistance to commonly used antibiotics. However, their biosynthesis is poorly understood. Here, we perform a stepwise introduction of the nine genes from the proposed gene cluster for helvolic acid into Aspergillus oryzae NSAR1, which enables us to isolate helvolic acid (~20 mg L-1) and its 21 derivatives. Anti-Staphylococcus aureus assay reveals that the antibacterial activity of three intermediates is even stronger than that of helvolic acid ...

The objective of this study was to correlate resistance mutations of extended spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBL) and AmpC beta-lactamases and virulence factors (VF) with 30-day mortality in patients treated with either piperacillin-tazobactam or carbapenems. A post-hoc analysis on 123 patients with ceftriaxone-resistant Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae bacteremia treated empirically with piperacillin-tazobactam and carbapenems was performed. Beta-lactamase resistance mutations and VF were identified by whole genome sequencing (WGS). The primary endpoint was 30-day mortality. Multivariate analyses were performed using logistic regression. WGS showed diverse multilocus sequence types (MLST) in 43 K. pneumoniae strains, while ST131 predominated in E. coli strains (57/80). CTX-M was most commonly detected (76/80 [95%] of E. coli; 39/43 [91%] of K pneumoniae.), followed by OXA (53/80 [66%] of E. coli; 34/43 [79%] of K. pneumoniae). A significant correlation was found between the number of ...
One strain of Escherichia coli and two strains ofKlebsiella pneumoniae that had high levels of resistance to cefotaxime were isolated from the blood of patients in Seoul National University Childrens Hospital in 1995 and 1996. One strain ofShigella sonnei isolated from a pediatric patient on Cheju Island in 2000 also had a high level of cefotaxime resistance. By disk susceptibility testing, the strains were resistant to amoxicillin, cephalothin, and cefotaxime but were susceptible to ceftazidime, cefoxitin, and amoxicillin-clavulanic acid. Isoelectric focusing showed that the four strains produced a β-lactamase with an isoelectric point (pI) of 8.0. PCR with SHV-specific primers (3) was negative for all strains. Cefotaxime resistance was transferred by conjugation (9) from K. pneumoniaestrain 95151 along with a plasmid of 160 kb to E. coli J53 Azir (met proazide resistant) to produce E. coli J53 Azir/pMG267.

Investigation of an acute gastroenteritis outbreak involving &gt;100 persons at a summer camp in Girona, Spain, in June 2002 led to the detection of Salmonella and extended-spectrum cephalosporin-resistant Escherichia coli (ESCREC). Stool cultures were performed for 22 symptomatic campers, three asymptomatic food handlers, and 10 healthy household members. Of the 22 campers, 19 had Salmonella enterica, 9 had an ESCREC strain carrying an extended-spectrum β-lactamase, and 2 had a second ESCREC strain carrying a plasmidic cephamycinase. Related ESCREC were detected in two (salmonella-negative) asymptomatic food handlers and in none of the healthy household members. Fecal ESCREC and its β-lactamases and plasmids were extensively characterized. Three of the five ESCREC clones were recovered from multiple hosts. The apparent dissemination of ESCREC suggests a food or water vehicle. The observed distribution of resistance plasmids and β-lactamase genes in several clones indicates a high degree of
