Association between antimicrobial consumption and resistance rate of Escherichia coli in hospital settings

  16 December 2022

This study aims to quantify antimicrobial consumption (AMC) and antimicrobial resistance (AMR) in tertiary care hospitals in Pakistan. 

This observational study was conducted at two tertiary care hospitals of Pakistan over a 1-year period. The AMC and resistance patterns of Escherichia coli isolates collected from hospitals were observed and analysed using the pearson correlation coefficient.

This data documented a significant association between AMC and resistant rates for multiple antimicrobial agents.
