Metapopulation ecology links antibiotic resistance, consumption and patient transfers in a network of hospital wards

  23 September 2019

Here, the authors used metapopulation ecology to explain variations in infection incidences of 17 ESKAPE pathogen variants in a network of 357 hospital wards… Their data establish that both antibiotic use and connectivity measurably influence hospital AMR and provide a ranking of key  antibiotics by their impact on AMR.
