Nationwide Surveillance and Molecular Characterization of Critically Drug-Resistant Gram-Negative Bacteria: Results of the Research University Network Thailand Study
A large-scale surveillance is an important measure to monitor the regional spread of antimicrobial resistance. We prospectively studied the prevalence and molecular characteristics of clinically important Gram-negative bacilli, including Escherichia coli (EC), Klebsiella pneumoniae (KP), Acinetobacter baumannii complex (ABC), and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) from blood, respiratory tract, urine, and sterile sites at 47 hospitals across Thailand.
The most common carbapenemase gene in MDR-/XDR-PA was blaIMP (29.0%/30.6%), followed by blaVIM (9.5%/25.3%). The findings reiterate an alarming situation of drug resistance that requires serious control measures.
