Risk factors for antimicrobial resistance in patients with Escherichia coli bacteraemia related to urinary tract infection
This study aimed to identify risk factors for antimicrobial resistance in Escherichia coli bacteraemia related to UTI.
This study showed a high prevalence of trimethoprim resistance and MDR in patients with E. coli bacteraemia related to UTI. This supports the withdrawal of trimethoprim from first-line treatment of UTIs in patients with risk factors for trimethoprim resistance. It has also identified risk factors for MDR in E. coli bacteraemia.
