Transmission of Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae in US hospitals

  02 October 2022

Carbapenem-resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae (CRKp) is the most prevalent carbapenem-resistant Enterobacterales in the United States. We evaluated clustering of CRKp in hospitalized patients in US hospitals.

Widespread intra-system and inter-system transmission of CRKp was identified in hospitalized US patients. Employing different methods for assessing genetic similarity resulted in only minor differences in interpretation.
