PREVALENCE OF ESBL AND MBL IN ACINETOBACTER BAUMANII ISOLATED FROM IranIAN PATIENTS DURING THE RECENT 10 YEARS

Article excerpt

Background: Beta-lactam resistance appears to be primarily caused by β-lactamase production, including the extended spectrum β-lactamases, AmpC beta-lactamases, metallo-β- lactamases and oxacillinases. They are mostly consisting of KPC, VIM, IMP, NDM, and OXA-48 types. The aim of this study was to review the data about prevalence of ESBL and MBL in A. baumanii isolated from Iranian patients that were published during the recent 10 years.

Methods: The scientific search and data collection were done by two researchers. Acinetobacter, MBL, ESBL and anti- biotic resistance in Persian and English were used as key- words. Scientific database including google scholar, pubmed, and all medical scientific journals and also abstracts of the Microbiology Congress were searched. All articles related to detection of MBL and ESBL using phenotypic methods (E- test, Double Disk Synergy Test, Combined Disk, Hodge test) and genotypic (PCR) were collected. The data including the method of detection, number of isolates, number of ESBL and MBL and their genotypes and . …
