Global incidence of carbapenemase-producing Escherichia coli ST131.

Abstract

We characterized Escherichia coli ST131 isolates among 116 carbapenemase-producing strains. Of isolates from 16 countries collected during 2008-2013, 35% belonged to ST131 and were associated with blaKPC, H30 lineage, and virotype C. This study documents worldwide incidents of resistance to "last resort" antimicrobial drugs among a common pathogen in a successful sequence type.
