Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

In the context of a large outbreak of OXA-48-producing Enterobacteriaceae (OXA-E) in a Dutch hospital we determined risk factors for acquisition of OXA-E.

PATIENTS AND METHODS:

A matched case-control study was performed in which cases (culture positive for OXA-E) were matched 1:3 to controls (culture negative for OXA-E) based on hospital ward, index date (±1 week) and time exposed in the hospital (best match). Stratified analyses were performed for patients with OXA-E producing and not producing ESBL. Potential risk factors included age, gender, surgery and ICU admission within 30 days preceding the index date, presence of comorbidities and in-hospital antibiotic treatment within 30 days preceding the index date. Data analysis was performed using multivariable conditional logistic regression with Firth correction.

RESULTS:

In total, 73 cases were matched to 211 controls. In the multivariable conditional logistic regression model, male gender (OR 2.63, 95% CI 1.25-5.53), age (per year increase, OR 1.03, 95% CI 1.00-1.05) and use of fluoroquinolones within 30 days preceding the index date (OR 2.98, 95% CI 1.06-8.41) were risk factors for acquisition of OXA-E. In the stratified multivariable conditional logistic regression model, quinolone use was a risk factor for the acquisition of ESBL-producing OXA-E and surgery was a risk factor for the acquisition of non-ESBL-producing OXA-E.

CONCLUSIONS:

During a large, hospital-wide OXA-E outbreak, male gender, age and previous use of fluoroquinolones were risk factors for acquisition of OXA-E. These findings may help in optimizing screening and isolation strategies in future OXA-E outbreaks.
