Cephalosporin-Resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae Clone, China.

Abstract

Cephalosporin-resistant Neisseria gonorrhoeae is a major public health concern. N. gonorrhoeae of multiantigen sequence type G1407 and multilocus sequence type 1901 is an internationally spreading cephalosporin-resistant clone. We detected 4 cases of infection with this clone in China and analyzed resistance determinants by using N. gonorrhoeae sequence typing for antimicrobial resistance.
