Significant New Threat: New Delhi Metallo- [beta] -Lactamase-1
1 NDM-1 is a novel, plasmid-borne metallo- [beta] -lactamase (MBL) first isolated only in Enterobacteriaceae.
Characterization of a new metallo-
beta lactamase gene, bla(NDM-1), and a novel erythromycin esterase gene carried on a unique genetic structure in K.
Scientists from the Cardiff University have named genes discovered by them after their places of origin, such as Sao Paulo ( SPM- 1 SEuo Paulo metallo-
betalactamase ) and Verona Italy ( Vim- 1 or Verona integron- encoded metallo-
Emergence of Metallo- beta-Lactamase producing Pseudomonas aeruginosa in Pakistan.
Metallo- AY-lactamase-producing clinical isolates of Acinetobacter species and Pseudomonas aeruginosa from intensive care unit patients of a tertiary care hospital.
Objective: To determine the frequency of Metallo-
-lactamase producing Enteriobacteriaceae species.
Owing to plasmid mediated mode of spread of metallo-
carbapenemase among enterobacteriaceae, the risk of nosocomial infections, epidemic outbreaks and increased mortality is of great concern.
Outbreaks in distinct regions due to a single Klebsiella pneumoniae clone carrying a bla VIM-1 metallo-
