ABSTRACT
The article discusses a research about cases of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Enterobacteriaceae infections. It references the study "A multinational survey of risk factors for infection with extended-spectrum beta-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae in non-hospitalized patients," by R. Ben-Ami et al, published in an issue of "Clinical Infectious Diseases." The survey indicated that 90.5% of the patient-specific Enterobacteriaceae isolates were Escherichia coli, 6.9% Klebsiella species, and 2.5% Proteus mirabilitis.
