ABSTRACT
The study reports for the first time the identification of CTX-M-14-like and CTX-M-27 like extended-spectrum â-lactamases (ESBLs) belonging to the CTX-M-9 group in Klebsiella pneumoniae and Escherichia coli isolated from the neonatal stool in India. The plasmid carrying the blaCTX-M-9 group in both the isolates was transferable. Till date, no other CTX-M group, except the CTX-M-1 group, has been reported from India. A total of 77% of the neonates had ESBL-producing K. pneumoniae or E. coli in their stool, and blaCTX-M-15 was the predominant ESBL gene. Although the CTX-M-9 group was found in the stool and did not cause infection, the detection of the CTX-M-9 group might be a prelude to future infections.
