Case Study
A case study on the New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase-1 (NDM-1) in Enterobacteriaceae. According to the authors, NDM-1 carbapenemase is resistant to all β-lactam antibiotics available in Canada. They noted that international travel is a huge factor in the infection with antibiotic-resistant organisms.
