- Complicated urinary tract infections: practical solutions for the treatment of multiresistant Gram-negative bacteria. Pallett, Ann; Hand, Kieran // Journal of Antimicrobial Chemotherapy (JAC);Nov2010 Supplement 3, Vol. 65 Issue suppl_3, piii25
Resistance in Gram-negative bacteria has been increasing, particularly over the last 6 years. This is mainly due to the spread of strains producing extended-spectrum Î²-lactamases (ESBLs) such as CTX-M enzymes or AmpC Î²-lactamases. Many of the isolates producing these enzymes are also...
