Researchers identify multidrug-resistant E. coli bacteria from New Jersey patient

from American Society for Microbiology via Medical Xpress

New Jersey researchers have identified what is believed to be the first strain of Escherichia coli bacteria from a patient in the United States that harbored two mobile genes making it resistant to both broad spectrum carbapenem antibiotics as well as colistin, an older antibiotic increasingly used as a last resort for multidrug-resistant infections. Their report is published in mBio, an online open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology. more
