Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae are a serious threat to public health. Infections with CRE are difficult to treat and have been associated with mortality rates as high as 40 to 50 percent. Enterobacteriaceae, a frequent cause of both community- and healthcare-associated infections, can become resistant to carbapenems through various mechanisms, including the production of carbapenemases.
