Abstract

The horizontal transfer of a plasmid bearing the bla(Kpc-2) gene from K. pneumoniae to E. cloacae infecting the respiratory tract of a patient during meropenem therapy was elucidated. This finding is particularly worrisome, since these drugs are of last resort for multidrug-resistant Gram-negative pathogens. (C) 2017 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. (AU)
