concurrent interspecies and clonal dissemination of oxa-48 carbapenemase.several isolates of four different carbapenemase-producing enterobacteriaceae species were recovered from a patient hospitalized for 4 months in a teaching hospital in madrid. these species comprised seven klebsiella pneumoniae belonging to st15, four escherichia coli belonging to st2531, two serratia marcescens and one citrobacter freundii. this patient was the index case of a small outbreak of four patients infected and/or colonized by carbapenemase-producing k. pneumoniae. molecular results i ...201525596781
characterization of mobile genetic elements carrying vim-1 and kpc-2 carbapenemases in citrobacter freundii isolates in madrid.carbapenemase producing citrobacter freundii (cpcf) infections are still uncommon in european countries. here we report a molecular study conducted in a tertiary care facility in southern madrid, spain, from 2009 to 2014 to investigate the epidemiology of cpcf. the blaimp-1,blaimp-2,blakpc,blandm,blaoxa-48,blavim-1 and blavim-2 genes were screened by pcr. molecular typing was carried out by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis analysis (pfge) and multilocus sequence typing (mlst). whole genome seque ...201728711315
