Genomic landscape of extended-spectrum β-lactamase resistance in Escherichia coli from an urban African setting

Abstract:

Efforts to treat Escherichia coli infections are increasingly being compromised by the rapid, global spread of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). Whilst AMR in E. coli has been extensively investigated in resource-rich settings, in sub-Saharan Africa molecular patterns of AMR are not well described. In this study, we have begun to explore the population structure and molecular determinants of AMR amongst E. coli isolates from Malawi.Ninety-four E. coli isolates from patients admitted to Queen's ...
