Transmission dynamics of hyper-endemic multi-drug resistant Klebsiella pneumoniae in a Southeast Asian neonatal unit: A longitudinal study with whole genome sequencing

Abstract:

Background

Klebsiella pneumoniae is an important and increasing cause of life-threatening disease in hospitalized neonates. Third generation cephalosporin resistance (3GC-R) is frequently a marker of multi-drug resistance, and can complicate management of infections. 3GC-R K. pneumoniae is hyper-endemic in many developing country settings, but its epidemiology is poorly understood and prospective studies of endemic transmission are lacking. We aimed to determine the transmission ...
