چکیده

Background & Aims: The production of extended-spectrum-β-lactamases (ESBLs) is the main mechanism of resistance to β-lactam antibiotics. The outbreak of isolates simultaneously possessing several resistance mechanisms to β-lactam antibiotics caused a decrease in sensitivity of the confirmatory tests for ESBL. The aim of this study was the evaluation of the β-lactamase disk test method in the detection of ESBLs in clinical isolates of multidrug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Methods: A total of 100 multidrug-resistant P. aeruginosa isolates were recovered from burn patients. The sensitivity of the isolates to different antibiotics was determined using the standard disk diffusion method. ESBL-producing isolates were detected through the combination disk test with clavulanic acid, double disk synergy test, and β-lactamase disk test. Carbapenemase-producing isolates were detected using the Modified Hodge Test (MHT). The ESBLs genes (blaTEM, blaOXA, blaPER, blaSHV, blaCTX-M and blaPSE) were determined through polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Results: All isolates were multidrug resistant. Only 3 isolates were detected as ESBL-producing isolates through combination disk test. No ESBL-producing isolates were detected through double disk synergy test. Among the 100 studied isolates, 87% were detected as ESBL-producing isolates and 68% as carbpenemase-producing isolates through β-lactamase disk test. . The prevalence of blaTEM, blaOXA, and blaPER among isolates were 97%, 61%, and 13%, respectively. All isolates were negative for blaSHV, blaPSE, and blaCTX-M. Conclusion: According to the results obtained in this study, the β-lactamase disk test is suitable for the detection of ESBLs in multidrug resistant isolates. However, further investigation is required

conclusions this study showed that multiple β-lactamases can be produced in burn isolates. this suggests that use of cephalosporins and carbapenems should be restricted in burn isolates to minimize the development and spread of these multidrug resistant pathogens. results there was 99% resistance to carbenicillin, and ticarcillin, 98% to cotrimoxazole, 96% to ciprofloxacin, and aztreonam, 95% t...

Introduction: The strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa are known as an opportunistic pathogen that can cause infections in humans and animals. Metallo-β-lactamases (MBLs) are the most significant factors of resistance to carbapenem antibiotics in these bacteria. This study was designed to identify the MBLs producing P. aeruginosa isolates in three hospitals of Tehran, Iran. Methods: Tota...
