TitleThe molecular epidemiology of plasmid-based dissemination of OXA-48 during a hospital outbreak
Study TypeOther
Abstract Background. A large OXA-48 outbreak in the Netherlands involved the spread of OXA-48-producing Enterobacteriaceae among at least 118 patients, suggesting horizontal transfer of this resistance gene through one or more plasmids. Elucidating transmission dynamics of resistance plasmids is hampered by .. [more]
