  1. Emergence and nosocomial transmission of ampicillin-resistant enterococci.

    Article - En anglais

    Between 1986 and 1988, the incidence of ampicillin-resistant enterococci increased sevenfold at a university-affiliated hospital.

    Forty-three patients acquired nosocomial infections with ampicillin-resistant enterococci, most of which were also resistant to mezlocillin, piperacillin, and imipenem.An analysis of plasmid and chromosomal DNAs of isolates revealed that the increase was due to an epidemicof 19 nosocomial infections that yielded closely related strains of Enterococcus faecium and to a significant increase in the incidence of nonepidemic, largely unrelated strains of ampicillin-resistant enterococci.
