CTX-M-producing Klebsiella spp. in a Brazilian hospital: what has changed in 6 years?Diagn Microbiol Infect Dis. 2010 Oct; 68(2):186-9.DM
CTX-M-encoding genes from Klebsiella spp. strains isolated in 2000 and 2006 were characterized as well as their genetic environment. CTX-M-2 variants were predominant in Klebsiella pneumoniae strains, which showed a greater variability in bla(CTX-M) genes, integrons, and plasmids in 2006 when compared to strains collected in 2000. CTX-M-9-producing Klebsiella oxytoca was identified in 2000 as clonal dissemination.
