Extensively Drug-Resistant New Delhi Metallo-β-Lactamase–Encoding Bacteria In The Environment, Dhaka, Bangladesh, 2012
Extensively Drug Resistant
Multilocus Sequence Typing
New Delhi Metallo-β-lactamase
Description:Carriage of the New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase variant 1 (NDM-1) enables drug resistance to move between communities and hospitals. In Bangladesh, we found the blaNDM-1 gene in 62% of environmental waters and in fermentative and nonfermentative gram-negative bacteria. Escherichia coli sequence type (ST) 101 was most commonly found, reflecting a common global relationship between ST101 and NDM-1.
