ABSTRACT

We describe the antimicrobial susceptibility to extended-spectrum cephalosporins in non-Typhi Salmonella (NTS) isolated from humans in the United States and explore resistance mechanisms for isolates displaying decreased susceptibility to ceftriaxone or ceftiofur. We further explore the concordance between the newly revised Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) breakpoints for ceftriaxone and the presence of a β-lactamase.
In 2005 and 2006, public health laboratories in all U.S. state health departments forwarded every 20th NTS isolate from humans to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as part of the National Antimicrobial Resistance Monitoring System (NARMS) for enteric bacteria. Minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) were determined by broth microdilution. Isolates displaying decreased susceptibility (MIC ≥ 2 mg/L) to ceftriaxone or ceftiofur were included in the study. The presence of β-lactamase genes was investigated by polymerase chain reaction amplification and sequencing, targeting six different genes (bla(TEM), bla(OXA), bla(SHV), bla(CTX-M), bla(PSE), and bla(CMY)). Plasmid location of bla(CMY) was confirmed by transforming plasmids into Escherichia coli.
Among the 4236 isolates of NTS submitted to NARMS in 2005 and 2006, 175 (4.1%) displayed decreased susceptibility to either ceftriaxone or ceftiofur. By polymerase chain reaction screening, one or more β-lactamase genes could be detected in 139 (80.8%) isolates. The most prevalent resistance mechanism detected was the AmpC β-lactamase gene bla(CMY.) Other β-lactamase genes detected included 11 bla(TEM-1), 3 bla(PSE-1), 2 bla(OXA-1), and 1 bla(CTX-M-15). The ceftriaxone MIC values for the bla(CMY)-containing isolates ranged from 4 to 64 mg/L; all bla(CMY)-bearing isolates were classified as ceftriaxone resistant according to current CLSI guidelines.
Among NTS isolates submitted to NARMS in 2005 and 2006, cephamycinase β-lactamases are the predominant cause of decreased susceptibility to ceftriaxone. The fact that all bla(CMY)-containing isolates were classified as resistant to ceftriaxone (MIC ≥ 4 mg/L) supports the newly revised CLSI breakpoints for cephalosporins and Enterobacteriaceae.

    ABSTRACT: Salmonellosis, an acute invasive enteric infection, is endemic in Bangladesh. We analyzed 128,312 stool samples of diarrheal patients to identify Salmonella spp. during 2005-2013. A total of 2120 (1.7%) Salmonella spp. were isolated and the prevalence of Salmonella spp. decreased significantly over time (2→1%, P < 0.001). Among the typhoidal Salmonella (TS) serogroups, S. Typhi was predominant (404, [65.1%]) followed by S. Paratyphi B (139, [22.4%]) and S. Paratyphi A (78, [12.6%]). Of the nontyphoidal Salmonella (NTS) isolates, the serogroup C1 (560, [37%]) was predominant followed by B (379, [25%]), C2 (203, [14%]), E (127, [9%]), and D (94, [6%]). Most of the resistance was found towards nalidixic acid (40%), ampicillin (36%), cotrimoxazole (20%), chloramphenicol (13%), ciprofloxacin (4%), and ceftriaxone (4%). Interestingly, 32% of the isolates showed reduced susceptibility to Cip. Multiantibiotic resistance (MAR, ≥3 drugs) was more common among TS than NTS strains (P < 0.001). Among the representative ceftriaxone-resistant isolates, bla TEM gene was detected among 88% (7/8) of the strains, whereas only one strain of S. Typhi was positive for both bla TEM and bla CTX-M genes. The study reflects higher prevalence of MAR Salmonella spp. and is the first to report the bla TEM gene mediated ESBL production among Salmonellae in Bangladesh. Emergence of MAR Salmonella spp. in particular ESBL strains should be considered a public health concern.

    ABSTRACT: To increase understanding of community-acquired resistance, stool samples from 477 nonhospitalized persons in Maryland and Michigan, from 2004 to 2008, were screened for ceftriaxone resistance. Seven (1.5%) yielded ceftriaxone-resistant Escherichia coli; one isolate was resistant to all eight antimicrobial classes routinely tested: aminoglycosides, β-lactam/β-lactamase inhibitor combinations, cephems, penicillins, folate pathway inhibitors, phenicols, quinolones, and tetracyclines. The extensively resistant isolate was from a 50-year-old woman who denied antimicrobial use, hospitalization, or international travel within 6 months. Meat (beef, chicken, and pork) and eggs were consumed within 1 month before stool collection. Further studies are warranted to understand potential sources, including the food supply, of resistant E. coli.
