Prevalence of ST131 and ST1193 Among Bloodstream Isolates of Escherichia coli not Susceptible to Ciprofloxacin in a Tertiary Care University Hospital in Korea, 2013 - 2014 by Youngjin Kim, Taesang Oh, You Sun Nam, Sun Young Cho, Hee Joo Lee

We investigated the ST distribution of bloodstream isolates of E. coli that were not susceptible to ciprofloxacin (CIP-NS isolates), collected from 2013 to 2014 in a tertiary care hospital. Fifty-nine CIP-NS isolates were collected. ST131 was the most frequent ST (37.3%) isolate, followed by ST1193 (23.7%). ST131 and ST1193 showed significant differences in ESBL production and lactose fermentation. Further study should be continued on the monitoring of resistant strains.
