Abstract

The production of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) by Enterobacteriaceae is an increasing challenge in the treatment of infections. The ESBL type most frequently detected in the last few years is CTX-M, which also has the particular ability to spread in the community (Pitout & Laupland, 2008). In Emilia-Romagna, a northern Italian region with a population of about 4 million, the rate of resistance to beta-lactamase due to ESBL grew rapidly in the period 2003-2006 (Gagliotti et al., 2008a). No data on type of circulating ESBL is available at regional level. This study aims to describe the epidemiology of ESBL by testing a sample of clinical strains of ESBL-producers that were isolated in Emilia-Romagna.
