Colonisation with Escherichia coli resistant to "critically important" antibiotics: a high risk for international travellers
Antimicrobial resistance among community-acquired isolates of Escherichia coli is increasing globally, with international travel emerging as a risk for colonisation and infection. The aim was to determine the rate and duration of colonisation with resistant E. coli following international travel.

Swabs were cultured selectively to identify E....[Show more]
