Prolonged carriage of resistant E. coli by returned travellers: Clonality, risk factors and bacterial characteristics
The aim of this study was to delineate the potential risks and dynamics of the prolonged carriage of resistant E. coli in returned travellers. A sample of 274 previously collected E. coli resistant to ceftriaxone (CRO), ciprofloxacin, gentamicin and/or nalidixic acid recovered from 102 travellers was studied. Travellers were assessed pre-travel then longitudinally (maximum 6 months) with peri-rectal/rectal swabs. Clonality was determined by REP-PCR and the presence of O25b-ST131 was assessed....[Show more]
