Variations in antibiotic resistance profile in Enterobacteriaceae isolated from wild Australian mammals

Sherley, Miranda; Gordon, David; Collignon, Peter


We carried out a retrospective analysis of 946 strains of Enterobacteriaceae isolated from wild Australian mammals between 1993 and 1997. The prevalence of resistance to fixed concentrations of 32 antimicrobial agents was determined, and the respective roles that taxonomic family of the host, state of origin and bacterial species play in defining prevalence and range of resistance were investigated. Our results demonstrated a low but widespread prevalence of antimicrobial resistance in wild...[Show more]
