GRAF, Tiago; FUENTEFRIA, Daiane Bopp  and  CORCAO, Gertrudes. Occurrence of multiresistant strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa producing metallo-β-lactamase blaSPM-1 in clinical samples. Rev. Soc. Bras. Med. Trop. [online]. 2008, vol.41, n.3, pp. 306-308. ISSN 0037-8682.

This study analyzed the occurrence of metallo-β-lactamase genes in clinical samples of Pseudomonas aeruginosa from the Hospital São Vicente de Paulo, RS. The genes were analysed by PCR and the susceptibility profiles were studied by diffusion-disk. Forty six strains were analyzed and five strains were positive for blaSPM-1 gene.

Keywords : Metallo β-lactamases; Pseudomonas aeruginosa; Multiresistance; Carbapenemases.
