Abstract

MARQUES, Lívia Érika Carlos et al. Resistance of Klebsiella Pneumoniae clinical isolates: linkage of outer membrane proteins (omps) with production esbls. Braz. J. Microbiol. [online]. 2011, vol.42, n.2, pp. 467-469. ISSN 1517-8382.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1517-83822011000200009.

Three isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae, collected from the University Hospital in Fortaleza, Brazil, were analyzed to determine their resistance to multiple antibiotics. The results of this study showed that the resistance of the clinically isolated bacteria is associated with the production of extended-spectrum beta-lactamases (ESLBs) and loss of outer membrane proteins.

Keywords : Klebsiella pneumoniae; β-lactamase and porin.
