Abstract

Spreading of NDMI-producing klebsiella pneumoniaehas become a great trouble in many Egyptian hospitalized patients. Localizing the source of these isolates is an important step to prevent their spread in this country. This study included 33 NDMI-producing klebsiella pneumoniae that collected from different clinical specimens of patients admitted to different wards at Assiut University Hospitals in Egypt and confirmed to produce blaNDM1 gene by polymerase chain reaction. Isolates were typed by Enterobacterial Repetitive Intergenic Consensus (ERIC). Respiratory samples (51%) were the predominant samples and chestdepartment was the major ward (48.48%) that isolates recovered. ERIC gel profile showed that several identical isolates were found especially in chest ward and between different medical wards of this hospital suggested clonal transmission of NDMI-producing K. pneumoniae. Also, there are differences in the number and size of ERIC-PCR profiles indicated the genetic diversity among NDMI-producing K. pneumoniae isolates. The results of this study may help in tracing and controlling NDM-1-producing K. pneumoniae outbreak by applying effective infection control measures especially in the chest ward of this hospital.
