Extremely Drug-Resistant Salmonella enterica Serovar Senftenberg Infections in Patients in Zambia.
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article › Research › peer-review
Two cases of extremely drug-resistant Salmonella enterica serovar Senftenberg isolated from patients in Zambia were investigated by utilizing MIC determinations and whole-genome sequencing. The isolates were resistant to, and harbored genes toward, nine drug classes, including fluoroquinolones and extended-spectrum cephalosporins, contained two plasmid replicons, and differed by 93 single-nucleotide polymorphisms.
