Antimicrobial resistance among enterococci is a global problem. High-level aminoglycoside resistance (HLAR) among enterococci is increasingly being reported world-wide. Aminoglycoside-modifying enzymes (AMEs) are major factors that confer aminoglycoside resistance to enterococci.
This study investigated the prevalence of HLAR enterococci,.. The access to the whole abstract and the presentation file is available to FIP members and to congress participants of that specific congress.
