Klebsiella Oxytoca
and symptoms

Diagnosis and prevalence of resistance

image klebsiella oxytoca diagnostic The microbiological diagnosis is carried out via the transfer within respective specimens and the biochemical identification.

Klebsiella are inherently resistant to penicillin G (PENICILLIN G et al) and ampicillin (BINOTAL et al). Cause of natural resistance are beta-lactamases that are largely inhibited by beta-lactamase inhibitors. According to the resistance study the Paul Ehrlich Society for Chemotherapy 5-10% of the strains to fluoroquinolones and 10-15% of strains to cotrimoxazole (BACTRIM et al) are resistant. the spread of ESBL-producing strains is as critical (extended-spectrum beta-lactamases) which bring about resistance to broadly effective cephalosporins [cefotaxime (Claforan et al), ceftazidime (FORTUM et al)], considered. In 2004, the proportion was 7.3% in Klebsiella oxytoca and 12.4% for Klebsiella oxytoca in the middle. In addition, about 20% of the strains of Klebsiella oxytoca against piperacillin (PIPRIL among others) in combination with a beta-lactamase inhibitor are resistant.
