Abstract

Ten carbapenem-resistant (eight isolates and two ) isolates from Yemen were investigated using antimicrobial susceptibility testing, phenotypic carbapenemase detection, multilocus sequence typing (MLST) and replicon typing. Carbapenemase, extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) and plasmid-mediated quinolone resistance determinant genes were identified using PCR and sequencing. All of the 10 carbapenem-resistant were resistant to β-lactams, tobramycin, ciprofloxacin and cotrimoxazole. Imipenem, doripenem and meropenem MICs ranged from 2 to >32 mg l and ertapenem MICs ranged from 6 to >32 mg l. All of the isolates showed ESBL activity in phenotypic tests. Genes encoding were detected in all strains. All strains produced CTX-M-15 ESBL and SHV β-lactamases. TEM-1 β-lactamase was detected in seven isolates. Nine isolates were positive including QnrB1, QnrA1 and QnrS1, and six isolates produced AAC-6′-Ib-cr. MLST identified five different sequence types (STs): ST1399, ST147, ST29, ST405 and ST340. Replicon typing showed the presence of IncFII1K plasmids in four transformants. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first report of NDM-1-producing isolates in Yemen.
