Abstract

Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates have acquired resistance to antibiotics such as novel beta-lactams. The aim of this study was to investigate the blaPER-1, bla(VEB-1), and bla(PSE-1) genes among isolates of P. aeruginosa among intensive care unit (ICU) patients. Sixty-five isolates were collected. The antibiotic susceptibility testing and combined disk tests were performed to detect the isolates producing extended spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) among ceftazidime-resistant isolates. Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) amplification of bla(PER-1), bla(VEB-1), and bla(PSE-1) genes was conducted. Ten (15.3) isolates were ESBL-positive, of which 40 (n = 4) belonged to males and 60 (n = 6) were collected from females. Moreover, two and one isolates harbored bla(PER-1) and bla(VEB-1) genes, respectively. (C) 2016 Published by Elsevier Ltd. on behalf of Ministry of Health, Saudi Arabia.
