The prevalence of pAmpC was investigated in 534 E. cloacae, 137 S. marcescens and 104 C. freundii collected from 2005 to 2014 in China. The presence of pAmpCs was significantly linked to blaCTX-M and class 1 integron.
Background: A total of 775 consecutive non-duplicate isolates of Enterobacteriaceae (534 E. cloacae, 137 S. marcescens and 104 C. freundii) were collected from 2005 to 2014 at 34 hospitals in Anhui Province, China.

There is identified qnr-mediated quinolone resistance and qnr co-determinants among enterobacteriaceae isolates in Jamaica.
Objective: Quinolone resistance is usually caused by various chromosomal mutations, but has been more recently associated with plasmids which carry the qnr determinant. The aim of this study is to investigate the prevalence of qnr genes in clinical isolates of Enterobacteriaceae in Jamaica.
