Issue: 
Pages: 
241–4
Synopsis: 
There is identified qnr-mediated quinolone resistance and qnr co-determinants among enterobacteriaceae isolates in Jamaica.

ABSTRACT

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.
