Characterization of carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter strains isolated from a highly polluted river

Abstract : Acinetobacter are Gram negative bacteria causing nosocomial hospital-acquired infections and are resistant to antibiotics even to last-resort ones such as carbapenems. They can be found in the environment especially in aquatic systems and more particularly in wastewater due mainly to anthropogenic activities. The aim of this study was to inspect a collection of environmental carbapenem-resistant Acinetobacter strains and isolated in a highly polluted river and characterize the diversity of carbapenemase genes, identify resistance mechanisms to other antibiotics and describe mobile genetic elements associated to resistance traits.
