Abstract Share this page

Two methods of plasmid characterization, restriction digest patterns and incompatibility grouping, were used to study self-transmissible multi-drug resistance among non-typhi salmonellae (NTS). Resistance to ampicillin and other commonly applied beta-lactams was evaluated by iso-electric focusing and disc inactivation. Of the NTS isolated from blood, 75% were Salmonella typhimurium but those included several different phage types. Over 47% of isolates were resistant to three or more of the readily available drugs including ampicillin, cefuroxime, chloramphenicol, co-trimoxazole, streptomycin and tetracycline. Self-transferable resistance plasmids (c. 100 kb) were essentially of incompatibility group incFIIA, but their restriction fragment patterns revealed a diversity in relatedness. More than half of parent strains and their transconjugants produced beta-lactamases which co-electrophoresed with TEM-1 and OXA-1. This study has observed a disturbingly high prevalence of transmissible multi-drug resistance among NTS which are an important cause of morbidity in HIV-1 seropositive individuals.
