Formatted abstract
The global spread of New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase (NDM)-producing Enterobacteriaceae is of significant public health concern. To date, NDM-producing Enterobacteriaceae have been isolated from numerous geographical regions, including Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand. In addition to hydrolysing carbapenems, NDM-producing organisms display resistance to a broad range of antimicrobial classes, primarily due to the presence of additional acquired plasmid-associated resistance genes. As a result, infections caused by these organisms pose a considerable therapeutic challenge...
