CTX-M beta-lactamase-producing Escherichia coli in French hospitals: prevalence, molecular epidemiology, and risk factors.

Abstract : In 2004, 65 CTX-M-producing Escherichia coli isolates were collected from infected patients in four French hospitals. The blaCTX-M-15 genes were predominant. Pulsed-field gel electrophoresis highlighted a clonal propagation of CTX-M-15-producing strains belonging to phylogenetic group B2, notably in the community. The main risk factors for acquiring these isolates were urinary tract infections or the presence of a urinary catheter in diabetic or renal failure patients.
