ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE(2)

     Home  

NDM-1 is an enzyme that makes bacteria resistant to a broad range of beta-lactam antibiotics. NDM-1 was first identified in December 2009 in a patient hospitalized in New Delhi with an infection caused by Klebsiella pneumoniae. It was later detected in bacteria in India, Pakistan, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Canada.
