Dr. Pooja Jain, Dr. Naveen Saxena
Abstract: AIM: The aim of this study was to determine the prevalence Class-A carbapenemases producing enterobacteriaceae in clinical isolates in MBS Hospital, Kota. MATERIAL AND METHODS:The study period was from September 2018 to March 2019.The samples which were imipenem resistant were tested for carbapenemase production by Modified Hodge Test. RESULT: Out of total 100 isolates of enterobacteriaceae,21 were imipenem resistant of which 17 were carbapenemase producing as detected by Modified Hodge Test . Most common isolates were E.coli and Klebsiella. CONCLUSION: The frequency rate of carbapenemase producing Enterobacteriaceae is increasing many folds .Early identification of carbapenemase producers in clinical infections is immportant to prevent development of hospital-based outbreaks carbapenemase producers..Implementations of appropriate strategies with Over-the-counter use of antibacterial drug should be checked to limit the spread of carbapenem resistant Enterobacteriaceae.
