To assess the molecular epidemiology, clinical impact, treatment outcome and risk factors for infections caused by Enterobacteriaceae producing ESBLs in Italy in a large multicenter observational survey.
- To collect consecutive nonreplicate isolates of Enterobacteriaceae resistant to expanded-spectrum cephalosporins from clinical specimens from inpatients and outpatients.
- To characterize the isolates for resistance phenotypes and for β-lactam resistance mechanisms.
- To investigate the clonality of isolates.
- To analyse the epidemiology of various resistance mechanisms/resistant clones.
- To collect clinical and epidemiological data for patients with infections caused by the ESBL producers.
- To analyse the epidemiology, risk factors and outcome for infections caused by ESBL producers.
