DOI: 10.1089/fpd.2012.1159 Characterization of Extended-Spectrum Beta-Lactamase–Producing Salmonella enterica Serotype Brunei and Heidelberg at the Hussein Dey Hospital in Algiers (Algeria) Rachida Kermas,1 Abdelaziz Touati,1 Lucien Brasme,2 Elisabeth Le Magrex-Debar,2 Sadjia Mehrane,3 Franc¸ois-Xavier Weill,4 and Christophe De Champs2 The purpose of this work was to study the genetic determinants responsible for extended-spectrum cephalosporin(ESC) resistance of Salmonella collected during the period of 1995–2008 at the Hussein Dey hospital in Algiers (Algeria).
Fourteen ESC-resistant Salmonella isolates were tested towards 22 antimicrobial agents. Polymerase chain reaction(PCR) and sequencing were used to determine the underlying genetic determinants responsible for the extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) phenotypes. Enterobacterial Repetitive Intergenic Consensus PCR was employed totype the isolates. All tested isolates were resistant to ticarcillin, ticarcillin-clavulanate, piperacillin, cefuroxime,aztreonam, ceftazidime, cefotaxime (except two isolates), cefepime, and cefpirome. PCR and DNA sequencingidentified these ESBLs as TEM-48 (n = 6), TEM-4 (n = 3), CTX-M-15 (n = 4), and one new TEM, designated TEM-188.
Thus, continued surveillance for the presence of ESBL-producing (non-typhoidal) salmonellae in Algeria is essential.
