Summary Background There has been an increase in the number of carbapenemase-producing organisms documented across the UK over the past 10 years. From these, the ‘big five’ carbapenemases (KPC, OXA-48, IMP, VIM, and NDM) are the most common types r...

Carbapenemases are enzymes, produced by an array of common Gram-negative organisms, which hydrolyse the carbapenem antibiotics, conferring resistance [1]. The main protagonists are the “big five” carbapenemases, KPC, OXA-48, IMP, VIM and NDM, which h... Read More about Prevalence of Carbapenemase Producing Organisms in East London, UK..
