Regional spread of an atypical ESBL-producing Escherichia coli ST131H89 clone among different human and environmental reservoirs in Western Switzerland. Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 68(2):e0092523.

Abstract

We describe the inter-regional spread of a novel ESBL-producing Escherichia coli subclone (ST131H89) in long-term care facility residents, general population, and environmental water sources in Western Switzerland between 2017 and 2020. The study highlights the importance of molecular surveillance for tracking emerging antibiotic-resistant pathogens in healthcare and community settings.
