Spread of CTX-M-15 Extended Spectrum β-lactamases Encoding Genes Among Enterobacteriaceae in the Middle Eastern Region
AbstractThe CTX-M type enzymes have become the most prevalent extended spectrumβ-lactamases (ESBLs) worldwide. Among the CTX-M type enzymes, CTX-M-15 is themost widespread and has been reported from all continents. It has been recoveredfrom different Enterobacteriaceae and has been isolated from both community andhospital acquired infections. This review primarily highlights the prevalence of CTXM-15 in addition to other ESBLs in the Middle East. Detection of any type of ESBL isof importance in therapeutic treatment.
