Abstract

Abstract
We have investigated the antimicrobial resistance of verocytotoxin-producing Escherichia coli (VTEC) strains isolated from humans, animals, food and environment in Belgium. Resistance was more frequent in human non-O157 as compared to O157 strains from humans or other sources and within non-O157 VTEC, intimin-positive strains were more resistant than intimin-negative strains. We also report the first VTEC producing an IncI1 plasmid-borne blaTEM-52 extended-spectrum beta-lactamase previously associated with Salmonella enterica and E. coli isolates from different origins.
