Özet

Aims: A crucial mechanism of antibiotic resistance of Escherichia coli (E.coli), a member of gram-negative bacteria that cause infections in intensive care units (ICUs), is beta-lactamase production. This study aims to determine extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) production frequency and antibiotic resistance profile of E.coli strains isolated from blood cultures of adult patients in different intensive ICUs at Erciyes University-Kayseri, Turkey.
