Abstract

Multidrug-resistant (MDR) Klebsiella pneumoniae is a common infectious pathogen. We performed whole-genome sequencing (WGS) of 39 randomly selected, geographically diverse MDR K. pneumoniae from nine Egyptian hospitals. Clinical sources, phenotypic antibiotic resistance, and hyper-mucoviscosity were documented. WGS data were epidemiologically interpreted and tested for the presence of antibiotic resistance and virulence genes. Based on WGS data, we identified 18 classical multi-locus sequence types (MLST), the most common type being ST101 (23.1%) followed by ST147 (17.9%). Phylogenetic analyses identified small numbers of closely related isolates in a few of the centers, so we mostly documented independent nosocomial acquisition or import from public sources. The most common acquired resistance gene found was bla, detected in 27 isolates (69.2%). Carbapenemase genes encountered were bla (n = 13), bla (n = 1), bla (n = 12), bla (n = 2), and bla (n = 1). Seven strains (18%) contained more than a single carbapenemase gene. While searching for virulence-associated genes, sixteen wzi alleles were identified with wzi137, wzi64, and wzi50 most commonly found in ST101, ST147, and ST16, respectively. Yersiniabactin was the most common virulence factor (69.2%). Hyper-mucoviscosity was documented for 6 out of 39 isolates.This is the first genomic study of MDR K. pneumoniae from Egypt. The study revealed a clear spread of well-known international clones and their associated antimicrobial resistance and (hyper)virulence traits. The clinical situation in Egypt seems to reflect the scenario documented in many other countries and requires close attention.

Introduction: is a challenging pathogen responsible for serious nosocomial infections. Colistin resistance in carbapenem-resistant strains is a critical health problem as it limits the available therapeutic options. The current work aimed to study the reliability of several phenotypic methods for the detection of colistin resistance among carbapenem-resistant isolates in Egypt.

Methods: A total of 22 carbapenem-resistant isolates were recovered. Colistin minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs) were determined using broth microdilution (BMD) and compared to agar dilution (AD), automated system (VITEK-2) and gradient test (E-test) and were analyzed by statistical methods.

Results: Phenotypic testing showed that nine of 22 isolates (40.9%) were colistin-resistant by BMD and seven of them were also resistant by AD, with the categorical agreement (CA) of 72.7% and essential agreement (EA) of 90.9%. Colistin MIC results ranged from 1-8 µg/mL and 1-32 µg/mL by both AD and BMD respectively. Detection of colistin resistance by gradient test and automated system showed high very major error (VME) rates (40.9%) compared to BMD with a lack of CA between them. AD gave moderate agreement with BMD by 90.9% EA, 72.7% CA and only 9.1% VME.

Conclusions: In delineating colistin breakpoints BMD followed by AD method are defined as the only reliable phenotypic methods for colistin resistance evaluation. More rapid and reliable tests, other than BMD and AD, are required for the convenient detection of colistin resistance in the routine clinical microbiology laboratory daily workflow.
