Bloodstream infections in patients with rectal colonization by Klebsiella pneumoniae producing different type of carbapenemases: a prospective, cohort study (CHIMERA study)
The CHIMERA study investigates the hypothesis that intestinal colonization by different types of carbapenemase-resistant K. pneumoniae (CR-Kp) leads to different risks for BSI caused by the same colonising organism. The results of this cohort study are here reported: among CR-Kp rectal carriers the risk of developing BSI by the same colonizing organism is higher in NDM-producing Kp than in KPC-producing Kp rectal carriers.
