Carbapenem-Resistant Acinetobacter baumannii in U.S. Hospitals: Diversification of Circulating Lineages and Antimicrobial Resistance.

"Despite the urgent danger that CRAb poses, no systematic studies of CRAb clinical and molecular epidemiology have been conducted. " Using whole-genome sequencing, the study Network of Acinetobacter as a Carbapenem-Resistant Pathogen is planned to investigate the clinical characteristics and current population structure of CRAb in U. S. hospital systems. Our results show a shift in the CRAb population in the United States over the past ten years, as well as the importance of real-time monitoring and molecular epidemiology in investigating CRAb dissemination and clinical effects. Clinical CRAb isolates from patient samples and outcomes were collected in the United States to aid in the molecular and clinical epidemiology of CRAb in the United States, and antibiotic susceptibility phenotyping was performed.
