Fluoroquinolone Resistance in Relation to Phylogenetic Background and Iron Uptake Associated Virulence Profile among Urinary Escherichia coli Isolates from HIV and Non-HIV Patients

Introduction: Urinary tract infection is a major cause of morbidity among HIV patients and is more often underestimated in developing countries. Urinary Escherichia coli isolated from HIV and non-HIV patients in South India were analyzed to determine the virulence profile and phylogenetic distribution and their correlation with fluoroquinolone (FQ) resistance. Methods: This study aimed to…
