Part Description

LP248294-3   Bacterial carbapenem resistance blaIMP gene
Plasmid-mediated IMP-type carbapenemases are currently known to have 17 varieties. Studies have revealed its establishment in Japan in the 1990s in enteric Gram-negative organisms, Pseudomonas species and Acinetobacter species. IMP genes usually co-exist with other resistance genes resulting in multi-drug resistance.
Studies have shown that a high percentage of patients with immunodeficiency and drug resistant nosocomial infections are infected with a VIM or IMP producing organism, particularly when the organism identified is pseudomonas aeruginosa. The two genes are often present together although they can also be present individually. Identifying the presence of these genes is important in monitoring drug resistance and determining the best antibiotic therapy methods.
