LP248277-8   Bacterial carbapenem resistance blaVIM gene
Verona integron-encoded metallo-β-lactamase (VIM) is part of a growing family of carbapenemases and includes at least 10 members. VIMs are one of the most common types of carbapenemases, with many variants in at least 23 species of Gram-negative bacilli from more than 40 regions of the world. [PMID:21449842] 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.[PMID:27563634] 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. [PMID:28085553] Source: Regenstrief LOINC
