                     Emergence → Spread
    Genetic Basis of Resistance

    • Spontaneous mutations in endogenous genes
       – Structural genes: expanded spectrum of enzymatic activity, target-site
         modification, transport defect
       – Regulatory genes: increased expression
    • Acquisition of exogenous genes
       – Usually genes that encode inactivating enzymes or modified targets,
         regulatory genes
       – Mechanisms of DNA transfer: conjugation (cell–cell contact);
         transformation (uptake of DNA in solution); transduction (transfer of
         DNA in bacteriophages)
    • Expression of resistance genes
       – Reversible induction/repression systems can affect
         resistance phenotypes

    Mechanisms of Resistance

    • Antibiotics exert selective pressure that favours
      emergence of resistant organisms
    • Bacteria employ several biochemical strategies to
      become resistant

     Mechanism of Action of -Lactams (2)

     • Penicillin-binding proteins (PBPs)
        – Membrane-bound enzymes
        – Catalyse final steps of peptidoglycan synthesis
          (transglycosylation and transpeptidation)
     • -lactams
        – Act on PBPs, inhibit transpeptidation

     • Gram-negative -lactamases
        – Major resistance mechanism in nosocomial GNB pathogens
        – >470 -lactamases known to date
        – Classified into 4 groups based on sequence similarity
             • Ambler Class A (TEM, SHV, CTX), C and D (OXA) are
               serine -lactamases
             • Ambler Class B are metallo--lactamases
        – Their spread has been greatly exacerbated by their integration within
          mobile genetic elements
        – Integron-borne -lactamase genes are part of multi drug resistance
          gene cassettes

     Group 1 (AmpC) -Lactamases

     • Produced constitutively in tiny concentrations by certain GNB
     • Induction of production:
         – Can occur by the exposure to certain antibiotics (eg, carbapenems)
         – Only in vitro phenomenon; not clinically relevant (stops when antibiotic
           use is discontinued; carbapenems not affected by these enzymes)
     • Selection of production:
         – Can occur by the use of certain antibiotics (eg, ceftazidime)
         – Also in vivo phenomenon; highly clinically relevant (does not stop when
           antibiotic use is discontinued; leads to selection and spread of ABR
     • Therapeutic options:
         – 4th generation cephalosporins (but resistance may occur with minor AA
         – Carbapenems

        – Arose through transfer of AmpC chromosomal genes into plasmids
        – Not inducible, with substrate profile (usually) same as parental enzyme
        – Highly prevalent in the naturally AmpC-deficient K. pneumoniae
        – Emergence predominantly in community-acquired infections
          (Salmonella spp., E. coli)
        – Co-resistance to aminoglycosides, SXT, quinolones

     Resistance to -Lactams

     • Extended-spectrum -lactamases (ESBL)
        – No consensus of the precise definition of ESBLs
        – In general: β-lactamases conferring resistance to the
          penicillins, 1st , 2nd, 3rd, and even 4th generation
          cephalosporins, and monobactams, not to carbapenems
          and cephamycins
        – Inhibited by -lactamase inhibitor clavulanic acid
        – Derived from Class A -lactamases (exceptions are Class
          D, OXA): TEM, SHV, CTX-M, OXA, VEB, PER,...
        – Differ from their progenitors by 1–5 amino acids
        – Marked and unexplained predilection for Klebsiella
        – Therapeutic options: carbapenems
     The Story of E. coli Resistant to Ampicillin

     • June 1964: ampicillin released in Europe
     • December 1964; the first case of ampicillin- resistant
       E. coli detected
     • Mrs Temoneira (Athens, Greece):
        – Urinary isolate of E. coli
        – Produced -lactamase (TEM-1)
        – Genes encoding the -lactamase found on a plasmid

     The Story of Klebsiella Universally
     Resistant to Ampicillin

     • SHV-1 enzyme: -lactamase with a narrow spectrum
       of activity (ampicillin)
     • Chromosomally encoded
     • If produced in high amounts:
        – May result in resistance to cefazolin and piperacillin
        – May even overcome β-lactamase inhibitors (clavulanic acid
          or tazobactam)

     The Story of ESBL-producing
     Enteric GNB
     • Third generation cephalosporins:
        – Developed in response to proliferation of K. pneumoniae
          and E. coli producing -lactamases active against ampicillin
          and first generation cephalosporins
        – Introduced in Europe in the early 1980s
     • Emergence of extended-spectrum -lactamases:
        – Cefotaxime marketed in Germany in September 1981
        – Cefotaxime-resistant Klebsiella isolate detected in Frankfurt
          in March 1982 (mutant of the gene encoding SHV-1)

     ESBLs in Non-fermenters

     • Emergence of transferable ESBL enzymes (Class A, B or D) in
       non-fermenters (P. aeruginosa, Acinetobacter spp.)
     • ESBL types often different (PER-1, VEB-1, OXA,…) from
     • Multiple resistance mechanisms co-expressed (chromosomal
       AmpC -lactamase, impermeability, efflux)
     • Non-fermenters should not be tested routinely for ESBLs
        – P. aeruginosa: «False-negative» (most ESBLs not inhibited by
        – Acinetobacter spp.: «False-positive» DD with clavulanate (intrinsic
          activity of -lactam inhibitors)
        – S. maltophilia: «False-positive» DD with clavulanate (inhibition of L2
          chromosomal enzyme)

     ―I don’t see ESBLs in my hospital‖

     Current ESBL Detection Methods Fail

     • Routine tests are not designed for ESBL detection
     • Low level ESBL expression will not be detected by
       current tests using low inoculum
     • MIC values and zone sizes of ESBL producers overlap
       those of susceptible non-ESBL producers
     • ESBL double disk test may be inaccurate if positioning
       is suboptimal
     • ESBL breakpoint methods are limited since MICs for
       different strains can range over 7 dilutions

     Resistance to -Lactams

     • Carbapenemases
       – Defined as -lactamases, hydrolyzing at least imipenem
         or/and meropenem or/and ertapenem
       – Belong to Ambler Class A, B, and D, of which Class B are
         the most clinically significant:
          • Class A: KPC, SME & NMC/IMI
          • Class B: IMP, VIM & SPM metallo -lactamases
          • Class D: OXA-23, -40 & -58 related

     Class B (Metallo)-Carbapenemases

     • Hydrolyzing virtually all -lactams
     • Mediate broad spectrum -lactam resistance
     • No clinical inhibitor available
     • Present on large plasmids and integrons
     • Genes are continuously spreading
     • Associated (80%) with aminoglycoside resistance

       Still rare but increasing, especially in non-fermenters

     Mobile Carbapenamases

     • Nosocomial outbreak of carbapenem-resistant P.aeruginosa
       and A. baumanii reported in Canada and France, respectively
     • Cross-resistance to other beta-lactams and to other AB classes
     • Link with aminoglycoside use, not necessarily carbapenems!

     Class D Oxacillinase — Carbapenemases

     • Class D enzymes
     • OXA-23, -24, -25, -26, -27, -28, -40, -49, -58, ….
     • Highly mobile (integron, plasmid)
     • Found in South America, South-East Asia, Europe
       (Greece, Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium)
     • Multi-drug resistance (penicillins and 3rd & 4th
       generation cephalosporins, BL/BL-inhibitors,
       aminoglycosides, SXT,…)
     • Variable resistance levels to imipenem and
       meropenem (4–>256 mg/mL)
        Rapidly Increasing Antibiotic
      Resistance Constitutes One of the
           Most Important Clinical,
     Epidemiological and Microbiological
             Problems of Today
