Australian Passive Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance (APAS) – third-generation cephalosporin resistance in Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae: prevalence of extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) phenotype

This report provides analyses of trends for resistance to third-generation cephalosporins, such as ceftriaxone, in E. coli and K. pneumoniae captured through APAS from 2006 to 2021.

Resistance to third-generation cephalosporins is a feature of organisms that produce extended-spectrum β-lactamases (ESBLs). This type of resistance has important implications for infection prevention and control and antimicrobial stewardship programs.
