Abstract

BACKGROUND: The increased incidence of polymyxin-resistant MDR Klebsiella pneumoniae has become a major global health concern. OBJECTIVES: To characterize the lipid A profiles and metabolome differences between paired polymyxin-susceptible and -resistant MDR K. pneumoniae clinical isolates. METHODS: Three pairs of K. pneumoniae clinical isolates from the same patients were examined [ATH 7 (polymyxin B MIC 0.25 mg/L) versus ATH 8 (64 mg/L); ATH 15 (0.5 mg/L) versus ATH 16 (32 mg/L); and ATH 17 (0.5 mg/L) versus ATH 18 (64 mg/L)]. Lipid A and metabolomes were analysed using LC-MS and bioinformatic analysis was conducted. RESULTS: The predominant species of lipid A in all three paired isolates ..
