Abstract / Zusammenfassung
The first report of plasmid-mediated colistin resistance among Enterobacteriaceae in China sounded alarms in the medical community worldwide (1). Since then, Escherichia coli isolates harboring colistin resistance encoded by the mcr-1 gene have been globally reported (2). To our knowledge, we hereby report the first detection of mcr-1 gene in a human E. coli isolate from the Indian subcontinent.
