Whole-genome sequencing of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhi reveals new antimicrobial resistant isolates

Collaborative research from scientists at the Mérieux Foundation (Lyon, France), the Child Health Research Foundation (CHRF) in Bangladesh and Applied Maths in Belgium have reported the discovery of independently-developed highly-resistant strains of Salmonella enterica Serovar Typhi, including ciprofloxacin and ceftriaxone resistance.

Published in mBio, the report details the teams’ genomic comparison of S. Typhi isolates from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nepal with findings confirming fears of antimicrobial (AMR) resistance evolution and spread.
