Project title:   Epidemiology of Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae in Georgia. ISTC/G-2229.

01.01.2017  - 31.12.2018.    


Project Summary

a). Project Objectives:

Study of  Risk Factors and Molecular Epidemiology of Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae   in Georgia.

b). Project implementation:

  • Data collection for CRE prevalence and risk-factors investigation;

  • Identification of  Enterobacteriaceae strains and antimicrobial susceptibility testing

  • Screening of CRE isolates for carbapenemase genes;

  • Bioinformatics analyses of CRE plasmids.

c). Expected results:

  • Epidemiology and risk factors of the Carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae  will be studded in Georgia;

  • The epidemiology and distribution of carbapenem gene in Georgia will be studied.
