|Abstract:||The aim of this study was to compare the population structure of three different representative groups of E. coli isolates causing urinary tract infections in a large area of Madrid, Spain: two groups of multidrug resistant isolates (MDR), ESBL- and non-ESBL producers, and one of fully-susceptible isolates (35 isolates in each group). Epidemiological relatedness was studied by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) and multilocus sequence typing (MLST). The presence of genes encoding ESBL was determined by using PCR and sequencing. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed by broth microdilution. PFGE analysis revealed a high degree of genetic diversity in susceptible and non-ESBL-MDR groups. However, the ESBL-MDR E. coli population was less diverse and a large cluster consisting of ST131 and CTX-M-15-producing isolates was detected. The present study revealed that ESBL-producing-MDR E. coli population was less diverse than the non-ESBL MDR group and that ST131 was dominant among CTX-M-15-producing isolates that reflects the spread of this successful MDR lineage.|
