Salmonella kentucky detected by CHROMagar Salmonella Plus

13/02/2012


Recent outbreaks involving the multi drug resistant Salmonella kentucky were observed worldwide. Since 2002, it was only detected from travellers coming from Egypt, Tanzania, and Kenya. Since then, the French Institute Anses is observing a dramatic increase of the Salmonella kentucky presence worldwide. 
This strain is particularly dangerous due to its high level resistance to ciprofloxacin, this antibiotic being the common treatment for severe salmonella infections.
