A woman in the US died after being infected by a superbug most likely during her visit to India, say doctors who found that the “nightmare” bacteria was resistant to all available antibiotics.The infection was caused by carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE), a multidrug-resistant organism associated with high mortality.While CRE are not new to the United States, what was new in this case was that the infection was resistant or non-susceptible to all available antimicrobial drugs, researchers said.The 70-year-old patient in the US was admitted to an acute care hospital last year after an extended trip to India.She was given a primary diagnosis of systemic inflammatory response syndrome, likely resulting from an infected right hip seroma.The infection was serious; none of the 14 antibiotics physicians used to treat the woman worked.After the CRE – identified as Klebsiella pneumoniae – was confirmed by lab testing, an isolate from a wound specimen was sent to the CDC for further susceptibility testing and to determine the mechanism of resistance.That testing confirmed the presence of New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase (NDM-1), an enzyme that directly breaks down carbapenems, a powerful class of antibiotics that are often used to treat multidrug-resistant infections.The US Centres for Disease Control and Prevention’s antimicrobial testing showed the isolate was resistant to 26 different antibiotics, including all aminoglycosides and polymixins – another class of last-resort antibiotics.It was also intermittently resistant to tigecycline, an antibiotic developed specifically to overcome drug-resistant organisms.Essentially, there were no treatment options.Meanwhile, the patient’s condition was deteriorating quickly.
