Antimicrobial resistance of Escherichia coli isolates from outpatient urinary tract infections in women in six European countries including Russia

In the Northern Dimension Antibiotic Resistance Study (NoDARS), Finland, Germany, Latvia, Poland, Russia and Sweden collected urine samples from outpatient women (aged 18-65 years) with symptoms of uncomplicated urinary tract infection (UTI) to investigate the levels of antimicrobial resistance among E. coli isolates. This manuscript published in Journal of Global Antimicrobial Resistance presents the outcomes of the study.
