Plasmid-mediated tetracycline resistance in Haemophilus ducreyi.

By W L Albritton, I W Maclean, L A Slaney, A R Ronald and H G Deneer

Abstract

Clinical isolates of Haemophilus ducreyi were shown to be resistant to tetracycline. Resistance was associated in some strains with a 30-megadalton plasmid capable of transferring resistance in conjugative matings with other strains of H. ducreyi and other species of Haemophilus. Restriction endonuclease digestion patterns suggest a relationship between H. ducreyi plasmids and other tetracycline resistance plasmids in Haemophilus. The presence of plasmid-mediated resistance to the tetracyclines limits the use of these agents for the treatment of chancroid
