Emergence of Multidrug-resistant Salmonella Paratyphi B dT+, Canada

By Michael R. Mulvey, David Boyd, Axel Cloeckaert, Rafiq Ahmed and Lai-King Ng

Abstract

We document an increase in the number of multidrug-resistant Salmonella enterica serovar Paratyphi B dT+ identified in Canada. Most of these strains harbor Salmonella genomic island 1 (SGI1). Further studies are needed to determine factors contributing to the observed emergence of this multidrug-resistant strain
