Distribution (%) of IS16, resistance phenotypes and virulence, resistance and plasmid genes amongE. faeciumisolates. Black columns, isolates with STs typical for nosocomial E. faecium, grey columns, other E. faecium isolates. Significant differences (p < 0.05) between two groups are indicated by an asterisk. MDR, multi-drug resistance; AM-R, ampicillin resistance; CIP-R, ciprofloxacin resistance; HLGR, high-level gentamicin resistance; HLSR, high-level streptomycin resistance.
