Abstract

The genetic basis for antimicrobial resistance was studied in fecal Escherichia coli isolates in a Nigerian community in parallel with antimicrobial use. The results showed that fluoroquinolones, and not chloroquine as has been hypothesized elsewhere, appear to be the selective force for fluoroquinolone-resistant fecal E. coli in this setting. Jennie Crowe and Rebeccah Lijek are student co-authors. --author-supplied description
