Abstract

Acinetobacter baumannii are gram-negative, catalase-positive and strictly aerobic bacteria who have developed high resistance on almost every type of antibiotic. They have high ability for adaption on enviromental stress and, because of this, they present big threat in health institutions. Resistance mechanisms are mostly based on mobile genetic elements: transposons, integrons and insertion sequence elements. They are helping in creation of resistance at different types of antibiotics: aminoglycosides, ß-lactams, quinolones, polymyxins, tetracyclines and glycylcyclines. Except this mechanisms, in this work are described methods for moleclar analysis and detection of A.baumannii strains (plasmid analysis, ribotyping, PCR-based typing methods, PFGE, AFLP and MLST). Also, there is short reference to clinical manifestations of A.baumannii infections.
