Abstract

The antibiotic resistance exhibited by the bacterial isolates especially those belonging to the Enterobacteriaceae family is on the rise, which has become one of the great concerns to the world. If the isolated bacteria showed resistance to the commonly used first line drugs, then higher antibiotics were tried in treating the infections caused by them. But nowadays, multidrug resistance is becoming more common. NDM-1 is one of the metallobetalactamases, which is notorious in its ability of making the organism resistant to most of the drugs in use.
