Abstract

To determine antimicrobial drug resistance patterns,
we characterized nontyphoidal Salmonella enterica strains
isolated in Liverpool, UK, January 2003 through December
2009. Decreased susceptibility to ciprofl oxacin was found
in 103 (20.9%) of 492 isolates. The lower susceptibility was
associated with ciprofl oxacin treatment failures and with
particular serovars and phage types often acquired during
foreign travel.
