Table 1: Putative virulence factors, antimicrobial susceptibility pattern and REP - PCR fingerprinting pattern obtained from 24 vancomycin - resistant Enterococcus faecium isolates from faecal carriage of hospitalised patients and environment of University Hospital of Londrina. Cluster analysis was performed using UPGMA algorithm and Jaccard co - efficient of the Bionumerics v. 4.6 software, with band tolerance set at 3% and threshold cut - off value set at 85%
