Transferable resistance to betadine, chlorhexidine gluconate and cetrimide was observed in K.lebsiella aerogenes strains isolated from hospitalized patients. Resistance to these disinfectants appears to be mediated by a plasmid, like resistance to antibiotics. This resistance could be co-transferred along with resistance to ampicillin but not with gentamicin. Suggestion that resistance to ampicillin and disinfectants in mediated by a conjugative plasmid while resistance to gentamicin is mediated by a non conjugative plasmid.
