She had an indwelling catheter placed during her medical care and was given multiple antibiotics. On January 6, she returned to Rhode Island and was hospitalized for lymphoma. She underwent chemotherapy and required prolonged bladder catheterization and was given more than 20 different antibiotics during her treatment. On March 4, a urine culture grew carbapenemase-producing Klebsiella pneumoniae containing the New Delhi metallo-beta-lactamase (NDM) gene. ————————————————————————————————- 1. How does antibiotic therapy reveal the presence of drug-resistant bacteria? (Figure a) attached. a. A plasmid showing the NDM gene and clusters of drug resistance genes 2. How did some Klebsiella bacteria probably acquire the NDM gene and the multidrug resistance characteristic shown in the diagram? 3. What does the abundant amount of insertion sequences imply about the how the plasmid acquired the many other drug-resistance genes? Table Figure b ( attached) – Those who potentially had direct contact with patient 1 were screened to determine who also had contact with patient 2 (Figure b). 4. Based on the information in the table fig b attached) propose a theory on how the NDM gene was spread in the hospital.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
