Abstract

Introduction: In the control of vancomycin-resistant enterococci (VRE), it is important to identify these bacteria rapidly and demonstrate their relationship with nosocomial outbreaks. In this study we aimed to investigate epidemiology of VRE strains by determination of clonal relationships of these bacteria.
