Abstract: 

In a recent article from China, a transferable resistance mechanism has been described in Escherichiacoli (E. coli), isolated from food-producing animals, meat and hospital patients (Liu et al., 2015).Recently, this resistance mechanism has also been found in Denmark, France, the United Kingdom andBelgium. Colistin is considered as one of the last resort treatments against multi-resistant bacteria inhuman medicine, especially for patients with cystic fibrosis. Alertness is needed and the new resistancemechanism has to be detected properly in animal and human related bacteria.
