Table 4 Outcomes of patients with K. pneumoniae blood stream infections stratified by KPC status

From: Quantifying the clinical virulence of Klebsiella pneumoniae producing carbapenemase Klebsiella pneumoniae with a Galleria mellonellamodel and a pilot study to translate to patient outcomes

Variable KPC(+) (n = 15) KPC(−) (n = 60) p-value
In-hospital mortality 5 (33.3) 7 (11.7) 0.055
Duration of infection (median, IQR) 3 (3–4) 3 (3–5) 0.74
Carbapenem used post culture 6 (40) 4 (6.7) <0.01
LOS post infection, survivors (median, IQR) 18.5 (15–22) 7 (6–13) <0.01
  1. Note: Data are no. (%) of patients unless otherwise indicated.
  2. KPC = Klebsiella pneumoniae producing carbapenemase, IQR = interquartile range.
