Research for infection protection
Rod-shaped bacteria (bacilli)

Proteus mirabilis
(bacterium incl. ESBL/MRGN)



Curved, straight or bean-shaped: bacilli come in many variants and are widely spread.

Proteus mirabilis is a Gram-negative, facultative anaerobic, rod-shaped bacterium in the Enterobacteriaceae family. 

It is facultative pathogenic, but may trigger urinary tract infection, wound infection and pneumonia in immunocompromised people.

In recent years, the resistances to many antibiotic classes (also beta-lactams) has increased.

The main transmission path is direct or indirect contact with contaminated persons or objects.
