Emergence and epidemiology of ESBL-producing Enterobacteriaceae (ESBL-PE) in Europe was monitored in a network of 24 centres in 2006-2010. A total of 105 local microbiological laboratories contributed data, overall reporting a total of 3410 ESBL-PE isolates, and three major regional clusters were detected. The proportion of ESBL-PE in Enterobacteriaceae isolated in Italy increased progressively during the study period (from 0.6 to 0.8%) in parallel with the increase in the proportion of CTX-M-type ESBLs (from 17% to 27%). The proportion of ESBL-PE isolates resistant to ciprofloxacin increased from 4% 0b46394aab
