Carbapenem-resistant enterobacteriaceae (CRE) is a family of gram-negative bacterium that are nearly immune to the carbapenem class of antibiotics, considered the "drug of last resort" for such infections. Enterobacteriaceae are common commensals and infectious agents. Experts fear CRE as the new "superbug." The bacteria kill up to half of patients who get bloodstream infections from them. Death rates of up to 50%[2] can be seen in patients with CRE Sepsis, a rate much higher than other resistant infections such as MRSA or Clostridium difficile.
