Dear Editor, The worldwide dissemination of New Delhi metallo-β-lactamase 1 (NDM-1), an Ambler class B metallo-β-lactamase (MBL) conferring resistance to all β-lactams except monobactams, is of great concern for public health. NDM-4, which differs from NDM-1 by a single amino acid substitution (Met154Leu), was demonstrated to possess increased carbapenemase activity.
