Abstract

Acinetobacter baumannii is an important opportunistic pathogen that causes major public health concern especially in hospitalized patients due to the acquisition of multidrug resistance (MDR). The aim of this study was to systematically review published data about the prevalence rate of MDR-A. baumannii (MDR-AB) from different parts of Iran and provide an overall relative frequency (RF) using meta-analysis. All available national and international databanks were searched to find published studies up to June 2016. Quality of studies was assessed by STROB and PRISMA forms. Because of the significant heterogeneity observed, random effects model was used to combine the results. STATA SE version 11.2 was used for statistical analysis. Out of the 9646 results, 37 suitable articles were extracted according to inclusion and exlusion criteria. The pooled prevalence of MDR-AB was estimated 72 annually. Relative frequency of MDR-AB in different studies varied from 22.8 to 100. Since the prevalence of MDR-AB is higher than many other countries, measures should be taken to keep the emergence and transmission of these strains to a minimum. © 2017 Edizioni Scientifiche per l'Informazione su Farmaci e Terapia.
