Stenotrophomonas maltophilia is a common opportunistic microorganism and an important respiratory pathogen in cystic fibrosis (CF). The aim of this study was to determine antimicrobial resistance phenotypes, sequence-types (ST) and genetic determinants of antibiotic resistance in S. maltophilia strains recovered from CF patients in Russia. S. maltophilia isolates recovered from 170 CF patients were analyzed. Minimum inhibitory concentrations of antibacterial agents were determined using Sensititre Gram Negative GNX2F plates and the results were interpreted according to Clinical and Laboratory Standards Institute (CLSI) criteria. Whole-genome sequencing (WGS) was performed on MGISEQ-2000 platform. SPAdes software, Galaxy, ResFinder, Integrall and PubMLST were used for analysis of WGS data. S. maltophilia strains were identified from 24/170 (14%) CF patients. In total, 25 isolates were detected, two strains were isolated from the same patient. The isolates belonged to 17 different STs, including 5 new STs; ST4 was the most prevalent ST. Resistance to ceftazidime was observed in 60% of strains, to ticarcillin-clavulanate - in 32%, to levofloxacin - in 24%, to trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole - in 12% of strains. All isolates were susceptible to minocycline. All ST4 isolates were resistant or intermediate to ceftazidime and ticarcillin-clavulanate. In two isolates, the sul1 gene was detected. In one isolate, sul1 was part of a class 1 integron. The detected integron also contained the blaGES-7 and aac(6’)-Ib-cr genes. The ST4 sequence-type was the most prevalent ST among S. maltophilia strains recovered from CF patients in Russia. Antibiotic resistance genes, including sul1, blaGES-7, aac(6’)-Ib-cr, were detected in single strains.
