Pseudomonas aeruginosa Resistance to Various Commonly used Antibiotics in 27 Hospital Patients

DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.450
Synopsis: 
This study observed patient wound swabs at the University Hospital in Zagreb Croatia in order to determine antibiotic resistance patterns to Pseudomonas aeruginosa in our patients. It was found that Pseudomonas aeurginosa show a high degree of resistance (>50% resistance) to antibiotics commonly used in day to day practice.

ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study was to use wound swabs to determine antibiotic resistance patterns in Pseudomonas aeruginosa, which has been shown to be highly resistant to many commonly used antibiotics.

Determination of Antimicrobial Resistance and Resistant Genes in Acinetobacter Baumannii from Human Clinical Samples

Issue:

10.7727/wimj.2014.337
Pages: 
56–64
Synopsis: 
Detection of Acinetobacter from different samples suggests either an on-going infection or colonization of organ sources with A. baumannii. Resistance was observed in all antibiotics tested in different proportion and the organism was found to carry different resistant genes to different class of antibiotics, thus supporting multi-drug resistant characteristic of A baumannii. Multidrug resistant Acinetobacter infections are posing an increasing threat to the population in these communities. Carbapenems provide an effective option against infections caused by resistant A baumannii.
ABSTRACT
 
Objective: The aim of this study is to determine the prevalence, antimicrobial resistance and various resistance genes in Acinetobacter baumannii (A baumannii) from human clinical specimens at the payambaran and Baqiyatallah Hospitals in the city of Tehran, Iran, over a period of six months (September 2012 to March 2013).
