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.

Antibacterial Resistance and Trend of Urinary Tract Pathogens to Commonly Used Antibiotics in Kashmir Valley

DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.013

Objective: Increase in resistance pattern of urinary tract pathogens to conventional antimicrobial agents used for urinary tract infections (UTIs) are gaining the attention of many microbiologists worldwide in respect to treatment of UTIs. The aim of the present study was to obtain data on resistance patterns of pathogens responsible for UTIs in Sher-I-Kashmir Institute of Medical Sciences (tertiary healthcare hospital) to currently used antimicrobial agents.

Antibacterial Resistance and Trend of Urinary Tract Pathogens to Commonly Used Antibiotics in Kashmir Valley

Issue: 
DOI: 
Doi:10.7727/wimj.2011.013
Pages: 
703–7
Synopsis: 
This study evaluated the increasing trend in antibiotic resistance pattern of uropathogens in Kashmir Valley, India. Escherichia coli was the most prevalent isolate. First generation cephalosporins were ineffective while aminoglycosides and third generation cephalosporins were effective antibiotics. Vancomycin was highly effective against E faecalis and Staphylococcus aureus.
