ABSTRACT

Background and Aims: Resistance of bacteria, causing urinary tract infections, is increasing with indiscriminate prescription of antibiotics. Such resistance has even emerged in stronger antibiotics. This study was performed to evaluate the antibiotic resistance pattern in Escherichia coli (E coli) isolated in laboratories of Kashmar, with particular attention to nalidixic acid (NA) and co-trimoxazole (SXT).

Urinary Tract Infection in Neonates with Serious Bacterial Infections Admitted to the University Hospital of the West Indies

Issue: 
Pages: 
101–05
Synopsis: 
Urinary tract infection is an important cause of serious bacterial infection in neonates affecting 1 in 3 babies with proven bacterial infection and may be the first indicator of underlying structural abnormalities. The absence of specific distinguishing clinical features makes it necessary to include urine cultures in the sepsis evaluation of neonates presenting with symptoms suggestive of sepsis.


ABSTRACT

Objective: The aim of this study was to describe the epidemiology of urinary tract infection in neonates, with serious bacterial infections, admitted to the University Hospital of the West Indies.

A Comparison of Antimicrobial Susceptibility Profile of Urinary Pathogens for the Years, 1999 and 2003

Issue: 
Pages: 
95–9
Synopsis: 
There were significant changes in antimicrobial susceptibility. More isolates were resistant to common antibiotics in 2003 than in 1999.

Antibiotic Resistance among Pathogens Causing Disease in Jamaican Children with HIV/AIDS

Issue: 
Pages: 
386–92
Synopsis: 
The prevalence and antibiotic susceptibility patterns of pathogens causing urinary tract infections (UTIs) and sepsis in a cohort of HIV positive Jamaican children was determined. Cotrimoxazole is a poor choice for empiric treatment of sepsis and UTIs in this cohort.

ABSTRACT

Objective: There are limited data regarding the antimicrobial resistance patterns of pathogens in children with HIV/AIDS from developing countries. We aimed to determine the prevalence and antibiotic susceptibility patterns of bacterial pathogens causing urinary tract infections (UTIs) and sepsis in a cohort of 219 HIV-infected Jamaican children.
