The tested antimicrobials included Imipenem, Meropenem, Cefoperazone/ Sulbactam, Pipercillin/ Tazobactam, Trimethoprim/ sulfamethoxazole (TMP/SMX), Pencillin G, Ampicillin, Amoxicillin/Clavulanic acid, Chloramphenicol, Vancomycin, Linezolid, Amikacin, Gentamycin, Nalidixic acid, Ciprofloxacin, Levofloxacin, Ofloxacin, Cefixime, Ceftriaxone, Ceftazidime,Cefoperazone, Cephradin, Tigecyclin, Doxycyclin, Colistin, Nitrofurantoin and fosfomycin.
In contrast, penicillin (10 IU), erythromycin (15 [micro]g), cefoxtin (30 [micro]g), doxycyclin (30 [micro]g), clindamycin (2 [micro]g), and clarithromycin (15 [micro]g) tested for gram positives [25].
(f) Others in antibiotics including azithromycin (n = 1), clarithromycin (n = 1), lincomycin (n = 2), doxycyclin (n = 1), and vancomycin (n = 1).
(22) Tetracycline (TET), doxycyclin (DOX), kanamycin (KAN), and fosfomycin (FOS) resistance were also detected in the FCF624 strain (Table 1), showing multiple resistance phenotypes, rarely reported in Y.
Conversely, salmonella isolates demonstrated a high rate of resistance to ampicillin (81.25%), followed by amoxycillin-clavulanic acid (62.5%), chloramphenicol (34.38%), doxycyclin hydrochloride (25%) and Sulfamethoxazole-Trimethoprime (21.88%).
In the present study, there is a trend of increasing resistance to Cotrimethaxazole, Doxycyclin, Tetracycline, Gentamicin and Streptomicin.
Through recommendations of WHO, aminoglycoside treatment is applied for 2 to 3 weeks and the treatment continues with doxycyclin for an appropriate period.
We at the Department Of Microbiology, test Staphylococcus aureus against non beta lactam antibiotics such as Vancomycin, Linezolid, Ciprofloxacin, Doxycyclin, Fusidic acid, Cotrimoxazole, Chloramphenicol, Azy thromycin etc.
