Isolation and characterization of phenol degrading Bacillus species from a Southeast Brazilian mangrove sediment

Phenolic compounds are common pollutants in industrial effluents and pose a significant risk to the environment. The microbial capacity to degrade these molecules makes the prospection of bacteria with this ability very strategic for bioremediation processes in contaminated areas. This study was carried out to isolate bacteria with phenol degrading capacity from Brazilian mangrove soil. Microorganisms were evaluated for...

Antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of uropathogenic microorganisms associated with vesico-vaginal fistula (VVF) patients in Abakaliki, South eastern Nigeria

The objective of this study was to review the antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of uropathogenic microorganisms associated with VVF patients in Abakaliki, South eastern Nigeria. Out of the 117 bacterial isolates obtained from 108 mid-stream urine samples of VVF patients, 72 isolates [15 (20.8%) Staphylococcus aureus, 8 (11.1%) Enterococcus faecalis, 12 (16.7%) Klebsiella pneumoniae, 11 (15.3%) Proteus mirabilis, and...
