Assessment of antimicrobial resistance in avian pathogenic Escherichia coli Strains isolated over four years in Tunisian poultry
Avian pathogenic Escherichia coli strains (APEC) are responsible for major economic losses in poultry farms. The use of antibiotics has led to the emergence of resistant bacteria having direct impact on the food industry. In order to evaluate the resistance of 191 Tunisian APEC strains, we determined the antimicrobial resistance profile of these bacteria to 18 antibiotics by disk diffusion method. This study revealed...
Emerging threats of antibiotic resistance in Salmonella typhi and Salmonella paratyphi A among enteric fever cases of Dhaka, Bangladesh
Enteric fever is a severe public health threat because of the rising antibiotic resistance of Salmonella species in developing countries, especially in its endemic areas like Bangladesh. This retrospective study was aimed to assess the effectiveness of a range of 17 commonly used antimicrobials against Salmonella Typhi and Salmonella Paratyphi A isolated from 601 enteric fever cases in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
