The enteric pathogens isolated from diarrhoeal patients admitted to different hospitals of Azad Jammu & Kashmir were analyzed for antibiotic resistance and correlated with genetic elements in the bacteria.Salmonella spp. was the most frequently detected (35.8 %) enteropathogen followed by Escherichia coli (34.3 %), Shigella spp.(25.8 %) and Campylobacter spp. (4.1 %). The isolates of Shigella spp. showed highest resistance against penicillin, E. coli and Campylobacter spp. against carbenicillin,...
The Shigella strains, isolated from different clinical sources in Pakistan were screened for their resistance to antibiotics. Cotrimoxazole, Carbenicillin, Ceftizoxime, Chloramphenicol, Ciprofloxacin, Penicillin and Tetracycline. The isolates showed highest resistance against penicillin, followed by carbenicillin and Tetracycline. The isolates showed least resistance against ciprofloxacin, followed by chloramphenicol and cotrimoxazole. In the present study, 80% of the Shigella isolates were mult...
