THE STUDY OF THE ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE PATTERN OF PSEUDOMONAS AEROGINOSA STRAINS ISOLATED OF CLINICAL LABORATORY FROM MARKAZI PROVINCE -Iran

Article excerpt

Background: The aim of this study was to determine re- sistance to anti-pseudomonal antibiotics in Pseudomonas aeru- ginosa strains.

Methods: 55 isolates of P. aeruginosa from different clinical specimens of clinical laboratory of Markazi province were isolated and identified through microbiological methods, including Gram staining, oxidase, Indol, and oxidative- fermentative tests. Antibacterial susceptibility test for imipenem, meropenem, amikacin, gentamicin, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, aztreonam, cefepime, piperacillin, piperacil- lin/tazobactam and ceftazidime was performed using disk diffusion (Kirby-Bauer) method.

Results: Of 55 isolates, 40 (72.7%) were MDR and 21 (38.1%) were PDR. 62.8% of the isolates were resistant to ceftazidime and 66.7% to piperacillin. …
