Study of Antibiotic Resistance in Salmonella Spp. Isolated from Turkeys Farmed in Zabol

Article excerpt

Background: Salmonella is a gram negative bacteria, caused problematic disease in human and poultry and could be con- sidered as a food born pathogen. The detection of antibiotic resistance patterns among Salmonella is a serious global con- cern. The objective of the presented work was to study the antibiotic resistance of Salmonella isolated from turkey farms in Zabol.

Methods: Antibiotic resistance phenotypes of 37 Salmonella isolates of turkey origin, farmed in Zabol, were investigated. All samples were assessed by culture method and standard biochemical tests for identification of Salmonella strains. The sensitivity of the Salmonella isolates was tested towards: Lin- cospectin, Gentamicin, Chloramphenicol, Tetracyclin, Cephalexin, Streptomycin, Trimethoprim-Sulfamethoxazole, Furazolidone, Ciprofloxacin, and Colistin according to Bau- er-Kirby method. Interpretation of the results was done ac- cording to CLSI guidelines M100-S17.

Results: All isolates were resistant to Cephalexin (100%). The most common resistant phenotypes belonged to Colistin (89. …
