Antibacterial Susceptibility of Pathogenic Bacterial Isolated From Selected Automated Teller Machines within Kaduna Metropolis (Published)

Pathogenic bacteria such as E. coli; S. dysenteriae; S. typhimurium; P. aeruginosa; K. pneumoniae and S. aureus isolated from the Automated Teller Machines (ATMs) located in NNPC/KRPC (Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation/Kaduna Refinery and Petrochemicals Company); ABW (Ahmadu Bello Way); AAW (Ali Akilu Way); SCS (Shopping Complex around Station); KR/ST (Kachia Road/Sabon Tasha); KR (Kano Road Axis) and NAW (Nnamdi Azikiwe Way) within Kaduna Metropolis were subjected to antibacterial susceptibility test using known antibiotics. The result obtained showed that 30 (100%) of the isolated pathogenic bacteria were sensitive to Ciprofloxacin.

Detection of Bacterial Pathogens Causing Urinary Tract Infection and Study their Susceptibility to Antibiotics at Asuq- Alshukh Hospital in the Province of Dhi -Qar (Published)

This study of urinary tract infection has been planned to isolation and identification of bacterial pathogens. The urine were collected from 60 patients for a Suq- Alshukh hospitals they were including 23 male and 37 female . Patients aged between 15 to 70 years . Urine culture had been done for all the 60 patients who were included in this study . Only 45 patients had positive urine culture they were including 15 male and 30 females . The most common organism was Esherichia coli which was isolated from 14 patients with percentage of 31.1% . E.coli was the most prevalent followed by Proteus mirabilis 22.2% (10), Pseudomonas aeruginosa 15.5% (7) , Staphylococcus aureus 11.1% (5) , Klebsiella pneumonia 13.3 % (4) , Staph.saprophyticus 4.4% (2) and Serratia marcescenes 2.2% (1) . The antibiotics susceptibility test was done for all isolates to 8 antibiotics , Amikacin was more antibiotic that effect on all kinds of isolate , the sensitivity of isolates to this antibiotic was registered (95.7%) followed by Ciprofloxacin (80.7%) , while the highest resistant of all isolates was to Amoxicillin , it was registered (9.2%) .
