Detection of Extended-Spectrum Β-Lactamase (Esβls) in Aeromonas and Acinetobacter Spp Isolated From Clinical Specimens (Published)
Acinetobacter and Aeromonas cause wide variety of infections in human including wound , burn ,urinary tract infections and diarrhea. The clinical specimens including ( burn swabs, wound swabs, urine samples and stool samples) were collected between November 2015 and may 2016. A total of 195 samples were screened for presence of Acinetobacter and Aeromonas by culturing on appropriate media. The isolates were identified via biochemical tests and confirmed by API 20E system which revealed Acinetobacter baumannii (15 isolates) and Aeromonas hydrophila (11 isolates). The sources of Acinetobacter were from urine (2 isolates), Wound (8 isolates) and burn (5 isolates). While, the sources of Aeromonas were from burn (1 isolate) and stool (10 isolates) .The results showed that ESβLs enzyme produced from(2) of Acinetobacter and (3) of Aeromonas .The results also showed high rates of resistance to amoxicillin, ticarcillin and carbencillin in both bacteria.
