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.
