Microbiological Profile of Asymptomatic Bacteriuria in Pregnant Women in Volta Region, Ghana

Article in Press

Asymptomatic bacteriuria can lead to urinary tract infections in as many as 20% of pregnant women. Asymptomatic bacteriuria in pregnancy can also lead to preterm births and low birth weights. The objective of this study was to profile uro-pathogens and describe the population-based prevalence, the antimicrobial sensitivity pattern, and ascertain the risk factors for asymptomatic bacteriuria among pregnant women attending...

Phenotypic and Genotypic Characterization of Extended Spectrum Beta- Lactamases (ESBLs) Genes in Acinetobacter baumannii isolated from Critically ill Patients Admitted in Alex Ekwueme Federal University Teaching Hospital Abakaliki, Nigeria.

Article in Press

Gram negative organisms mostly produce extended spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) which is an important beta-lactamases enzymes known to confer resistance to an important group of antibiotics referred as beta-lactams. Antibiotics resistance has become a global problem and a threat for optimal patients’ care in healthcare institutions. To phenotypically and genotypically determine the presence and prevalence of ESBL-...

Phytochemical screening and antibacterial susceptibility of Escherichia coli O157:H7 isolates on Acacia ataxacantha leaves

Article in Press

Acacia ataxacanta leaves were screened for possible constituents, and the antimicrobial properties of the leaves were tested against 18 isolates of E. coli O157:H7. The leaves were aseptically collected and crude extracts were prepared by cold maceration in 98% methanol. Phytochemical analysis for bioactive constituents revealed that it contained carbohydrates, cardiac glycosides, steroids, saponins, triterpenes, tannins,...
