Detection of biofilm formation of a collection of fifty strains of Staphylococcus aureus isolated in Algeria at the University Hospital of Tlemcen

The burden of disease caused by Staphylococcus aureus continues to grow; this organism has the ability to form biofilm and it is also a frequent cause of medical device and implant-related infections. The objective of this study was to evaluate the biofilm-forming ability of a collection of clinical isolates of S. aureus. In a total of 240 Staphylococcus spp. isolated from catheters, retrieved at five services...

Antibiotic resistance and plasmid profile of Leuconostoc spp. isolated from carrot

In the present study, a total of 56 isolates were isolated from different root vegetables. Out of these, 17 isolates were identified as Leuconostoc spp. All the 17 isolates were checked for antibiotic sensitivity against different antibiotics. Results revealed that majority of the isolates were resistant to Penicillin G, Vancomycin, Oxacillin and Ceftazidime. Four isolates (S-9, S-13, S-37 and S-42) were resistant to...
