Antimicrobial susceptibility of Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains in Bamako, Mali

Pseudomonas aeruginosa is generally susceptible to antibiotics of the families of Beta-lactam, aminoglycosides and quinolones. The aim of this study was to evaluate the antimicrobial susceptibility of P. aeruginosa strains in Bamako, Mali. P. aeruginosa strains were isolated on Drigalski agar. Antimicrobial susceptibility testing was performed using the disc diffusion method on Mueller-Hinton agar. Among 317 non...

High prevalence of multidrug resistant enterobacteriaceae isolated from wastewater and soil in Jos Metropolis, Plateau State, Nigeria

The widespread emergence of antibiotic resistance, particularly multiple antibiotic resistance (MAR) among bacterial species has become one of the most serious challenges in environmental protection. Environmental bacteria are a reservoir of antibiotic resistance genes (ARGs) and a potential source of novel resistance genes in environmental organisms. In the current study, we investigated the high prevalence of...
