Antimicrobial activities of blinding tree, Excoecaria agallocha against selected bacterial pathogens

In aquaculture, the occurrence of bacterial resistance to synthetic antibiotics has become a serious problem. Therefore, research has been focused on finding new antimicrobial antibiotics from natural products to replace synthetic antibiotics. The aim of this study was to investigate the antimicrobial properties of mangrove plant blinding tree Excoecaria agallocha against selected fish pathogens namely Flavobacterium...

Antimicrobial susceptibility and sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) typing of Gram negative bacteria isolated from urinary tract infections in Mansoura, Egypt

The aim of the study was to determine the resistance patterns of Gram negative bacterial isolates recovered from patients suffering from urinary tract infections (UTIs) in Mansoura university hospitals, Egypt and also to investigate their epidemiological relatedness using sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) technique. The most prevalent etiological agents of UTIs were the Gram-negative...
