Molecular distribution of Plasmodium falciparum antimalarial drug resistance genes in Plateau State, North Central Nigeria

Malaria elimination activities are facing new threats, such as the global COVID-19 pandemic, which may deprioritize efforts to track the emergence of resistance to antimalarial drugs. This study aimed to determine the profile of genes for antimalarial drug resistance in Plateau State, North-central, Nigeria.This cross-sectional analytical study was conducted from January to September 2018 by screening 3114 asymptomatic...

Staphylococcus aureus sequence type (ST) 1 isolated from sub clinical mastitis in settled Fulani herds in Kaduna State, Nigeria

A study was carried out to monitor the sequence type of Staphylococcus aureus from bovine mastitic milk in Kaduna State, Nigeria. The dairy cows and fresh milk samples were analyzed for clinical and subclinical mastitis, followed by isolation of S. aureus and antimicrobial susceptibility testing. Twenty-eight S. aureus were isolated phenotypically from bovine subclinical mastitis which were further examined molecularly...

Prevalence of ESBL genes and antibiotic susceptibility patterns of Escherichia coli and Klebsiella species isolated from specimen of patients suffering of hospital acquired infections in National Hospital of Niamey, Niger

The nosocomial infections associated with bacterial resistance are a public health problem in hospitals. The aim of the present study was to determine the antibiotic susceptibility patterns and distribution of the blaTEM, blaCTX M, blaSHV and blaOXA ESBL resistance genes in Escherichia coli and Klebsiella species isolated from specimen of patients suffering from nosocomial infections. This was a prospective study that...
