Antimicrobial resistance and biological properties of Staphylococcus spp. isolated from pigs

Journal Title: One Health & Risk Management - Year 2020, Vol 1, Issue 1


Introduction. Representatives of the genus Staphylococcus spp. cause a significant proportion of diseases in animals and humans. Nowadays the problem of their acquired antibiotic resistance is an urgent concern. Material and methods. Isolation and identification of Staphylococcus spp. carried out in accordance with DSTU EN 6888:2003 standard. The antibiotics was determined by the disk diffusion methods.u Isncteeprtpirbeitliattyi oonf tohfe t hster areinsus lttos was carried out in accordance with the recommendations of the 8th version of EUCAST. Results. 77 strains of Staphylococcus spp. Collected from sows at the farm No. 2, were isolated: hemolytic properties were detected in 90.6% (39 coagulases positive and 19 coagulase negative); 22 (56.4%) strains of coagulase-negative Staphylococcus spp.; 13.6% of isolates had hemolytic properties.
