RESEARCHES CONCERNING THE ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANCE OF ESCHERICHIA COLI STRAINS ISOLATED FROM URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS IN VÎLCEA POPULATION, BETWEEN 2010 - 2011

Journal Title: Current Trends in Natural Sciences - Year 2013, Vol 2, Issue 4

Abstract

The antibiotic resistance of pathogenic or opportunistic bacteria play a very important role in medical world, being the main concern for future of therapeutic solution. The urinary tract infections are considered the most common infections. The most common causes of urinary tract infections are E. coli strains, from Enterobacteriaceae Family, but another bacterial species might be implicated. For these bacteria the phenomenon of antibiotic resistance increased continuously. In this paper we present the results of investigation about 1090 children and adult patients (Rm. Valcea city, during one year) with symptoms of urinary tract infection, in MondoMedica Medical Laboratory. The samples were investigated by usual methods and bacterial agents were identified. The E. coli strains (43.54% of confirmed urinary infections) were tested through antibiogram for their antibiotic resistance. For tested strains, the bacteria presented high resistance to Ampicillin and Trimethoprim+Sulphamethoxazole, both in children and adult patient. The sensitivity of bacterial strains was higher for Gentamicin.
