Various clinical samples from all patients from different age groups, that is neonates (< 1 year), paediatric (1-12 years), adults and adolescents (13-65 years) and geriatric age group (>65 years) were processed for bacterial culture and antibiotic sensitivity.
The antibiotic sensitivity testing for the isolates was done using kirbey-baur disk diffusion test.
Phage therapeutics are uniquely positioned to address the threat of antibiotic-resistance as they can be precisely targeted to kill select bacteria, have a differentiated mechanism of action, can penetrate and disrupt biofilms (a common bacterial defense mechanism against antibiotics), are potentially synergistic with antibiotics and have been shown to restore antibiotic sensitivity to drug-resistant bacteria.
The aim of the present study was to determine the frequency of MRSA infection and the antibiotic sensitivity of the clinical isolates against test antibiotics.
Antibiotic sensitivity was checked with twenty four antibiotics by disc diffusion method.
The result of the above study exemplify there is an increasing need for gaining knowledge about the pattern of microbes and their antibiotic sensitivity and resistance, which varies in a geographical manner.
This study was aimed to determine the antibiotic sensitivity pattern of the commonest microbial organisms isolated from urinary tract infection.
Potent PHB-producing strains were screened for antibiotic sensitivity through sensitivity test using Mueller Hinton agar medium as well as Agar Sensitivity Test medium (BioWorld, USA) (Bauer et al.
Antibiotic sensitivity pattern revealed that maximum sensitivity was seen for imipenem (82%), followed by piperacillin + tazobactam (76%), amikacin (71%), ciprofloxacin (63%), gentamycin (58%), and ofloxacin (63%).
Antibiotic sensitivity test was carried out in bacterial otitis to appropriate proper line of treatment.
