24 In our study 83% of sulphamethoxazole
resistant MRSA were found while they were 58.
pneumoniae were highly sensitive to most of the antibiotics tested except Trimethoprim/ Sulphamethoxazole
and Trimethoprim are the antibiotics to which largest number of E.
Drug treatment and follow-up: The children were randomly allocated to receive artesunate at a dose of 4 mg/kg bw in two divided doses daily for three days plus either cotrimoxazole at an equivalent dose of 20 mg/kg bw of sulphamethoxazole
component twice daily for three days or chloroquine at standard dose, 10 mg/kg bw as single daily doses on Days 0 and 1, and 5 mg/kg bw on Day 2.
In Saudi Arabia, Escherichia coli isolated from chicken intestines were found to be resistant to many antibiotics such as ampicillin, chloramphenicol, gentamycin, tetracycline, trimethoprim and sulphamethoxazole
(Al-Ghamdi et al.
These plates contained different antimicrobial agents (concentrations in [mu]/ml ampicillin (32), cefuroxime (16), ceftazidime (16), nalidixic acid (32), trimethoprim (8), sulphamethoxazole
(512), tetracycline (4) and ciprofloxacin (1).
8%) and significant resistance was also found against sulphamethoxazole
+ trimethoprim (co-trimoxazole) (67.
The antibiotics screened were, Impenem (Im 10 ug, Oxoid), Tetracycline (30 ug), Sulphamethoxazole
trimetoprine(25 ug), Vancomycin (30 ug), Optichin 10 ug.

The antibiotics were as follows ([micro]g): Ampicillin (20), Penicillin G (10), Cephalothin (30), Amoxycillin (10), and Sulphamethoxazole
They were also found to be 100% resistant to ciprofloxacin and ceftriaxone thus becoming multidrug resistant followed by tazobactam piperacillin (98%) and trimethoprim sulphamethoxazole
