Antibiotic resistance genes in diarrheagenic Escherichia coli (DEC)isolated from livestock organic wastes in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso

Diarrheagenic Escherichia coli (DEC) are often disseminated through the fecal matter of livestock and waste products including slurry and manure. The study aimed to characterize archived DEC recovered from cattle fecal matter, manure and slurry for quinolone resistance and extended spectrum beta-lactamases (ESBLs) with focus on trends in antimicrobial susceptibility patterns. The susceptibility of the bacteria was tested...

Antibiotics susceptibility profile and prevalence of gram-negative uropathogens/urinary isolates from asymptomatic bacteriuria among female students in a University in northern Nigeria

Asymptomatic bacteriuria among healthy female students is a common occurrence that is frequently ignored and this is attributed to the fact that pre-menopausal, non-pregnant women with asymptomatic bacteriuria experience no adverse effects and usually will clear their bacteriuria spontaneously. However, these women are more likely to experience subsequent symptomatic urinary tract infection (UTI) than women who do not have...

In vitro Assessment of Leuconostoc mesenteroides Zinc Nanoparticles against Salmonella Serovars Recovered from Broilers Chickens

Salmonella serovars are responsible for a variety of acute and chronic diseases in poultry. Leuconostoc mesenteroides probiotic can exert antimicrobial activity by producing diverse fermentative metabolites with bactericidal or bacteriostatic activities such as lactic and acetic acids, fatty acids, hydrogen peroxide or diacetyl and antimicrobial proteins such as bacteriocins and peptidoglycan hydrolase enzymes. Our trials...
