Resistance of E.coli isolate from patient suffering from UTI toward Tri/sulfamethoxazole drug


Pathogenic bacteria of Escherichia coli (35 isolates) had been obtained from persons suffered from UTI from Baghdad Medical City hospital among the time between first December/2015 until first April. The samples had been detection by growth on MacConkey medium and blood agar, then identification by doing some morphology and biochemical parameters. In current study 22/35 (62.8%) of the samples were taken from patient woman and 13/3 (37.1%) take from patient man. Antimicrobial sensitive test for 2 antimicrobial was achieved by using disc diffusion method. The persistence isolates of E.coli was highest percentage 28.5% (10/35) to Ciprodar® while it was 14.2% (5/35) of Trimethoprim & sulfamethoxazole. determined the resistance rates in relation to the gender patients showed great different for resistant to Ciprodar® in male 17.1% (6/35) in comparison with 14.2% (5/35) in patient woman and for Co-tri in also female 5.7% (2/35) in comparison with 8.5% (3/35) in patient man.
