Metronidazole Resistance of Helicobacter pylori Clinical Isolates in a Hospital in Iran and Protein Pattern of Two Strains Showing Differences in Susceptibility

Mahboobeh Nakhaei Moghaddam and Mohammad Nakhaei Moghaddam

Abstract:
Metronidazole resistant H. pylori`s clinical isolates from biopsy specimens at a university hospital in Northeast Iran were examined. Anti-Helicobacter pylori assay was performed by the filter paper Disc Diffusion Method (DDM) on modified egg yolk emulsion agar. Twenty two (56.41%) of 39 pure isolates of H. pylori were resistant to metronidazole. Metronidazole sensitivity determination of H. pylori isolates before treating patients is essential. Protein patterns of two strains showing differences in susceptibility toward metronidazole were different which indicates variation between two strains of H. pylori.
