Microbial Resistance of Staphylococcus aureus Against Commonly Used Antibiotics

Asma Nafeesa, Munir Ahmad Sheikh, Ikram-ul-Haq, Amer Jamil and Zahida Parveen    

Abstract: A total of 60 isolates of Staphylococcus aureus, 30 each from upper respiratory tract as well as from post operative wound infections were subjected to antibiogram studies. Staph. aureus isolates from upper respiratory tract were found 30, 53.33 and 43.33% resistant against ciprofloxacin, amoxycillin and chloramphenicol respectively. A similar pattern of antibiotic resistance was observed against the bacterial isolates from post operative sepsis. Susceptibility of ciprofloxacin, amoxycillin and chloramphenicol in such cases was found only to be 43.33, 10 and 3.33% respectively. The high bacterial resistance appears to be due to indiscriminate use of antibiotics.
