  In this study, the sensitivity of 100 P. aeruginosa isolates to ciprofloxacin has been investigated by determining minimum bactericidal concentration. The susceptibilities of isolates to other antibiotics were tested using agar disk diffusion method. The isolates contains 67 isolate from urine, 19 isolate from wound, 10 isolate from sputum, two isolate from blood, one isolate from stool and one isolate from ear. Thirty-five percent of isolates showed resistance to 10 antibiotics and also to ciprofloxacin and were sensitive only to imipenem. Thirty-five antibiotypes were recognized for all the isolates. The rates of resistances were determined to antibiotics as follows: gentamicin 49%, ticarcillin 100%, ceftizoxime 78%, co-trimoxazole 97%, amikacin 35%, carbenicillin 65%, ceftriaxone 65%, piperacillin 53%, imipenem 2%, kanamycin 65% and ofloxacin 71%. Fifty-five percent of isolates were resistant to ciprofloxacin. In conclusion, ciprofloxacin-resistant P. aeruginosa has been frequent in our clinical isolates, this data remind the worldwide emerging resistance against ciprofloxacin and this is a serious problem in therapeutic management of P. aeuroginosa infections and has a local and worldwide concern.

  The aim of the present study was the evaluation of the antibacterial activity of Fennel essential oil on isolates of Acinetobacter baumannii. Forty eight isolates were collected from clinical specimens from burn wards of hospitals in Tehran, Iran between April and September, 2006. The susceptibility of isolates was determined using a broth microdilution method. Minimum Inhibitory Concentration (MIC) and Minimum Bactericidal Concentration (MBC) of isolates to Fennel essential oil were determined. The susceptibilities of isolates to different antibiotics were tested using agar disk diffusion method. The rates of resistance were determined to antibiotics as follows: cefazolin 100%, ciprofloxacin 100%, ofloxacin 95.8%, kanamycin 95.8%, carbenicillin 93.7%, ticarcillin 93.7%, piperacillin 88.9%, co-trimoxazole 79.1%, ceftizoxime 75%, gentamicin 70.8%, cefalotin 60.4%, amikacin 52% and imipenem 14.6%. Fennel essential oil possessed antibacterial effect against all isolates of A. baumannii. These results suggest the potential use of the Fennel essential oil for the control of multi-drug resistant A. baumannii infections. However, more adequate studies must be carried out to verify the possibility of using it for fighting bacterial infections in human.
