Nasal carriage of multi-drug resistant Staphylococcus aureus in healthy inhabitants of Amassoma in Niger delta region of Nigeria.
The prevalence of nasal S. aureus isolates and their antimicrobial resistance profile in healthy volunteers is determined and strategies to prevent their spread to more vulnerable populations where the consequences of their infections can be severe are needed.
Prevalence and susceptibility pattern of methicillinresistant Staphylococcus aureus isolates among healthy women in Zaria, Nigeria
The study investigated its prevalence in urine of healthy women and its susceptibility pattern to other antibiotics, finding it to be highly resistant to ampicillin, cephalexin, clindamycin, and gentamicin but had low resistance to pefloxacin.
A study of the prevalence of diarrhoeagenic Escherichia coli in children from Gwagwalada, Federal Capital Territory, Nigeria
Diarrhoea caused by E. coli in the Nigerian children studied is associated with several diarrhoeagenic pathotypes and a significant proportion of the healthy children were found to harbour EAEC and ETEC strains which may be regarded as potential transmitters of infection to vulnerable children in the study area.
Prevalence of community-associated multi-resistant Staphylococcus aureus among healthy women in Abuja, Nigeria
Multi-drug resistant S. aureus is highly prevalent in the urine of healthy women investigated in Federal Capital Territory, and calls for effective measures against irrational use of antibiotics.
Multidrug-resistant Intestinal Staphylococcus aureus among Self-medicated Healthy Adults in Amassoma, South-South, Nigeria
The need for sound education on the appropriate use of antibiotics and the importance of proper personal hygiene as means of controlling the spread of bacterial antibiotic resistance are highlighted.
Phenotypic and molecular characterization of antimicrobial resistant Escherichia coli from urinary tract infections in Port-Harcourt, Nigeria
A high proportion of the studied E. coli isolates co-expressed ESBLs, quinolones and aminoglycosides resistance genes which call for prompt antibiotic stewardship and preventive strategies to limit the spread of these genes.
Antimicrobial Susceptibility of Community-associated Staphylococcus aureus Isolates from Healthy Women in Zaria, Nigeria
An investigation of the antimicrobial susceptibility patterns of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from healthy women to ten commonly used antimicrobial drugs carried out as a basis for a guide for empirical antimicrobial treatment using urine samples called for measures to reduce the reservoir of antimicrobial resistant organisms in healthy populations.
Antimicrobial resistance of Staphylococcus aureus strains from patients with urinary tract infections in Yenagoa, Nigeria
The faster rate at which this pathogen is developing resistance to nitrofurantoin and fluoroquinolones is reducing their usefulness in the empiric treatment of uncomplicated UTIs, Thus, the need to adopt new strategies in the control of antibiotic resistance in this country cannot be overemphasized.

These Nigerian medicinal plants could be developed into cheap, safe and culturally acceptable standardized herbal products and may serve as a source of new molecules for broad-spectrum antimicrobial agents.
Virulence and antimicrobial resistance of common urinary bacteria from asymptomatic students of Niger Delta University, Amassoma, Bayelsa State, Nigeria
The observed high proportions of multidrug resistant urinary bacteria among asymptomatic University students call for the need of greater control of antibiotic use in this study area.
