The mercury and antibiotic resistance of 338 strains of Escherichia coli isolated from hospital patients was determined. Resistance to mercury was found in 58.6% of the isolates. The frequencies of resistance to streptomycin (Sm), tetracycline (Tc), chloramphenicol (Cm), kanamycin (Kan), cephaloridine (Cer), and gentamicin (Gm) were 66.3, 60.3, 56.5, 42.9,(More)
Clinical isolates of Escherichia coli (148 strains) were studied for their resistance to chlorhexidine, six antibiotics and three metals. The distribution pattern of their susceptibility to chlorhexidine clearly revealed two peaks, and the resistance was differentiated by 5 micrograms/ml of chlorhexidine. Resistance to chlorhexidine was found in 12.8% of(More)
Clinical isolates of K. pneumoniae (746 isolates) were studied for the resistance to four metals and four drugs. The distribution patterns of their susceptibility to Hg, Cd and As clearly revealed two peaks, but only a single peak of resistance to Pb. It can be seen that resistance was demonstrable in media containing the following concentrations of the(More)
The benzethonium chloride resistance of 341 strains of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from Jikei University Hospital was determined. The distribution pattern of the susceptibility to benzethonium chloride clearly revealed two peaks, and the resistance was differentiated by 1000 micrograms/ml (0.1%) of benzethonium chloride. The frequency of resistance to(More)
The mercury and antibiotic resistance of 155 clinical isolates of Klebsiella pneumoniae (K. pneumoniae) was determined. Resistance to mercury tested was found in 64.5% of the total isolates. The frequencies of resistance to SM, TC, CP, KM and GM were 65.8%, 49.0%, 48.4%, 37.4% and 3.9%, respectively. And we selected 94 mercury and drug resistant strains,(More)
