BACKGROUND Hydatidosis is a zoonotic disease of global prevalence. It causes considerable health problems and economic losses throughout the world, including Iran. The objective of this study was to assess the current status of echinococcosis/hydatidosis in the province of Ilam (western Iran). METHODS From April to September 2011, 65 stray dogs were(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of the study was to investigate the prevalence of vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA). MATERIALS AND METHODS Three hundred and fifty-six S. aureus isolates from the Imam Khomeini hospital in Tehran, Iran, were evaluated for methicillin and decreased vancomycin susceptibility by the microbroth dilution method. The(More)
The prevalence of glycopeptides, aminoglycosides and erythromycin resistance among Enterococcus faecalis and Enterococcus faecium was investigated. The susceptibility of 326 enterococcal hospital isolates to amikacin, kanamycin, netilmicin and tobramycin were determined using disk diffusion method. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of vancomycin,(More)
The MICs of imipenem, meropenem, piperacillin-tazobactam, cefotaxime, polymixin B and tigecycline against 80 isolates of Acintobacter baumanii from 6 hospitals were determined. A multiplex-PCR was used to detect the genes encoding carbapenemases. Field Inversion Gel Electrophoresis (FIGE) was then used to investigate the genetic relationships among the(More)
Diarrhoea continues to be one of the most common causes of morbidity and mortality among infants and children in developing countries. To investigate the incidence, antimicrobial resistance and genetic relationships of enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) in children with diarrhoea, a total of 612 stool specimens were collected in Tehran, Iran, and(More)
A total of 100 non-duplicate Acinetobacter baumannii isolates were collected from different hospitals in Tehran and were confirmed as A. baumannii by conventional biochemical and API testing. Antimicrobial susceptibility of these isolates was checked by a disk diffusion method in accordance with CLSI guidelines. The isolates were then detected as carrying(More)
Oxacillin resistance was present in 99 of 277 (36%) consecutive Staphylococcus aureus isolates collected from hospital patients in Tehran during a 15-month period (January 2004-March 2005). The majority of isolates (77/99 = 78%) had been cultured from wounds or blood. The staphylococcal cassette chromosome mec (SCCmec) types and antimicrobial susceptibility(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate, for the first time, the diversity of the genes encoding aminoglycoside-modifying enzymes (AME) and their association with class 1 integrons in Iranian Acinetobacter baumannii strains. A total of 100 multidrug resistant A. baumannii, isolated from eight distinct hospitals in Tehran, were enrolled in this(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the presence of common bacterial agents of otitis media with effusion (OME), together with investigation these agent in the adenoid tissue and antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of isolated bacteria in Iranian children with OME. METHODS Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and bacterial culture methods were used for detection and(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the mechanisms and patterns of antimicrobial resistance among the isolates obtained from burned patients with wound infections at a teaching hospital in Tehran, Iran. A total of 23 Acinetobacter baumannii isolates were collected from patients with burn wound infections between August 2009 and July 2010 from a(More)
