This study was made to find the prevalence of extended-spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)-producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae in neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) and to identify the risk factors associated with the acquisition of these organisms. Risk factors associated with ESBL-producing E. coli and/or K. pneumoniae acquisition status of(More)
Antimicrobial activities of the crude ethanolic extracts of five plants were screened against multidrug resistant (MDR) strains of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Candida albicans. ATCC strains of Streptococcus mutans, Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Streptococcus bovis, Pseudimonas aeruginosa, Salmonella typhimurium, Escherichia(More)
BACKGROUND Antibiotic resistance is common among bacterial pathogens associated with both community acquired and nosocomial infections. In view of the present problem of drug resistance we investigated the prevalence of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and amplified the mecA gene in the isolates from the hand swabs of the hospital(More)
A power system is becoming more complex and heavily loaded day by day. Earlier electric power systems were small and localized. Thus, Real and reactive power compensation in transmission line is essential which will improve the stability of ac system. Flexible Alternating Current Transmission System (FACTS) technology provides new opportunity to control the(More)
Tigecycline is the first Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved glycylcycline antibiotic. It has shown remarkable in vitro activity against a wide variety of gram-positive, gram-negative and anaerobic bacteria including many multidrug resistant (MDR) strains. However, it has minimal activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Proteus spp. To date,(More)
BACKGROUND The beta-lactam antibiotics, in combination with aminoglycosides, are among the most widely prescribed antibiotics. However, because of extensive and unnecessary use, resistance to these drugs continues to increase. In recent years, resistance in the Indian bacterial population has increased markedly, the majority showing complex mechanisms. Due(More)
Conductivity measurements have been carried out on aqueous solutions of two antidepressant drugs (nortriptyline hydrochloride and clomipramine hydrochloride) with four cationic surfactants (monomeric: cetyltrimethylammonium bromide, tetradecylammonium bromide; dimeric: 1,5-pentanediyl-alpha-omega-bis(hexadecyldimethylammonium bromide),(More)
Surfactant-protein mixtures have attracted considerable research interest in recent years at the interface of chemical biology and medicinal chemistry. Herein, the interaction between a green gemini surfactant (C16-E2O-C16) and a redox protein hemoglobin was examined through a series of in vitro experimental techniques with an attempt to provide a(More)
Water-soluble colloidal manganese dioxide has been used to oxidize L-tyrosine in aqueous-acidic medium. The kinetics of the reaction was studied in the absence and presence of non-ionic surfactant (TX-100) using a spectrophotometric technique. As the reaction was fast under pseudo-first-order conditions ([L-tyrosine]>>[MnO(2)]), the rate constants as a(More)
