The antibacterial activity of the methanol, chloroform and aqueous extracts from the leaves, bark and fruit of A. marmelos was studied using disc diffusion method against Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus (Gram Positive), Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus mirabilis, Escherichia coli, Salmonella paratyphi A and Salmonella paratyphi B (Gram Negative).(More)
Background Methicillin resistant Coagulase negative staphylococci (MRCoNS) are opportunistic pathogens among HIVAIDS patients and serve as a large reservoir of Staphylococcal Cassette Chromosome mec (SCCmec) that carries mecA. Very little is known about the prevalent SCCmec types among MRCoNS from HIV patients and its molecular epidemiology. Hence, this(More)
Background Fusidic acid (FA)an inhibitor of protein synthesis has been used for treating superficial and some systemic infections caused by Staphylococcus aureus. Fusidic acid resistance in S. aureus has been reported throughout the world with prevalence ranging from 0.5% to 50% and is due to i) point mutation in bacterial fusA or fusE gene and ii) by(More)
Snoring disease, caused by the blood fluke, Schistosoma nasale which is snail borne trematode infection of cattle. It causes nasal granulomas in cattle and subclinical infection in buffalos. The present case deals with eggs of S.nasale in the nasal washings of affected animal and subsequent treatment and their uneventful recovery. Eggs of the particular(More)

Methods A total of 20 isolates of Staphylococcus aureus were isolated from 25 cases of breast abscess from a tertiary hospital during January 2010-October 2010. Isolation was done by culturing the pus sample drained from the abscess with 16 gauge needle. The S. aureus isolates were screened for susceptibility to various antibiotics including cefoxitin,(More)
Tuberculosis is a devastating disease throughout the world both in humans and animals. Its history is vast, which dates back to era of Robert Koch.
