The incidence of enteric fever caused by Salmonella enterica serotype Paratyphi A has been increasing in India since 1996 and in the first 6 months of 1999, 32% of isolates were resistant to both chloramphenicol and cotrimoxazole and another 13% wereresistant to more than two antibiotics.

A randomized synbiotic trial to prevent sepsis among infants in rural India
It is suggested that a large proportion of neonatal sepsis in developing countries could be effectively prevented using a synbiotic containing L. plantarum ATCC-202195, a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial in rural Indian newborns.

Blastocystis species has been extensively studied in recent few years to establish its pathogenecity. Present study was designed to identify and examine the association of Blastocystis sp. and its…
Reduced susceptibility to ciprofloxacin and gyra gene mutation in North Indian strains of Salmonella enterica serotype Typhi and serotype Paratyphi A.
The present study carried out molecular characterization of reduced quinolone susceptibility amongst the strains of S. Typhi and S. Paratyphi A, finding that the gyrA gene mutation is sufficient to confer resistance to nalidixic acid and reduced susceptibility to ciprofloxacin.
Evaluation of oral poliovirus vaccine delivery during the 1994 national immunization days in Pakistan.
Although a high proportion of children in each age cohort received NID OPV, in three districts children 0-11 months of age were less likely to receive NIDs OPV than were older children, and media effectiveness surveys provide important information that is useful for planning future NIDs.

The study has two implications: (i) Mycoplasma pneumoniae infection is frequently associated with secondary bacterial infection; and (ii) initial empirical antibiotic therapy for community-acquired pneumonia in India must include antibiotics with activity against Mycopa pneumoniae.
