Bacterial Proliferation in Municipal Water Supplied in Mirpur Locality of Dhaka City, Bangladesh
Water related environmental pollution has long been a major concern not only in Bangladesh but also in other developing countries. Present study assessed the pathogenic prevalence in municipal waterExpand
Prevalence of vancomycin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA) in methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strains isolated from burn wound infections
A significant fraction of VRSA was found among MRSA strains in this study, revealing the necessity for new and effective drugs against MRSA. Expand
Drug-resistant bacterial pathogens in milk and some milk products
Out of 80 samples studied, 74 were found to harbor pathogens within a range of 102-104 cfu/ml, including Escherichia coli, Salmonella spp. Expand
Prevalence of pathogenic bacteria in common salad vegetables of Dhaka Metropolis
Microbial quality of common salad vegetables collected from Dhaka metropolis was analysed to detect the presence of bacterial pathogens and occurrence of viable but non-culturable (VBNC) bacteria was noticed. Expand
Molecular Approaches for Detection of the Multi-Drug Resistant Tuberculosis (MDR-TB) in Bangladesh
Considering the higher sensitivity, specificity and accuracy along with the required time to results significantly shorter, this study supports the adoption of LPA and GeneXpert assay as efficient tools in detecting drug resistant TB in Bangladesh. Expand
Detection of Virulence Potential of Diarrhoeagenic Escherichia coli Isolated from Surface Water of Rivers Surrounding Dhaka City
Data revealed that as the virulent marker genes  were detected, diarrhoeagenic E. coli strains present in the surface water would become a major public health concern. Expand
Study of extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing bacteria from urinary tract infections in Bangladesh
Overall, the higher frequency of antimicrobial resistance as well ESBL production by the most common pathogens found in this study may demonstrate a public health threat and therefore, the community should be made aware of this problem. Expand
Isolation and Identification of Pathogenic Escherichia coli , Klebsiella spp. and Staphylococcus spp. in Raw Milk Samples Collected from Different Areas of Dhaka City, Bangladesh
Most of the raw milk samples were not satisfactory in course of public health standard as some pathogenic bacteria were detected from these samples, and frequent use of antibiotics should be prohibited since antibiotic resistant strains are continuously increasing. Expand
An Assessment of Microbiological Quality of Some Commercially Packed and Fresh Fruit Juice Available in Dhaka City: A Comparative Study
Assessment of the microbiological quality of fresh and commercially packed available juices collected from different locations of Dhaka city determined that the microbial quality of commercially packed juice was fairer than that of fresh juice collected from local market. Expand
Effects of plasmid curing on Rhizobium spp.
The present study reveals that the plasmid in rhizobial species might confer the antibiotic resistance and possibly involve in maintaining symbiotic relationships. Expand
