BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Antibacterial susceptibility testing of clinical bacterial isolates through disk diffusion method plays a major role in antibacterial treatment. One of the main factors affecting the result of these tests is the type, structure and quality of the disks. The main objective of this study was to compare the agreement of antibiotic(More)
AIM The purpose of this study was to find the isolation rate of enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) from lettuce samples collected in Tehran. BACKGROUND During the last decade, the prevalence of infectious diarrheal diseases due to consumption of contaminated food especially raw vegetable has been increasingly reported. Enteropathogenic Escherichia(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Infectious diarrhoeal diseases are great problem throughout the world and are responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality. Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli (STEC) is a major cause of gastroenteritis that may be complicated by hemorrhagic colitis (HC) or the hemolytic uremic syndrome (HUS), which is the main cause of(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Early determination of antibacterial susceptibility increases the success of therapy, decreases unnecessary use of antibacterial agents and side-effects, and lowers the overall healthcare cost. MATERIALS AND METHODS A rapid colorimetric method for antibacterial susceptibility testing named Qui-Sensitest (Inovative Biotechnology(More)
AIM We intended to find out the diversity of EPEC isolates among asymptomatic or diarrheal children in Iran using ribotyping. BACKGROUND Enteropathogenic Escherichia coli (EPEC) is responsible for gastroenteritis especially in young children. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 39 EPEC collected strains were serotyped and the presence of virulence genes as(More)
