BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES The prevalence of multidrug resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa is the main reason of new drugs resurgence such as colistin. The main objectives of this study were to determine the antibiotic resistance pattern and the rate of colistin resistance along with its correlation with overexpression of MexAB-OprM and MexXY-OprM efflux pumps among P. aeruginosa isolates. MATERIALS AND METHODS Hundred clinical isolates were collected from 100 patients during 6 months in 2014… CONTINUE READING
