Kuwait and United Arab Emirates (UAE) are 2 countries with worldwide significance in the context of global epidemiology of antimicrobial resistance. The extent of drug resistance in Salmonella spp. isolated from these countries was investigated by determining their susceptibility to 9 antibiotics using the E-test method. Amikacin, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, ciprofloxacin, and gentamicin had excellent activities against all Kuwait and UAE isolates with MIC(90)s ranging between 0.056 and 4.5 microg… CONTINUE READING
