Background and Objectives: Urinary Tract Infections (UTI) are the second most common infections after the respiratory tract infections and constitute a great proportion of prescription of antibiotics. The present study was designed to determine the etiology of uropathogens and their susceptibility pattern in outpatients and inpatients of our hospital so as to arrive at an empirical treatment for patients with UTI. Materials and Methods : A total of 924 urine samples were obtained from… Expand
ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE OF KLEBSIELLA PNEUMONIAE STRAINS FROM PATIENTS WITH URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS IN SBMPMC HOSPITAL BIJAPUR, INDIA.
TLDR
It is stressed the importance of prior knowledge of the sensitivity pattern of the pathogen, before prescribing an antimicrobial agent for a meaningful therapy and to avoid fast emergence of resistant mutants. Expand
ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE OF PSEUDOMONAS AERUGINOSA STRAINS FROM PATIENTS WITH URINARY TRACT INFECTIONS IN SBMPMC HOSPITAL BIJAPUR, INDIA
TLDR
Among females, frequency of UTI was more among 21-50 years age groups and among males elderly patients were more commonly affected and the most active antimicrobial agent against Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolates were piperacillin-tazobactum (54% sensitive), closely followed by Cefoparazone –salbactam (48%).

Profile resistance of pathogens causing urinary tract infection in the pediatric population, and antibiotic treatment response, at a University Hospital 2010-2011
TLDR
E. coli was the most frequent pathogen of community acquired UTI and other uropathogens had a high resistance rate against TMP SMX and ampicillin sulbactam, and protocols should be based on local epidemiology and susceptibility rates. Expand
Antibiotic sensitivity pattern of gram negative uropathogenic bacilli at a private hospital in Dhaka city
Background: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is one of the most common infections affecting different age group of the patients. Objective: The purpose of the present study was to find out the spectrumExpand
Resistance profile for pathogens causing urinary tract infection in a pediatric population, and antibiotic treatment response at a University Hospital, 2010-2011
TLDR
It was revealed that E. coli was the most frequent pathogen of community acquired UTI and other uropathogens had a high resistance rate against TMP SMX and ampicillin sulbactam. Expand
A Study on Prevalence and Antimicrobial Resistance Pattern of Urinary Klebsiella pneumoniae in a Tertiary Care Centre in South India
TLDR
Though highly diverse microorganisms cause UTIs, Gram negative bacilli are the frequently isolated uropathogens and other gram negative rods are the most common pathogens to infect urinary tract. Expand
Microbiological Profile of Urinary Tract Infection in Pediatric Population from a Tertiary Care Hospital in
TLDR
Gram negative bacilli were predominant than Gram positive cocci in urinary tract infection in children, and E. coli was commonest organism with 15.3% of ESBL positive and 26.47% of total cultures positive were multidrug resistant. Expand
Antimicrobial Resistance in Hospitalized Patients with Community Acquired Urinary Tract Infection in Isfahan, Iran.
TLDR
It was found that imipenem, meropenem and amikacin were good choices for empiric therapy of complicated or severe hospitalized patients with community acquired UTI; and gentamicin, cefepime and ceftazidime were acceptable as initial choices in non-severe infections in the area. Expand
EVALUATION OF EXTENDED SPECTRUM BETA - LACTAMASE MEDIATED RESISTANCE IN ESCHERICHIA COLI AND KLEBSIELLA IN URINARY TRACT INFECTION AT A TERTIARY CARE HOSPITAL
TLDR
ESBL producing bacteria, area matter of concern in high frequency of antimicrobial resistance to non beta lactam and aminoglycocides antibiotics, are monitored to avoid treatment failure in patients with UTI. Expand
Aetiological profile and antibiotic susceptibility pattern in patients with urinary tract infection in tripura.
TLDR
Females were more affected than males, with majority of infections in the age group of 31-45 years (36%) followed by 16-30 years (29.4%), Klebsiella pneumoniae (11.8%), Staphylococcus aureus (10.3%) and others. Expand
