The study was conducted to susceptibility to antibiotics and molecular level analysis of the cause of reduced sensitivity of Salmonella typhi isolates from patients in Babylon . Out of 50 blood cultures obtained during the study, 12 (14.0%) showed positive blood cultures were due to S. typhi and rests were mostly of S. paratyphi A. The prevalence was highest between the age group 3 15 year.. Among all S. typhi isolates, 41.4% were sensitive to ampicillin, cotrimoxazol and chloramphenicol… CONTINUE READING
