BACKGROUND/AIM Extended spectrum beta lactamase (ESBL) production among E. coli is one of the principal mechanisms that augment resistance to antibiotics. In the current study the molecular detection of class A beta lactamases among uropathogenic Escherichia coli was evaluated. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 355 urine samples were collected from a tertiary care hospital in Peshawar. The ESBL production among E. coli isolates was detected by using the disc synergy diffusion method. Moreover… CONTINUE READING
