BACKGROUND The worldwide increase of food-borne infections with antibiotic resistant pathogens constitutes a major public health problem. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the prevalence, antibiogram, virulence genes profiles and integron characteristics of non-typhoidal Salmonella spp. isolated from poultry meat and diarrhoeic patients in Egypt. METHODS A total of 150 samples comprising (100 poultry meat and 50 diarrhoeic patients' stool) were examined for the presence of Salmonella… CONTINUE READING
