Background & Objective: Urinary tract infection is one of the common infections in the Indian community. Distribution and susceptibility of UTI-causing pathogens change according to time and place. This study aims to analysis present trend of locally prevalent uropathogens and their antibiotic susceptibility for prudent use of antibiotics to combat antimicrobial resistance. Methodology: Total 135 urine samples from suspected UTI was collected from both outdoor and indoor patients during the…

Detection of virulence markers of uropathogenic escherichia coli from urinary tract infections and its antimicrobial susceptibility pattern

The knowledge of virulence factors of E. coli and their antibiotic susceptibility pattern will help in better understanding of the organism and in the treatment of UTI.

Detection of Extended spectrum beta lactamases in gram negative isolates causing urinary tract infection in Tertiary care centre

It is revealed that majority of Gram negative urinary isolates are ESBL producers, and multidrug resistant, thus strict policy with guidelines for antibiotic susceptibility testing and prescription should be followed to prevent further emergence of resistant strains and treatment failure.

Bacterial Uropathogens in Urinary Tract Infection and Antibiotic Susceptibility Pattern in Jimma University Specialized Hospital, Southwest Ethiopia

This study finding showed that E. coli isolates were the predominant pathogens and the presence of bacterial isolates with very high resistance to the commonly prescribed drugs leaves the clinicians with very few alternative options of drugs for the treatment of UTIs.

Distribution and Antimicrobial Susceptibility Pattern of Bacterial Pathogens Causing Urinary Tract Infection in Urban Community of Meerut City, India

Females within the age group of 26–36 years and elderly males of ≥48 years showed higher prevalence of UTI, and Nitrofurantoin was found the most resistant drug among all uropathogens.

Bacteriology of urinary tract infection and antibiotic susceptibility pattern among diabetic patients

Data from this study may be used to determine trends in antimicrobial susceptibilities, to formulate local antibiotic policies and to assist clinicians in the choice of antibiotic therapy to prevent misuse, or overuse, of antibiotics.

Frequency and susceptibility profile of pathogens causing urinary tract infections at a tertiary care hospital in western Nepal.

A high isolation rate of pathogens from urine samples of clinically-suspected UTI shows a good correlation between clinical findings and microbiological methods, and the antibiotics commonly used in UTIs are less effective.

Clinico-microbiological profile of urinary tract infection in south India

A high rate of ESBL-positive organisms and their resistance to commonly used antibiotics brings a concern for future options in treating these conditions.

Antimicrobial resistance among uropathogens that cause community-acquired urinary tract infections in women: a nationwide analysis.

There were no clinically significant age-related differences in the susceptibility of E. coli to any of the study drugs, but the susceptibility to fluoroquinolones of non-E.

Increasing prevalence of antimicrobial resistance among uropathogens causing acute uncomplicated cystitis in women.

While the prevalence of resistance to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole, ampicillin, and cephalothin increased significantly among uropathogens causing acute cystitis, resistance to nitrofurantoin and ciprofloxacin remained infrequent.


The most effective in vitro agents were found to be amikacin followed by gentamicin (among the parenterals), and ciprofloxin among the orally administratered ones.

Controversies in the laboratory diagnosis of community-acquired urinary tract infection

Microscopy to detect pyuria provides information on an important indicator of inflammation and it has been proposed that detection of urinary antibody may provide similar information, but neither of these indices of host response is suitable for use in a screening test for urinary infection however, although they may usefully contribute to the interpretation of significance of culture results.

The changing prevalence of drug-resistant Escherichia coli clonal groups in a community: evidence for community outbreaks of urinary tract infections.

The temporal decline in the proportion of UTIs caused by C gA provides evidence that CgA caused a community outbreak of UTI and the fluctuation and occurrence of other E. coli clonal groups in this community suggest that a proportion of community-acquired UTIs may be caused by E. bacteria disseminated from one or more point sources.
